Pours a pale murky yellow with just a hint of dirt mixed in , smaller dense head falls slow and laces well.

Aroma is mice grapefruit, dank tropical, tangerine riding on a nice malty base.

Taste is nice and lightly dank got some resin going on with the fruity notes which I do appreciate. Defiantly has that lingering citrus rind notes sticking to the tongue. Might be a little hot but the alcohol notes add a touch of spiciness for me and blend well.

Mouthfeel is big medium nice fuller bodied IPA, smooth carbonation without being fizzy.

Overall a good big IPA might taste more 10 then 8.5 but its enjoyable.

On-draught @ Other Half. $7 per 12oz pour.

Imperial IPA hopped with Amarillo and Galaxy.

Drinks pretty boozy, with a nice hop profile that favours Galaxy over Amarillo (to it's detriment). Pale malt and sweet caramalt almost balance out the hop bitterness, but the alcohol isn't contained well at all.

Difficult to drink given its high alcohol presence, but I do like the hop profile. Still, not a beer I'd get again over better priced, more widely available, and superior brews like Lagunitas Sucks.

Low B- (3.30) / WORTHY
