Tangerine brew with an eggy dry head. Sparse bubbles cascading to the surface.
Classic Centennial hop profile of grapefruit, orange, and pine. Alcohol is evident. 10% sounds about right where this nose is at. Malts show off a light caramel note. So far, proving to be a risky choice for a single-hop imperial.
Bristling hop bitterness with lots of grapefruit and pine. Some orange. Spine-tingling booze isa very warming. Malts are semi-sweet, yet paler than toasty. Lots of hops, hops, hops. One-note, because it's single hop. I liked El Dorado a lot more.
Mouthfeel is spicy hot with booze. Body is medium; carbonation, too. Not bad, sans the big strength.
Eh. So-so on this one. I'll take it over most beers, but there are just too many other good DIPAs out there.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle into glass
A - Clear golden color with a medium sized off-white creamy head with good retention, slowly recedes to a thin film on top. Leaves heavy lacing
S - Orange, Grapefruit, booze, light malt
T - Grapefruit and lemon, then orange, bread, alcohol bite, sweetness, and a little caramel malt, got very boozy as it warmed
M - Heavy and creamy mouthfeel, moderate/low carbonation
O - An interesting and enjoyable brew, a little on the sweet side. Began to taste a lot like booze as it warmed up
