4.13/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a Sam Adams glass.

Pours yellow, clear as water, with very little head but surprising lacing.

The aroma is interesting, if a bit incongruent to the flavor. The aroma is earthy, almost compost-like (this is a good thing), with floral aromas very noticeable. From the way it presents, I thought this was going to taste like a bouquet of lilies smells.

The flavor, however, totally belies the aroma. Lots of melon sweetness. Very rich, deep flavor. For how sweet and melony it is, it's fantastically dry and bitter on the finish, which adds some serious complexity. For a mass-produced, readily available, moderatly-high ABV IPA, this one has tons of depth and intrigue.

Finishes dry, but leaves a good deal of sweetness behind as well. Very neat finish.

This is a great go-to beer for bang-for-the-buck. It's not the cleanest, nor most flavorful or bitter IPA, but given the availability and potency, it's worth every penny. I go back to this brew frequently.

I have had this on tap, bottle, and from a 12oz can.

This is my favorite beer that is not distributed in Texas. I feel that most complaints on here about this beer is that people are reviewing it as a double IPA. I don't believe this beer is. The label simply refers to it as an "Imperial Pale Ale" and while visiting the brewery they did not refer to it as a double IPA. As such, if you take it as a regular IPA then this beer is incredible and full of resin hop flavor. The light color appearance may surprise some but I don't see it as an issue. During my tour at the Troegs Brewery I got to sample this straight from the fermentor and it was fantastic. This is the single beer I look forward to the most when I visit Pennsylvania.
