Imperial IPA very well done beer. Gotta try it if you haven't, must remember it if you have.

Exceptional IPA, indeed sets the standard. Hoppy goodness flowing throughout bottle and the citrus crushes any alcohol taste. Definitely wanted more as soon as I was done.

Awesome beer! Maybe not the greatest I have ever had... but it is in the top 10. I think there might be a little over-hype going on... but it is an amazing beer!

It smells amazing! I wish it tasted a little closer to how it smells!
