First an foremost i will info you of my bias towards imperial ipas i like to love them alot. with that being said its not the best and its not the worst , here we go. let me crack a fresh one for you.

T- Taste- It tastes like the steady relationship you wish you didn't have. this is good but its nothing super special. it is the epitome of its style. a deep rich hearty imperial ipa its quite lovely but its no super model. Its kinda sweet then the hops kick in, its very rich its like a hot rich girl with daddy issues. almost everything you wanted but its missing something.

M- Manifestation - Well starts with a sweet hop flavor mid range is crisp and refreshing end note is still sweet.
