A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of pineapple are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, except that the tropical flavors of pineapple stand out with a little more prominence and are complemented by additional notes of passionfruit. There is a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No crispness is perceptible.
O: This Imperial IPA is remarkably easy to drink compared to other beers in the style, especially considering its lighter body nature.

Double dry hopped collab between KCBC and Northern Monk - can lists Pilsener and Vienna malts, flaked wheat, and Simcoe, Vic Secret, and NY X14 (???) hops... no canning date...

Medium-gold and close to opaque, thick finger or two of head... Classic combination of fruits and pines, with a sharp edged bitterness to clamp down on any sugary inclinations... Taut and lean, but with a soft, juicy underside... Presents notes of orange pith, green mango, floral pine airs, shellac, and melon... Medium-body-weight, moderate carbonation... Very much in line with a lot of my preferences - reminds me of some Trillium beers I've had... Recommended...
