The pour was a cloudy medium orange with a large (2-3 finger) white cottony head that receded slowly, down to a few fluffy puddles and a medium collar with good sticky spotty lacing.
The aroma was on the mild side with a light grain malt, pine hops and an earthy yeast and had notes of caramel, honey and citrus (grapefruit and orange).
The taste was a malty bitter-sweet with hints of honey and caramel from the onset, but quickly became intensely hoppy with a strong citrus peel taste and a nice grapefruit presence at the end. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow, with a bold hoppy citrus taste left lying on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a decent moderate to strong carbonation.
Overall not as bitter as I expected. Although it was nice and hoppy with a mild caramel sweetness mixed in, to put it simply it is a great Imperial IPA...
