12oz can. Pours a murky, hazy dirty brown color with almost no head. Good amount of lacing. The aroma is piney and resinous with some bready caramel malts. The taste is piney hops with lots of caramel malts and some wheat bread. Slightly resinous. Floral, piney finish. Maybe even a hint of vanilla and licorice at the end. Light mouthfeel with a mild alcohol presence. Overall, an alright Imperial IPA but I probably wouldn't buy it again.
