On tap in Sisters Oregon.
The body is deep amber; good clarity with a very good white head.
Piney-hoppy aroma.
Medium body with medium carbonation.
Moderately bitter; more in the aftertaste. Too bitter overall.

Clear deep gold with two fingers of long lasting cream colored head. Plenty of lace.
Smell is crushed wild strawberries. Some bready malt as well.
Taste is hop oil resins with tangerine and mango. Plenty of sweet bready malts to smooth out the hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to full with plenty of carbonation. It has a long lasting resinous semi dry bitter finish. Overall I really liked this beer. I think it was quite fresh as it is fairly new to the store. It was a decent buy also from a convenience store. It cost about $4.69 for the bomber. I did note the alcohol slightly in the taste. It wasn't off putting but it was my first beer today so a 8.5% abv is noticed. I have been tasting this for about 15 minutes and it still has a cap of head and leaving an almost solid sheet of lace. I would definitely buy this again and hope to find it in the canned version.

22 picked up last week at Brewer's Haven in Boise... Poured tonight into my GT 25th tulip... slightly hazed darker golden... decent enough white head with an okay cap... middle of the road lacing.

The nose is pretty well done.. good citrus and tropical fruit notes... a bit of a floral essence with warmth... smells like it is going to have a thicker malt presence.

Flavor is okay too... I like my DIPA's drier with significantly less pale maltiness... I think it mutes the bitterness AND the hop flavors and I think I am certainly right in this case... hop flavors show as a sorta tangerine zest that blooms with the malts, but is still not focused enough.

Body is a touch thick for an 8.5% DIPA.

Despite all my above "negatives", this is a good beer.

Poured from a 22oz bottle, 8.5% ABV 85 IBU bottle says they use 8 varieties of hops.
L: Pour a copper amber thin head some spotty lacing.
S: Some hops there not a big nose.
T: Hop bitterness is there but somewhat weak for a Imperial.
F:Good mouth feel hops and malt work.
O: Lacking the hop hit and citrus hit for me more like a British IPA in my opinion.

22oz bomber from Fred Meyer in North Salem. $4.99 Pours a clear darker golden colour with a good sized creamy,thick white head. The aroma is seriously AWOL on this bottle some resiny/floral hops and a slight smell of raw alcohol. not great to be honest. The taste is well balanced ( too well for IIPA)..the hops are definitely there but are almost sweet and compliment the substantial malts. Its nice but for SEVEN varieties of hop this is strangely a malty beer.( im judging out of style because i do like the flavor). Mouth feel is OK i suppose but it does get a trifle sticky in the end..and despite the nose the alcohol is hidden! I liked the beer but a poor rendition of an Imperial IPA.

22oz bottle. Pours a semi translucent amber color with a half inch of head. Some lacing. The aroma is grapefruit, sweet citrus and some toasted malts. The taste is light citrus and tropical fruit notes with a fair amount of toasted malts. Grapefruit and mango towards the end. Pine hop notes. Good malt backbone and pretty balanced. Somewhat boozey. A bit oily and medium bodied. Overall, pretty good Imperial.
