Acquired this in a recent trade with tai4ji2x. Bottled around mid-January, which makes it about four months old. Poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: Clear, orange-amber, body with creamy, frothy, off-white, head. Retention is okay - dies to a soapy ring after a few minutes. Tons and tons of lace with this one. Looks mean.
Smell: Tons of sweet grains. Caramel, pine, toastiness, wood, spice, and then there's the hops! Sweet, herbal, floral, hops with added citrus to boot! Damn!
Taste: Mouthful of toasted bread and grain. Good dosage of caramel and citrus keeps things sweet, but not overly so. Hop bite is mild; nowhere near the listed 93 IBUs. Lots of herbal and floral characters in here. This is super, super smooth! Hops form a sweet, resinous, citrus flavor as well. Simple, but ridiculously tasty and balanced. Best amber I've ever had - hands down!
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied; much lighter than I expected from an "Imperial Amber". Carbonation is perfect and makes this one velvety smooth. Sticky, resinous, and a little gritty. Nicely done.
Drinkability: What an awesomely drinkable beer! The best balanced amber I've ever had. Flavor profile isn't too pungent or mild; it's exactly where it needs to be. More of a warm weather beer (perfect right now). I could easily drink this all day long.
Serving type: bottle
