Laughing Dog Devil Dog Imperial IPA

I stopped in to Al’s of Hampden to kill time prior to my work holiday party and ordered a glass of Laughing Dog Devil Dog Imperial IPA. The beer pours an orange amber color with a frothy white head. The aroma consists of caramel, toffee, tangerine, grapefruit, and sugar. The taste is sweet with lots of caramel on the front end before a light bitterness with grapefruit, tangerine, and orange comes out on the tongue. The finish has a spicy pine and pepper flavor. The alcohol content is 10% ABV. I thought this was a decent Imperial IPA, but it falls on the sweeter side rather than the bitter side. So be warned that this beer is not a hop bomb.
