From BeerAdvocate Magazine #83 (Dec 2013):

Without a doubt, this beer needs to be cleaned up: Yeast is a distraction, and the alcohol is nearly hot here. We almost have to say this is leaning toward just being an American Strong Ale rather than an Imperial IPA, as there are so many other flavors in play that are fighting for the spotlight.

STYLE: Imperial IPA
ABV: 9.0%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Cloudy amber, long trail of lacing

SMELL: Light toasted grain, yeast, orange pith, powdered aspirin, wildflowers, tobacco

TASTE: Creamy, smooth, intense hop bitterness, thick grapefruit rind, very pungent, rose water, spicy alcohol, caramel, tropical fruit, warming, flour, bread crust, grassy, heavy yeast; semi-astringent, hoppy finish

Pours semi-hazed & effervescent caramel with 3 fingers of tan head. Crazy lacing & head retention, never clears up

S: Pineapple, grapefruit & faint breadyness

T: Some grapefruit, tangerine, pineyness & caramel up front. More grapefruit, a bit of pineapple, pears & pine as this warms, along with leafy hops & earthy hop notes, some booze sneaking around the corner of your tongue & breadyness. Finishes with pears, pineapple, breadyness, caramel & grapefruit & pineyness

MF: Medium bodied, somewhat grainy, lively carbonation & coarse graininess, okay balance

A passable at best DIPA, nothing to get your nickers in a twist about... Just doesn't quite pull together
