3.04/5 rDev -16.7%
Appearance: A frothed up, aspirin colored head with a tiny bit of lacing. Clear orange and gold color.
Nose: Pine, vanilla, some citrus, and heat.
Taste: Nice mouthfeel, with a tiny syrupy balance. carbonation is very nice. Finishes with alcoholic heat. Orange and pine.
Notes: If this is a gift, have a blast...if it's at the store, have a pass. In this price range, with this kind of packaging, I can have an amazing beer. This was ok.

I had this in a tulip glass. Fridge temp then let it warm.
Appearance: nice amber/ golden color. Not hazy, with nice white head. Looked rather appealing.
Smell: not much character in the aroma, slight hints of pine and malt. A little lack luster.
Taste: not as hoppy as I would have thought, more sweet malt flavors. Overall tasty but not as hoppy as I was hoping for, and a little too sweet.
Mouthfeel: smooth but a little cloying on the back end. More sweet than I want out of an imperial IPA.
Overall: a good beer but just that...good. Not overwhelming or great, just good. If you like your IPA's sweeter and less hoppy, then good.

Too often of late I find imperial IPAs that lack balance, either there's too much alcohol or the hops aren't in balance and end up being the only thing you taste. This offering balances things nicely and it's certainly a robust beer that paired well with pizza. I'm left to lament that a single bottle is all I was able to bring home from Colorado.

Was hesitant on the wax covered bottle. Am I really drinking an Imperial IPA? A-hazy orange with little retention, expected on the high alcohol volume S-sweet and malty, citrus with caramel after notes, alcohol is present T-malty entry with tangy citrus in between and bready finish M-light to medium sits heavy medium on tongue making alcohol presence known O-too malty for my liking of an imperial but since the sweetness and slight bitterness attempts to balance it out I would say fairly drinkable especially for such a high ABV
