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.

Litt i bittreste laget. Vel mye alkoholsmak for min del. Fint utseende. Flat "head" bra karbonert

GlasgowTAD (658) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2015
Pours a copper yellow with a white head which soon recedes to a bubbly layer. Aroma is grapefruit, mango and an assortment of tropical fruits. Taste is grapefruit, slight caramel, bitter citrus, bitter hops, mango and piney hops. Full bodied and a flavourful endurance.

Fantastic beer. Complex flavour, strong hops on the nose and up front. Sharp, clean palate.

vandc01 (198) - North Branch, Minnesota, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Poured from a 12oz bottle with a date of 8/15/2015 - one month before best by date. Very candy smelling aroma... Taste is not overwhelming awesome, but still pretty good....but it does have a nice bite at the back of the tongue...

Rötlich-dunkel, trüb. Geruch C-hopfig. Im Geschmack dann sehr süß, aber zum Ende auch bitter. Noten von ?Zahnpasta? - zumindest das Mundgefühl. Für angebliche 150 IBU sehr rund.

Tariczny (73) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 12, 2015
Nice amber crystal clear color with minimal head. Aroma: a bit of carmel from malt, pine resin and tropical friuts with a hinch of leather aroma. Taste is pretty graet full of bitterness, but i could feel a sweetness a bit and suprisingly umami, also red and tropical fruits and pine resin as well. Carbonation is soft and body is medium. Finish: nice bitter taste from hops with alcohol. Really great beer!

330 ml bottle. Pours a dark amber with light head. Aromas of rubber, tropical fruit, pine and sweet malts. Bold flavors of same. Bitter finish. Right on.

weihenweizen (2266) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Refrigerated 11.2 oz. brown bottle best before 3:30 pm May 22, 2015 poured into a glass. Deep orange with small off-white head. Aroma is light grassy hops and malt, medium body, low carbonation, and good medium-bubble lacing. Taste is some dank hops, some herbal hops, and bitter finish. Probably past its prime.

takeo (12) - Sevilla, SPAIN - JUL 10, 2015
Apariencia: color ámbar profundo, con una capa de espuma blanca y con buena retención. Nariz: Toques resinosos propios de los lúpulos y algo cítricos. Boca: toques cítricos y dulces propios del lúpulos, aunque también encontramos su parte de malta muy bien balanceada. Amargos intenso y persistente.
