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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
