Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice hops aroma floral with a slight spice. Floral and fruity flavors mixed well with the malt build. I was impressed wit this Impy IPA. For a newer brewer at this time they did a good job.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty sloppy head which does not have much form or substance. Reduces to a muddled mess of rather large bubbles. Excellent aroma though. Lots of succulent hops, pineapple and peaches, a bit of caramel sweetness and some roasted grains. Color is a nice dark brownish orange. Wow, very refreshing for a pretty hopped up and potent brew. Lots more mellow hops that put forth a decent bitterness. Some tea leaves and herbal flavors kind of give a dry pasty mouthfeel. Some fruit and a good amount of roasted grains again. Pretty up front alcohol punch with a bit of lingering burn. Finishes dry and bitter. A pretty darn good IIPA. Very roasty and hoppy!
