he mountains of Summit and Nugget hops in this high gravity Imperial will thrill even the most experienced beer explorer. Savory evergreen and pineapple aromas mingle with flavors of bitter, resinous pine and grapefruit pith. A colossal rush of hoppy adventure!

Fruity, flowery, and malty, in that order. 4.10, across the board.

Look: It pours golden with a moderate slightly off white head. It does leave a quite a bit of lacing behind.

Smell: The initial aroma is stone fruit with a caramel background to it. The stone fruit is most favorable towards peach. Present are also citrus and a bit of floral.

Taste: The flavor has a strong hop bitterness highlighted by peach and floral elements. There is also a caramel backbone to it as well.

Feel: It has a moderate feel to it with moderately high hop bitterness that lingers well into the finish.

Overall, this is a quality imperial IPA that is not over done with the bitterness, but does provide a good bitter bite to it.

Half a bomber into a goblet:

L: A faintly brown burnt orange body that is almost transparent, but just a little cloudy. Very light orange-colored cream head with a frothy consistency that leaves minimal lacing despite feeling like a very dense liquid. Definitely not super carbonated.

S: Strong odor of (fairly oxidized) pineapple with orange and pear feeding into caramel and malty toasted bread. Nice.

T: That pineapple is dominant and comes in waves. Some sort of funky bread flavor also mingles with it throughout. Besides pineapple I get hints of mango, peach, cranberry, and a bit of pine, finishing in something like banana bread (funky and malty) with a strongly peppery undertone. I'm actually liking this less as I drink more of it. It's a particular sort of bitterness (like cranberries) that I don't like. Keeps building.

F: Excellent consistency. The redeeming factor that keeps this beer drinkable. A little syrupy if anything.

O: Not bad, but no reason to choose it over West Coast IPA. Too malt-heavy in my opinion.
