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!

Very nice representation of the style. Pours a copper/brown with half-inch head. Aroma of fresh hops but not so much on the initial mouth feel. Has a lingering flavor that produces more hops as it lingers. All in all...nicely done

Deeper orange with just a thin layer of foam. This has a good malt base and plenty of bitterness. Floral and herb hop aroma but little in hop flavor.

APPEARANCE ? dark copper color fills the bulb and luscious foamy white beauty fills the top of this tulip glass. NOSE ? great scents of fruit with an resin hop scent that?s almost hidden. FLAVOR ? strong notes of resniy bitter hops start the DIPA off right. It mellows slightly through the sip, but not by too much.

Medium amber, clear. Full body, unctous texture, moderate flavor, high but not excessive heat, beautifully balanced mouthfeel, avg but tasty finish. Bittersweet, good acidity. Yeasty, hoppy, malty. Delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at Top Hops - NYC. Pours clear gold with a foamy white head. Good stuff, pretty sweet and oily. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Heavy on the finish with rich tropical fruits, oily hops. OK.

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

trapped (1371) - New York, TURKEY - AUG 9, 2014
Drought. Hazy orange-yellow, large creamy white head, orange peel aroma, sweetish hoppy taste with orange flavor, medium finish. Very mellow for an IPA.

drsandman (613) - New York, USA - JUN 23, 2014
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.
