Notes / Commercial Description:
Our newest year-round is an Imperial India Pale Ale brewed with high-quality pilsner malt and flaked oats, making this beer light in color but certainly not in body or alcohol content.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

look: bright pine sap with a decent head and retention

smell: very nice aromas after a vigorous swirl...seamless hoppy-malty balance (which repeats in the taste)...the aroma is deep, soothing, intense

taste/feel: the taste repeats the smell even deeper...nice to have a DImPeriAl come across so balanced, hides the ABV, no cloying sweetness...

overall: this ranks up there with a fresh Avery Raja...it's a refreshing, easy to drink (please sip tho!) brew...glad my local distributor (Rocko's/Media, PA) is constantly bringing in new stuff!

Poured from a week old growler into an IPA glass. Looks like cloudy grapefruit juice with a great foamy white head. It smells tropical and sweet. The taste is amazing. Sweet and fruity. The mouthfeel is perfect with some stickyness on the lips. Killer lacing. The lack of bitterness and the way it hides the alcohol makes this one of the best IPAs I have ever enjoyed.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Hazy golden pour with thick frothy white head. Great sticky lacing.

S: Dank and citrusy. Grapefruit... mild tropicals and cracked grains.

T/F: Cracked grains... light malts form the backbone with a strong bitter juicy hop profile. Grapefruit, papaya, and mango. Fruity.. mild sweetness followed by strong bitterness. Dank... delicious... and well balanced. Smooth on the mouth, likely the oats. Well carbonated.

O: A delicious NEIPA. Big dank tropical hops and grapefruit/citrus. Easy drinking... fantastic beer.

12oz can received through the generosity of beerloserLI. My 1st of this beer, this brewery and the state it's brewed in. Canned on February 23, 2018,

Poured into a shaker pint glass, this was a hazy, honey-orange, with an inch of bone-white foam. Lots of sticky lace left behind.

Very fruity, juicy hop nose, with a little bit of bitter citrus rind to balance out the sweetness.

Fruit forward, like in the nose. Mango and papaya flavors, backed with a grapefruity, rindy bitterness that is bracingly dry. This dryness is subordinate only until the finish, at which point it takes the wheel.

Well carbonated, with a thin, crisp, yet slightly resiny mouthfeel.

I quite liked this beer. It's more complex than the typical NE IPA
with a great sweet/bitter contrast. It's relative lightness makes the fact that it's an 8.5% DIPA not very apparent. I'm quite happy two were included. Thanks, Brian!

I'm trying this at Craft Burgers and Beer in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. It poured a hazy orangish with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had the east coast hop flare nice citrus peel presence. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with bitter citrus presence. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a fantastic beer.

pours a hazy glowing gold with a creamy head, looks amazing

smell is sweet yet thin with some straw to it. fruit yet straw which is from Pils malt

taste is bitter and full of fruit, lots of papaya and mango in this. well carbonated and not a creamy type of IPA. the Pils malt comes through, the body is thin which makes for a light dIPA but it leaves a lingering aftertaste I don't love.

personally i don't like pils malt in my IPAs. not bad but i wouldn't get this again
