Athletic bright pale gold over a loose snow white lagery head that is super lacey. Big musty lemon (Citra?) nose with some biscuit.
Lemon marmalade one table water crackers, some salt, then hops kick in as oily lemon rind, some flowers and very gentle citrus, maybe tangerine.
Lemonheadz end and dry citrus finish. Medium, soft, round, easy.

Similar to Jarl, with more complexity and malty smoothness. No sign of Nugget dry-hopping. Way too drinkable for 7.5%. Calls itself an Imperial Pale Ale, and so it is.

On tap at the brewery.

A: The IPA is definitely pale, a lighter golden yellow color that is transparent and very bright under the right light. A white head patiently laces as it dissapates.

S: The nugget aromas make me anxious for Nugget Nectar, a soft citrus grassy bitterness that builds in intensity. The alcohol, this time around, is subdued, allowing the hoppiness to stake its claim.

T: Orange and lemon zest, citrus with a dry feel, practically leap out of my glass (but not right away). The booziness is more prominent here than in the nose. My biggest complaint about the tap lines at Troegs: the ales are too damned cold. The hoppiness is lost to the temperature. As the ale warms, the hops become stronger, more evident. The citrus and zest are light but increase with each sip, strong but never out of whack. Pale malts aren't a factor but they keep the hops in

22oz bottle courtesy of THE CPJ. Cheers!

Pours a hazy light gold with a fluffy white head that settles to a squat cap. Resinous hop aromas of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, and peach with a touch of pine resin and a slightly sweet malt backbone. Taste is similar to the nose, lots of delicious tropical hop flavors with a fairly mild caramel malt profile. Finish is pleasantly bitter, and lingers for a good amount of time. Mouthfeel is smooth and crisp, with a medium body and good carbonation. Overall an excellent IPA offering, this would be a good addition to Troegs' year-round offerings!

Thanks to hopdog...
Appears a transparent orange with a mild white cap that slowly fades into a gentle head and collar. Scattered spotty bits of lacing is left around the interior.
Smell is of orange, citrus, and spicy pepper.
Taste is of the aromas with a punch of pine needles, and balanced citrus.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, balanced with a gentle abrasive spiciness along the tongue.
