Poured from three day old growler

Look: hazy, light orange, white head that fades fast, light lacing
Smell: smell is tropical, Nelson hops have a very unique smell that I get here, not sure if they are in here, but I get that unique smell/taste, orange, tangerine
Taste: lingering sweetness with a touch of alcohol, and lightly bitter for an IPA, Nelson hop taste, and orange
Feel: a little thin for an imperial IPA
Overall: a really good beer, it's an orange bomb

Pours a dull, hazy orange with a half inch, bright white head embedded with tiny ringlets. Nose is fairly subdued - notes of citrus fruit and rind. Taste expresses candied citrus and a light medicinal bitterness towards the back. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a light acidity and a mild carbonation. Overall, a decent brew but there are better examples of the style.
