12oz brown bottle, sample from the brewery.

Bright golden hue, amazing lacing ... bubble show up the glass. Nostrils are slightly accosted by Galaxy hops and clean alcohol. Good amount of bitterness, soft citrus rind, pine, tea, peppercorn, and grassiness from the Galaxy hops. Malt base is enough to hold up to this onslaught and the 10% abv certainly brings it on for the Imperial IPA style. A lot of fun sipping this one.

A: This poured a clear gold with lots of off white head.
S: It smelled like fresh peaches and pine, with some honey and grapefruit.
T: It tasted like grapefruit and resin, with some peaches and honey. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M: It was thick with some carbonation. Great big body.
D: This was a fantastic IPA, with delicious scent and taste. The body was solid, but the finish was a little hot, so it should be sipped. Best beer by Flying Dog ever.

12 oz bottle poured into a Snifter

A: Nice Deep copper color a little head dissipates quickly

S: deep mango, pineapple, beautiful, some slight malts

T: it's really good fruity pineapple tasting boozy though you are tasting that Booze but the beer is so flavorful

M: it clings, but I think it's medium mouth feel it lingers on the tongue

O: this is a tasty beer, it's boozy as all get out but it's got a great taste it's fruity and got a nice malt backbone
