Pours a clear tangerine color with a small white head. aroma is really bready and sugary. Flavor is bitter as fuuu, really syrupy and doesn’t hide the booze at all. I could go without drinking this again.

bottle. One of the best Imperial IPA’s I’ve had. Intense hops, well masked alcohol and big citrus - all incredibly balanced. Bummed I only had one. This is a phenomenal beer!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours amber. Really sharp bite and skunky and smoky aroma. Not sure I’d get this one again - just too overpowering.
