UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014 Very overrated beer. The honey completely destroys the bitterness of the hop flavor and is to sweet to enjoy.

Really excellent beer. Extreme hop but as smooth as you can possibly get. You won’t find many better.

On tap. Pours cloudy orange amber with low white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, mango, peach, vanilla, very pleasant! Taste is big resin and fruit bitter up front followed by a very balanced fruit sweet. Body is rich and creamy with soft carbonation.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle 355ml at home, poured into a big snifter. ABV 10%.
I am drinking this exactly 5 momths old, 21st January bottled, 21st of June drank.
Clear body, golden orange in colour, with one finger of slighty off-white head, kind of froathy, with good retention, leaving light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of pine, resin, tropical fruits, light honey, alcohol, even some vanilla.
Great taste, grapefruit, tropical fruits, quite bitter, orange peel on the finish, citrus, light alcohol.
Medium body, good carbonation, very dry palate.
Fantastic, great beer!

Great hopsplosion---a wild hop-forward IPA; nothing I've had before seems to pack so much variance into each sip. Draft. Holy Hound taproom, York, PA.

From a bottle shared by jheath99. Pours hazy orange copper with a bubbly off white head and lots of lacing. Tastes like strong sweet alcohol, orange, pine, hops, caramel. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like strong, sweet hops, orange citrus, and booze.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
12 oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Pours a dark honeyburst color with a medium sized white head that has great retention and lots of lacing.
Smell is of floral hops, honey, hints of citrus, and a sweet toffee .
Taste is sweet up front with honey and a bite of grapefruit, combined it is nice. As if moves through the palate, the alcohol shows up and reminds you this is 10% and finishes with punchy hops. Mouthfeel is a bit on the oily side, smooth, fairly heavy and even has some creaminess to it.
Overall, an awesome Imperial IPA that you have to make sure and get each Winter before it’s sold out.
