The appearance of this beer was magnificent. A dark golden color with a thin pure white head to it. For an imperial IPA this beer did not have the strong hop flavor I was expecting. However there was a very nice light malty taste left behind. Also take into consideration that i found this at a liquor store that still has some Sam Adams summer ale. There known for their liquor, and the craft beer section doesn't get any attention, so I don't know how old the beer is. (a huge disadvantage to buying IPA's with no date on the bottle) I would definitely recommend this to anyone that likes to unwind with a nice IPA after work.

Bottled on 277th day of 2011.

A: Bronze hue, huge tan head. Recedes into a thin cap of foam after a minute or so.

S: Pine, peaches, lavender. Almost like potpourri.

T: Pine, floral hops dominate. Lite citrus and herbal hops linger on the aftertaste. Not getting much malt flavor, a real hop bomb.

M: Slightly medicinal with some honey cough drop action going on.

O: Not the best Avery has done, but worth at least a try.
