I liked this beer. It's not in my top 10 DIPA's, but very drinkable. Hides the alcohol very well. I thought the aftertaste was the best part of the beer. It reminded me A LOT of Hop Drop and Roll. For the price, great beer!

Strong and very hoppy. However kinda has a weird after taste to it. It is not a bad doble IPA for the price you pay. But at the same time certainly not as good as some other doble/imperial IPAs.

I really like this beer. However, if I were drinking it blindly I would never guess American Imperial IPA. One of the more malty IPAs that I have had. While I would not consider this to be sweet, it certainly does not reach the levels of bitterness that are common with the style. Taste is caramel, toffee, light citrus, and candied fruits. The bitterness comes with some dryness at the end. A beer I will likely revisit, but probably not one I would reach for if I want what I typically associate with the style.
