A: Deep gold to copper in color, crystal clear, thin layer of head around the ring of the glass – 4.50, S: Tons of tropical fruits including mango, bananas and pineapple. I also get quite a bit of melon and grapefruit as well as some bubblegum. A pleasant bready sweetness provides a light brush over the top of the nose, all around a spectacular nose - 4.50, T: Tons of resin and heavily pungent, lots of grapefruit and pith, bitterness is aggressive but is balanced quite well with the sweetness of the caramel malts – 4.25, M: Medium bodied with a mild creaminess and tickle on the tongue from the continuing effervescence – 3.75, D: All around a spectacular beer and great representation of the style – 4.25

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

Poured an attractive golden color in a tulip with a 1.5 finger head.

Aroma- light grapefruit, not as intense as in other Imperial IPAs.

Mouth feel: lighter at first; as the beer warms up increased pungency.

Taste- lighter grapefruit, semi-sweet. Not as pronounced as other DIPAs in citrus aroma/taste; milder and more drinkable. Quite smooth for a DIPA.

The beer becomes more bitter and hoppy with warming. Quite hoppy for a DIPA.

Overall- an excellent DIPA. Milder than most, but very drinkable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A - Two-finger creamy head; translucent golden straw-colored beverage, filled with tons of bubbles and a slightly pulpy look. Thick web-like lacing and good head retention.

S - Strong hop aroma, as well as a noticeable malt presence. Floral, citrus peel, biscuit or toast.

T - Lighter than I expected, with no hint of the 9.5%. Sweet, and follows the nose, except some tropical fruit/mango hops, with minimal appearance of citrus. Very malty, but well-balanced; only specific malt profile I can pick out is caramel, and it's not overpowering. I wonder if this would have been hoppier two months ago.

M - Medium to medium-light. Very smooth, with a hint of unpleasant grapefruit peel in the finish, no notice of alcohol, no sting, and no foaming. Extremely smooth to drink.

O - This is an excellent, smooth DIPA, and it doesn't taste worse for wear despite being over three months old. I'm really curious if this is hoppier when fresher, but based on Union Jack, I wouldn't be surprised if it's just a very well-balanced DIPA.

Bottled in late April, consumed in early August.
