A really nice Imperial IPA. Not as over the top bitter as some other Imperials, but nice to be able to identify hop characteristics. Enjoyable

Bottiglia 33cl @ il gallo brillo.
Ambrata trasparente, non troppa schiuma biancastra sul giallino, fine e abbastanza persistente.
Ben luppolata, si afnno sentire parecchio i 9,2 gradi, comunque piacevole.

Poured a clear amber color with a long lasting large off-white head. Citrus and sweaty hop forward aroma. Sweaty hop flavor at the front and covers almost all of the malt. Sweetness dries out with a mild bitterness on the finish. Nice warmth with a medium body

Mane Liquor. Sipped from the bottle. Spruce/grassy nose with a caramel malt aroma. Plenty of citrus in the mix too, smells big. Taste follows suit, big caramel sweetness backed by a big 150 IBU bitterness. I noticed a touch of bubblegum sweetness on the back. Nice and bitter, solid bodied beer. Serious IPA.

Bottle at home, bought at ’Geers’.
Appearance: amber/blonde beer, big stable white head.
Nose: spices, fruits, apples, lemon.
Taste: alcohol, caramel, very heavy taste for an IPA, probably a typical DIPA taste? Bitter aftertaste.

Poured from a large bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a hazy, cloudy copper-orange color with a large foamy and creamy light tan head that had great retention, and excellent cling and lacing. Its aroma featured a strong blend of citrus and pine hops, along with some spice and yeast, and light lemon and straw. The taste had an excellent citrus and grainy hops bitterness, a slight floral sour component, and the slightest hint of sweet sugar. The body was lively and fizzy, with great carbonation, and had a watery, but dry mouthfeel, with good cling and subtle thickness. Very good beer!

Too much at first, then better. Lots of taste. Needs a beer glass to get there.
