The smell is what I like most about this imperial ipa. Nice and hoppy and floral, which I love. Appearance is golden honey. Taste is full-bodied and slightly piney. Mouth is smooth with medium carbonation. Finishes bitter and dry, yet somehow sweet. A complex beer worth checking out for yourself.

Appearance: It has a nice deep hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of grapefruit, floral hops, some pine, honey and sweet biscuity/caramelly malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some citrus/grapefruit, herbal notes, a piney bitterness and some sweet toasty/caramelly malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas. Very nice for a single hopped DIPA.

A: Pours an off white head which tipped off its malty taste.
S: Spicy banana and coconut biscuit
T: The above with overall spicy and savory flavors balanced by sweet malts
M: Spritzy and full, a little heavier than you'd expect on an IPA
O: Unique and intense taste, finishing with a refreshing hoppy bite. I will certainly reach for it again.

It pairs deliciously with spicy pepperoni pizza.
