Originally reviewed 7/27/11 as Unplugged Imperial IPA

Appearance: Straight pour into a tulip glass. The color is a hazy gold. Two fingers of eggshell-colored head dissipated slowly, leaving trails along the glass, a foamy and spotted lacing, and a ring around the edge.

Smell: An invigorating bouquet of citrus hoppiness greeted my nostrils, which was very welcome. Major grapefruit, but I can detect orange and lemon in there. There are also scents of sweet candy caramel and pine spice. Smells a lot like a high gravity version of their regular pale ale.

Taste: It has a nice hop profile and is not too overpowering, though it leaves a lasting bitterness lingering on the sides of my tongue. The dominant grapefruit is now a bit player to the lemon hoppiness; it is tangy and sweet enough to remind me of Lemon Drops. However, it is not very prominent; the pine spice makes a lot of elbowroom for itself. Nothing stands out flavor-wise; each sip is a nice balance of everything. There is a very slight hint of alcohol at the end of each sip, but it is very minor. As the beer warms, the sweet caramel from the smell emerges, too.

Drinkability: True to style, this definitely delivers on the hops factor (though to what extent will vary from person to person). There is nothing to make it stand out in my mind, but it is a well-crafted brew.

5/13/11 review from "Unplugged Imperial IPA" and asked by the bros to move here:

I enjoyed this beer from the comfort of my own living room. Drank 2 from a tulip glass out of the 12oz bottles.

Appearance: Pours a light orange/yellow color with an off-white, fluffy head which fades quickly.

Smell: Strong scent of floral hops with grapefruit. Very nice.

Taste: Not what I was expecting from a “double” IPA, as the hops were not as pungent as expected, but not in a bad way. The floral hops are more piney than in the aroma.

Mouthfeel: Sticky, crisp with a dry finish. I didn’t notice the high alcohol content until after finishing these off.

Overall: As usual, this is a tasty brew from the unplugged series. Again, not your typical double IPA, but considering the hops contained in most NG beers, I can understand the name. Will definitely recommend and drink again.

Originally drank on 4-28-2011.

Hey! I have a New Glarus beer in my glass! Thanks goes out to zimmerbloke for sending another four pack of Wisconsin's finest my way. Cheers Matt. My Duvel tulip was graced with the 12 ounce bottle.

A: Pale slightly cloudy body (obviously unfiltered), eggshell two finger soapy head, moderate lacing. I typically am automatically turned off by dark IIPA's but love the look of a light hued version. I'm gonna dock it only a half a point because the lacing could be a little better but otherwise, this is about perfect for me. 4.5/5

S: All about the hops here... The way is should be. Pungent citrus hops to be specific. Bright notes of tangerines and pineapple are discernible. A touch of spicy pine lingers in the background for some welcome contrast. Very well done. 4.5/5

T: Here's where the pine really steps forward. Specifically, bitter pine sap is the star. Juicy grapefruit juice and pith makes an appearance, as does some onion on the finish (chinook?). I'm hard pressed to pick up on the marris otter back bone. This is really just a delivery system for the hops. Big alcohol never fully manifests itself. Taste wise, I'd be hard pressed to call this anything other than a 7% PNW IPA. A big ole' hop kick to the teeth. I dig it. 4.5/5

M: The heavy dose of bittering hops really helps to destroy my palate and numb my tongue. The body itself is full and luscious with a nice dose of scrubbing bubbles. Although the finish is long and lingering, its completely due to the hops and the malt doesn't contribute to sticky finish. Again, very well done. 4.5/5

O: Apparently I like this better than most who have reviewed it. I was really quite curious how Dan Carey was going to tackle the style and was expecting a twist taking it off the beaten path. He didn't put a spin on it at all. Instead, he made a perfectly to style big IPA that fits my palate to a T. Well done Dan. It doesn't get much better than this. 4.5/5

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Brilliant gold, super sharp clarity, lasting foam. Drippy arcs of lace form as the glass is slowly sipped.

