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!

Fritz123 (1315) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2013
Draft at Sybarite Pig. Tulip. Orange deep amber pour with thick, foamy white head. Solid lacing. Apricot, plums, and spices on the nose. Taste of sweet ripened fruits, pine, resin, malts, cinnamon, coriander and plums. Very bitter finish from the hops. Very complex but not well balanced. Seems rather segmented.

mansquito (4118) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 21, 2013
Associated Supermarket, Bushwicck growler: Pours an amber color with a whitish head. Aroma is citrus, flower, berry, and caramel malts. Taste is somewhat sweet. Alcohol is well covered. Some complexity and intermingling amongst the hop varietals. Not bad. Pretty easy to drink for a DIPA.

Heavy IPA. More of a bold IPA than a grapefruit fresh beer. A little huskies than I hoped.

AWISLguy (1771) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2013
Bomber from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. Pours an orangey-copper with an orange-white head leaving nice lacing. Aroma has heavy pine and citrus with a solid resinous presence ... and caramel. Taste is of sweet caramel with a strong piney/citrusy hop presence. Quite sweet with a bunch of bitter. Very rough and sticky. Some alcohol noted. Shrug? It was 8 months old, perhaps it would have been more smoothed out and balanced new? The components are there, but needed to be blended better.

Tasting at Red White and Bleu. Dark copper with white head. Aroma is unsweetened iced tea. Unexpected and odd. Taste has dull hops, floral and pine. Not a fan.
