look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

6 pack picked up for $8, definatly a great price overall for what you get.

A hard pour into an oversized snifter produced 3 inches of frothy white head. Hazey golden color on the beer, fitting the unfiltered labeling of the bottle.
Head retention is great, a large collar of froth is left behind, as well as a bubble island and sticky thick lace.

Aroma is a peppery pineapple. It smells a bit odd really. Not as hoppy as I would expect. Quite a bit of mint in there, with a fresh leafy hop aroma.
Seems to be a whole cone hop rather then a pellet hopper. Becoming a bit more floral as it warmed with mild sweet breads coming forward.
No heat at all.
Heats up a little in taste, but seems masked by a peppery pineapple once again, as well as more minty fresh whole cone flavors.
Much more bitter in taste, lingering pine, overshadowed by mint leaf.
Mouthfeel is slick with modest carbonation.

Overall I found this unbalanced and a bit warm, especially from the peppery flavors and the cloying leafy mint flavors. A good buy for the price and abv. But needs some tweaking to better follow the style.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Big off white head slowly recedes above a clear well carbonated straw golden colored beer.

Pretty noticeable citrus hops aroma with a bit off fresh pine included.

Citrus, pine and some grassy notes in the taste of this hops tasting imperial.

Pretty dry aftertaste that almost puckers a person. There is a bit of the citrus tastes remaining with this medium bodied IPA.

Decent tasting but I would actually like a bit more from a imperial.
