12 oz.

Pours a clear amber orange, an inch of off-white head that is very fluffy and retains well.

Smells of bready malts and floral and citrus hops. Hints of rose.

Tastes of maple, bready malts, citrus, and floral and piney hops. Nice hop bite in the finish.

Full body with stinging carbonation on the tongue.

Very good double IPA, very tasty and certainly deserves recognition. There are still a few in the style I'd take before this, but not many and I certainly wouldn't turn this one down. Hope to have it again.

Yang pours a hazy dark golden color with a big lacing head. There is a huge hoppy aroma. The taste is also big hops, very bitter, very bold, with some earthy notes. Big flavors, good body. Overall its very strong, alcohol comes through, good sipping beer.

Had on tap at the Pig & fiddle and from a one month old 12 oz. bottle.
A: Brilliant copper amber under a 1” sudsy white foam collar that leaves thin sheets of lace.
S: malt, earthy hops, some caramel and citrus.
T: Big and rich and hot, dry with light fruit at the start of the tongue getting hot and spicy and citrus bitter as it moves to the back.
F: Warming, Some astringency in the finish from the hops.
O: a big aggressive Imperial IPA.

Copper in color with a nice hoppy nose. Full bodied with the malt backbone well represented. However, the finish was definitely too boozy and astringent.
