L - dark orange, hazy, two-finger head sticks around, cool label art too

S - malty like an English IPA, some nectarine and pine hops

T - sure enough, lots of malts, fruity at first (nectarine, maybe pineapple if you really look for it), bitter musty finish, satisfying but lacking hop complexity

F - round, creamy, well carbonated, slight heat from the ABV

O - It's like they increased everything on the Money recipe equally instead of mostly just increasing late-addition hops, resulting in an all around big beer. Reminds me of War Elephant.

Served from the 16.9 ounce bottle into a 4 ounce snifter at 38F. No visible bottle date.

Light copper, orange, slightly translucent.

Nectarine, mango and peach on the nose. Some slight bready malt smells as well.

Up front nectarine and pineapple, ends with some peach and bready malts. Very clean fermentation and bottling taste. No off flavors. Hides the alcohol really well for the ABV.

Mouthfeel is solid. Balanced, decent head retention. Somewhat of dry finish. Not a sugary syrup bomb like a lot of mass produced imperial products in it's market segment.

I think it could use more of a dry hop to make the flavors punch a little harder, but overall a well put together product. Well balanced, and better than a lot of DIPA's in it's segment.