Aroma is flush with floral hoppage, pithy grapefruit, earthy mango. Dry, underscored with some fruity dankness and a slight whiff of alcohol. Somewhat reserved for a fresh Imperial IPA.

Moderate bitterness, the earthy hops build in the middle, and linger long into the aftertaste. Weedy, with a resiny earthiness of mango and apricot. Some light pale malt surfaces at room temperature. Feel is very light and dry, almost ghostly for being 9%. Personally I like a little more fullness, but it's got some fortitude nonetheless. Tangy citrus aftertaste is unmistakably Fantome somehow... well done! Plan to savor the rest of these.

Thanks Jay for this one...

poured into a Bells tulip glass.

Appearance: A brillant straw yellow body with a white fluffy head. Lots of sticky lacing.

Smell: Alot of citrus; orange, lemon, and grapefruit. Piney and grassy. Bready smell of malts in the background.

Taste: Pine, lemon, and grapefruit bitterness. Orange is also lingering around in here. Slightly Peppery and a certain spiceyness from the yeast is noted. The malts come in at the end almost in the aftertaste; great balance with all the flavors going on in this beer.

Mouthfeel: Thin and very well carbonated. Dry finish adds to the biterness and bite of this beers hops.

Overall: I am enjoying this DIPA very much. As always New Glarus brings fantastic beer at an affordable price. Balance is everything in this beer! i am glad i bought extra!

Re review due to a error

This is from 04-20-2011.

Acquired by trade, thank you mn6, I poured this into a pint glass nice and piney grapefruit taste nice yellow body. Hard to believe that this is one of the first ipas from new glarus.
So glad to try it they should make this a regular as part of there line up.

The brew evacuates the red foil topped bottle a nice golden yellowish orange with a foamy one inch head settled on top. Bubbles rise up on the sides of the glass. Aromas are awash with big citric hops..grapefruits, oranges, peaches. Hints of pine and resiny hop oils abound. A mellow sweet caramel is present..however the hops run the show..fresh and abundant. Lovely.

First sip brings a wave of lush hop flavors. Sweet citrusy grapefruit tones dance across the palate along with some pine and plenty of slick, resiny green hop oils. There's a nice sturdy caramelly malt background that ties everything in. Initially sweet...the hop bitterness hits on the way down but it's not too abrasive. An awesome Double IPA by all accounts and the best New Glarus brew I have tried thus far.

Mouthfeel has a nice slick, creamy medium body that makes this brew incredibly drinkable. Smooth, mellow carbonation, each sip leaves me begging for another. They should bottle this in 750's! A hopheads delight...I hope Dan can find a way to get this into the regular New Glarus lineup. Highly recommended.

12oz bottle split and poured into Victory snifter. No bottle date. 9% ABV.

A: This one pours a light yellow, orange. Bright white head. Good lacing.

S: This one smells malt forward. There is hop profile, but maybe the sweetness and maltiness are taking over the nose.

T: Really tasty and not heavy. Hop bite on front malt balance in middle and nice hop close.

M: Medium bodied DIPA. Totally drinkable if you can get your hands on it.

O: First beer from New Glarus and I really enjoyed it. This Unplugged series has some promise. This is an extremely drinakable DIPA with good balance, even if the nose doesn't read that way.

Just another day in Fitzwalkistan

12 oz bottle into my Duvel tulip. Pours a light, clear, pale yellow. Head recedes to thin whispy cloud cover with a small island of clump at the center.

White juicy fresh cut nectarine and light malt. Slightly one dimensional, but a good dimension considering fresh nectarines are delicious and scream childhood summers.

Fleshy nectarine pops at the start. Bitterness is kept to a minimum. Malt rounds the body towards chewy. Finish is a modest alcohol bite.

Medium bodied with a sticky finish.

Overall, a nice double but not elite. But, for a place that receives a solid variety of beer, Madison hurts for solid, fresh local IPA and double options. As such, this is a welcomed and grateful addition.

Got this treat from blackhawks87 while hanging out at DLD. Found it in the box once I got home.

A- Pours a bit hazy golden color. White head that leaves a nice thin cap on top.

