3.9/5 rDev +11.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from 16oz can into a pint glass. The can says this is 6.9% ABV, rather than the above-noted 8%.
Appearance: rich orange hue with a moderate haze and a good effervescence. Head is two fingers of frothy ivory foam with a bit of an orange cast. Nice!
Smell: mild malty aroma hits me first, followed by some spicy, earthy hops. I like the composition, but the intensity is rather weak.
Taste: very malty character hits me right up front, kind of like a Scottish wee heavy. This is followed by a mellow but tasty combination of citrusy and floral hops. Bitterness comes on slow but is exceedingly smooth. This is not like any other beer I've had which calls itself an Imperial IPA. That said, I rather like it.
Mouthfeel: medium-thick body with a good level of carbonation and a creamy, silky mouthfeel. Great!
Overall: I actually quite like this beer, despite its not fitting into the style terribly well (although I don't know how else it might be classified). I'd definitely have it again.

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.

3.13/5 rDev -10.6%
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 Mjonir poured a dark amber orange color with a 2 finger foam head that dissipated fairly quick. It left some good wave sea foam lacing on the sides of the glass. It was purchased for me yesterday and I am drinking it a day later.
The aroma was soft pine and the taste had a solid bitterness up front with the strong malt backbone. On the finish it left the tongue bittered up. Very pleasing. The maltiness was due to the Munich malts. Overall a good local example of a double ipa. It had a 100 ibu's but was not abrasive at all.
Serving type: growler
