Light for an imperial. Well defined head that lasts. Enough hop to satisfy but not overpower.

Thanks to Tom for this. Not an overpowering IPA but a very drinkable one for the size. Pours a hazy light straw gold with a quickly disappearing white top. Aroma is floral and citrus hops with a slight orange zest. Taste is a slow floral hop bitterness the builds. It’s cut somewhat with the sweet malts that are slightly bready. Really nice IPA.

Very nice. On the pine side of big IPAs rather than citrus. Lovely and complex and really very drinkable. A lovely beverage.

12 oz draft.
Pours a bright, clear, pale orange copper with a very thick, creamy, white head. Smell is dank herbal hops, candied orange peel, and a bit of caramel. Starts off with a big dose of citric and grassy hops slowly giving way to a mix of lightly toasted caramel malt, pine, and even more hop oils. The finish has lots of hop bitterness and some lasting dryness. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

12oz bottle, aromas of grassy and roasty hops, pale color, frothy head, light sweetness, medium bitterness, well balanced. lively CO2, medium body, almost light for this style. Grassy, earthy notes in taste, slight bitter finish. This was one of those beers that the more I drank of it, the more I liked it.,
