Cask offering @ Churchkey. Smooth and velvety, creamy head. Taste much stronger than aroma, but nice piney bitterness, finish fades fast, but extra points for texture.

12oz brown bottle, sample from the brewery.

Bright golden hue, amazing lacing ... bubble show up the glass. Nostrils are slightly accosted by Galaxy hops and clean alcohol. Good amount of bitterness, soft citrus rind, pine, tea, peppercorn, and grassiness from the Galaxy hops. Malt base is enough to hold up to this onslaught and the 10% abv certainly brings it on for the Imperial IPA style. A lot of fun sipping this one.

A: This poured a clear gold with lots of off white head.
S: It smelled like fresh peaches and pine, with some honey and grapefruit.
T: It tasted like grapefruit and resin, with some peaches and honey. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M: It was thick with some carbonation. Great big body.
D: This was a fantastic IPA, with delicious scent and taste. The body was solid, but the finish was a little hot, so it should be sipped. Best beer by Flying Dog ever.
