Pours clear golden-yellow with a finger of off-white cap that sets at medium pace.
Nose is lychee, citrusy and spicy hops, banana esters reminiscent of Hefeweizen (a brief look at the back-label confirms the assumption that wheat-malt has been used in this one) and there's only subdued malt aroma.
Flavor is lemony with very restrained pale malt character. There's a pleasant lasting retronasal oflaction provided by hops. No harshness nor oaky flavors as it should be and absolutely no signs of being 7%.
Light with creamy texture (wheat) and substantial carbonation.
Doesn't seem very much like an Imperial one but flawlessly crafted nonetheless. (A presumably fresh bottle without BB indication, into tulip.)

2.7/5 rDev -22%
Shared it, and got thing I did because it's just strong. It pours with a clear and golden color and a decent and not really thick white head. The aroma is extremelly pleasant. Sweet and fruity thanks to the citra hops (on of the best aromas out there). The taste is completely different, especially after such a smell. It's bitter, hoppy, bitter and hoppy. A very strong taste with a bit too much bitterness for me. The aftertaste is also very bitter and I can still feel it.
A good beer, but not really for me.

Dark straw with a fading snowy head that leaves the odd trailer.
Big juicy citrus nose with some MO doughiness underneath.
Biscuit with bossy pink grapefruit, lychee, goosberry and light resin hops jumping right in.
Lime curd ending and minty linger.
Light, crisp, slight chew, no burn, a bit of oil.
Nugget, Centennial, Cascade and Citra. BBD 25.Jul.2014, so coming up near the end of 3 months freshness.
It's certainly got the hopping right - there are all sorts of angles to this combo, with Centennial and Citra representing the most - making it very refreshing, especially with no heat. But i's pale and thin for the strength (by Brit standards, anyway) and the bitterness is a bit powdery which is not quite a flaw, but not on point either. And it's in no way - IBUs, aroma, ABV - a DIPA.
Solid, above average American IPA but given the brewery, I expected more somehow.
