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.

JonMoore (2062) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2014
Bottle - hazy amber with frothy off-white head. Hoppy resinous aroma, pine, grapefruit. Flavours are citrus hops, pine, good malt backbone. Nicely put together, well balanced hoppy/sweet thing going on. Medium bodied, with a late bitter finish.

mjakopa (266) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - FEB 5, 2014
Pours a dark orange, reddish colour with some head, but it stays for a while. Aroma is a caramelized, floral, slightly fruity hoppy and quite sweet. Body is very strong alcohol, sweetness that ends in strong grassy, earthy notes with a strong hoppy bitterness. In general this is a strong beer, but perhaps a bit too sweet for a double IPA.

hackobock (3486) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget, best before 15/11/14. Clear red/amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is pine, red berries, caramel, grapefruit. Taste is sweet up front, bitter pine notes with a background malty and red berry sweetness. Medium smooth body and smooth carbonation.

Flaska från SB. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad vätska med fingerhögt offwhite skum. Doft av mango, citrus och alkohol. Stram kraftig beska med inslag av bajshumle. Eldig munkänsla och lång eftersmak.

Lots of tropical fruit on the aroma; mango, pinapple, peach. Palate is full, pleasantly oily. Flavor is fresh, fruity with bitter, resiny aftertaste.

Coloração âmbar, brilhante, com espuma bem formada e persistente. Forte e agradável aroma de frutas cítricas tropicais, com maior evidência ao maracujá, que se confirma no aroma. Seu paladar é mais pesado devido à adstringência, provavelmente secundária a lupulagem intensa, que confere grande amargor mas que é aceitável para o estilo. Aftertaste amargo e agradável, deixando o sabor de quero-mais. Alta drinkability. Muito boa cerveja, apesar da adstringência. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle. Dark copper pour, delicate off white head. Very strong aroma is as hoppy as one would expect. Resin, grapefruit, a little xmas incense, or at least the stuff I remember from church. I guess that’s floral. Hints of butterscotch and cookie dough. Slick, medium chewy body, delicate carbonation. Boozy! It’s not hiding in this one. Caramel malt backbone, bitter boozy finish. Balanced for the style.

Aroma: massive hops, citrus, pineapple, tropical fruits, sweet malts. Appearance: dark amber, clear, small white head. Taste: medium sweet, hints of bitterness. Palate: sweet dueling with bitter, ripe fruits, long bitter finish. Overall: amazing Imperial IPA, fantastically rich palate. Bottle from Brew Dog Ellon, Scotland.
