Big thanks to Guy Forget from Truckee for hooking this one up!
Poured 1-pint bottle into snifter.
A: 2-finger, white soapy head. Light amber color with consistent carbonation. Lacing sticks around for a bit.
S: Some fruit, citrus, cotton candy, and pine.
T: Most--oxymoron alert!--sessionable double IPA ever. Just try it.
M: Chewy with some nice mild carbonation at the end.
O: My only gripe with Imperial IPAs is that they're too aggressive. This one, however, is a great example of a more...down to earth (?)...Imperial. This beer smells great and tastes better.
**Hard to find, easy to drink: Only negative is that it's not available in Pittsburgh!**
Serving type: bottle
