4.01/5  rDev -2.9%

A: The beer is quite hazy pale yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly settled down, leaving just a few wisps of bubbles on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of gooseberries are present in the nose along with notes of limes and oranges along with hints of herbal hops.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of gooseberries and lime citrus. Only a slight amount of bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little crisp and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The use of both oats and wheat in this Imperial IPA really lightened up the body and made it easy to drink and lighter in body compared to what you would normally expect.

15.99 for a 4 pack of pints. Canned 2 mo. prior to open date. Poured into a fluted pint glass.

A: Pale, hazy, golden blonde color. Considerable lacing that stayed for a good amount of time.

S: Strong citrus notes, orange, grapefruit primarily. Herbal and slight grassyness, noticable wheat malts. A bit boozy.

T: Noticeable wheat and honey malts. Reminiscent of pale ales, the citrus makes it unique. Slightly sweet, the bitterness comes in the middle at a mild power. Aftertaste is of citrus and the wheat + honey malt. The 8% alcohol is masked quite well but still leaves a sweet kick on the tail end.

M: Mild/low carbonation. As stated above, the 8% abv is masked quite well. Reminds me of a cream ale almost. Moderate/heavy mouthfeel at a reasonable temperature; Smoothe.

O: This beer is quite good. The different malts combined with the abv make for an enjoyable beer, masking the alcohol very well. Just be careful, that ABV sneaks up on ya. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

16oz can. Pours a slightly hazy brownish yellow with half an inch of head. Some lacing. Sweet aroma of citrus, pineapple, cream, peaches and melon. The taste is citrus, melon and pineapple with some ice cream. Citrus peel and some floral hops at the end. Medium body with low carbonation. Moderate alcohol presence. Pretty solid Imperial IPA.
