From the tap IBM a tulip glass

Look: cloudy orange, typical of IPA's, not much head, doesn't last long

Smell: not much that I could detect. A mild floral aroma

Taste: surprisingly well-balanced for an imperial IPA. Very tasty hops, but didn't overwhelm. The 10% abv will creep up on you, cause you won't taste it.

Feel: medium bodied, low carbonation, goes down easier than any imperial

A well-balanced IPA with a tasty hops profile. Another please!

Bomber poured into a tulip. No date marking.

Pale gold with little haze. Well clarified.

Nose is a fresh pine but not overly juicy. Little bit lighter and no notes of alcohol.

Taste is malt forward. Lots of hop, pine, resin, and grapefruit, but very well balanced by the sweetness of the malt. No alcohol warmth and a touch of hop bitterness in the finish.

Overall an excellent west-coast, malt forward Imperial IPA that's a refreshing reminder that clarity can be a good thing!

On tap in a tulip glass at Hourly Oyster House.

Gold and transparent. Minimal turbidity and haze.

Light floral and piney nose. Not a huge nose though.

Taste is exceptionally well balanced. Pacific Northwest hops stand out here. Citrus and piney but a lot of malt to balance out the hop character. Drinks way to smooth for a 9.5% DIPA.

Overall a great west coast DIPA. Doesn't destroy the palate like some of he over the top west coast brews and and stays clean with minimal alcohol warmth.

Had on tap at Meadhall. The beer had a bright orange appearance with a large foamy head and excellent lacing. Aromas included a sharp hop characteristic mixed with an assortment of herb-like smells. Alongside the creamy mouthfeel, the beer felt boozy and rich while having good hop flavors. Overall, I thought this beer was decadently good.

On tap at Wood n' Tap, Hartford. Way better than expected. Slightly hazy straw color. Citrus mixed with a yeasty goodness in the nose. Taste is similar, juicy but just a little danky. I'm an instant fan. Wil drink again soon.

Very good beer, had a sample at The Malted Barley in Westerly. Had that nice citrus grapefruit taste that I like. Very drinkable for 10.0%

Bomber poured into a tulip glass. No date that I could find.

L. Dark copper in color with, less than a 1 finger head and light lacing. Light haze to it as well.
S. Nice tropical fruits right off the bat. Touch of pine and hops floated in the mix.
T. Follows the nose but I almost feel as if this bottle has gone flat, very little carbonation and when I poured there was minimal head.
