poured from a can into a snifter glass

dark golden color with a nice head. strong citrus and hops aromas...it was one of the more bitter beers I have experienced, but it was quite nice once I was accustomed to it.

overall - I enjoyed it and would have it again

Poured from 12 oz can dated 1/21/2016 into snifter.

Can says Imperial India Pale Ale versus Industrial, but based on other comments, I think this is the right entry for the review.

A: Somewhat cloudy golden orange with 1 finger white head that settled to a thin ring around the edge after a minute or two and leaving some moderate lacing.

S; Bready malts and candied oranges mixed with a punch of piney hops.

T: Sweet tangerines, mango, and biscuit malts balanced with piney bitterness. ABV is apparent but seems bring something to the table.

M: Medium to full body with fairly light carbonation. Finish features some hop bitterness and alcohol heat.

O: Very unique DIPA. My first brew from Kelso, and hopefully I will get the opportunity to try more from these guys!

A malt liquor had sex with an IPA and had a home birth c-section. Overall, I enjoyed the beer but the alcohol started to get very noticeable on the tongue towards the end.

I'm not really sure what this beer is. On one hand, the page I'm on now says "Industrial IPA", but the beer I've got in my hand says "Imperial IPA". The cans look exactly the same except for that one difference. Rebranding? Looks like a fellow BA added "Imperial Pale Ale" to this brewery's page a couple months ago, but he forgot the "India" so he kinda fucked that one up. Oh well, this appears to be the correct beer, so here is where my review is.

L - dark orange. Slightly opaque.

S - huge pine. Sweet tropical fruits. Candied orange.

T - more of that malty candied citrus. Orangey hops with a killer piney bitterness on the finish. That, combined with the booze makes it almost overwhelming. Jet fuel. Lot of alcohol burn for 10%. 120 Minute goes down smoother than this.

F - low carbonation. Thick and syrupy.

O - packed full of flavor, this brew is unrelenting. A bit unrefined, but is sure to get you kicked up a few notches.
