The first thing I noticed is that you hardly notice the 9+% alcohol. There pours a decent thing head which quickly dissipates. Decent lacing. Cloudy reddish brown auburn color Smells hoppy and a nice malt presence. Very well balanced taste. Nice hopppy aftertaste. not too bitter, bit of a roasted taste. Great mouthfeel. As it warms the alcohol presence become quick apparent however.Overall its good, but not worth what it costs when there are so many alternatives as good if not better for cheaper.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is pine, floral, grass. Medium mouth, light bitterness, citrus, light dry finish, very good.

Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.
Pours a very cloudy, very dark golden orange color with light tangerine edges and a 1.5 finger white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Really good retention with streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Dank resinous hop aroma with lots of pine needle, spruce tip and earthy grass character. This is countered by a subtle citrus presence along with boozy sweetness and a caramel malt backbone.
On the fuller end of medium bodied with a very dry and dank earthy hop presence that lingers over the malt backbone and boozy sweetness into a slightly dry finish. Dry, sticky and bitter with aggressive hops up front. The hop profile is a bit one dimensional however with only very subtle citrus character. Could use some more sweetness for balance. Malt backbone is a bit too heavy for my liking with notes of caramel, toffee and biscuit followed by boozy heat in finish. Decently hoppy but alcohol and strong malt flavors hinder the flavor a bit.

Golden and cloudy with a ton of white foamy head. Nice grapefruit and apricot flavor to it. Hoppy and bitter but flows smooth. Good shizz

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours an amber color with a full bouquet of flowers emitting from it. Taste is crisp but distinctly bitter. The full hops taste overpowers this beer, leaving it all on the palate after the swallow. A mild clove and lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. A good Imperial IPA, just not my style.

A double IPA for a fortnight and a day #12...
Light amber color with mild head and not very carbonated. Of course very hoppy aroma with citrus notes. Very smooth. Initial bitterness gives way to great flavor that quickly diminishes. A bit spicy also. Not too heavy on flavor and it sits a little lower on the palate than I like

Draft to taster. Looks good; a semi-transparent deep orange with thin foamy off-white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells solid; hoppy with a fairly big pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer.
