Poured into becker. Clear orange with a fluffy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Smells floral and citrusy, not bitter at all. Tastes hoppy at first but smooths out into a smooth malty drinkability-ness that is delicious. Mouthfeel is medium and clean. Delicious!

Poured just like other say - red with a nice head. Looks like it "should". Bottle label interesting, without being over the top.

Smell - You'd think that "imperial" would have you smelling insanely bitter hops across the room, but it's rather pleasant citrus with light hop smell. My no-alcohol wife even says it smells inoffensive when she normally hates the smell of most beers, and that's a lot to say about an "imperial" variety.

Taste - 93ish IBU? Perhaps, but very floral hops, not the bitterness one would expect. Extremely drinkable, goes down easy despite having a lot of taste. I dare say that there's sweetness, but not enough to bother a hophead.

Mouthfeel - Exact amount of carbonation, not too much or little. Thick, but you won't need a fork and knife.

Overall - Extremely impressed and quite surprised. I had no idea I was buying such a good beer with this. Buy more than one; you'll want to have a couple because of the drinkability.
