Leinenkugel Big Eddy Imperial IPA ....

My Friday night beer is a Big Eddy Imperial IPA from Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company.  9% ABV is listed on the twelve ounce bottle.

This beer poured with a small to medium, creamy tan colored head.  The beer color was a very hazy/cloudy, dark orange-ish amber.  The aroma is sweet, with citrus and stewed fruits.  This is definitely a heavier, sweeter Imperial IPA.  There is citrus, pine, caramel/toffee and some noticeable alcohol.  A bitterness runs all the way through it, which goes nicely with the sweeter qualities.  The alcohol, and what seems to be a little spiciness, give it a nice warmth.  The aftertaste leaves you with a little of the bitterness and some caramel/toffee.
