From a bottle into a pint glass. Pours golden/orange, sort of the color of honey, with a finger or more of white head that lingers for a bit, leaving lacing on the sides of the glass. Some tiny carbonation bubbles coming off the bottom of the glass here and there.

Smell is resinous and piney with some citrus in the mix. Also some floral notes. A very nice smelling beer.

I'm still not sure if this is supposed to be a Double IPA, a regular IPA, or an "Imperial Pale Ale" as the label states, which would be a bit different than an IPA, no?

This doesn't taste like any other IPA I've ever had. It lies somewhere near that mark, but it's different. Then again, Troegs always does things differently, and that's part of their charm.

It starts out with some sweetness, some citrus and some malt in the middle, but that is quickly taken over by a heap of bitterness and an extremely dry finish. A definite hop bomb. Some onion/garlic or earthy/herbal qualities to it as well.

I see a lot of folks raving about this, but it's no Nugget Nectar, that's for sure. I was really looking forward to this, because I missed it the first time around, but it didn't live up to the expectations I had. It's certainly not a bad beer (I'm giving it a 3.5 overall), but after I finish this case, I won't be buying it again. It misses the mark for me as an IPA and there are much better IPAs out there. If they wanted it to be something different, they should have named it differently. It's all sort of confusing. Worth a try, certainly not bad, but not really my cup of tea, either.
