Tap in a bumped pint glass at Blue 5 in Roanoke, VA. ECBT continues with crew intact. Golden orange color with really solid lacing and quarter finger white head. Pine and floral qualities work well in the aroma along with grassy notes. Taste is pine and resin first, then a little bit of bitter citrus rind. Feels pretty standard imperial IPA fare with a bigger bitter quotient than some. Nice clean finish after a pretty slick, piney mouthfeel. I’ll continue to like this for a long time...or until I taste my next imperial IPA.

Pours a nice coppee color with a light off white head. Aroma of pine/citrus. Finishes pretty easily. Not overwhelming on the bitterness of the hops. Medium bodied.

Frank (4061) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2016
This stuff is pretty solid. It’s golden w/ a nice looking white head and creamy patches of lace. It’s smell is kinda floral and citrusy, not really as vibrant as I prefer but decent. This stuff is maybe a touch on the heavy side for me but still somewhat drinkable with its creamy carbonation. It finishes w/ some lingering fruity sweetness and rather firm bitterness. This is a good beer, not out of this world in any respect, but solid w/ no real off flavors or problems. I wouldn’t turn one down if offered.

Floral and grassy aroma, clear copper color, head dissipates quickly, medium body thin for imperial but in style for IPA, malt, syrup, banana, lemon flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap pour at Upstairs. Pour was nearly clear golden with a small head that quickly dissipated, leaving a small foam ring. Aroma of pine and grapefruit matched the initial taste with a pine and a slight tar aftertaste. There was not much taste of hops or a hop bite. Very drinkable IPA.
