Poured from a 750ml. bottle into a La Fin Du Monde tulip glass.
The color is a orange/amber with some yellowish highlights. There is a big head on this beer with about three fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.
The smell is pretty earthy with some of the Columbus hop aroma being present. The malts have presence here with as well adding to the earthy damp aroma.
The taste has a big push of juicy fruit flavor that seems to hinge on the bitterness that frames this beer throughout. This a touch of grapefruit but it gives into some melon flavor and some bready flavor that leads into the bitterness that comes in at the end to slap this beer down with a loud period.
The feel of this beer is a bit big. There is no denying the alcohol that weights here but does not take away from the drinkability of this beer. It's a pleasure going down.

A- pours clear and golden color with a small fizzy white head that reduces to a small layer skimming the top no lacing left behind
S- very intriguing nose, lots of fruity esters with some pear, orange peel, candied citrus fruit, some sweet sugary malt. Picking up some underlying hop aroma, flowery and citrusy. Also strangely picking up some lactose, dairy like sourness as well. Unique to say the least
T- the fruitiness follows the aroma with notes of fresh berries and stone fruit. Big malty backbone mid-palate, but it still underlies the fruity aspect of flavors. The bitterness is actually hidden until the finish, and some floral hops linger on the palate
M- medium body with low carbonation lead to a creamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish, just a hint of alcohol warmth at the end
O- this tastes unlike any IIPA I've tried, but I dig it. Good fruity notes with enough hops to keep it bitter

On-tap 12/21/2013 at Track 84, in Warwick, RI served in a tulip glass.
A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains floral hops, caramelized malts and fruity citrus.
T: The taste starts out sweet with a strong floral hops bitterness followed by a mild citrus and caramel sweetness. The malt character is thin for the style but brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy.
M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.
O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid 2IPA to drink for a while.

22oz bottle purchased as a single from Yankee Spirits, Sturbridge, MA.
Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 3/4" beige head over the cloudy golden amber brew. Head keeps on keeping on, and sweet and citrus fills the aroma.
Taste starts sweet, quickly to the citrus middle, and more of the same through the close, with building bitterness near the swallow. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is good. Nice one.

So glad to be drinking Damase's beers, and now to try his Imperial IPA, and a nice little homage to the Gonzo BBQ cookoffs (hopefully) with the little grill on the bottle.
Pours a decent foamy bubbly slightly creamy 1/4 finger head, not bad for the abv though, fades semi slowly too with a high water mark of lacing and some legs too, a quite hazy candy honey orange colored beer.
Nose is interesting and kinda unique. I get a decent malt character, a mild honey malt even, with a touch of a toasty grainy and even a little crackery malt, hint of candy too, and a little estery booze warmth with touch of papery yeast aroma. HOps are tehre, but not crazy, some mild citrus in there with touch of candied orange peel, a mild juicy fruit almost apricot like stone fruit, hint of what seems to be a big bitter hop base.
Taste has the same base flavors as the aroma but much more pronounced. The malts are still on the mild side, a little honey malt again, mild blond malt with little toasty and more candy like flavors, sweet juicy like malt, but not too sweet either. Booze comes in a bit with some mild warmth and hint of ester character, no yeast flavor at first, but then a touch of a papery yeast flavor later. Hops are decent, a hint of citrus and candied orange peel again, also more of that stone fruit, a juicy apricot, a bit of a fruit smoothie, hint of a tangerine like citrus but very mild, and hint of a spicy hop character. Bitterness is fair and plateaus quickly, no real ramping character. Finish however, dries a bit as it wasn't really sweet to start, but the drying really brings out the bitterness as it really ramps now, a nice spicy hop character with more citrus and a bit of a orange marmalade with orange peel chunks, little grainy cracker malt and strange honey like character lingering, hint of warming booze too.
Mouth is med to a bit fuller bod, mild warming booze, decent carb.
Overall not bad, the hop characters could have been a bit more but the bitterness is right on, malts add a decent balance and not too sweet, nice malt character esp that honey malt flavor, the only real issue I found was that light paper like yeast flavor that is mostly background but often pops up to ruin the overall flavor a bit.
