Caña en el lúpulo el 23-04-2014. segunda vez para esta cerveza y segunda sorpresa. Imperial ipa muy buena con sabores amargos intensos que dejan un buen regusto, de lúpulo bastante seco, en boca durante un buen rato. Aromas maltosos y herbáceos con ligeros tonos cítricos. Ligeros sabores dulces de frutas maduras iniciales con maltas y cereales, seguidos de ligeros herbáceos de lúpulo que dejan un amargor seco en boca un buen rato. Cuerpo intenso y bastante pastoso, con unos maravillosos 9.6 vol. Color ámbar casi transparente con poca espuma blanca. Una gran imperial ipa para repetir y repetir sin dudarlo y con un gran amargor seco y ""áspero"" que dura un buen rato .

Bottle at Mallaskukko.
Slightly hazy orange color, small white head. Aroma is intensive: citrus, gooseberry and mango. Medium-bodied to full-bodied. Grapefruity, mango fruityness. Intensive with long lingering bitterness. Warming alcohol. But drinkability is quite good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Whisky sour in colour with a slight wafer head. Interesting combination of alcohol, pine, orange and other citrusy hops and a nice malty backbone that seems mostly balanced although as the label states there is a lot of hops in this one and it is somewhat astringent. Moderate+ carbonation and full body, very slight hint of sweetness at first but then overwhelmed by a bitter, boozy and hoppy combination. Becomes dry with a citrus rind finish, pine and light booze.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Golden amber colour, slightly hazy, with frothy off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with orange marmalade, apricots, caramel, passion-fruit, grapefruit and generous aromas of resinous, citric hops. Malty, fruity, hoppy taste with notes of orange marmalade, pink grapefruit, passion-fruit, apricots, caramel and a solid citric, resinous bitterness in a finish with a slight alcohol bite. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness coming through. Quite bitter with an impressive hop presence backed up by a solid malt profile. Possibly not the most balanced beer I’ve tried, but very nice.

Bottle at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Small snifter shared with Zach and Brooke. Golden amber pour with slight haze. Thin white head. Serious pine and pine resin aroma with malt presence.

Moderate carbonation and medium body. Not boozy. Great DIPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks Tim and Rachel! Clear straw pour with a small white head. Once again, a faint pine a floral aroma with light citrus. Thicker bodied with similar flavor and a weird bold alcoholic pine pop at the end. Question of how old these things are and messy brewing. Farts.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. This is a big resinous hop bomb, grassy, sticky, pine, slight citrus. The malts are sweet and chewy, notes of caramel. I had a hard time with this beer.
