There was a debate about this one whether or not is this high alcohol percentage disturbing. Some said it’s hidden well, some said it’s not, but I couldn’t decide. There was certainly some champane aroma there, which might have been confused with alcohol. For me it was alright, it’s a decent IIPA, but, damn, needed only one to feel a little tipsy.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2014 My second IPA, first Imperial IPA. I dont have many experience at this, in my opinion aroma is very nice, smells like fruits. Taste is very good, interesting gentian.

Pours gold with good head and surprisingly not too much haze. Plenty of hoppy character on the nose - citrus, pine, some raisins. Pretty much the same in flavour, well balanced, alcohol well hidden. Mouthfeel-wise, might be a little bit oily as well. Anyhow, pretty nice imperial ipa, but not extreme in any way - hop heads might not find it to their liking.

Piana średniopęcherzykowa, bardzo szybko opadła Aromat żywica, słód, lekki karmel, na początku białe owoce Smak słód, karmel, alkohol Odczucie półpełne, słaba goryczka, alkoholowe w ustach i przełyku Lacing bardzo ładny

Just some comments due to social conversation: Clear orange body, white head. Very resiny and quite harsh.

Piwo było dobre, aromat i smak chmielowy, alkohol niewyczuwalny (niebezpieczne).

Piwo mocno nasycone. Z butelki zapach cytrusów. Piwo mętne, piana raczej słaba. Przyjemny smak, goryczka średnia, smak grejpfrutu , skórki od pomarańczy. Pijalne, nie wyczuwalny alkohol. Jest to nawet dobre piwo.

Strasznie. Na początku uderza fajny aromat, wygląd ponad przeciętny, ale w smaku już gorzej... Czuć alkohol, lakier, a goryczka gdzieś znika w "słodkości". Kiepsko, oj kiepsko.

Butelka 1.05.2015. Aromat chemieli, nuty żywiczne i ziołowe. Piana średnia, szybko opada. Ładny lacing. Kolor ciemne złoto, klarowne. Smak zbyt słodowy, z niską jak na ten styl goryczką, bardzo wyczuwalny alkohol. Wysycenie niskie.
