Appearance: Orange and strawberry in color. A sticky white head with nice lacing. Nice retention, too.

Nose: Not much is strong or up front. Mostly pine and citrus. A tiny bit of malt.

Taste: Sweet and bitter. Hoppy and syrupy.

Notes: Beer is now expensive, and your options are seemingly limitless. If you are going to brew an imperial IPA, it needs to be unique or incredible. This would have been a really nice IPA, but they tried to sell me on the "imperial" aspect and so I was let down.

This is a good DIPA, but it's not my kind of flavor profile. I just don't like big malty flavors in my IPA's. The malt flavor, mainly the caramel profile takes over.. I don't get much tropical fruit, or fruit at all. There is a big floral profile, and a big sweetness from the malt. I wanted more hops and tropical fruit.
