4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz into a tulip. Pours a solid oak aged orange. Head is ample, about an inch at first, then mellows to plentiful lacing all over, full and gorgeous. Aroma of fresh hops, wheat, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon. Taste is glorious hops, fresh and juicy with ample orange, some pineapple, herbal citrus glow, funky banana, soft caramel malts, and a piney lacing. Wonderful drinker, smooth throughout, flowing, and fresh. Very mellow mouth feel for an imp. Tastes like a small upgrade from an IPA, but the punch is packed in the afterglow. Wonderful

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - hazy glowing orange - fairly thick, soapy lace - dank aroma, musky citrus, mango, orange zest - soft texture, fairly full in the mouth - flavor is a fair balance of sweet orange flesh, moderate bitterness, juicy American hops character - a little sweet, but mostly a fairly classic version of imperial IPA.

An amazing IPA with an incredible floral nose full of ROSE, which I found uncommon and very pleasant. Colour very beautiful, great taste with a perfectly balanced bitterness. Very, very, good!

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2015 Reviewed a while after consuming so vague memory tells me it was fair at best. I recall a charcoal taste and not much else.
