This Imperial India Pale Ale Rocks... Hardcore! But don’t feel obliged to take our word for it, this little bottle has a grandiloquent story to tell. 2,204 malted Maris Otter grains gave all they had to offer the world to provide the robustly delicate toffee malt canvas for the ensuing epic. 4 Hop Cones willingly sacrificed themselves in fiery cauldron that is our brew kettle to ensure your mouth is left feeling punished and puckering for more. 9,900,000,000 yeast cells frantically fermented their little hearts out as the sugars were magically turned into alcohol in the dark depths of our fermentation tanks. 2 humans and 1 canine companion are relatively happy with the results
Note this is for the new petrol blue coloured labels with white lettering, which is 9.2%. Ratings for the older bottles with with bright blue label and black lettering should go under the first edition.

Prachtige oranje kleur, heerlijk hoppig aroma. Citrus, grapefruit. Bitter as hell met een kurkdroge afdronk. Ipa op zijn best !!!

Looks good with big head and dark golden colour. Aroma is warm. Taste of the hops is overpowered by alcohol which lingers.

FireGlider (323) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 3, 2016
Amber or more like orange color(color is the most orange I have ever seen) with small white head. Very weak smell. Strong hops aroma with slight malt notes and nice refreshing taste. Dry and delayed heavy bitter aftertaste. My first Imperial IPA, I will definitely try more beers from that style.

Bricks (838) - Delaware, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Dark brown, slight red coloration. Aroma is much maltier than expected. Reminiscent of a barley wine.. Strong toffee on the taste.

Bottled. Dark amber colour, with slight head. Intense flavours of malt and hops. It’s like your taste buds have been punched....... in a good way! This is a "Proper Beer", that’ll put hairs on you chest. :-)

ANZUShophunter (206) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2016
From bottle in IPA glass. Pours amber with one finger head that dissipated rather quickly. Nice earthy hops and malts on the nose. A rich beer in both hop and malt profile with broad taste range from toffee to prunes to orange peel. Finish is dry and not as bitter as I expected from the IBU rating.

yourilevesque (901) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2015
Au déjeuner en accompagnement de pigeons sur le BBQ le 30 décembre en picnic sur la terrasse. De somptueuses dentelles blanches décorent ma riche et noble coupe cuivrée. Nez très résineux et malté qui pourrait passer pour un weat wine très houblonné. C’est en bouche que le liquide dévoile sa vraie nature. Collant, plutôt mince et sec, le liquide a un corps moyen. Saveurs terreuses se résolvant sur une amertume sèche et puissante. Cette bière est ma première bière en plusieurs jours. Chers!

sjogro (1572) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2015
Fles thuis, van ABCbeers. Vaker gedronken, nooit gerate. Boerenkool/andijvie/groente bitter, cremerig zachte mout, sinaasappel en alcohol punch aan ’t eind. Backlog from 2015/10/26.
