Notes/Commercial Description:
Hop Logic Imperial IPA is brewed for the true "Hop Head." The nose bursts with fresh hop aromas while the palate is balanced with just enough bitterness to linger without overwhelming the more subtle among the hops flavors. The winning equation is – five quality malts plus five flavorful hops equals one fine beer! Sounds logical to us.

Grapefruity smell, fabulous hoppy color,, very balanced taste, the bitter is very much there but quiets on the finish. Very classy IPA, is that the Imperial? Pretty Imperial to me. I usually do not pay $8 for a 22 ounce bottle but I am glad to get this one.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a nice two finger white head with good retention and tons of pillowy lacing. Great aroma of resinous piney and citrus hops, sweet bready malt, tempting. Flavor is unusual, with an immediate piney hop assault that seems to shut down the taste buds, leaving an interesting biscuity taste at the roof of my mouth. Followed by light citrus and tropical fruit, biscuit malt, piney, herbal hops and finishing with a lingering herbal hop bitterness. Medium bodied with light creaminess. I have to say the initial flavor assault is unusual, but there is plenty of malt support for the intense hops and I found the apparent confusion of my taste buds to be pleasant. Most aggressively hopped beers are not to my taste if they do not have good flavor support, but I really found the flavor and intense hops here enjoyable. I really enjoyed this worthy imperial IPA.

Pours a bright and Lear light gold color with a very nice white head.

Aromas are of resin, hard candies, and some stinky floral notes. Smells a little off to me.

Taste is resiny and floral up front. Some earthiness, light hard candy sweetness, and general pine bitterness. The finish is bitter and crisp, with a real mineral like bite on the finish. This is a flavorful DIPA, but the bitterness is strong, and this lacks balance.

Mouthfeel is smooth, full, and crisp with nice carbonation.

Overall, this is a pretty good, but overly bitter DIPA that could use some clean up and balance to be really good. I'd pass on this again with the $7 price tag though.

Pours a rich amber colour, some lightness to it. Head is pale beige/cream-coloured. Big bubbles but settles into good nodules of foam with nice lace trails left behind. Looks pretty nice.

Smells hugely hoppy. Mega-citric with notes of pine bark and resin, and spicy edge to that resin. Bit too much, it just smells overly intense and hoppy.

Tastes a bit old, actually. Didn't expect that from the amount of hops on the nose. But honey, sweetness, slight touch of flat cardboard, in fact and yeah, vanilla and cinnamon. At the back are definite hops - citric and slightly resinous, but it overall tastes a bit flat and almost old, despite the hop presence which is there. Just subdued.

Decent body, not much hop pull. Feels quite bitty, almost solid. Quite nice though.

Drinks alright, but doesn't really emphasise enough of its decent characters.
