12 oz. Can from world beers. Light amber color. Scent of hops and a nice sweet grapefruit aroma. Tastes hoppy. Not really sweet at all. Still, very drinkable. Good beer for the price.

A vigorous pour into my teku glass produces a two finger thick, pale tan colored head. The beer is a bright, copper color that shows a brilliantly clear, golden copper color. The beer smells of crystal malt and then some supporting hop character. Sweet tea notes, caramelized grain, touches of grapefruit, and some pine like notes.

The beer has a solid bitterness, with a lingering pine and menthol astringency, with an up front grapefruit zest character. The finish also has a toasted whole grain cracker note, some lingering sweet tea leaning crystal malt notes, as well as a caramelized note that adds a bit too much here. The body is a bit on the chewy side for an IPA.

Not really my type of IPA, a bit too malt focused, and the hop character could be a lot more floral and characterful. Wow, I was quite surprised that this was an Imperial IPA, really makes me like it even less.

A: Orangish/Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, Thick White Head, Good Lacing S: This smells like a bad, gritty barleywine. There is zero bottle dating but I am going to say that this is an old bottle. T: This is completely devoid of any hops... M: Great Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, ...this is either an old bottle or just junk. Overall....nothing more to say.
