Clear deep amber color. Strong hoppy aroma. Bold malt with strong caramel notes. Malts balance the intense hop bitterness well. Great mouth feel with long lasting hop and caramel finish. Overall a very nice imperial IPA to be slowly savored. I recommend serving around 55 deg F.

Got this in Bar Harbor, Maine at the grocery for ~$7 22 oz bomber. Poured into glass. Pours a clear, dark amber color with a tall light tan head that dissipates slowly leaving very little lace. Aroma is dark, dried fruit, blueberries, bread and lots of malt. Taste contains berries, caramel, slight citrus and a huge malt backbone balanced by a fair amount of bitterness. Mouth is good. Overall, a big double IPA with a huge malt base and a good amount of bitterness. Not what I was looking for but it was pretty good.
