Avery does know their big beers. Nice resiny, oily hops work their way through the rich malts. Not overly sweet, though. Others said in their review it is a slow sipper, but I’m going through mine way too fast.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber with large beige head that lasts and leaves great lacing. Aroma is big, sweet fruits, a little banana Runts. Taste creeps into hoppy Barleywine territory, with a massive weight to it. Tons of caramel and raisin up front, plenty of boozy malts. The hops are drowning in it all, but are able to make a statement as well. This is a drinkable sipper of a full DIPA. Palate is thick and oily. This would be a good counterpart to some flavorful grilled meat or something. Without food it takes quite a while to consume.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2015 version. Pours a cloudy amber-orange, with smallish head. Strong tropical and citrus fruit aromas, with some floral accents and hops. Flavor is on the sweetish side, with tropical fruit and piney hops in the mixture. Good but not great.

Pours a deep amber from a bottle with good off-white head, leaving lots of lacing. Big tropical fruit hoppiness, with some pine resin too. Lots of caramel flavor too, very sweet. Almost too sweet, very heavy too, a little oily. Good beer, but was hoping for more.

Draft at the Pub. Pours a hazy deep orange light Amber color with an off white head. Aroma is fantastic. Huge fleshy tropical fruit character that is very apparent in the flavor as well. Massive, absolutely massive hop character. Wonderful.

Big blast of pine with a hint of citrus. Pours a cloudy orange Amber with a thick foamy off white head. Much better balanced than the aroma led me to believe. Thickish velvety mouthfeel. Sweet malty candy. Orange, grapefruit. Bitter edgy finish with some nice boozy warming.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very nice tropical and floral citrus hop aroma with a nice Caramelized malt backing. Taste is the same. Has tremendous balance, tons of malt but not sticky or sweet. Tons of hops but doesn’t overpower the malt. Some resin hoppy finish but malt balances that very well. Really a great imperial IPA. Hops take on a bit of a medicinal herbal character after a bit. Not sure why? Overwhelmed palate?---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
