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.

Enjoyed in a sunlit patio, on a hot day. Sipping in the shade, leaning into a fragrant Morning Glory hedge.

At first a wee bit watery, yes, but tasty as hell. Typical bread-grapefruit-pine. Strong booze but hidden well enough. Citrus leaning towards Lemon, with notes of mellon.

Grand!
