Pours a two finger white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Hazy amber color. Good carbonation and light-medium bodied. Sweet pine hop nose and flavor is caramel first then light pine hops. Higher ABV is hidden. Decent DIPA. $3.29 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, Ma.

Plenty fine DIPA. Looks to be fresh. Definitely a DIPA. All the flavors you'd expect and bold. Little sweet for my liking but overall delightful. Obviously a lot of competition in this style, this is perhaps upper third of the most aggressive imperials but I don't find myself craving more than one before moving on to something else.

Enjoyed from the 22 oz bomber in a pint glass. This fine imperial pale ale pours a lightly hazy glowing amber with tinges of red and a fantastic head of off white foam that settles to a thick ring, thick pool, and excellent sudsy lacing. Nose of honey dipped citrus fruits of pineapple, mango, oranges, lemon zest, and sweet candy malts. Flavors exceed the nose with pineapple up front, mango and orange notes to the middle, and lemon candy with a piney hop aftertaste coming through on the rear providing balance against the malt backbone. An excellent mouth feel, medium carbonation and a dry bitter finish, As good as it gets! One of the best DIPA's on the market.

Cheers
