2.9/5  rDev -15.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Poured into a snifter from a 16 oz can.

Color was a light copper color with a two finger white head.

Aroma was caramel and orange creamsicle.

Taste is caramel and orange creamsicle with some pine hops.

Feel is on the flat side, almost like it is on nitro, could use some more carbonation to balance the sweetness.

Overall, it is too sweet for my palate and lacking any real hop characteristic I would expect from a DIPA.

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

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pint can poured into a pint glass. 134 is printed on the bottom, whatever that means.

Pours hazy golden with a nice white head, slow dissipation, medium carbonation. Smell is hay and old hop aroma (wish I could interpret 134), very slight floral note.

Taste is lots more hay and old hops, a little pine, very slight honey.

Mouthfeel is medium. Overall, it's OK.

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.

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.
