Flight draft.

Honey colored, 80% opaque, huge webby head even in the sampler.

Aroma is dank, herbal, with caramel and crystal malts.

Taste is malty upfront, with a citrus-like middle, yielding to onions and very faint pine on the finish.

Feel is sticky, resiny, has a wetness towards the end, and finishes with a parch.

Overall, this was a pretty decent IIPA. Nothing outstanding, but I'd try it again.

Blue Blood beers just arrived in Missouri.

A - Poured out a clear, copper color with a one-finger, khaki-colored head of bubbly foam. It left sticky patches of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of pine and citrus fruit. There was a toasted malt presence, too.

T - Big piney bitterness with a citrusy kick. Lots of maltiness in this Imperial IPA.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth.

O - This is a good beer. I like having more options in cans.
