On tap at a Double Tree hotel bar in Aurora, CO. Sampled Aug 6, 2017.

Slightly hazy golden yellow under a lasting and lacing white head.

The aroma is mainly floral and pine with a subdued breaded malt note.

The body has a mild acidity to it but it's light to medium.

The taste has a boisterous pine and floral bitterness just as the aroma suggests. Also a kind of tobacco character. Lingers on the finish.

An amazingly sweet beer. It isn't overpowering but it's a very different take on an imperial ipa than I'm used to. It is a welcomed departure and I hope to find more of it back home.

Nice aromas of mangoes/tropical fruit. It is quite balanced and holds up to its 9% quite well. Tasty without being too boozy or thick and surropy.

22 oz. Bomber

Pours a pretty nice slightly cloudy dark golden yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a nice creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is pretty nice, hoppy, with some maltyness, citrusy (grapefruit), some pine notes. The taste is very nice hoppy, malty (sweet), grapefruit, some pine notes. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

A mixture of yellow and light orange yielded an impressive full inch of head on the beer. Retention subpar, lacing above average.

Aroma was good on the hops, not great. Leaned citrus.

Taste was an easy drinking dipa offering up more than just bitterness. Warming alcohol, but not distracting or challenging. Hop flavors evolving from just citrus. Malt body and yeast is almost burton-esque.

Has a bold flavor but I'm having little trouble getting behind this one. It's a little cloudy ( as everything I've ever had from them is ) it's balanced but nothing really defines it's self. Other than that when poured it gives a couple inches of head and leaves little lacing.
