nother 16 oz can from "Lifesource" Salem $2.49 Burnt orange. slightly hazy body small thick off white head. Aroma is OK but not as strong as expected sweet,floral and resiny hop clash. Some nuts in their too . maybe WOAH strange strange taste for an IIPA..sweet,bready,resiny hop bitterness in the end but its not of epic proportions..not an IIPA. OK the mouthfeel is fine enough..OK THis is strange stuff..its not horrible but it is not an IIPA hell for me its not even an IPA more a stronger APA.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Poured a burnt orange color with good carbonation and a nice white cap

S: Pine and caramel

T: Taste had a big hop bite initially. Left some fruitiness and caramel. This beer seemed to be all over the place and not really balanced. The hops were a bit weak for an Imperial. Malts are pretty weak

M: Not a enjoyable or impressive IIPA. Medium body

O: Average at best

Serving type: on-tap

The legendary woodychandler comes through with this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has an orange/golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very hoppy, some pine. Taste is hoppy, biter, some fruits, a bit of pine, a little subdued compared to the smell. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

3.28/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a pint can into a pint glass. Reviewed live.

A- Three fingers of moderate retention white head. Soapy lacing. Light amber body. Average.

S- Heavy citrus, grapefruit. Also pine-scented. Light and crisp.

T- Piney, sweet and fruity. Not overpowering, but the hop oil lingers on the palate.

M- Medium bodied and surprisingly creamy for a DIPA. Not bad.

O- Slightly above average. The hop oil makes it not very accessible, but it is not overpowering.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Cloudy amber with two fingers of cream white head. Good amount of lacing.
Some pine resin in the smell a touch of grain as well.
Taste is bitter pine resin some grapefruit and a very pedestrian malt presence. Bitterness takes the lead with just a hint of malts.
Mouthfeel is alright but a bit more carbonation would be better. Semi dry finish.
Overall more like an IPA with a bit more malt than typical.

3.45/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A lighter amber, more of an orange golden color in the big chalice. Rather light bodied. Quite a nice hoppy aroma. Flowers and spice.

Some bitterness right off, with a slightly dank and resinous hop flavor. Some sweet malt with biscuits. Fairly rich and the alcohol doesn't come through strongly in the taste, at least.

A little earthy and sharp at the same time. Pretty much the classic DIPA flavor profile, though more restrained in the hop attack. Quite drinkable. The bitterness seems to moderate, and the fruity and malty flavors have a chance to give this more complexity.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

can into an imperial pint glass

copper color, kind of hazy. fair tan head with great lacing

smell is strong as soon as the can is cracked. pine, grass, hops, malt and maybe a little chocolate

because of the smell, I expected a lot more flavor from this one. it's not bad, just not as loud as the smell. i thought that it would be extremely bitter, but it was quite smooth. that's not a bad thing, just not what I expected from an 'imperial'

mouthfeel is smooth and easy to drink.

overall, easy to drink with a really good smell, but not as much flavor as I expected.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Cool design on the can, gotta be a tough one, yeah?
Looks great in the glass. Deep gold, some copper colors. Big foaming white head, rocky in the middle. Great lacing.

Aroma is hops. Pine, herbals, some citrus. A bit of booze. Malt in the background with caramel and sweet bread

Taste is fine, nothing outstanding. Caramel and booze don't blend well as it gives the illusion (I guess) of metallic. This boozy caramel is sharpened more by the strong hops, which are piney and earthy. Citrus fades in the taste. Caramel reappears in the end briefly before the hops finish it off.

Carbonation is lacking. Seems flat and the only zip is from the hops. Would like some bubbles to lift the syrupy-ness off

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A _ Pours an amber-gold-ish hue w/a thick, creamy off-white head. Excellent head retention.

S - Smell is of strong pine, with mild caramel and citrus notes.

T - Taste is not nearly as hoppy as the smell would indicate. Actually a quite balanced, extremely smooth beer. Velvety caramel malts, balanced w/pine and grapefruit. Pretty basic for a DIPA, but it works.

M - Mouthfeel is medium bodied, w/light carbonation, and super smooth feel overall. Easy to drink for the ABV.

O - Overall, a pretty solid, but not knockout beer. Those looking for super bitter hoppiness, keep looking. Otherwise, worth a try if you spot it.
