Pours the color of orange juice. The nose is citrusy, but not overly so. The taste is light on the citrus taste, but heaps on the hops in a good way. This is a great IPA that doesn't drink like the ABV.

Elevated strength and some of the sexiest hops on the planet give Burial Beer's imperial IPA an end-all, be-all to a tangy, floral and lighter profile fruit character that stems from Ella, Motueka and Vic Secret hops.

Light, honey and cracker-like, The Final Serenade pours with a hazy straw hue as the scent pulls from its light and arid froth with a potpourri of citrus, tropical and herbal aromas. Mild sweetness glosses the tongue with a short sweetness of meringue.

The beer's sweetness rapidly dissolves from the tongue and the middle palate is awash with hop flavor. Pineapple, lime and grapefruit strike quickly and then a firm taste of tangy passionfruit and lemon come riding along into a bitter, spicy and herbal finish of fennel, bright grassiness and verbena. Neary tea-like, a late palate of sassafras, cedar and other fragrant woods keep the flavor profile light and sharp.

Crisp, clean and moderately stemmy, the beer's militant carbonation and light malt textures give this stronger imperial IPA the drinkability and refreshment of standard strength American IPA- both the blessing and curse of the beer. Its a dry and tangy session that shows the new direction of hops in a whole new way.
