Dark golden to copper color. Generous piney and caramel aroma. Taste is amazing with solid malt profile that display strong notes of caramel and slight notes of honey and bitter cocoa on the palate. This balances quite well the strong hops profile (that is still very present) that display piney, spruce and herbal notes. Kind of an earthiness too here. The ABV is well hidden here. Although this beer is made to be mixed with a stout, it’s quite an outstanding IPA per se and deserve to be enjoyed on its own.

Nice beer, close to a barleywine because its color and its malty, alcohol character. Nevertheless, the balance is sweetier than expected for a great Imperial IPA. Not a bad beer at all, but I expected more.

Pours a hazy coppery amber, with a foamy off white head. Aroma is floral, resin, caramel, malt, and a touch of alcohol. Taste is earthy, floral, faint citrus notes with a strong malt presence. Finishes slightly astringent, with lingering citrus. Light body, soft carbonation, slightly oily texture. I’m impressed.