S- Very wonderful aroma here. Very nice hop smells come from this. Get a nice fruit smell coming from this. Get the hints of pine and citrus but still can't get over the sweet fruit notes to it.

T- Like the nose, lots of hops here, what you would expect. The pine flavor comes through the strongest. Over powers some of the other flavors. The sweet fruit smell, doesn't come in the taste either. Citrus hops tasted in the middle. Has a nice malt character at the end that cuts into the bitterness nicely.

M- Lighter medium body. Moderate carbonation. Resin oily mouth feel.

O- Very good beer here from New Glarus. Was pretty excited to get this bottle, even more excited to actually get it home and remember drinking it. Nose was something I'd never smelled before, if the taste lived up to it, might have been a favorite DIPA.

(Original Review of Unplugged Imperial IPA)

Pours out pale gold and sits a lightly foggy golden amber in the glass with a good sized creamy off-white head. Fades slowly to a light skim, holding to the sides and leaves a good coating of lace around the glass.

Aroma is a rich melding of gooey caramel, apples, oranges and grapefruit laid down on bed of dried pine needles. Crisp and fruity with a balance of lightly toasted malt character and hints of rum cake.

Flavor is delightfully balanced, the journey starts with both malt and hops character in equal pace. Ever so lightly toasted, borderline biscuity malt character boasts caramel and some mild fruity esters on the mouth, apples, pears and nectarines mainly. Hops put out a massive whallop of pine infused citrusy flavors, ruby red grapefruit, orange, kumquat pulp, and just an added bit of spicy, green hops flavor. Alcohol warms up in the well-bittered finish, complete with a light pepperiness and much piney goodness lingering on.

Delightfully creamy and smooth in the mouth, total carbonation mellowness and silky flowing medium-full body. You could fall asleep on this cushiony body.

Very tasty IIPA, great backbone and character exceeds demand. Very well rounded, and this is fresh at that. Give it time, and the malts will come out a bit more, I'd say drink it while it's fresh because this is damn tasty. Dreadnaught fans will find this to be a familiar face.

M: med/heavy body, mild slick/oily feel

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. Pours a bright orange color with high clarity; creamy, fine-bubbled white head with nice retention and lacing. Aroma is a bit relaxed compared to the big boys, showing tangerine and grapefruit hoppiness, along with a quiet undercurrent of toasty maltiness. Medium-full body; lively carbonation; any alcohol coming through does so softly. Lots of delicious hop flavor coming through here: a vibrant orange and grapefruit and somewhat lemon hoppy core (dank, vibrant, delicious), showing plenty of assertive bitterness that doesn’t overshadow how flavorful this is; definitely seems like there’s at least a bit of Amarillo in here, with delicious orange notes coming out; a quiet, orienting toasty malt character underneath. Long-lasting, nicely bitter and toasty finish: oranges, grapefruit, solid dry end. Overall a great DIPA!

Purchased at Discount Liquor in Milwaukee after picking largadeer up at the airport. Served in a Bell's tulip. This is about three months old, but at least I know it was refrigerated the whole time.

A - Pours with a voluminous three fingers of creamy white foam that settles to a thick cap and leaves behind glass-coating lace. Faintly transparent apricot skin color.

S - A mix of crackery and lightly toasted grains, pine, tropical fruits, light chive, and ripe oranges. Still quite pungent and hoppy considering the age - impressive.

T - Taste is a bit heavier on lemon and grapefruit flavors, withe notes of floral and grassy hops, and minimal malt sweetness. There's a touch of bread and yeast in the finish, but it's quite restrained. I was quite surprised by the ABV - nothing to be found here. Bitter crops up after about 6oz, but never gets out of hand.

M - Super dry, with crisp medium-high carbonation, and extremely resinous residuals. Sufficiently hefty, juicy, medium-full body.

D - I haven't been able to get up to WI in a while, and I was worried this would be a malty mess by the time I got to try it. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Why can't more breweries make hoppy beers that will maintain quality as long as this? The alcohol is sneaky, but I'd gladly drink a few bottles of this one in an evening.

Thanks to kbutler1 for this one!

