I first had this beer at the Worthy brewery, in Bend summer 2013. It's smoothness amazed me. 8 hop varieties blended perfectly. It pours bright, illuminates the table, head is coconut white, lacing fragile. Carbonation lively, it almost purrs as it reaches the head. Taste is lite citrus, pineapple flows to the front, no bite, no bitter. I can't find the 8.5 ALC near the surface, it must hide at the bottom of the glass. Great beer, very enjoyable, melts into a smile after each swallow. Cheers!

Pours a bright golden blonde color with a decent, frothy head into my glass. As pale as it can possibly be.

The use of 8 different hop varieties makes for a difficult analysis of the aroma profile. It has the new school citrus mated to old school pine. But, it's also spicy and balanced.

It's citruspineexplodusfragilicus. I can't think of any other way to describe it. A rogue's gallery of hops.

Biscuity texture comes through in the finish with a dogpile of citrus, pine, spice and so forth.

This would make an excellent introduction to the style. It takes the elements of the more popular IPAs and crams them into one bad mother.

Poured from the 22 oz bomber into a tulip.
Pour clear medium amber with an inch of tiny bubbly head.
Smells malty and hoppy. Good balance.
Taste is classic west coast IPA. Malts and hops are balanced. Not overly hoppy. Not overly bitter.
Mouthfeel was excellent.
For a west coast IPA, I thought it was quite good.

22oz bottle poured into a large mug. 41 F. Bottle code is 0833 A2 1506, whatever that means. I hope it doesn't mean March of last year.

Pours slightly coppery golden, with a head that elicited the word "cuddly" from my imagination: medium-large, fluffy, creamy, silky. Lots of carbonation. Clear. It looks nice. Head retention is midrange, fades to halfway quickly and then slowly from there. Smell is Quite hoppy, some honeysuckle and lots of generic flower, citrus blossoms and citrus rind.

Taste is orangey -- not just citrus, specifically orange. I'm a little on the fence about whether this is good or not, but I'm enjoying it right now. Plenty of zest bitterness, lots of flower sweetness.

Mouthfeel is dry, light, nice. Overall, this is good. I like it.

Clear deep gold with two fingers of long lasting cream colored head. Plenty of lace.
Smell is crushed wild strawberries. Some bready malt as well.
Taste is hop oil resins with tangerine and mango. Plenty of sweet bready malts to smooth out the hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to full with plenty of carbonation. It has a long lasting resinous semi dry bitter finish. Overall I really liked this beer. I think it was quite fresh as it is fairly new to the store. It was a decent buy also from a convenience store. It cost about $4.69 for the bomber. I did note the alcohol slightly in the taste. It wasn't off putting but it was my first beer today so a 8.5% abv is noticed. I have been tasting this for about 15 minutes and it still has a cap of head and leaving an almost solid sheet of lace. I would definitely buy this again and hope to find it in the canned version.

22oz bottle. Pours a semi translucent amber color with a half inch of head. Some lacing. The aroma is grapefruit, sweet citrus and some toasted malts. The taste is light citrus and tropical fruit notes with a fair amount of toasted malts. Grapefruit and mango towards the end. Pine hop notes. Good malt backbone and pretty balanced. Somewhat boozey. A bit oily and medium bodied. Overall, pretty good Imperial.
