Poured into a 12 snifter glass via draft
Dark yellow brown in color and smell is strong hop presence, which is off to a great start for an imperial IPA
Taste is all hops and plenty of malt, more than i was expecting..which made this faily sweet
For a 9.5% beer the ABV is pretty well hidden which is always dangerous..i liked this quite a bit and hope to try more from this brewery soon

Pours a cloudy amber with a dense long lasting head. Aroma is pleasant, but mild. You really have to stick your nose in to get much. Taste is very sweet and fruity, almost too much so, but the hops pull it back before it overwhelms. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy, but again, the bitterness is perfectly tuned to cut it off before it goes too far. Huge boozy tone, but perfectly concealed. I'm not sure it's all that detectable if you don't know it's there, which is pretty amazing considering the 10ish ABV. I don't know that I'd seek this one out, but hats off to all the things it does well, as it really does put on a clinic in those areas.

2018 12 oz can, poured chilled. Local shops just started carrying this. It's been a good beer week! Aggressive pour to a snifter makes for a huge bubbly head, with medium carbonation and a lingering lacing. Pink grapefruit hits the nose. Taste follows the nose on the front, and has a solid malt backbone that balances the 100 IBU well. The alcohol hides like a pro. After a little warming, the citrus adds some pine, and the malt stays firm without any mustiness. Mouthfeel is medium thick. Very tasty and enjoyable. Don't think it's a session beer, lest the 2x4 whallop your skull!

Can poured into a Mountain Rambler Brewing co pint glass

A: Pours golden amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a firm layer that hangs around and leaves some nice lacing.

S: Fruity, tropical, floral, some citrus, a little spicy pine, bready malt, and caramel/honey sweetness.

T: Fruity, tropical, passion fruit, peach, apricot, and mango, citrus, orange marmalade, zesty grapefruit, flloral notes, some slightly spicy pine, bready malt, and honey sweetness.

M: Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, holds its % very well.

O: DIPAs are hit and miss for me, but this one is definitely a hit. You know it's big, but everything works together so well.
