I had this on tap at Moylan’s Brewery. It poured a very nice orange color with a small off white head. Very pleasant aroma with lots of grapefruit and orange peel. Palate bruising hoppiness with a very dry finish. Overall it's a wonderful Imperial IPA.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a brilliant copper hue with a fluffy off-white head. Smell is citrus with hints of grassy lemon and grapefruit. Also expresses some extremely dank, cannabis character. Taste is identical to the aroma. Some have said alcohol was present, but I don't get it much at all. The hops and malt balance this beer beautifully, and alcohol is hardly detected. Mouthfeel is slick and resinous, but still very clean on the finish. This beer is highly drinkable even given it's ABV. One of the best examples of the style I have had in a long time! Seek this one out!

Pours an orangey, medium amber. It looks a tiny bit hazy, but I think it's just the color and density of the beer. Medium head, just a touch off white. Lots of fine bubbles with good retention. The aroma is milder than expected. Pretty standard grapefruit, pine and floral flavors. Some booze, but not too bad. Some caramel maltiness. Sweet bubblegum note knocking around. The taste is sweet and rich with hop flavor. Quite a bit of pine resin and grapefruit. Mild bitterness at first, builds to moderate towards the end and in the finish. Some booze. It's a >10% abv DIPA, so that's forgivable, but it's all a bit much. There's a lot of flavor, and it's kinda messy. The malt comes through but pretty much just as simple sweetness. Fairly astringent. Still, it's tasty. Fairly heavy mouthfeel. Long finish. Oily. Interesting beer. Tons of flavor. It just feels like they tried to make it big without much other thought.
