Smell is overwhelming amount of bursting juicy citrus smells along with that brandied fruitcake smell of their 90 minute. I also get a woody like malty sweet smell as well. You get the hop bite at the beginning and then ending with woody sweet malt flavors and citrus, grapefruit rinds and a resinous dry aftertaste from the hops. The smell and taste remind me of their Burton Baton but with more of a citrus fruity taste from the hops. I oddly get that almost oak wood flavor as well but not as much as Burton Baton though. The bitterness really evolves on the back of your tongue as you drink it more and reminds you that this Imperial IPA means business.

I'd say this is more hop forward in smell and a bit more bitter than the 90 minute. It's like the 90 minutes older brother. The malt really comes into play in this beer so it isn't just an enormous hop bomb with rich sweet oak and caramel tastes. They really make sure not to skip out on the malt taste at all here either... which is why I can see how people can call it very malty but this is what Dogfish does best...which is balance their beers with enormous amounts of rich ingredients. Top notch and definitely one of my favorite Imperial IPA's of all time.
