16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 7/24/2018. Pours moderately hay/cloudy deep golden amber/slight orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, green pepper, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, green pepper, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, guava, blueberry, gooseberry, citrus peel/rind, green pepper, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, fairly sticky, and lightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Mildly increasing warmth of 8.75% after the finish. Overall this is an awesome NEDIPA! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to drink for the ABV with the mellowly bitter/resinous/drying finish, not aggressive. Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe, and Apollo hops. Awesome balanced mix of juicy, dank, and earthy hop complexity; great wheat/oat/malt balance, not overly sweet/heavy from lingering dryness. A really enjoyable offering, and well made style example. Loved the hop profile.

Tasted in a Rastal Teku from a one pint can on August 11, 2018. Juicy New England style IPA with a variety of fruit notes. Hopped with Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe and finally Apollo to create a slightly bitter but creamy finish.

16oz can. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange with a half inch of head. Good amount of lacing. The aroma is fleshy citrus and tropical fruits. Mango, guava, tangerine, pineapple, strawberry and grapefruit. The taste is sweet grapefruit, strawberry, tangerine and guava. Lightly toasted malts with some dank hop notes. Creamy, strawberry finish. Tastes slightly boozier than expected. Medium bodied with an oily mouthfeel. I’m very happy to see this one is being canned. Great Imperial IPA.
