Reviewed from notes. Twelve oz. bottle hand-delivered from NYC. Poured into a Westbrook pint glass.
A: Clear gold, with a one-finger white head that fades quickly on top of a few bubbles of visible carbonation.
S: Pine, citrus and tropical fruit hops over some light malt sweetness. Not a big nose at all.
T: Grapefruit, citrus rind and pine resin with a clean light malt sweetness without particular caramel aspects. Significantly more bitterness through the swallow and the hang than expected.
M: Light body, carbonation sensation on the low side, low alcohol presence.
O: I thought when I was drinking this it was an American IPA. Then I see it listed on here as an IIPA. After closer examination of the bottle, I see it indicated as an "Imperial Pale Ale". I have no idea what that's supposed to be, but this sure didn't drink like an IIPA. It's an adequate IPA, nothing particular to complain about. It just doesn't quite hit the right notes in aroma and flavor.
