Strong bright pleasant citrus scent. Lots of soapy foam on this one. Flavors of citrus and piney hops, smooth and full bodied. Slight bitter bite, but goes down very smooth and leaves pleasant citrus aftertaste. 9% abv creeps up on you but isn't overpowering.

Look: Very nice amber haze to it. Rocky head which dissipated fairly quickly
Smell: Prominent citrus notes which are to be expected for a DIPA. Most definitely an alcohol odor to it, but at 9% this is also expected.
Taste: Nice and hoppy, but not overly bitter, I'm guessing an IBU in the high 50s to mid 60s based solely on my IPA palate. The bitter is in the finish which I personally like.
Mouth Feel: No real burn like I would expect from a 9% DIPA which is nice. It gives me a slight dry feeling on my tongue which isn't unpleasant, but not something I enjoy either.
Overall: This isn't a style that would be a go to for me, but I could certainly enjoy it on occasion.

Solid old school dipa. Best I've had? Not even close. Will I buy again? Yep.

Piney smell with slight malt.

Tastes like a really good dipa. Piney hops with decent malt balance. I like it. Normal dipa mouthfeel. Not real smooth but tastes and feels like a good beer.

Overall solid beer with well hidden alcohol. Will buy again.

Yellow amber brew with plenty of foam in the Affligem chalice. This is hugely fragrant with a garden of hops and apricot in the nose. It's rather sweet and hot, fairly sturdy in the body, and a sudsy mouthfeel to give it a lift.

Flavors of grilled mango, papaya, and orange peel. It is a little woody in the finish, with an astringent aftertaste. Overall, this is a really good DIPA, among many. It is stuffed with hops but not excessively bitter. From the 12 oz can purchased in the far Northwest.

A very nice imperial IPA. Rich flavor without overdoing it or being overly complex. Goes down smoothly with no alcohol heat. Got quite mellow as it warmed.

A lot of hops and ABV. Lacks complexity or anything noteworthy. Not worth the extra cost.

Found at cheese traders on closeout, 5.99 for a six can box.
This is a solid dipa in a 12oz can that alone made these seem special.
Pleasing hopped fruit taste with a good bit of hidden heat from the 9%.
I'll be grabbing a few more boxes of these to enjoy thru the month.

Big thick strong citrus pith and peel hop aromas and flavors. Sticky and thick with resinous hoppiness. Lingering strong bitter bite. A big IPA with lots of fresh hop flavors.

Hazy orange-amber body, two fingers of creamy head
Orange blossoms, malt, funk, apricots, mango, grapefruit
Strong pine character, grass, melon, caramel, grapefruit
Harsh on the tongue
A little unbalanced toward the bitterness, but a flavorful and enjoyable drink

A little boozy for my pallet, but pretty solid. It tastes better than it smells.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a robust, two finger white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus and lightly dank hops, orange, light mixed tropical stone fruit. Flavor is lightly caramel malt, citrus and lightly piney hops, orange, passion fruit, hints of light stone fruit a some tropical notes. Finishes with nice lingering citrus and piney hops with residual fruit and esters. Medium bodied with light creaminess and good carbonation. A full flavored imperial IPA with a traditional malt base and nice mixed citrus, fruit and piney hop flavors from the Mosaic hops. This is often not my favorite hop, but it is well handled here. I liked the fruit flavors in the main taste and the good lingering hops with pleasant bitterness in the finish. This was a stray can that came my way, but I'd buy this again in it appeared in the local marke. Nice.

Dark copper orange color. Smells of orange and dankness. Taste is citrus but there's also a herbal spice undertone that creeps up with the alcohol heat. Nice hop to malt balance. Finishes dry.

Hatter IPA tastes a bit better than Hoptronix for me.

Tangy yogurt. Sherbert. Citrus.

Has a sleek soft mouthfeel. Full-bodied. Alcohol is well disguised.

Drinkable but simplistic and shallow.

Dark orange. Low head. Low carbonation. Some cloud from sediment.

Zest of orange and green hay on the nose with a earthy wheat and barley sweetness.

Blood orange fruitiness starts off with a big bitter grainy finish. Some coriander spice notes are present along with a decomposed alcohol heat.

Despite the low carbonation, I quite like the feel. Very dry on the finish but responsibly balanced with the grain sweetness.

9.0 abv packs a punch. But it all goes down surprisingly easy. An extra nod for the well crafted balance. This could have been fun to cellar a 6 pack and crack one every few months just to see where the alcohol heat and the earth tones go with time.

A solid DIPA, a little hot at 9%. Nice hop/malt balance. Recommended.
