harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottled: unk Itís a hazy amber with a billowy cream top that leaves a ton of lace. The nose is malt, resin, onion, hay, sage, plastic and turned nylon. Flavor is bitter, biscuit, astringent, shitty, shitty beer here. Medium on full bodied with moderately hi carb and a long bitter finish. Iíve long wondered how Beer Valley has stayed in business, tonight I tried this beer after three years of absence. My suspicion is reignited at this time. Horrible beer.

Orange, feine weisse schaumkrone, hopfenbittere mit etwas malzigem hintergrund im aroma, starke bittere, insbesondere im nachklang, etwas zu wenig ausgewogen für ein imperial pale ale ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2013
On draught at 2013 Portland Fresh Hop Beer Fest. Deep golden color. Grass and pine hop aroma. Taste is resinous pine and citrus hops. Finishes with a sweet citrus aftertaste.

evergreen0199 (2899) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle from Total Wines, Bellevue, Seattle, WA, USA. A dark cloudy orange coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, citrus aroma. Tastes hoppy, citrus, pine, very bitter but also quite complex. I prefer my DIPAís to be less harsh.

Acid303 (665) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - AUG 24, 2013
65cl bottle, served in Shaker. Pours hazy orange with small/medium off-white frothy head (lasting, some lacing). Aroma is tangerine, caramel and citrus. Very nice. Regarding the flavour, strong as an Imperial/Double IPA should be: again caramel with significant bitterness, hints of tropical fruits and grassy notes. A little bit of alcohol, not surprising considering itís 9% ABV. The palate is sweet and dry at the same time. Medium body, perfect carbonation. Good job overall.

zgaier (1884) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Pours a cloudy orange with a off white head and sweet citrusy aroma. Taste is sweet as well, hoppy, of citrus, pine, caramel and light floral fruity notes with a bitter, dry finish.

jjgmd (1960) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark rusty orange with no head. Nose is deep bitter citrus. Taste is citrus with virtually no carbonation, despite being bottle conditioned, maybe a fluke bottle. Ends on bitter notes , but does not live up to the rating. Quaff score 6 / 10

Had this beer poured from draft at Taphouse Grill in Seattle. Grapefruit taste with very bitter back and great hops. Floral. Pretty good one.
