Recently received from IBUnit63 in a trade - thanks for the opportunity, Larry.

Appearance is nice - a bronze orange color with golden highlights. Nice light head, not particularly big, but it's fluffy and enticing.

The nose is hoppy, as expected, with nice malts coming through on the back end. The nugget hops here are a nice change, which I'd call more herbal or grassy than most.

The taste is like a hoppy amber, but it's not quite imperial as the label asserts. Very tasty, and toasty too, to balance the hops. This is good drinking beer right here, but it doesn't make me say wow in the flavor department.

The mouthfeel on this one is about medium. It's a bit sticky too, which is quite enjoyable. Carbonation is just right.

Drinkability...well, this is quite good. If I had access to this around me, I'd probably buy a six pack every release. I was really glad to have been able to try it, but I probably won't seek it out intentionally in a trade.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint.

A: Dark amber. Pours a 1 finger, frothy, white head. Persistently lingers, never fully dissipates. Thick beer ring lacing remains.

S: A little roasted pecan, caramel, and floral hops.

T: Roasted malt, with a bit of bitter roasted pecan balanced with a crisp, distinctive hop bite.

M: Malty and earthy, with a bit of a syrupy texture. Malt and hop both linger on the palate.

D: Sip and savor. Worth the ride.

Atmosphere is really nice. Dark hue, persistent frothy head, and plenty of beer ring lacing. Nose is roasty, with sweet and floral components. Malty, a little bitter nutty character, and a crisp hop bite. Overall, this is a really good quaff.
