4.7/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

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!**