Poured into snifter.

Pours a finger of white head that settles to a thick ring. Leaves some thin lace rings along the way. Color is a clear bright golden yellow.

Aroma: Kind of fruity, but it has a big onion flavor. Grassy with some pine notes. A touch of alcohol shows. I get some mandarin flavors.

Taste: Not as hoppy as I was expecting. It has a bready malt profile. Grassy and piney. Onion flavors again. Not overly fruity either.

Taste: Bitter, but not that bitter. The bitterness lingers in the aftertaste, but that's it. Medium bodied, medium carbonation.

Overall, it was a decent IIPA, but nothing too crazy. Pretty malty, not that bitter, and not that fruity. Enjoyable though.

Originally reviewed a couple months ago, had to re-enter. 12oz to snifter, thanks to knelson for this. Always interested in trying new (and old) New Glarus.

Mostly clear golden orange, lots of carbonation bubbles. Super creamy white head retains at a half finger easily, leaves lacing here and there.

Very earthy hop scent, has a danky vibe and some grapefruit. Lemon and a hint of onion as it warms.

Grapefruit and lemon peel are strongest for the taste, but earthiness is still prevalent. Some floral hops and citrus there too. There's a big malt backbone but it's hard to find a flavor for it, light caramel would be a close guess I think.

Full creamy mouthfeel, feels oily at times. Carbonation is a bit high and spiky for my tastes. Quite malty but feels more bitter on the finish.

A good DIPA. I do wish the malts were toned down though, they don't bring much flavor and are a bit big. I'd gladly have it again.

reviewed 26 April 2011 - moved here from "Unplugged IIPA"

Bright light orange color with light white head and modest lacing.

Inviting citrus aroma with a little toffee/biscuit in the background. Well balanced, smooth and somewhat restained flavor for a dipa. Not a real big monster like some imperials - very drinkable. Juicy bitter orange with a moderate bitter finish well balanced with caramel. The sweetness is obvious but not out of line for the body and other flavors.

Medium body with a fizzy, somewhat harsh carbonation. Overall a well made dipa, well worth checking out.

12oz bottle courtesy of RichKrull (thanks Rich!). Like most New Glarus beers this was very well done. I haven't had a bad Unplugged series beer yet.

This poured a hazy orange-tinged copper with a HUGE head, it took a few slow pours to get everything into a pint glass with no foam spill-over. It smells perfectly citrus, grapefruit and lemon rind, some sweet resin, excellent.

Big hops flavors in the taste too, New Glarus nails another style. The malts play back-up here, letting the hops take over with massive citrus and tropical fruits up front. Lingering hops bite in the aftertaste but not all that strongly bitter.

Apparently I need to move my review from Unplugged Imperial IPA to here...

Thanks to Mike for sending this one my way.

A: The beer pours a bright golden orange color with a fluffy white head.

S: A nice citrus aroma to the beer with lots of grapefruit and lemon peel. A mild pine note as well as some floral character. A hint of caramel malt and bread is also present.

T: Big time lemon peel and perhaps even some lemon flesh. A lot of grapefruit is present as well as some grass and pine. Mild bread and malt flavor with a decent bitterness on the back end.

M: The body and carbonation are both medium.

O: This was quite a nice Double IPA. Really crisp and refreshing.

burnt amber with a big off white head and a nice bit of lace that flowed down the glass. The smell was dominatd y alcohol, as was the taste. Once it warmed some decent hints of citrus hops were brought forward and could finally be smelled. Lots of hop presence and a nice sweetness that tried to balance it out.The taste was smooth, albeit overpowering with the strong alcohol flavors. Overall this was a good brew, however I think this may be one that was so brought up on ABV that really didnt need to be, and that brings down the drinkibility a bit.

Got a 4 pack via trade with MammothBrew.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

A: A light orange with gold tones and a two finger white head. Nice glass lacing.

S: Wow, hops baby. Citrus hops with some notes of pine, biscuit sweetness and some slight alcohol.

