Ok...to begin with I must admit I was attracted to the great label and the fact that it is a "double" or "imperial" IPA. Pours well with a half finger of head and nice lacing all the way.
Color is a dark amber. Clear with medium carbonation. Aroma is typical for an IPA..strong hops with citrus, hay and grass. Nice mouth feel and bitter hoppy taste with a malty back
feel. All in all an above average brew, if not outstanding. Enjoy!

High amount of Hops and very little Malt, means near perfection for the taste buds. Not much of a fruity taste or smell. The aroma is amazing and matches the taste. I've enjoyed this one chilled and warm! yes, the flavor does alter once the beer warms up but that was the IPA's original purpose in the first place, right. It's appearance is dark but not too dark.

Hoppy-sweet on the palate, Figueroa Mountain's big-boy IPA boasts a hearty malt body and a wrap of hoppy goodness to soak it all in.

It starts out honey-amber, slightly hazed and with a medium frothy cap to lead the charge. Though its crown soon colapses back into the glass, it manages to lace with a broken ring here and there.

And its honey appearances lean into aroma and taste as well. Its sweet caramelly upstart reigns in hop elements of citrus, tropical fruit, and tea-like herbs to add depth of flavor and aromas midway through the session. But a close of both sharp and citrusy bitterness fuses with more stemmy and broad bitterness making me think the beer is of both American and English origins.

Medium-full on the palate, the beer remains that way through much of its taste- not allowing much dryness or crispness to occur in its finish. Warm and semi-dry, it's a wonderful ale that balances a bit too much toward the malt for even an Imperiao IPA for me.
