Review from notes taken while I enjoyed a pint on tap at La Cave Du Vin September 9th, 2012. I do not recall the price.

A Creamy head over a translucent light copper body. Once again, deifficult with low light at La Cave. 3.5

S Floral hops and little else. A little bit “one note” for me. 3.0

T Solid IPA taste. Bitter hops which are not very balanced. The bitterness lingers on the back of my tongue for a while. Hop heads rejoice! 3.0

M Moderate feel with bitter hops. 3.5

D/O Drinkability is only fair. Overall this is a fair beer from Troegs, home of some of my all time favorite beers including Troegs Pale Ale which I would drink readily before this one. 3.0

Picked this up at DecCicco's in Brewster, NY. An amazingly clear yellow amber color with a very solid white head that deflates to a full but thin cover and a robust web of lacing. The aroma brings a mild citrus bread straw grass deal. A bit too mild to me but not unpleasant. The flavor brings a somewhat harsh grass hop with a nice grainy caramel bread. There’s a hint of alcohol but the grassy grain bite is the dominant theme. It offers a very liquid medium body that feels a bit glassy with very adequate carbonation. I detected a vague sulphur that wasn’t a bad thing. Toasted grains and lots of tongue grabbing hop bitterness. I like it plenty! Refreshing and a palate pleaser.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

The pour was a golden straw orange with an average (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that was mostly lasting, finally reducing to a few puddles and a medium collar with some excellent sticky spotty lacing.

The aroma was of floral and citrus hops, grain malts and a sweet yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit) and a quite noticeable sweet fruity ester.

The taste was a little bitter-sweet with a hint of caramel and had a mild fruitiness from the onset, and then became quite a bit bitterer and nice and hoppy with a definite citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted a very long time proceeding the swallow with a hoppy bitter taste that was left to linger for quite a while longer.

Mouthfeel was a few shades beyond light in body and was dry in texture with a moderate carbonation.

Overall an extremely well balanced IPA, slightly fruity at the start and pleasurably bitter towards the end with a great drinkability...

A: The beer is slightly hazy straw yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. There are some fine particles visible floating in suspension. It poured with a finger high dense white head that has excellent retention properties, consistently leaving a half finger high head covering the surface as well as lots of lacy rings of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of citrus hops in the nose.
T: The taste is somewhat more complex than the smell, having flavors of both citrusy and spicy hops along with a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. The finish leaves your mouth relatively dry.
O: This IPA is packed with hop aromas and flavors but is rather well balanced and quite easy to drink. No traces of alcohol are perceptible in the taste.

Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.

Pours a cloudy, pale golden orange color with yellowish colored edges and a two finger, frothy white head. Good retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap-ring.  Large streaks of soapy lacing left behind.

Über fresh, dank hop aroma with strong resinous and floral notes countered by a boat load of citrus and tropical fruit.  Subtle pale malt presence with some bread and biscuit.  There's also a pine needle character along with prominent pineapple, mango and grapefruit.

On the lighter end of medium bodied with a nice balance of dry, earthy bitterness and sweet tropical/citrus fruit notes.  Dry grassy pine  notes followed by a strong tropical and citrus fruit presence.  Lots of pineapple, grapefruit and lemon peel flavor countered by a pale malt backbone.  Really well balanced and easy to drink.

Missed out on this last year when it was new and kinda hyped, got to have it a few times this summer though. Reviewed from a pretty fresh batch, bottled on date is 8-6-12. Described as an imperial pale ale on the neck label.

Pours a pale orange, full clarity, big white head. Head retains very well as a solid half finger with some spots of lace left.

Scent is somewhat faint but opens up a bit more with warmth. Reveals some light fruit, floral+spicy hops, along with some pale, bready and sweet malts.

Taste brings an interesting combo of fop flavors, I'd say grapefruit pith and earthy resin stick out the most, some floral and spicy hops too. A bit more bitter/less malt than the scent it seems, but some bready malts definitely there along with some sweeter buttery tones.

Good mouthfeel, lowish carbonation, good amount of bitterness and malt presence. Some alcohol noticeable, medium drinkability.

Overall quite a unique and tasty brew. I think the imperial pale ale label is important because though this has some big hops it felt different than many IPAs. Worth a 6-pack purchase.

Pours a gorgeous clear golden-orange under a rocky, soft-peak egg-white head that leaves a solid wall of lacing down the side of the glass.

Nose is pleasant - honey, grapefruit, sourdough bread, apricot, orange peal, clover and honeysuckle.

Taste confirms nose.

Substantial - thick and oily in the mouth with low to medium carbonation that struggles to clear the palate.

One of the better potent IPAs I've had. Seductive and sadistic.
