Decadent Imperial IPA. 10% alcohol content. Bottle shows a skeleton in a suit an hat dancing around with a bouquet of hop in his teeth... delightfully evil.

A- The beer pours deep hazy orange tainted fluid with tight bubbly head that leaves behind a nice quater inch head and froth. Lacing is top notch with gobs of excess froth clinging to the glass.

S- Smell is of sweet floral hops with a kinda danky twang of malty alcohol in the back end.

T-M- Well... not what I expected from the smell but starts with rotton citrus flavor consisting of grapefruit, star fruit and orange. May be some grassy and earthy tang in there. Decent malt back bone keeps this one alive, but all and all unbalanced. Mouthfeel is thin with a dose of acidic tingle with the carbonation going down.

D- Yeah its drinkable but not my first choice. Needs more balance between the hops and malt but hell, a decent showing of DIPA.
