3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is hopped, but more full of syrupy sweet character. Appearance is a little more pale than expected. Taste is sweet , but not overly so, but lacking strong hop fullness. Palate is dry despite full sweetness, making this drinkable, sweet, and hopped. Very nice.

Nicely hoppy nose with tropical fruity mango, pineapple, peach, resin, spruce and sweet malty notes; taste is well bodied and balanced between sweet, fruity and bitter.

I expected something way more aggressive but it’s just the opposite: everything in this beer is sooo well balanced! You get a nice malty sweetness at first and the finish is gently bitter. Dangerously refreshing and drinkable to be a 9% ABV Imperial IPA! jls321 (27) - California, USA - JUN 15, 2017
