Holmen2 (2265) - NORWAY - NOV 20, 2015
From tap at Øst 20.11.15. Golden orange. Dense off-white head and lacing. Strong aroma of papaya, mango, other tropical fruits, citrus and a hint of pepper. Similar, and powerful, taste balanced with Sevilla marmalade, bitterness and alcohol. Bitter citrus and tropical fruits lingering on.

Holmen1 (3929) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2015
Smaksprøve på ØST: klar gyllen med tett skum. Nydelig aroma av lyse tropiske frukter - ananas, mango og de obligatoriske citrusinntrykk. Særdeles myk og innsmigrende, voltstyrken er nesten ikke merkbar. Humlepreget er diskret og elegant og balanserer samtidig maltsødmen.

Tap at Growler Guys. Clear golden pour with a big clingy white head. Tropical fruit - intense - some floral. Little bit perfumy. Candy sugar. Yum!

I believe it is up to 12.5% alcohol for the 2015 batch. The alcohol goes by mostly unnoticed. Very drinkable.

On tap in eugene. Pours clear golden, small white head, minimal carbonation. Solid stone fruit and citrus, moderate bitterness, on top of a full body, yeah, this one legit.

On tap at APEX (I think) - Pour orange with a white head. The aroma has pineapple, orange, pine, lots of caramel, floral notes and some sweetness - nice balance for such a big IPA. It has a full rich smooth body with a lower amount of carbonation. The flavor starts pretty sweet with a candy aspect to the maltiness. There is also tropical fruits, tangerine, spice spice and pine. The finish has heavy tropical fruits and is on the sweet side. Really nice.

Sampled at GABF2015 in Denver. In the tasting glass this was golden orange with a withe head. Nose of citrus, tropical fruit, and stone fruit. Medium plus body. Flavor is potent and full of lots of tropical fruit and citrus. Finish flavorful and bitter. Alcohol well hidden under all the flavor . Really good and one of my favorite beers at the entire festival.

Brilliant clear golden with a thin foamy white top. Lovely dank and fruity and resiny nose featuring lovely nuances of pine, orange pith, leafy floral resins, tangerine, caramel coated dates, a touch of lemon, and a wee bit of fresh cut flowers. Swell flavor featuring sweet pine resins, some floral hops, a pithy orange and grapefruit tone, mild citrus zest, a kiss of caramel, and a stern sweetness from a load of pale malt, buttressed by loads of flavorful and complex hops. Amazing. Fruity, pithy, piney, dank, bitter and sweet. Spot on.

Big juicy and dank IIIPA - aggressive, but not completely a palate wrecker either. Moderately big bodied, sweet, bitter and enjoyable. Tap at Boneyard.

Draft @ Beer wars, the second beer I had during the blind tasting. Pours a bright golden orange with striking clarity and a finger of white head. Intense nose of citrus and topical fruit, very pungent with hops. Huge hop flavor, sweet and bitter. Outstanding. Easily the best of the Boise beer wars... probably one of the best Imperial IPAs I’ve ever had.
