4.45/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: A clear, deep reddish-amber pour. Large dense light tan head. Retention is quite good, never quite fades. The lacing leaves big fluffy remnants everywhere.

S: HUGE sweet orange aroma backed up with a little bit of resin and pine. Almost equally huge sweet malt backbone with mostly caramel. I get a little bit of peach here and there.

T: Nice bitterness up front with orange, grapefruit, mango and perhaps peach like the nose. Hugely sweet caramel malt is everywhere too, balancing the intense bitterness. Finish is more resinous and piney. Swear I get a little honey sometimes, almost like a hopslam. No indication of alcohol whatsoever.

M: Medium bodied, smooth. A touch drying on the back end.

O: Great imperial amber. It has an intense hop character but an equally intensely sweet malt to balance it. It makes me think of a lighter version of a 120min in a way. Pinnacle of the style. The only thing that comes close is Zoe, which is great in a different way.

Bought this one in Baltimore on advice of my son. Pours a hazy amber with white head. Aroma is more malty than expected. Biscuity, sweet and some pine notes. Taste is more bitter than the nose, moderate to heavily bitter. The caramel sweetness and biscuits make a nice backbone to the pine, resin hoppy bitterness. Crisp mouthfeel. A solid effort for a hoppy IPA.
