Clear apricot colored with a wispy white head that disappears quickly. Inviting aroma of tangerines and subtle pine. Bright flavors of citrusy hops, lots of tangerine, orange, and grapefruit rind, more flavorful than bitter, though a subtle bitterness offsets the honey malt flavors. Slightly slick mouthfeel, but a damn good beer.

Great to see that Troegs has finally made it to NC.I poured one and a half bottles into an imperial nonic,a clear bass color with a lacey thinner white head atop.Nice hop complexity in the nose with some fresh cut grass,pine resin,and tropical fruits over top of a nutty and mildly sweet caramel/biscuit base.The hop complexity also transitions over to the flavors,herbal and grassy with some light sweet onion,and tropical fruits,the malts have complexity to boot,nutty and somewhat sweet caramel with a shot of alcohol in the finish.Damn this is what harvest ales strive to be,another big winner here from Troegs!

Found this to be pretty malty and sweet for the style but perhaps will be more favored by those who enjoy maltier IPAs.
