they took their substantial imperial ipa and added some fresh tasting tangerine to it, a nice addition, and really a very compatible fruit choice for these hops, which already exude strong citrus fruit characteristics on their own, bitter orange peel and like an essential oil of it or something too, quite intense, but the fruit addition gives it a little sweetness, more juiciness, and keeps the bitterness and greenness from running away with this. i can still get some of the vegetal actual pellet taste here, and this isnt as well refined as i remember the original being, its almost overly hoppy, harsh from them in the finish even without absurd bitterness levels, and it is a slow drinker by any standard. the alcohol isnt over the top, but the hop intensity is, this could use a little clearing up and scaling back in some areas, but i remain attracted to the relationship between this hop profile and the tangerine. mosaic or even galaxy or something in here, tropical fruity, pineapple from the can, i wonder which hops are all in here. this is definitely a bold beer, one and done for me because of its hugeness, but they are on to something with this mix of flavors. this might actually work better as a single ipa...
