I poured this beer from a growler and admired its beauty for a moment. Halfway through my pint I thought this is a beer worth reviewing, so I gulped it down so I could assess the beer from square one. Now I just want to enjoy this Imperial buzz. Laces the side of a glass like you're drawing the shades at night, ready for bed. Heavy aroma, boozy, more going on than I care to talk about right now. G'Knight.

dark red 1 finger off-white head. Nose is pretty intense. very pine forward, almost medicine like so intense. taste is also pretty intense. lots of pine, mango, fruit, apple. but it’s all masked by an intense bitterness.

Ah, Gordon. A winter drink for hop heads. Pours dark red amber from the can, good lacing. Smell is grapefruit, pine, dank hops. Taste is sweet, resiny caramel, nicely hopped with a superb thick chewy mouthfeel. The sweetness plus the hops plus the booze soothes the soul--a good one to put you to sleep.
