Many thanks to travlr for this can! Nice intense floral and not too sticky Imperial IPA. Nice darker floralness, pine, resin combined with hints of sweetish malt. Nice and round, full-bodied with nice hop-character. Good example of this style!

Hazy, yellow-orange colour with medium head and nice lacing. Very intensive and long lasting aroma of citrus and exotic fruits (lots of grapefruit, mango, peaches), some floral and piney notes. Awesome in aroma! Taste is medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter with long balanced finish. Full body. Aboslutely fantastic imperial IPA, perfectly balanced and highly drinkable.

Into a tulip showing a well filtered amber with no head.
The nose shows a lot of intense dry pine and cannabis.
The palate shows a lot of the same flavors with a very sharp and cutting pine. Light bodied, well carbonated, and a moderate bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Thanks, Gene! "Travlr")
A- Juicy, citrus, caramel, bitter, malty.
A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, tan head.
T- Citrus, bready, caramel, malty, bitter, juicy, balanced, chewy.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish.
O- Not knowing a lot about this beer going into it I imagined a very bitter and aggressive IPA. I was wrong in the best way possible. Very balanced with a nice citrus, bitter, malty combination. Didn’t like the yeast floating around in there but that can be overlooked.

More backlog. Can. Pours out a nice copper color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of lots of juicy citrus, bitter caramel hard candy, some pine and sweet alcohol. Taste is like a hop infused caramel candy, nice balance with some pine, citrus and mild tell of the alcohol. Solid, well balanced, but leaning a little too far to the malty side to be world class in my book.
