Warlander (One Trick Pony)

This Imperial IPA was nice to try off the tap at One Trick Pony's tasting room. The sip of it made an impression, enough to order it.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This cloudy brown brew was nice to look at. The color was an indication of what was to come. The white head dissipated quickly. It smelled of sweet malt (over the potpourri stink in the corner I was sitting).

Taste: That brown malt was very sweet. It was sweeter than expected. At 10% ABV, you'd think all that sweet would be gone. It was dry too though. It was thick to drink. A nice sipable beer. Keeps you from drinking it too fast. It had a nice floral hoppiness that made the sweetness almost sappy. It also had a grassy taste to it. It's not your typical citrus or pine hop-crazy Imperial IPA (though based on the hop bill on the site I'm surprised). This was a nice treat. I was told this was going fast. Hope they brew it again!

From the OTP site:
Brewed with American 2-Row, Caramel, Chocolate and Munich malts, spiked with a healthy addition of Piloncillo sugar. Aroma-hopped with a bouquet of Warrior, Citra, and Cascade hops.
