L: Amber, very slight haze. 1” fluffy foam head, slight orange tint, foam has fairly small bubbles. Thick ledges of lace cling to the glass.
S: fresh, spicy, floral, herbal, light fruit
T: Starts with light caramel and biscuit supporting fruity, citrusy yeast and hop flavors. The hops are big but are as much about flavor as bitterness.
F: Creamy, very soft in the mouth, medium body, medium carbonation.
O: A nice big beer that you can drink instead of a bourbon or a gin and tonic.

They sell this in 1 quart cans at the local grocery store. It's often on sale for 7 bucks, but usually around 9. All that, and it's a very decent beer. My only complaint is that I always spill the first few drops when trying to pour from a full can.

Pours amber with some cloudiness and an off white head. Good looking beer.

Smells- Citrus and hops.

Taste-Big hops bitterness with some citrus towards the back end

MF-Pretty heavy bodied with some nice carbonation.

Overall- A pretty good IPA. Great summer beer.

One of the best IPAs I have ever had. I would go back to this again and again.

Served in a pilsner with .25 inch head. Appearance is a amber with poor clarity (which i don't mind). Aroma was more malt with some dank hops in there. Taste is a woody Carmel malt immediately followed by pine hops with delightful orange and sweet lemon rinds. What's left is a lingering woody bitterness and pleasant alcohol warmth. Solid brew!

NIce balance, but a little too astringent. Still above average for Imperial IPAs.

Tastes like detergent. Hard to finish. Too much alcohol
