New offering from Troegs, pours a light golden color, nice head to it. Great hoppy aroma. Taste is light to medium bodied, great mouthfeel. Nice crispness and balance to this one, a hop bomb for sure but also has a nice 'wet' finish and doesn't have the typical bitter dryness most IPAs have. Finishes clean and smooth. A very good IPA and is un the upper echelon of this style that is widely available out there. Highly recommended, will be getting a few more 6 packs of this while I can.

Yellow appearance, white head, 3/4" in depth. Found it to be a lot lighter in color than most ipa's much less 7.5% ones. Aroma, hmm. Where's the hops? Never a good sign when you're drinking an ipa and can't smell it. Do they do bottle dating? I couldn't find one on my bottle, so who knows, I've had good Troegs beers, so maybe this isn't their fault, but its not my fault I can't find a bottle date, so the review is what it is. Citra hops are allegedly in here? Could have fooled me, they are dainty hops in terms of longevity, so my theory grows. . .

Taste, rampant bitterness, you can definitely tell some high alpha acid hops were used, and not a lot of malt (from both the color of the beer, as well as the massive bitterness, lack of caramel, body etc. . . ). Unfortunately, they impart virtually nil in terms of mouthfeel of the hop. Carbonation is high, alcohol is mildly stinging like an antiseptic. The bitterness just doesn't have any flavor to it, nothing in terms of pine, tropical or citrus fruit. Its kind of bland. Reminiscient of double take ipa, all bitterness, no substance. I'd try it again based on the fact that I know Troeg's is much better than this in every other effort I've had from them.

Great Imperial IPA. Was very please to add it to the mix. Impressive array of hops used in the multiple stages of brewing. Great burst up front and plenty of hop on the back end. Definitely a choice for hop heads. Dem Hershey boys are doin' it again!!!

12 oz fresh bottle poured into a tulip glass. Half finger of fluffy white head over a bronze body with high clarity. Decent retention and lacing.

Sweet, piney aroma, with a touch of pineapple citrus.

Piney bitterness backed by a light sweetness and grainy alcohol. Very crisp and clean, with a somewhat dry finish to balance out the sweetness. The mouthfeel is a little on the lighter side, but so is the flavor profile, so it works in this case.

This is a good example of a crisp, refreshing double IPA. Drinkable, tasty and totally "sessionable", amiright?
