A: Very nice, slightly cloudy deep amber color. Full head that dissipates quickly. Tiny bubbles.
S: Citrus tones with a nut backdrop. Very full and rich.
T: Soft for a double IPA. Front taste is slightly grassy, followed by sweet tones of passion fruit, caramel, and grapefruit. Long finish.
M: Very smooth and full.
O: Very good. A little more syrupy than I prefer.

From tap into Growler poured in tulip shaped glass

Appearance: Golden hue yellow, slightly hazy, amber with a thin white head that dissipated very quickly.

Smell: Strong tropical fruit presence with a nice hoppy blend. Plums, grape fruit flavors, peach, mango, and earthy simcoe hops presence.

Taste: bittery on the front end from the explosive hop presence, and a nice sweetness on the back end from the peaches, mango, and tropical fruits. Very earthy, and biter sweet. I can't taste the alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body and moderate carbonation with a dry finish.

Overall: This is a great Imperial Double IPA. It is one of my favorite DIPA. It is very well balanced. I like it better than Ruination.
