At almost 6months old, the Hops clearly faded in this.
I still review it because Camba gives a 1year best-by date on this,which is asinine.
Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Mostly clear amber-orange pour with a two finger off-white head with good retention and great lacing. Big resiny, hoppy, malty nose with hints of pine, grapefruit, caramel, tropical fruit, and brown sugar. The taste follows suit with bitter, resiny hops dominating along with hints of caramel, grapefruit, pine, mango, tangerines, and subtle grass. The mouthfeel is oily and chewy with fizzy carbonation and a great tangy, bittersweet bite on the finish. Overall, this is a really well balanced and highly drinkable Imperial IPA. The Germans are finally bringing it with some nice IPA's.
