Bottle pour..aroma is dominated by bready..dough malt sweetness..not much else..mouthfeel and taste follows suit..kind of like a 1 trick pony here, not my cup of tea for a double as too much malt presence and not enough hop essence..

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Little aroma. Ruby-caramel color with thick lace. Flavors are strikingly mild for a DIPA but include toasted pine nuts, some orange and toast crust. Maybe some honey on the finish. A little bit muddled, but seems close.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich, hazy orange and copper coloured body with a nice tan head, only about a centimetre tall. Aroma of pungent tropical fruits, hops (of course), alcohol and a nice rich malt backbone. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong hoppy flavour at first, tropical fruits, light pine, strong syrupy maltiness and a rich deep alcohol note at the end. Aftertaste shows a very well-balanced hoppy flavour with tropical fruits, a touch of sugars and a nice complexity at the end. Overall, a surprisingly well-balanced, robust Imperial IPA with a smooth hoppy flavour at the end - great, to be honest. I sampled this pint on draught for US$7,00 at TJ Stone’s in Alexandria, Virginia on 28-August-2015.
