22oz bottle received in a trade with brokenleadedcask. Thanks! Poured into a Bruery tulip (received as an extra in a trade with Vurt - thanks!).

A - Pours a beautiful dark copper, crystal clear with tons of bubbles rising constantly thorughout the glass. Dense two finger, cream colored head with good retention. Leaves behind lots of sticky lacing.

S - Lots of citrusy hops - orange and grapefruit. Good fruityness and some dark caramel aromas too. Good double IPA a nice hop forward focus.

T - Stong alcohol presence here that pervades the entire taste experience. Sharp hop bitterness and citrusy flavors. Strong malt backbone underneath the hops...full and rich, lots of caramel.

M - Thick and chewy malt body - very full. Strong carbonation with a certain smoothness and creaminess to it. Bitterness is sharp and lingers for a good long time.

D - Not really, but tends towards being a sipper of a double IPA. I find this to have the character of a strong ale opposed to a double IPA. Alcohol is high at 9.4%, limiting drinkability...I'm definitely getting thru this bomber without a problem, but I think it is all I'm having tonight.

Poured from a bottle with a hazy copper color and a decently foamy white head. Has an okay pine aroma. Taste begins with a sweet citrus flavor before turning into a dry pine flavor towards the end. There is a light amount of hops for an imperial IPA, and even the flavor is lighter than I’d expect. This is a decent beer overall, but not a great imperial IPA. I prefer New Holland’s Mad Hatter to this.

A - Pours a dark amber with a one-finger foamy white head. Light amount of lacing.

S - Not much of an aroma. Light amount of tropical fruit and some bready malt.

T - Nice blend of sweet caramel malts and tropical fruits. Good amount of piney hops in the finish. The hops produce a good amount of lingering bitterness in the finish.

M - Heavy bodied with medium carbonation. Dry and sticky mouthfeel.

O - A very decent DIPA. Would definetly drink again.

Pours a hazy deep amber hue with a lasting thick off white head. The aroma is super hoppy. Grapefruit, pine, and grass abound. It sips clean and sticky as any good dipa should. The hoppy resin just coats the mouth in a bbeautiful way. The taste is definitely hop forward with tons of citrus and pine resin up front but there is a generous amount of malt balancing the flavor out. This is a very hop forward beer thatd please any hop head but it is also quite well balanced. It is no 90 minute but it is a damn good imperial ipa.
