look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours clear and light reddish orange in color. Definitely on the lighter side for an amber but well within style. Totally filtered and fresh with a nice solid white frothy head on top that settles into an ever present cap with nice stickiness at the edges and soft lacing spotted up with side. Tiny carbonation lazily floats up feeding this nice head situation.

The aroma is strongly hop forward and starts with subtle fruit and floral notes and moves to a slightly more sweet middle with citrus followed by an underlying ammonia notes. Resiny throughout with a moderate sweetness that makes for an aroma that's complex almost melony but also almost unpleasant.

Strong hop resins and oil up front with moderate fruit flavors. Overall this is too hop dominant without a backing malt quality. The hops are used too extensively with little balancing flavors. The hop choice, nugget, is unpleasant for an imperial amber. The alcohol that comes through is astringent and unconnected to the other flavors of the beer.

Mouthfeel is oily up front followed by a cloying sweet finish and lingering bitter aftertaste that doesn't invite me to drink more. I am a hop fan and I realize this is a highly favored beer but the drinking experience doesn't match the apparent popularity. The ingredient choice and integration leaves an unbalanced beer with overly assertive qualities
