This beer was an absolute godsend. My good friend brought it back to Korea after a trip home to the states. It was one of the beers I hadn't even asked for, but after the guy at the store saw the list I had furnished my friend he picked out that some more hops wouldn't hurt.
The beer poured out a deep copper color with a spot of yellow tinted white head atop. This slowly receded into a slick of bubbles that remained with some considerable lacing sticking to the side of my glass. The nose on this beer was outstanding with deep rolling notes of pine hops mixed with just the slightest bit of caramel maltiness and a slightly boozy effect with a deep pull of air. The first blush revealed an immensely full bodied flavor mixing a sharp alcohol with grapefruit and pine hop flavoring and just the hint of malty backbone that any "imperial" should possess. The carbonation was nice and gentle leaving a creamy and altogether pleasing effect on my mouth. It was slightly warming in the finish and the perfect beer to drink in the humid monsoon of the Korean summer. After consideration I would say that this beer reminds me of a slightly higher octane version of Victory's Hop Devil. Simply delightful. If I could get a few cases of this shipped to me here life would be just about complete!
