look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours murky golden amber with a thick, foamy head. Lacing sticks. Two hop cones float it in. The floating, soggy hop cones detract from the appearance, in my opinion.

The smell is of pine and caramel. Robust.

The taste is piney, spicy, citric. Caramel backing balances it. Some alcohol shows in the potent finish.

On the thin side for an imperial, but it holds together well enough for a long, hoppy finish.

Overall, a good Imperial IPA.
