L -Rusty, dark orange color and a murky body with less than a finger of off-white head

S - Caramel, toffee, blood orange, grapefruit. Shares characteristics with Scotch Ales.

T - Much more fruit forward with those oranges and grapefruit. Pure juice extract and hop oils, caramel malts and some pine.

F - Thick, but not syrupy. The juicy notes make it not too hard to drink. No alcohol.

O - A great Triple IPA. Citric and hop juices combine for a killer combo. Surprisingly easy to drink.

This is a very tasty double IPA. Lots of malt and biscuit to balance out the hops. Strong sweet candied tropical fruit flavors.

Poured a cloudy apricot color with a one finger head in a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Intense toffee aroma- reminiscent of a Wee Heavy. Some citrus.

Silky, smooth MF. Smoother with warming.

Complex taste: apricot, fruit and especially toffee.

Medium hoppy finish.

One of the best NEIPAs around. Looking forward to tasting more of their beers.

This brewery is touted as America's first all imperial Brewing company. Overly ripe mango smoothie, pineapple and peach. Grapefruit pith finish. Very sweet, cracker malt profile. Lower bitterness, but flavor lingers. Getting almost no alcohol heat on this. This is SUPER dangerous at 12%. as it warmed, the sweetness level was super high.

Pours hazy foggy amber orange with a receding frothy white foam head. Smells like orange juice, grapefruit, sweet caramelized nutty biscuity malts, honey, toffee, slightly boozy caramel, pineapple, mango, papaya, overripe melons, with floral resinous earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like sweet caramelized nutty biscuity malts, fresh orange, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, papaya, overripe melons, some honey, toffee, caramel, with dank floral resinous earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels creamy soft and smooth, medium bodied with moderate low carbonation. Overall a nice, big, malty and juicy imperial IPA.
