3.68/5 rDev -6.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75
330ml bottle poured into tulip 15/1/13
A murky dark amber and it just looks like thick liquid right out of the bottle, I cant see many visible bubbles but there's a two finger head that falls to a dense finger of foam and then it just sits there, great retention with some thick rings of lace, looks bad ass
S I was expecting a massive hop overkill but I'm getting loads of caramels and a little biscuit, fairly malty but there's some citric and earthy hops in there. This was just released here but I'm guessing it took a long time to arrive, it smells decent but faded
T sweet malty caramel notes with some grapefruit rind and pine sap, again it tastes like a massive DIPA but with some time behind it, faint booze but I'd say its very well hidden considering its 13%, I'd never guess its that strong
M thick and just a little gritty, very little heat and that impresses me, piney caramel rind lingers on the finish strong and long
O its a big beer but I was expecting an enamel stripping fuck off monster, reminds me more of a Barley Wine then a DIPA, more malt then expected but still very enjoyable
No bottle date that I can see, I'd assume its relatively fresh seeing how its a new release here in Alberta but all signs point to age. hops have faded, the booze is so well hidden I could see this creating problems for some and the malty caramels coming out strong, I liked it but wonder if its the experience the brewer intended

Pours dark orange, decent light beige head that goes (not too fast) to a nice lace, with lots of traces on the glass.
Fruity hop smell from afar. Close in and you get huge tangerine, pineapple, sweet peach, extra faint tropical notes too, grapefruit, fruit jam, caramel, warm alcohol (not too much tho), faint pine and breadiness.
Starts really sweet, full off peach and tangerine jam, pineapple syrup, faint papaya and passion fruit, grapefruit and oranges (with lots of bitter peel later on). Strong alcohol and bitter hops settle in, both rather pleasant, not disturbing. Big green profile, leafy, dank, touch of pine, big hop oils, with a really big bitterness in the end. The alcohol helps push the fruitiness through the bitter "barrier", leaving lots of the sweet tastiness in the aftertaste, at the cost of some extra booziness.
Medium body, a bit oily, medium carbonation. Alcohol is almost anesthetic towards the end, really piles up, so be careful. So does the syrupy sweetness.
Lots of tasty hops and almost decently handled huge abv, quite a monster of a beer.

Beautiful IPA: nice white head, slightly hazy orange body.
Hoppy aroma with sweet caramel and biscuit as well.
Incredibly sweet, from malts to hop profile to sugar. Fruity, tropical, thick and syrupy. The bitterness is overwhelmed by the sweetness.
Sticky and syrupy.
This reminds me of Devil Dancer: potent, incredibly sweet, and hoppy. Too sweet for my tastes.

4.36/5 rDev +10.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
A: orange. Clear. Medium-small frothy head. Great lacing throughout drink.
S: herbal. a bit of alcohol
T: fruity. Sweet. Mango, orange and residual sugar dominate the palette. Warming alcohol flavors at the end. Balanced extremely well.
M: medium carbonation. Medium-heavy body. Sweet.
O: probably one of the best imperial IPA's that I have tried. The balance between hops, malt, and alcohol is impeccable. Bravo. Would have rated higher if aroma was more prevalent.
