Very floral, fruity DIPA. Not as thick or heavy as some in the style. Little sweet. Very good beer. Would gladly get it again.

This brew is copper colored liquid with a medium white head. The smell is at once both hoppy and malty, with a booze background. The flavor is intense, with a nice balance. Warming and sweet malt are prominent. Full In body. Excellent.

I've heard a lot of opinions about this beer. Some people just LOVE it and some don't so I was excited to give it a try!

It's a amber colored beer (a little hazy) with a one finger high head that dissapears fast down to a <1 mm thin head. A lot of lacing stays on the glass.

Nose: Oups! This is a huge nose of orange marmelade, caramel malt, biscuit, fudge, butter, candy and whipped cream.
Taste: It's big but not as the nose promise... Orange, citrus, marmelade, bread, pine, resin and honey.
Body: Solid medium to full body. A sweet, creamy, taste. Not all that texture that I want from a DIPA. Dry. A medium bitterness.
ABV: 9.4% - Hard to say because of the sweetness. Great but not overwhelming.

Well... My verdict is: Great Imperial IPA but a little average...

This beer boasts 10% ABV and 80 IBUs, but it really tastes more like 7% ABV and 50 IBUs. It is a good beer, but not stellar.

Look-Pours a pleasant cloudy light golden color that has some copper hues in a white light.

Smell-It has strong aromas of citrus hops and sweet malts just like any other popular IPA.

Taste-It tastes just like it smells with sweetness and monotonic hoppy flavor. It is good, but it just isn’t unique.

Mouthfeel-It has a mild smoothness and weak carbonation. Alcohol isn’t not nearly as biting as you would expect from a 10% brew.

Overall-I enjoyed the beer, but it definitely wasn’t unique. It was the average run-of-the-mill IPA that is a dime a dozen. The flavor was flat and one dimensional, but it wasn’t bad.
