5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle:   Amberish, fairly clear, light carbonation, moderate white foamy head, fairly sticky lacing.   Sweet candied citrus peel like aroma, hoppy and certainly on the sticky/sweet/citrusy side.   A bit more pithy on the tongue., not as sweet as I thought.   Certainly citrusy, but needs that sweet candied citrus peel I got on the nose.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   While smooth, its not as big as I thought it was going to be.   Smells sweeter, more inviting than it actually is.   Its a hoppy side of the coin, unlike what I prefer which tends to be the malty side (nearing Barley Wine category).   Still a great IIPA, just could use some touches to further impress me.   Thanks for the bottle Bill!

A sweet Imperial IPA that is very enjoyable. It is incredibly sweet and boozy. Malt forward and very enjoyable.

explosivedog (342) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 5, 2016
355ml bottle. Pours gold with a nice head. Aroma is sweet caramel and bitter apple. Taste is strong caramel, big peach and apple. Bitterness and sweetness are both huge, but quite nicely balanced. Quite thick and oily. Nice.

Brown American bottle. Pours medium dark imperial amber, hazy, lightly opaque. Medium white foam subsiding average. Scent is medium early hops and not much else. Taste is medium imperial yeast, little bit musty. Earthy. Resin. Finish is smooth and clean. Cookie cutter. Very good.

SanfordBrewer (1505) - Sanford, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2016
A lot of vegetative hop character, without much enticing hop aromatics. Wort-like malt profile. Just not very complex or interesting.

justkoehn (114) - Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2016
No lacing and little head. Brown color with orange hue. Floral aroma. Sits easily on the tongue. Sweet start with hoppy finish and lingering bitterness. Solid DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

phillybass (115) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2016
I do not ordinarily drink a double India pale ale because I simply do not care for the high alcohol or extreme hops bitterness. This beer is drinkable although I would only have her have one in a night. I think this beer is great for sipping it's very tasty ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HippieFee (335) - - SEP 13, 2016
Bottle - Dry on the palate, feels "thick" as well. Not as much bitterness on this imperial IPA as I would have expected. Nothing that sticks out to me in terms of flavor on this beer but to my untrained palate I do get some fruit flavors. Decent beer.

Bouteille sans date. Robe orangée foncée trouble avec un mince voile de mousse. Arômes de malt caramélisé, marmelade d’agrumes, pamplemousse, gazon frais, zeste d’orange. En bouche, malt caramelisé et agrumes sucrés, pamplemousse rose saupoudré de sucre, pelures d’orange, notes d’alcool. Texture huileuse épaisse et corps moyen à rond. Bien
