I love everything Anderson Valley puts out and this is not a disappointment. Great DIPA without the huge kick at the end that can be very abrupt with other DIPAs.

Hazy gold with a reddish hue and a thick off white head. Aroma of candied orange peel and pine. Big malty flavors enhanced with resinous hop bitterness. Very nice, balanced but not boring.

Orange pour, big fluffy eggshell white head. Orange, zest, biscuit, tropical fruits, resin, toffee nose. Flavour follows the nose. Soft, big body, lots of grapefruit bitterness in the finish. Lovely.

Wow this is one of my new favourite beers. Aroma is amazing, nice fruity tropical smells with an initial botterness which is finished with a beautiful malty mouth burst. This is truly a classic Imperial IPA!

355 ml bottle, thanks Timo A. Pours a copper colour with a thick head. Aroma of strong herbal and grassy hops, citrus and hay. Flavour of strong grassy hops, herbs, biscuit, mild citrus, hay and mild licorice notes. Medium bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, lingering bitter, grassy finish. Refreshing and has a nice herbal hop profile. Enjoyable.

Hazy orange from bottle to glass. Light head that disappeared quickly. Full bodied and hippy. Maybe a little light for a double IPA but very good balance.

12 oz bottle - pours hazy orange, gold with nice big, lasting, white head. Fluffy. Aromas of orange, malt, biscuit, and citrus. Taste is mildly fruity, more malts and yeast, with nice bitter finish. Spice and bite. Medium-full bodied. Good brew. Deceptively smooth at high ABV.

Great beer! Good bodied DIPA with a good combination between malty sweetness and fruity hops. Thumbs up!
