This beer is very good, but it is a bit overhyped.
A: This beer has a great appearance. A light amber with a nice head and moderate lacing.
S: The smell indicates that there is a very nice selection of hops used in this beer. My only complaint would be that it simply doesn't smell enough.
T: The taste on this beer is phenomenally balanced, but overhyped nonetheless. Expect an IPA balance with hops up front and roasted malt used in the background. A more complex taste than your average IPA, but not quite as gratifying as I expected for something that has "Imperial" on the label. Don't get me wrong, this is still great.
M: Too carbonated.
D: Very drinkable stuff. This was gone in no time.
Overall, I think this beer is a little overhyped. I whipped out my standard beer, Bell's Two-Hearted Ale after having this and, well, I still prefer the Two-Hearted, I hate to say it. It has more hops, more sweetness, and just more flavor in general. I was considering buying a six-pack of this given the hype, but now I think I will pass. Many have assured me that this is the hop head's delight but as a hop head I was let down.

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.
