Visited a buddy near Tracy and found this there. Funny...can't get it in the East Bay. Go figure.

Pours a relatively clear amber ale and a bright white foamy head. I mean white. Nicely done there. Just a very nice looking brew.

Was getting heavy pineapple on the aroma right after popping the cap. As it sits in the glass, I'm getting big hoppiness, citrus, malt, dank, pine and rubber. Much to smell here.

The taste is very malt/dank forward. Getting the sticky citrus flavor with an grapefruit rind swallow and aftertaste. Tis good. I used to suck on grapefruit rind and this brings me back. I like. Extremely juicy is the thing I think after every sip.

This is a big beer so proceed with caution. It's very drinkable, but catches up to the party fast. Big and bold and hearty. Worth seeking out. Happy to have one more and will be on the lookout for another...and another...and

The color is a 24k gold color.This beer has a citrus orangey, bite..smells of pine and citrus, slightly fruity smell..the taste is piney, citrusy hops, with a light-medium body that I like. Lots of carbonation, for high abv, which makes for a more pop and action to the mouth. Vibrant, fruity, bitter, resin apparent. Not too much diacetyle. Much bigger taste than smell.

"Therapist - no appointment necessary" reads the 22 oz bottle. Finally, a beer label that's actually funny, although certainly not pretty. Purchased at Molly Stone in Palo Alto. Anyway, I don't see how an Imperial IPA could be any better than this. All the reviews so far are fairly spot-on, but I liked it more.

A: perfectly transparent amber color. White head that lasts a while.

S: floral and very hoppy. A little citrus in there too.

T: citrusy and very hoppy. Very good malt taste too.

M: great smooth finish.

O: reminds me of Pliny the elder. A little hoppier and and a little less smooth, but I feel this is a great dipa.
