From the 650 ml. bottle dated April 7, 2014. Sampled on May 26, 2014.

The pour is a slight hazy copper orange amber with a long lasting white foamy head that lingers on.

The aroma has a decent dose of floral and piney hops that emit a grapefruit-like character. The toasted malts figure into the aroma a little bit too.

The body is around medium and fairly smooth.

The taste has plenty of resiny hops on my tongue but not to the point of exploding in my face. Malt character can also be tasted. This is a well-balanced Imperial IPA that still emphasizes the hops with a dry bitter finale.

I look at the ratings of this beer and I'm very surprised. I think this beer is exceptional. Drank a month out from bottling and in MA, so maybe I'm benefiting from the freshness. The beer smells and tastes awesome. Very good carbonation, with lots of citrus up front and a sweet aftertaste. Really good brew.

This beers smells amazing. Taste isn't quite as good as it smells but still very good. Would be a higher rating but it just kept foaming out of the bottle. I didn't drop it or anything so weird. Could only take 2-3 sips, all I was getting was foam. Decent tasting foam though.

Slightly hazed, orangey apricot with a light beige head that slowly recedes. Low aroma of floral hops, a little perfumey.

Flavor of toffee malt upfront, followed by grapefruit citrus hops, tastes like centennial. Morphs quickly to pine, and bitter orange rind. Fairly bitter, but this tastes like a single IPA, not a double IPA. Not overly complex, thin mouthfeel, this is just above average overall.

Golden copper color, average sized white foam, dissipates pretty quick, plenty of left over lace.
Very sweet honey like malt, sweet tropical fruity hops aroma mostly.
The flavor showcases a big, ripe tropical fruity hop taste, fat grain bill with plenty of malt backbone. In fact, the malt is present, rides right aling side some pretty big fruity hops. Citrus and slightly sour notes ride in later on with a big, dry, bitter finish.
Feel is a medium body, sharp, crisp and dry effect to finish.
Earthy undertones, grainy but a decent balance of malt/hops makes this seem like a big English style IPA.

Bought a bottle at the Beer Shop in East Longmeadow. The beer pours with a murky orange appearance, a thin ring around the glass, and really nice lacing on the sides. Aromas include some light pine hops mixed with grapefruit and mango. Taste generally follows the nose with some bitter citrus wrapped around some earthy hops. Mouthfeel is good with a crisp carbonation. Overall, I liked how this beer looked and felt.
