3.78/5  rDev -8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Light yellow body, semi-hazy; huge head, dense and foamy, very sculpted; sticky, spidery patches of foam adhere to the glass. Malty nose with a sense of old, ripe citrus rind; pseudo-dankness. Malty flavor; old sugar and spice; kind of earthy herbal quality; slight hop bitterness; a little bit of alcohol presence. Heavy body; spicy stickiness; semi-dry overall.

Um, perhaps a bit old for this style of beer. There is a lack of 'freshness' in the taste, smell, and even the mouthfeel. It's not terrible, yet seems like a beer starting on it's last legs. Granted, it's an imperial styling, and it exhibits some of those traits, but they do seem tired. Rated with age factored in...

16oz can served in a pint glass. Canned on 10/04/18. Gift from @mr-jj.

Pours moderately hazy with a big head that fades moderately in fairly short order. Lots of thick lacing left behind, and plenty of carbonation. Smell is pine and honey.

Taste is honeysuckle and then pine. Maybe lacking a little bit of bitterness to counteract the sweetness. But tasty nonetheless.

Mouthfeel is velvet. Overall, very nice beer.

375ml bottle from Tavour. Hazy, pale golden pour, small fizzy head. Aroma is stone fruit, fresh and full. Taste brings some tartness, gentle, light sweetness. This is very sublime.

Smell is tropical fruit, malt, and a sharp alcohol bite.
Taste is pineapple, melon, orange citrus with some nice pine flavor. A little boozy towards the finish but not overpowering.
Very good DIPA, would probably be better if I got to drink it when it was more fresh in the can.

Excellent beer for its taste and mouthfeel. Also, for how high of a ABV beer it is, it's an easy one to drink as well. Overall another great beer from ABC.

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy pale yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: Light to moderate aromas of mango, orange and stone fruit are present in the smell.
T: The taste follows the smell but has stronger flavors of tropical fruit and citrus hops. A light to moderate amount of bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bided and a little smooth and juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really enjoyed the mouthfeel of this IPA, which also did a very good job at hiding any traces of alcohol from the taste, making it quite drinkable.

Pours deep and golden with no way to see through. Head is white leaving a nice lacing. Nose is OMG, like orange juice. Taste is very reminiscent of Ghost in the Machine, very much like it. Not much bitterness, that is the only criticism I can give.

Pours a very cloudy, opaque golden color with a finger width foamy head. Head retention is excellent as is lacing. I get a citrus aroma with stonefruit. There is a mild peppery component. Juicy citrus taste with a mild peppery and stonefruit bitterness. Got this one from Tavour, and I think it was a little on the old side when I got it. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
