COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Imperial or Double IPA is a brew not to be taken lightly. Crafted in small batches from the finest European malts and American hops. A huge earthy hop aroma is followed by a pleasant caramel sweetness. Four hop varieties round out this perfectly balanced beer that is sure to warm your soul and for that we offer No Apologies!

Au nez, on croirait avoir devant nous un barleywine américain. Fort goût de caramel, canne à sucre et un soupçon de houblon. Très résineuse et plutôt intense pour une DIPA

Drought. Hazy orange-yellow, large creamy white head, orange peel aroma, sweetish hoppy taste with orange flavor, medium finish. Very mellow for an IPA.

On tap @ Top Hops. All malt, hold the hops? Some sweet spruce, no bite at all, not that I need any bite (in fact some of the best have none) but there is no hop character IMHO, really really sweet for an IIPA. Not sure I follow, perhaps it was an off keg / pour. Color was copper with off white head. Super sweet & gooey, sweet malt bomb.

The description is better than the taste. A little too sweet in the fisnish. Very nice color and head though. On draft at The Malt House NYC

Excellent combination of rich malt and several hops in blend. Bombastic label will keep you reading for 20 minutes!

Flaska. Doft av marsipan i början. Den doften klingar fort av o sedan en mycket svag doft. Smak av björnklister o sött godis o bra beska. Tyvärr så slår alkoholen igenom rätt ordenligt.

Först mild doft av frukter å gräs samt lite trä. Smakar söta torkade frukter å mycjet malt. Mycket Jordkällare . Tyvär efter kort stund övergår ölen i glasen till alkoholrika smaker. Synd .

Pours a hazy copper-golden, thick head, leaves substantial lacing on the glass. Not the overpowering hop aroma of some Imperial IPAs, but pleasant hoppy aroma. Malt profile that balances the hop bitterness is what shines for me on this one, and the resinous mouthfeel, bordering oily. Vanilla, apricot, not-quite butterscotch flavor balanced enjoyable by the malts. A bit of a grapefruity and orange flavor going on. Outstanding ale.
