On tap at the brewery. Pours hazy amber with fluffy white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and caramel malt. Body is full and smooth. Citrusy hops, caramel malt, alcohol and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and dry from alcohol. I did not enjoy the brew.

Comes in a dark orange position on the color spectrum. Almost leaning auburn. Head of 1/3". Where is the hop aroma?

Taste is another large imperial ipa without a lot of hop flavor, but immense bitterness and crystal malt caramel feels. This one also has toffee feels too. Hides the alcohol ok but its too one dimensional for my tastes and wallet. All them C and noble hop feels.

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.
