4.09/5 rDev +10.8%
A - Burnt orange, with loads of floating sediment and little head.
S - Fruits (orange peel), floral, pine. This should be hoppy and good
T - Honey malts with a burst of sweetness. A long warm spicy finish. Hints of butterscotch.
M - Light backbone with some burn
Straightforward DIPA which allows the flavors to shine thru. Well crafted

Light copper color...mixed size bubbles hung around for awhile. Aroma of melons. Taste is immediately rough if not harsh, a significant assault on the tongue to cause "funky face." I've smelled that smell before, and it's often near rotting melons or trash cans. Not pretty. Is that an aerosol component with those esters?!! Humm...clean lines?
On the other hand, this was mailed to me through BeerJobber.com with their Imperial Stout, which I've yet to rate.
Also, in it's defense, there's seemingly a lot of hops and significant malts, butterscotch, and some pine that I enjoy. But the alcohol is strong, and the esters or something makes this an tooth enamel remover...let me take 5 minutes and report back.
Back...oh yes...big melon aroma - can't escape it...bright hop alcohol flavors...ah...hope I'm not shipwrecked with just this beer...let me give it 10 more minutes...
Oh boy...peed, drank water, ate a cookie and this mofo stands out as something that could wreck a ship, or your palate!! This is more of a palate wrecker than Ballast Point's! It's an utter assault but I'm still plowing through and won't pour it out!!! I'll check back in ten.
Ooooh...did I mention toothpaste and candy canes, and , despite all I've said quite unique and intriguing, compelling, and tasty even if I don't quite know if I like it!!...and melon in the nose...~...signing off but I will finish this beer...ayieeee!!!!

A: measured my pour into a tulip as I had decided not to include the yeast and sediment from the bottom. Got a slightly hazy pale amber body with a minimal head, off-white in shade.
S: not much of note here, some sweet pale malt smells and hoppy floral notes
T: alcohol overpowered other flavors for me on the first few sips - perhaps I drank it too soon out of the fridge - needed to warm for expected butterscotchy malt flavors and, in this case, sharp pine and subtle resin flavors from the hops
M: astringent on the first few sips, never developed much feel - there was always a slight astringence to offset any smooth coating - even once the beer had warmed - perhaps the damage was done at that point.
O: my most bland scores to-date (300+ reviews as of this entry). For me, not a return-to beer simply because there are so many DIPAs out there that I enjoy that aren't expensive or hard to find. That said, if you're a fan of DIPAs, I'd still say try it anyway. Right?

A garnet amber brew with a great tan head. It pours clear with a slight fog showing all it's carbonation streaming to the surface. Nice webbing that sticks to the glass and lingers forever.
Juicy fruit gum, tropical fruits and toasty grains... This brew has some great Imperial IPA scents. Personally I like my IIPA's to be punch you in the face bold but this one is super just the same.
Flavor is good but slips even further from the bold mark that I prefer. Pineapple and toasted cereal balance each other and a tart hop bitterness rounds out the package.
The mouthfeel is prickled with a well deserved dose of hop bitterness and an even healthier dose of carbonation. The hops really have a hold on this brew and the finish reflects the bitter cones presence. Not the best IIPA but a damn fine one. So glad I got to check this one out.
