330 ml bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Best before May 18, 2017. Kind of doubt that best by date for an imperial IPA. Murky brownish orange with a finger to two of off-white head. Some yeast sediment floaters. Aromas of citrus, pine, hop oils, toasty notes, biscuit, yeast. Tastes of citrus, bitter floral, biscuit, toasty notes. Medium body with a dry finish. Bit of an old school style to this.
