Strong aroma of sweet malt, and resinous hops. Taste is slightly sweet, almost fruity. Thick resin flavor comes in, along with a hop bite. Hints of the 9% alcohol in subsequent drinks. Very flavorful, but not overpowering like most Imperial IPA are.
Sweet fruity aroma, mainly smells like hops. Taste is slightly cloying and sweet with a slightly bigger edge. This fades as a slow crescendo of peach flavor slowly builds. Finish is very nice and tasty, not juice-like or over fruity at all. Refreshing, and it hides its 8.9% ABV amazingly well.
Bottled 4/12/2022, tasted on 4/30/2022. Super fresh.
Faint sweet hop aroma. Taste starts with a sharp hip edge, then turns really sweet with caramel malt, and finishes even sweeter almost like sugar and hops bitterness mixed together. Aftertaste is a lingering mild sweetness, but then a sourness creeps in at the end. Overall too harsh and sweet.
Got this as part of a Hoppy Christmas mix pack in 2021.
Great fresh hop aroma with hints of yeast, reminiscent of Huma Lupa. Flavor is sharp and sweet, with a slightly ragged edge on the back end, followed by strong caramel malt sweetness. Too sweet and bitter for my tastes.
Thick, sweet aroma with occasional breakthroughs of sharp citrus smells. Flavor streaks out all over the palate, with resiny bite of hops that sits pretty bitter before slowly fading to leave a mild malt and yeast taste. Interesting, but a bit too resiny for me.
Nice, broad, bright hop aroma. Taste has hop bite and then a mouthful of hop flavors and bitterness. Has a slight edge to the hoppiness, but not overpowering. Caramel malt sweetness in the background can be tasted in amongst the hop waves.
