Pours a half finger of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is lemon and flowers.
The taste is mild bitterness... a little lemon and other citrus.
The texture is medium.
It's easy drinking but not much flavor.

Poured out of a can, trying something different here, aggressive flavors coming at me, with hops screaming too. Not balanced through out, smells decimate quickly, foam and lacing ok. A decent beer with the amount of abv it has.

Poured from pounder can into a Parish snifter
Look - pours a hazy, orange-gold color with a 3/4" white head. Retention is good, lace is huge and sticky.
Smell - At first, you get a big citrusy orange aroma but as it warms, more and more danky pine and resin come forth, along with a heavy dose of caramel malt. Alcohol presence is definitely there, at 9.4% abv.
Taste - Pretty nice balance between the malty backbone and the citrus/pine combo. Booze is not as prevalent in the sip as in the nose.
Feel - Heavy-medium body, with a bit of heat that lingers on the tongue. Carbonation is a bit low and the sip is finishes nice and sticky.
Overall - This was a gift/extra in a box from my brother and I'm not sure where he acquired it. I definitely enjoyed this one. Big, balanced DIPA.

Look: Nice orange tangerine color, clear.

Smell: Hoppy and citrusy. Lots of strong smells.

Taste: Hop bomb but you get that tangerine, grapefruit flavor in the end. Sticks around.

Feel: Nice typical IPA feel.

Overall: Great beer would buy again.

Excellent Imperial IPA from southern Cali. Comes in 4 pack of cans, which is nice too.
