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!

Pith (123) - New York, USA - APR 5, 2013
Pours dark gold with foamish cream head. Aroma in back is alcoholic caramel smell with sweet flower hops. Taste is pleasant mix together of simultaneous flower sweet hops and caramel increasing and taking over to a toffee roundness then a lingering hop bite aftertaste.

Beerman6686 (4170) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2013
This one poured a lighter orange color with an off white head. Aroma was earth, soap, light orange peel and caramel. Flavor was very bitter but in an astringent soapy way, not a good way, with too much caramel getting through too.

Pours a golden color with a medium white head. Aromas are malts, grass, pine and a frank raisin taste. A slightly hoppy bitterness. Refreshing and tasty helles. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz. bottle. Pours dark copper color with a white head. Citrus, floral and pine notes. The alcohol is very present. Not as hoppy on the finish as I would have liked. It seems a bit off to me.
