Served in an 10 oz mini-imperial pint glass, the brew was a very hazy dark orange-red copper color with a fine white head. The aroma presented a well-developed and robust complex of floral hops. The combination of floral and resin hop notes was lively, bright, and mouthwatering. Also present were a variety of citrus notes...fantastic. The taste was superb as well. I was hit by a barrage of aromatic bitter hop notes (resembling the nose), held up by the perfect level of malt. The mouthfeel was smooth and full; just right for the style. This was an extremely drinkable and satisfying imperial IPA , with big flavors but at the same time being refeshing and crisp. Alcohol was concealed completely. Unfortunately,at the time of writing this review, I beleive it is only available at the brewery and Horse Brass in Portland(I had it at both, but this review comes from the Horse Brass serving). Not to be missed if you find it!

I can hardly find any information about this beer, but I found it on tap at the Horse Brass. Cheers!

Imperial Pint on cask, lovely copper body with a nice naturally creamy head. A wonderfully fresh and citrusy aroma that doesn't completely hide the abundant malt body. The taste starts with a crrisp hob bite followed by a nice, somewhat traditionally british malt profile, with some almost berry flavors. That sounds off putting, but its a subtle sensation that is quite nice. The beer finishes with a dryness that any IPA should leave. It really finishes itself off well, and is quite a good beer. I was somewhat surprised by its affects upon my equilibrium, so I suspect that maybe its got a higher Abv.
