A - Pours a bright citrus/golden in color with an eggshell head. The body is hazy and not clear for my bottle.

S - Lovely citrus hops peaking through. Can seem slightly candied but there's an array of pineapple, apricot, mango, etc. Very juicy.

T - Bitter hops to start off with and follow with a caramel malts. The citrus is there but somewhat candied because of the sweeter malts. Ends with a bitter finish.

M - Smooth, juicy, sticky... Good amount of carbonation to go with the medium bodied beer.

O - Really a well done Imperial IPA that hits all the right notes.
