Big, fruity, sweet, hazy, hoppy goodness. I can’t do IIPAs too often and they’re not my main thing, but this is a distinct offering and one that any hop lover should try out.

Clear golden pour into a tulip. Tropical nose with a slight dankness. Finishes with amazing malt notes. Slightly sweet for the 9.9% abv upon taste. Hides the alcohol well. Love the mouthfeel. Not cloying. Amazing beer!

12oz draft pour at Falling Rock in Denver, reviewed live.


The beer pours a bright amber, light copper color, very clear with two fingers of white head, excellent lacing and good retention. The aroma is fantastic, tons of grapefruit peel, dank grassiness and pine, earthy but still bright and pungent with light fruitiness and sticky malt. The flavors echo the nose so well, juicy and bitter grapefruit, nice earthy rind that brings out the dank weed flavors, grassy and floral with some soft fruit flavors and hearty caramel and cereal grains. The mouthfeel is great, heavy medium body, coating and creamy with a sticky and dry finish.

Verdict: An awesome DIPA from Melvin, the alcohol is beautifully hidden, so drinkable for nearly 10%. The balance is excellent but so hop forward and pungent. Excellent beer.

Poured into a 12 snifter glass via draft
Dark yellow brown in color and smell is strong hop presence, which is off to a great start for an imperial IPA
Taste is all hops and plenty of malt, more than i was expecting..which made this faily sweet
For a 9.5% beer the ABV is pretty well hidden which is always dangerous..i liked this quite a bit and hope to try more from this brewery soon
