Bomber poured into a tulip glass. Dark copper in color with a thin tan ring of foam. Aroma of pine and sweet caramel malt. Taste is sweet and moderately bitter. Not sure of the age on this one, if itís older and the hops are fading and bringing the sweetness to the forefront, or if itís supposed to be like this. Itís good either way. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with moderate carbonation. Good DIPA, more dark, sweet, and malty than I would expect out of a California DIPA, but very good nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Pours amber orange with a white head. Toasted and rustic grainy malty notes, earthy and floral hops, and lighter piney notes. Not bad.

slowrunner77 (1550) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 22, 2014
A little dark and sweet and malty for my tastes, but that being said...still enjoyed it. Just leaning towards the barleywine catergory a little and away from the bright hoppy IIPAs I gravitate towards

Amber pour with a tan, lasting head. Beautiful piney aroma that nicely complimented the taste. Lots of hoppy pine with a hard sweet/cotton candy like balance. Lots of hop lots of sweet but very balanced. Not particularly dynamic, narrow but well done and enjoyable. High alcohol was nicely hidden. Would I drink again? yes. Would I order again? yes.

bcabaday (3) - - JUL 21, 2014 does not count
Poured from a 22oz bottle, not sure of the bottle date. Poured amber with a slight reddish head, great color and head retention. Aroma wasnít prevalent, but I have a harder time with that and Iím a little stuffed up, I did get a lot of booze/alcohol in pouring and on the nose. Not as much hop as I would have liked and definitely sweet. Defiantly left a hot taste in my mouth after the sweet subsided. A lot of caramel, a little hot but overall a good beer. Iím not a big fan of imperials but I did enjoy this beer

_angst_ (2767) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2014
Bottle received as extra in trade. Thank you heatwaves! Pours clear deep amber with a rather big frothy and bubbly reddish beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of spotty and sticky lacing and trace on the glass. Smell is slightly malty, slightly fruity and tiny earthy with dark bread, grapefruit juice, pine needles, freshly cut grass, moist soil, resinous wood, alcohol, biscuits, mango, overripe pineapple, star fruit, brown sugar sweetened black currant tea and caramel. Taste is sweet, bitter, fruity, herbal, earthy and malty with caramel, biscuits, grapefruit juice, oily pine cones, freshly cut grass, resinous wood, grapefruit juice, orange zest, lemon zest, alcohol, pineapple, mango, peach skins, brown sugar,black currant tea and hints of caramelized apples. Mouthfeel is round, slightly sticky sweet, slightly boozy, slightly oily bitter, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is slightly sweet, bitter and fruity with caramel, biscuits, grapefruit rinds, orange zest, moist grass, pine needles, resinous wood, mango, star fruit, alcohol, sweetened black currant tea and alcohol. Too sweet for me but fresh and quite good...
