12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy copper, with a thick uniform off-white head that sticks around. Nose is citrus, tropical fruit, and caramel. Similar taste. The caramel malt flavor has top billing, but the beer has enough fruitiness and hop bitterness to balance everything out nicely. Good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours slightly cloudy orange with lots of visual carbonation. Long lasting off white head. Aroma of pineapple with some citrus and sweet malt. Medium body with the perfect amount of hop bitterness without over doing it. The alcohol is well hidden by the hops and sweet malt. Tastes like a final gravity of 1.020-1.025. Lots of malt used in this brew. The hop bitterness is in line with an English IPA. Lingering hop finish. One of the best Imperial IPA around.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Bottle and tap. 8.6%? I was not prepared for this. Aroma of mango and passion fruit. First hop forward IPA I’ve had so far in dallas. Juicy mango, cherry, orange flavor. Delicious.

On draft at small craft pub in Ft Worth - can’t recall the name, but, hey, it was late! Poured a rich foggy dark yellow...decent head. Nose? Can you say grapefruit? Grapefruit lingered thru the whole drink....do love Mosaic hops! Booze was there but not overpowering. Excellent beer...wish they had it in Chicago.

Pours a reddish copper, nice head and lacing. Slightly sweet malt, then hops show up. Bigger than I thought, it drinks lighter than 8.6%