T: The hops on this beer are perfect. Grapefruit, mango, tangerine, huge pineapple and slight pine gets mixed with the bready, biscuit sweetness. Each balances out each other. Finish turns a bit bitter but stays smoothed out by the sweetness. This is the perfect balance of hops and malt for a DIPA. Actually slightly dry on the finish too.

M: Creamy to start, dry on the finish with some bitterness. Alcohol is barely tasted, but is there. Very well hidden for 9%.

O: A perfectly balanced DIPA that other brewers should take note of. Not pound you in the face wth hops, but there in full force to offset the malt. As I said before, great balanced DIPA.

This was one terrific DIPA and I was pleasantly surprised. I am just tasting these NG beers for the first time and this was was an absolute hit. I have 3 more to enjoy, and you can bet I will enjoy every sip of them. Great beer.

A - The body of this brew is a cloudy dark yellow in color. A fairly aggressive swirl in the bottle, followed by a pour into my pint glass, produced a beautiful two finger white foamy head. Better than average head retention and spotty lacing...not bad for a beer with 9% ABV.

S - Hoptastic! Big time citric hop aroma, with some pineapple and grapefruit playfully joining in. This is a definitely delicious smelling beer!

T & M - The aroma matched the taste almost spot on. Pineapple and grapefruit lead the way with a decent dose of hop bitterness from the middle to the end, letting you know this is a IIPA. There is a bit of alcohol warmth after the swallow, just enough to let you know it's there. Medium bodied, and it seems to have a drying finish.

D - Very nice! New Glarus has crafted a fine IIPA here, if you like hops you'll love this beer. Very well done, something I would recommend to any of my friends!

Bottle poured into tulip glass

Pours a semi cloudy apricot color with a good sized off white head.

Smell is dominated by a heavy citrus scent

This is not the hop bomb it appears to be from the smell. Taste is a mix of the citrus hops with some of the piney flavor as well.

A great IIPA, not totally what I expected but then again New Glarus never seems to be just an average especially in this series.

Thanks to Matt (mtunnell) for this one. Poured from a 12oz. bottle into Lost Abbey stemware.

A: Standard pour produces a 2 finger frothy white head with very good retention. Beer is a clear deep yellow. Lacing is patchy and spotty with great cling. A perfect looking brew all the way around.

S: Nose is very aromatic. Citrus, peach, pineapple, cane sugar, and other tropical fruits. A bit of resiny hop bitterness in their also. Appropriate and impressive for its style.

T: Opens very light. Pine, grass, and resin hop bitterness mixed with a citrus and pineapple malt backbone. Good balance. More fruitiness towards the middle and end with the hops fading out rather quickly. A balanced ipa that leans more towards east coast. Finish is cane sugar and citrus sweetness with some citrus hop bitterness sprinkled in. Piney and bitter aftertaste. Very enjoyable.

M: Light bodied and highly carbonated. Prickly and lively in the mouth and abrasive and tingling going down. Finish is slighty dry and messy with a lingering aftertaste. Exactly what I'd expect from a IIPA. Great lively body to cover the high ABV and accentuate the flavor.

O: This is a very impressive offering from New Glarus although those who enjoy more hop forward IPAs may not favor it as much. Definitely worth a try as its one of the 5 or 6 best that I've had in the style.

Thanks to Ryan for this one!

12oz bottle, approx 3 months old. Served at around 45F.

Pours hazy gold with a three finger white head that leaves some foamy rings of lacing and holds a nice creamy cap.

Aroma is tons of pineapple, lemon, tropical fruits, some grapefruit and orange, a little bit dank, some bready malt as well but the hops are the star of the show. Great strength and complexity.

Flavor is some seriously authentic grapefruit juice, pineapple, lemon, tropical fruits, a hint of pine, some caramel and bready malt show up in the middle offering a bit of sweetness, finishes with very nice lingering bitterness and some alcohol bite.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a bit sticky and oily, medium carbonation.

An incredible DIPA. Love it! Very hop forward with just enough malt to offer some balance but not so much as to detract from the hops. Love the really citrusy & fruity DIPAs and this one nails it. Delicious!
