4.8/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a hazy sunset orange color with a finger of a white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice ring of lacing. Smells of tons of dank, juicy, tropical fruits. Lots of pineapple, mango, papaya, lemons, grapefruit, and tangerines. Not much malt detected at all except for some carmel sweetness. Taste starts with a burst of dank tropical fruits like mango, pineapple, and papaya. Then the middle brings a carmel sweetness, along with more juicy tropical fruits, some lemons, and some grapefruit. The finish is great. More of the same flavors mentioned before, along with spicy rye notes, and some resinous qualities from the citra hops. Tons of dankness. The sweet, juicy tropical fruits blend nicely with the spiciness from the rye malt. Very low bitterness from the hops and extremely smooth, which would qualify this beer to be a pale ale even though it is 8% abv. Medium body with a crisp, creamy, and slightly oily mouthfeel. Uses the citra hop just as well as Zombiedust in my opinion and has an added element of complexity with the rye malt. Well done.

Pours dark orange amber with 1/4 inch head with tight lacing. Very faint aroma hides what is about to come (drank from dogfish head IPA glass). Big pine and grapefruit peel bite your tongue and a sticky tingly finish. The flavor hangs out on your tongue, man. Almost a cigar and scotch experience as this slightly warms and opens up (granted, I'm staring off into the horizon reviewing this)... Great 2ipa from 18th street.

On tap at CBC 2016 - day 2. Nicely balanced IPA, with notes of caramel, orange zest, pine resin and tropical fruit.

Pours a cloudy amber with a wistful head; stratospheric lacing throughout.

Smell is tangerine and grapefruit rind. Mild pine. Malty sweet and rich. Just a great tropical aroma. Smells like a double rich IPA.

Citra hoppy front with satisfying drying bitterness. Earthy hop and resinous pine. Sweet malt back that meshes well. This just borderlines par excellance.

Creamy and chewy mouthfeel. Just pure delight.

Move over west coast, ya got a contender. Wow, great impression from a local brewery. This is not just a home run, but a grandslam. I'm not even going to compare this to anything, but this beats a lot of imperials I've had. Basically I'm floored, especially the ABV suits me just fine. Would definitely buy again. 18th street-keep doing whatcha doing.

Surprisingly dark orange, copper brew, thick and opaque. Topped by a cream-colored head with good retention and nice enough lacing.

Citra hops leap from the aroma, leaving a juicy and sweet impression. Dry biscuit lurks in the background, and deep breaths reveals a touch of caramel. More malt comes forward as the beer warms and opens up.

Surprising amount of sweet malt immediately greets the palate, grainy caramel, followed by juicy waves of hops. Resinous, bitter, juicy; grapefruit pulp, pine, citrus peel, star fruit, peaches.

Slightly syrupy and flat (not lively) mouth feel. Light-medium body.

This is a world-class brew in all respects save mouthfeel, which I found rather lacking. However, the Citra hop profile really leaps out at you immediately, and it is well backed up by a strong malt base.

I don't normally like the moniker "Imperial Pale Ale" for DIPA strength hoppy brews, but with the malt profile presented, along with a strong but not overwhelming hop presence, it actually seems appropriate in this big beer.

Pours an effervescent honey color with with 3 fingers of rocky cream colored head. Some hazing as advertised, stellar head retention & lacing

S: Woody & bready, lacking aroma compared to the flavor

T: Woody & herbal hops, breadyness, grassy with pomelo & a little mango up front. More mango as this warms, woodyness & tangerine as well as this warms,a little grassyness as well. Finishes with woody & herbal hops, a little pine, dryness & tangerine peel

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation, nice balance

Pretty good, kind of pricey & a freshness date would not hurt, nose is a bit subdued

Hazy golden body. Aggressive head but no lacing.

Dense tropical fruit aromas. Over ripe mango, orange, grapefruit. Light biscuit malt.

Fresh and juicy mango and orange flavor. Bitter but with a fruity sweetness. Pale malt.

Juicy and sticky mouthfeel. On the lighter side of medium body.

It's outstanding and borders IPA territory. Great citrus profile, fresh and clean.
