Poured into a tulip. Color is a slightly hazy copper color. Nice white heading with a soapy look to it. Nice bubbly action going on here.

Very nice oak aroma does come through at first whiff but a more pineapple,and slight papaya fruitiness take over the ride. Just all around sweet and sugary.

Taste was about the same as the nose. Sweet and sugary with a touch of crisp cracker like malt backbone. Alot of pineapple and fruity notes with a slight twinge of citrus. Oak does let you know it is there. Nice balance here.

Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Not as bubbly as I'd like in the mouth, a little flat.

I remembered I had this on-tap and how flat it was. This is much better coming from the can.

I have a cold Hop Crisis by my side as I write this. Poured from the can into a bulged pint glass.

A: Pours a nice clear gold with minimal chill haze. The head is a nice finger and a half. It laces decently, leaving behind some cobweb like designs on the glass.

S: Smells like my homebrew DIPA. Definitely smells of West Coast dry hops. Cascade. Centennial. Nice grapefruit, papaya, and orange. A decent malt backing as well.

T: Solid malt backing meets West Coast hops. Juicy citrus, grapefruit, papaya fruit basket. For such a big beer, there is not much heat to go along with it, which is nice.

Overall, a solid DIPA. Would recommend and drink again.

Appearance: It has a pale golden color topped with a crop of tight white head that likes to stick around. The Belgian lacing clings nicely to the side of the glass all the way to the end.
Smell: All hops here as the nostrils get smacked with the aroma of grassy and pine notes.
Taste: The beer is warming to the proper temp and I like the amount of hops that I taste but with the name of Imperial IPA is would like perhaps just a little more flavor.
Mouthfeel: I love the feel of this beer it is one that the resin sticks on the tongue and keeps reminding you of the sip you just took.
