Pours ruby red with a great white laced head that looks like you'd see in a beer commercial. It is a bit more dark than your standard Double IPA (or in this case Imperial Amber, if there is a difference).

The smell is very hoppy. Traditional non west IPA smell that doesn't have that piny smell. Very clean and strong.

The taste is just perfect. Kind of a sweet hoppy taste that is as smooth as you can get. The great thing about imperials is that is so easy on the taste buds, doesn't burn them out and minimal hoppy lingering. Absolutely perfect.

Overall, this is an outstanding beer. I'd put this up there with the best of the best in this category. As a side note, this perhaps is the best beer in the world to eat with a spicy buffalo wing. The sweetness really complements anything spicy. Terrific beer that is a must have.

A- Pours a hazy copper-amber hue with a one finger head foamy head. The head is a beautiful caramel color. Good lacing and decent retention.

S- Mostly citrus and pine fragrances from the hops. Slight malt sweetness undertones.

T- Good doses of cascade hops. Malt backbone balances nicely with the bitterness. Finishes clean with a few lingering hints of the hops bitterness.

M- Slightly thin, but very drinkable. Weight is adequate to support the flavor profile.

Overall, this is a terrifically balanced brew that could be easily sessioned.
