12oz bottle. Poured out a clear, golden yellow color with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled of citrus, pine and toasted caramel. Sweet caramel and citrus. Nice piney bitterness.

Looks like Amber honey
Smells like pine and citrus. The alcohol burns the nose a little.
Tastes sweet and quenching. Alcohol taste comes in as an afterthought.
Overall this reminds me of my grandparents attic.

Tasted from a 12 oz bottle in a globe glass.

L - Medium golden color with just a touch of haze. Head is off-white, rocky and persistent as a thin layer and thick lacing.

S - Aromas of hops with low citrus and strong tropical fruit. Bready malt and cracked grain overlay the hops.

T - Tropical fruit hops dominate, with a good amount of bready malt flavors to provide balance. A low butterscotch flavor midpalate initally, but fades as the beer breathes. Clean, dry, balanced finish.

F - Medium to light body. Fluffy, mouth-filling carbonation. Solid alcohol presence but not overly hot. Strong hops bitterness.

O - I find this a balanced, satisfying Imperial IPA with an emphasis on tropical fruit-like hops.
