A: Orange brown in color, mostly clear, but far form crystal. A light tan head decorates the top with fluffy goodness.

S: Tropical fruit. Loaded with orange, tangerine, pineapple and mango. Sweet caramel rounds out the finish, with just a touch of booze.

T: Orange peel, grapefruit and a touch of pine. There's some nice sweetness in the finish, as well as some assertive lingering bitterness. The hint of booze still comes through in the flavor.

M: Medium in body, fine carbonation, and a lingering bitterness to the finish.

O: Overall pretty good brew.. Solid bitterness, interesting flavor and aroma. Just fine.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours out a crystal clear light bronze / orangish with a two finger whit head. Leaves beautiful lacing.

S - Sweet malt and Dank hops, earthy, garlic, breadiness.

T - Sweet malt breadiness, garlic, onion, slight bitterness. Not a ton of hop flavor. No date on the bottle.

M - Full bodied chewy and soft in the mouth. Carbonation is high and assertive with the bitterness.

O - This Imperial Ipa is pleasure to drink with some great qualities but it needs a little more of something to make it more impressive. Its missing the wow factor that a lot of great IPA's have. Plus I wish there was a date on the bottle. If your looking for a great imperial IPA look somewhere else, cheers!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured 22oz bottle into New Belgium globe

A-Pours a slightly hazy dark copper body under a one finger tight bubbled off-white head.

S-The the aroma is prominent malty with light hops that are piney and resiny over the sweet caramel malt base.

T-Taste is sweet up front, then bitter, citrus and lingering bitterness,

M-Medium to full bodied with a slightly chewy and sticky body, soft gentle carbonation.

O-Overall an average DIPA that hides the hops.
