Did you ever wish your favorite IPA contained more alcohol? If so, then this is the beer for you. Strong as a stout with the flavor of an IPA. The aroma is not all that great - another reviewer said "dank and piss"; now thatís what I smell. The strong malt presence also comes through in the smell. Much less hop aroma than I would expect from such a big IPA. It looks stunning, a light crimson color similar to an Irish red ale with a large long lasting head that clings to the glass. The taste is malt up front with a brief bitter aftertaste. Not nearly as bitter as 100+ IBUís would suggest. How accurate is IBU anyway? This beer is dangerously drinkable - possibly the most easy drinking 10% beer I have ever had. Perfect for spring. Palate is a rating that I feel is slanted towards darker beers, but this IPA is thicker than others and velvety for the style. You must try this beer. If you donít, you are missing out.

This is one of the best IPAs I have tasted. On tap or in the bottle it's amazing. .........................

An epic imperial IPA. Pours a mahogany. Aromas are intense dank and piss. Bitter dank flavors supported by a great malt backbone. Wonderful.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma is dominated by dry hops and fruits; grass, papaya, pineapple, very "nostril cleansing"... The flavor has significant alcohol in it and the bitterness is balanced by a camouflaged caramel sweetness, with a long, dry finish. Not as rich as I expected. Very good body with significant carbonation.

Pours a nice copper colour with lots of white head and lacing, a nice looking beer. Malty aroma. Tastes of alcohol, bananas with a hop bitterness in the back ground. Itís ok, nothing to love nothing to hate.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle (Release 18 - 10.2% ABV, 2014) poured into a Belgian snifter. Pours an orange/light amber color with a finger of off-white head, fades into a bubbly ring around the glass. Aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, floral, pine, dank. Tasting notes of grapefruit and lemon/lime citrus fruit and peel, pine/resin, dank, onion/garlic, floral and piney hops. A little booze but nothing harsh. Juicy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Medium body with a semi-dry slightly warm finish.

Sweet, sweet, sweet. Awesome aroma, but very hoppy and kills me with its sweetness.
