Another fine imperial IPA. Flavorful but not overpowering at 8.5 ABV. Limited release is fun while it lasts.

Sample at TK Pizza & Pasta. The beer pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes gradually to an outer ring. Stringy lacing. Aroma of piney hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, grapefruit and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a piney hop aftertaste. Above average overall.

Poured into a pint glass.
3.75 A: Lightly hazed light orange color. Two fingers of pillowy beige head. Retention is good and a short ring of lacing is left.
3.5 S: Surprisingly spicy hoppiness. Followed by herbal and piney hops and peach and papaya fruitiness. Moderate caramel maltiness with biscuit and just a touch of bready yeastiness.
3.25 T: Tastes like it smells. Hops are - in decreasing strength - spicy, piney, herbal, citrusy. Again lots of peach fruitiness. A touch of vegetables. Caramel and biscuit malts.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and smooth.
3.25 D: Decent overall, but does have a touch of off-flavor and it pretty average otherwise.

Draught at Craft Heads, Shibuya. Clear amber - white head. Resin. Nice hoppy. Malty. Rather high sweetness. Not that fresh. Aggressive. Red berries. Marzipan. Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Pours a clean caramel color with a floral aroma. Taste is intially full floral and bitter but then dissipates into a cities malt flavor. Overall a good beer for the style, full of flavor and not excessively bitter. Idiosynkrasie (7533) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 28, 2015
500ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, orangey-copper-ish amber colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Malty aroma, caramel, a touch of almond, resinous and citrusy hoppy overtones, hints of lemon, lemon zest, grapefruit, a fresh breeze of mint, even a touch of cedar. Taste is dry, citrusy hoppy, notes of lemon, a touch of grapefruit and mint, lime peel, discreet pale malty background. Relatively light body, hence very drinkable. annunz123 (957) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 26, 2015
Sweet, fruity aroma with caramel, citrus, and cherry. Flavor starts with sweet malt and finishes with fruit bitterness. With the heavy malt character this is almost more like an ESB or English style IPA, but in any case this is a really good beer.
