08/14/2015: On tap at blend. Yellow small white head. Aroma is hoppy, some light citrus. Taste is ash and Hops. Medium carbonation. Typical strong IPA, takes some getting into, but not bad.

pours slightly hazy with minimal head dissipating quickly. nose is floral with malty prescence as well as a little alcohol. maybe a little grapefruit. mouthfeel is medium. up front I get some grapefruit with possibly some floral characteristics working themselves into the mid palate. end palate sweetens as it finishes but bitternes is def present. this beer to me seems like . a ramped up harvest ale which is a good thing. ive always enjoyed this beer and nothing about it stands out the end product is better than the sum of its parts. good enjoyable beer. as with most iipas improves as ot warms

Sadly the most prominent aspect of this beer is the alcohol content. All of the hops and any hints of wheat are muted by its potency. Not my cup of tea when it comes to imperial IPAs.
