Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this, consumed 8/19/17, review from notes

A: Burnt orange to copper - lightly hazy - pours with a medium to large foamy head - fades to a wispy cap, leaves some really nice lacing

S: Smells more like a Stone DIPA than a coffee IPA - juicy citrus with some nice orange and grapefruit juice and flesh - leafy hops and some resinous hops - not a ton of coffee, honestly, but some nice roasty character - Dayman had a more intriguing coffee aroma - oily - light sweetness

T: Juicy citrus with orange, grapefruit, and citrus zest - leafy and wet hop cones - substantial lack of coffee - some light coffee flavor is dominated by the dank citrus - lightly earthy - chewy pale malts and some sweetness - some booze

M: Medium body, smooth, medium carbonation, a touch oily

O: The Nightman has influenced this beverage

The notion of an "imperial Dayman" was so very exciting. Sadly, Champion of the Sun just drinks like a average (maybe below average) Stone DIPA with some splashes of coffee. Have I mentioned I miss Dayman?
