mattmc1973 (477) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2012
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

Bottle to glass. Pours a mostly clear copper rust color with a thin light tan head. Aroma is full of fleshy tropical fruit hops, caramel sweetness. Flavor packs the same punch. Tons of fleshy fruit hops. Medium body with a long lingering sweet fruity hops. Excellent imperial IPA!

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

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 (5) - - 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
