A nicely bitter DIPA, really candy-like malts, a huge citrus blast. I think it is pretty good.

Holy smokes, this was released at last weekend’s Lupulin Carnival and I - not even having attended - am the first to rate it? Shame on you, festival-goers. Shame on you. Draft at Bailey’s Range. Pours a clear, deep golden color with a small white head. The aroma is big and fruity- citrusy hops, pineapple, and a host of tropical fruits on top of a caramel malt backbone. The flavor doesn’t pack quite the same punch; citrusy hops, caramel malts, pineapple, and crackers. Surprisingly dry, especially late. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation. Good.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. I brought it. Caramel gold and clear. A white head. So much hop action in the nose. This is all over the place, hop wise. They are tasted, too. Nice citrus is big and bitter, some grapefruit but not pallet killing. This is good stuff. Caramel is light but those hs are nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at Four Hands Lupulin Carnival 2012 - Pours copper with a white head. The aroma has grapefruit, pine, tropical fruit, caramel malt and cotton candy. Medium husky body with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts out with grapefruit rind, earth, pineapple and dry crackery malt. The finish is kinda rough and abrasive due to the hoppiness ~ this is in a good way. It gets earthy and piny as it warms. Nicely done IIPA.

sample at EBF, on the sweeter side but the tremendous amount of hops counter it well, big hop aroma.

This was sent to me by Strykzone. Thanks Dave for this fantastic beer.
Pours a hazy apricot color with a really big rocky head that lasted seemingly forever and left lacing rings like Elmer’s glue. Really attractive. The nose is is caramel malts, tropical fruit, and grapefruit. Medium body and a sticky resinous mouthfeel. Flavor is intense, with citrus and pine hops just bombarding the palate. Finish is long, dry and the flavors just stay with you. Alcohol well hidden. I think most people are underrating this fantastic beer maybe because they drink it too cold. This was started at 58 degrees and it got even better as it warmed a few more degrees. Superb imperial IPA. Loved this one.
