12 oz. bottle.

Color: clear, deep golden hue.

Head: thick, off-white, medium lacing.

Aroma: lightly fruity and a little toasty. Bitterness is evident.

Mouthfeel: heavy, but not too syrupy, light-medium effervescence.

Taste: slightly sour and strong bitter first notes, with a slight toasty maltiness, giving way to bitter hops and light fruit. Aftertaste lingers on the back of the palate with medium duration, relatively clean and lightly sour finish. Good balance of strong flavors, slight yeast presence throughout does not overpower the hop finish, and malts are clearly defined but not over-present.

Overall: For a Imperial IPA, especially in the Belgian-style, a well-balanced yet flavorful beer. Clean but big, this beer has lots of nuanced flavors that do not overpower one another. Yeastiness is kept in check, perhaps even on the light side, but overall a very good and enjoyable beer.

22oz. bomber: This one pours a clear, golden color. Maybe a tinge of orange in it. Small off white head that leaves a little lacing. Interesting aroma. Some banana, clove, pine, and a bit of yeastiness. The taste is good. Flavors are a bit more blended and harder to pick out distinct ones. Bitter, a touch bready, good malt body, faint fruits. I like this, and would definitely buy another!
