Gemini (Imperial IPA)

22 oz bottle with a stick on label rather than the usual ST, screen printed presentation. Thanks to the wife for bringing this back from SC just a few days before ST hit GA – typical.
Pour is an obvious orange color, but the two things that strike me as particularly prevalent are the light cloudiness and the fact that the beer seems quite thin in appearance.
Nose and tastes are typical for the style with a combination of grapefruit, syrupy alcohol and sweet sugary notes. This is not any easy drink by an stretch of the imagination and the beer begins to wear on me after a pretty short time. Pretty typical for the style in as much as beer produces many aggressive elements that attack the senses but fails to satisfy me. Too much going on.
