Many thanks to Px2Grafx for this bottle.
12oz brown bottle, I really dig the graphics on this one. 7.5 abv, and imperial amber, eh? Cant say Ive ever had one. If theres a date or bottle code on here, I dont see it. Quite frankly Im a bit too eager to drink the bastard to look very hard, though.
Nose is standard amber, with a noticeable hop kick. Sweet overtones to boot.
Pouring in to my trusty Arrogant Bastard pint glass. Not as opaque as I had expect, looks like a decent IPA. A very clear burnt orange with just a hint of amber. ¼ inch head faded quickly (I did have to fish a speck of something out of the head with my finger, which I imagine aided in its speedy demise). Not a whole lot of bubbles coming from the bottom of the glass, but theyre definitely there. Not a whole lot of lacing action, but there is some.
Pretty tasty. Very IPA inspired, in my humble opinion. The amber is almost an afterthought. Very well balanced, not as complex as I had anticipated. A slight caramelly flavor rushes into a burst of very piney hops, with just a slight hint of fruity sweetness at the end. This all passes very quickly, with the hop taste being the predominate flavor. Its quite tasty, just not very complex. This leaves it very drinkable, however, and the mouth feel is very passive, but pleasing.
