On tap at Twenty Tap

Pours clear red with a white head that fades into a wisp.

Smells like a good IPA with a little bit of extra spiciness coming from the rye. The citrusy hops are on full display here.

Same as the nose, big citrus hop flavor along with some biscuit and caramel malts to balance it out. Finishes semi-dry with a rye kick.

I had no idea this was an imperial beer until coming here to review it. It absolutely does not taste like it's 8.7%. Mouthfeel is on the light to medium side with enough carbonation to make it refreshing.

Overall a nice surprisingly robust beer and one of the better hoppy beers I've had lately.

Cold from the tap @ the Tap to a 12oz snifter a semi translucent deep copper with a full finger, foamy, tan head leaving a sheet of lace to the rim.

Aroma - spicy, pepper, muted citrus hops.

Spicy upon the first sip, hot, medium bodied, smooth, yet bitter to the entire palate, citrus behind the pepper as more sips go down.

Good beer, though I don't see 2 or 3 glasses happening.
