Outstanding. All I can say except carbonation on the first bottle was a bit low. Second was fine. A bit odd, but nothing against the beer.

Look: yellow maybe a bit more Amber than the average IPA.

Smell: lots of complex hops. Floral and resinous. Not much citrus if that's your thing.

Taste: unique and complex from the start. Not very sweet. There are surprising notes of chocolate and coffee. Finish is bitter as the tomahawk hops come through

Feel: medium bodied. Not crisp but not overwhelmingly sticky.

Overall: a very distinct imperial IPA. Strong hops and not afraid to let the bitterness fly. Fans of sweeter IPAs might not be a fan but overall a very enjoyable drinking experience.

Must have got a relatively fresh bottle as I didn't notice any lack of carbonation or muted flavours like some of the other reviewers. Great beer. Bready, malty, with a pleasant bitterness. Excellent mouthfeel. Bitterness balanced quite nicely with malt flavours.
