Tap. Fluffy creamy eggshell head, hazy burnt sunset orange. Musty grapefruit hops, leafy, and light fruit aromas. Flavor is decently bitter with citrus burn and then leans toward a lighter fruit hop profile with some grassiness in the finish. Medium soft velvety body.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2015 Poured from tap at Port City - pours lovely dark golden honey in color with white foam head that clings nicely to the glass. Wonderful example of a double IPA with nicely balanced flavors and nose of pine, citrus and malts.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good for an Imperial IPA. The sweetness in an imperial tends to override the hop flavor. For IPA-heads the hop is everything. Some craft breweries can achieve the high alcohlol level of an imperial without completely drowning out the hops. Maniacal is not there but it lets a little hop flavor through.
