look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Distinct nose of spice and unripe mango. Sweet malty component to the taste that clashes with some of the more offbeat hop notes. Thick mouthfeel with decent carbonation. Caught some alcohol on the finish, which is otherwise nicely done. Not a bad DIPA attempt, but not distinguished enough to try again.

Pretty good imperial IPA. Haven't had a ton of unfiltered ipa's, but the sediment gave an interesting feel. Poured into a snifter, one finger white head, nice lacing. Would definitely buy again.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a finger of creamy off white head. The smell is sweet with some hops and a slight spice note. The taste is sweet off the bat with a nice hop bitterness. Mild citrus peel bitterness. There is a spice note that reminds me of rye. The finish is sweet from grain and rather hoppy.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 22oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a medium off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, caramelized malts and fruity citrus.

T: The taste starts out with a strong sweetness from flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a strong but not over-powering piney hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty and provides a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, this is a very solid 2IPA to drink for a while.
