3.93/5  rDev -3.2%

A: About a finger of white head that sticks around for a decent amount of time. The lacing is significant and welcomed. Hazy yellow color.

S: Grassy hop aroma with a nice amount of citrus. Not punch you in the face hoppy or resinous, it's very nicely balanced and fruity, but not overly impressive.

T: The taste hints more towards the fruit side as well. Really citrusy with orange all over the place. The bitter hops are there, but not in any way as big as the fruits.

MF: Extremely drinkable. I think the fruits over the bitter hops really works well with this. Lower than average carbonation, but I wouldn't say it's under carbonated. No hint of alcohol.

O: Very drinkable, solid IPA. I would recommend it to anyone.

4.78/5  rDev +17.7%

Appearance: Golden clear color with good lingering white head.

Smell: Like a punch of pine with whimsical hints of citrus. Take another sniff, its almost grassy now and dank.

Taste: Immediate taste of the bitter hops followed by flows of piney citrusy flavors and a bit of alcohol but not too much because you want to take another sip even after that nice bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: The beer sits on the pallette well and refreshes even with the dry hopness.

Overall: Overall a very good Imperial IPA. The flavors and smells are not unique but the combination and the drinkability of a 9% ABV beer make this a standout 2xIPA IMO.

2.68/5  rDev -34%

Amber color, quarter inch white head, slight haze.

Smell was hops and DMS. Unfortunate for us, we couldn't get over the rotten cabbage smell.
Flavor was balanced between hops and malt, with the rotten smell always on the nose.
Carbonation was fine.
Overall the beer was hard to drink. At first I thought the off flavor may have been diacetyl, but it had more of a rotten sulfur-like rotten smell. I've tasted something similar in a pilsner I made and extended lagering really helped to clean up the DMS.

The appearances of this beer is a light golden color, moderately cloudy with a half inch head. Good lacing throughout the drink.

The smell consists of a pineapple citrus and pine, with a hint of orange citrus.

The taste is pine up front, then citrus because of orange and pineapple. No spice. It is a classic india pale ale and tastes very good for 8.8% ABV.

The mouthfeel is very good, very smooth with no carbonation. The beer is not too heavy and extremely easy to drink.

Overall this beer is great. Not unique but smooth, flavorful and easy to drink. 8.8% ABV makes it a very worthy brew that goes down easily and gets you to the brink quickly.
