In my opinion, this was a really solid American Double. I picked it up in Portland, OR -- it doesn't make it out to NC often. Smooth, hoppy, all while being an Imperial!

A: Pours a nice transparent orange color, a two finger frothy off white head at the top that leaves a great lacing around the glass as you drink.

S: Smells great, citrus and tropical fruit throughout, lots of pineapple, slight hints of booze

T: Great taste, follows the nose exactly, some bitterness from the hops, but a perfect amount, the malts are well balanced with everything else as well.

M: Medium to full bodied, perfect amount of carbonation

O: A fantastic beer, I thoroughly enjoyed this brew, well balanced IPA.
