This American IPA pours a bright yet slightly hazy golden color, almost no head, surprising as it is full of carbonation. The scent is full of floral notes, has significant hops in the nose as well. Taste is a bright clear and crisp hoppy taste, bitter and dry, even finish. The one drawback is a bit too much carbonation, but its a tasty beer. Troegs does it well.

A - Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down slowly leaving behind some lace.

S - The aroma is full of tropical fruit hops with pineapple and grapefruit and just a bit of pine hops as well. There is just a touch of sweetness as well.

T - Starts off with lots of tropical hop flavors with lots of pineapple and some good bitterness. There is also just a touch of grassy hop as well. Through the middle, lots of orange zest comes through alongside some more pine flavors. The finish is a mix of pineapple, orange, bitterness, and just a bit of pine.

M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a resiny and bitter dry finish.

D - Very drinkable. Really nice tropical hop profile with some great bitterness. There is not too much malt coming through.

I really don't know what happenend to my previous review on this? Or maybe I didn't yet... oh well.

Deep golden in color, slightly hazy. Nice two finger bright white heading. Good lacing around the edges and a cap that seems to stick around until the end.

Very pungent aroma of tropical fruit. Citrus zestiness, with a nice floral aroma. A hopheads dream IMO.

This is were it fell off for me. A big nose like that and not a big folllowing. Good orange-peel rind, heavy rush of citrus lemoniness but really no malt backbone to stand up to it. It just falls a little short for me.

Solid medium body, with excellent carbonation. A little on the lighter side in terms of balance.

A little bit of a let down after so much talk about Troegs releasing an IPA.

I poured this from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass, it has a nice golden color body with a nice 2" white head that slowley layed down to a thin lace around the top of the body. The smell is of piney and some citrus hop come through. The nice taste of pine, and the bitterness of the hops hits the tastes bud pretty well. Some malt comes through on the back but not too much. This has a nice dry finish and overall is a really good IPA. Great job troegs.

Poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: Yellow golden straw. With a lot of head, about two fingers that fell slow to very nice lace.

Smell: Citrus, grass, pine and hidden alcohol. Slightly bitter hops just what an Imperial PA should smell like.

Taste: Lemony citrus fruit followed by a nice amount of sweet malt and spicy hop bitterness. Nice dry finish.

Mouth: Medium body, with just a little carbonation. Very soft feeling on the tongue. A little more fizz would be nice, pour slow to keep from losing to much to the head.

Overall: A very good Imperial PA. Just what you want in an IPA. Great job Troegs. I should have tried this one a long time ago. Put this one on your list.

Cheers.

3.58/5  rDev -12.7%

from 22oz, part of blind bif 6, thanks to hophead101

A: almost crystal clear straw yellow, one finge rof foamy head that is slow to fade. 4

S: floral and fruity hops, lemon, tangerine, peach, citrus, lavender, a bit of pine as it warms up. i love the smell but wish it were more robust and in-your-face. a second pour after letting it warm doesn't bring out any more than the original. Sigh. it could have been a five. 4

T: hop bitterness to start, grapefruit and pine, deep bitterness that barely subsides to slightly bready malt. lingering hops on the tongue but not much else. 3.5

M: light bodied, the smallest amount of slickness on the tongue, finely carbed, almost to the point of astringent. 3

O: decent ipa, but also a bit one dimensional. I would have preferred stronger aromas to match the bitter-heavy taste. 3.5
