COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The role of the New Earth Army is to resolve conflict worldwide. One of the techniques utilized is Sparkly Eyes, which psychically gives the disinclination to attack others. You can see Lothar practicing his technique which may be followed by non-lethal methods of conflict should Sparkly Eyes fail to be effective. We have developed Sparkly Eyes Imperial Sproose so you too can adopt the peaceful ways of the Warrior Monk on your journey to be a Jedi of the New Earth Army.

Smells like spruce, and tree back, sap, along with some honey. Lemon, orange and grapefruit join the mix. Flavor matches. Lots of spruce and honey. Tree sap. Did I just take a bite out of a tree?? Moderate bitterness. Fair amount of sweetness. I was expecting a harsh palate and it was quite the opposite. Very interesting. Very different. Fun to try. A beer that likely needs to be shared..

Bottle:   Pours like Bit-O-Honey, thick creamed honey, soft to moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Whoa, super aroma of spruce, pine, and gingerbread.   Unfortunately, as strong as it is, it reminds me a bit of a urinal cake.   YIKES!   Still very assertive on the tongue, pine, spruce, gingerbread cookie (albeit that one is overshadowed and no clue how that would end up here), the finish reminds me too much of an over done urinal cake.   Fairly chewy, full bodied, nice and thick, creamy, but that over abundance of spices and urinal cake is tough.   Finishes... well,l just as it started.   Thankfully I shared this with 5 other people otherwise I have no clue how I would do this by myself.   Thanks Bob!

ReggieDunlap (3029) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2013
While this smells and tastes a bit too caramely/malty sweet for my taste in IPAs/2IPAs, it is a bit crushable and it is named after "the men who stare at goats." Big plus. But really, a bit too much candied fruit and caramel in the nose and too sweet in the flavor. Not bad but not my style of imperial IPA.

DuffMan (6548) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 8, 2013
On tap @ Sugar Maple, Milwaukee. Deep red orange, nearly no head. Intensely piney, earthy and resinous. Very full bodied. Less herbal thn the Sproose Joose II, and heavier mouthfeel. Intently bitter finish. Another amazing IIPA by these guys-- awesome!

Humorous bottle wiht cowbell. The beer smells utterly fantastic, so much tropical. Flaor is huge, boozy, sweet, and sprucey. I just donít like t.

olr1984 (1044) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 9, 2013
22oz bomber pours a hazy dark gold with a off white head. Big pine hop aroma. Man that pine comes through in the taste big time. Almost overwhelming pine bark taste.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Picked up a 22-oz bomber at Star Liquor and sampled at the GTMW 2013, both in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a hazy amber colored brew with a thick beige head that just wonít go away. Aroma of north woods pine, citrus zest and floral hops that hides any of the caramel malt. Taste is extra-full bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of pine, citrus, some tropical fruit, papaya, caramel malt and a hint of honey. Finish is so thick you could actually eat this with a fork. Lots of pine and citrus aftertaste with some lingering bitterness that you need at least 15 minutes to cleanse your palate. I thought their BH Sproose Joose II IPA was their crowned winning Double IPA until I finally caught up to this one. Too bad I canít give extra points for the cowbell.

sherm1016 (1126) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2013
22oz bottle from Downer Wine and Spirits, split with dwm1034. Pours a deep amber color with an off white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, pine, grass. Medium to heavy on the palate with soft, creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, caramel, pine hops, some grass, with a clean, bitter, pine finish. Very nice.

arkurzynski (1487) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Draft. Deep burnt orange color. Nose is dank pine, meaty citrus fruit, faint grapefruit and sticky caramel and fruity malt. Flavor is grapfruit pulp, pine, and citrus rind with a heavy, sticky mango fruit malt base. Sticky, fruity malt and hop residual with a decent dose of booze. Big palate. Nice "balance" to this one. Missing a lot of the spruce aspects that I was expecting, but an overall stellar beer.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Clear fire red with a large silky tan to brown crown. Aroma of heavy spruce with pine, tree bark, alcohol, sweet malt and mild mango/tropical fruit. Taste is big and odd with spruce, alcohol, sweeter malt and a moderate bitter finish.
