This Imperial India Pale Ale Rocks... Hardcore! But donít 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.

33cl bottle. Orange to deep amber with a large off-white Head. Lots of grape and grass in aroma, some caramel and pine aswell. Mature tropical fruits, alcohol and caramel in taste. A nice DIPA that transfers cool when aged. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mecafilo (189) - Perugia, ITALY - JUL 5, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2016 On Tap @ Brewdog, Camden, London, UK. Pours with an amber, clear colour, frothy, medium lasting, off-white head. Aroma is extremely hoppy, citrus, herbs, grass, moderate malty. taste is heavy bitter, little sweet. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, long lasting bitter finish.

Sathorael (159) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Pours hazy brown with thick soapy white head. Spotty lacing. Aromas are balanced heavily on the sweet side for a DIPA. Taste is sweet caramel, grassy, with an oily dough flavor as well. Reminds me more of an American Barleywine.

JLDC (85) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2013
Colour: Orange Amber with a fine head. Nose: Fruity, fragrant (citrus, blood orange), floral with a yeasty sweetness Flavours: Mango sweet start, classic IPA bitterness with a strong hop flavour. Intense and indeed hardcore. Finish: Bitter, alcoholic and slightly medicinal. Verdict: Nice, but not quite great in comparision to Raging Bitch. But to be honest, IPA still isnít my favourite style.

It smells like a fruity pool, tempting you do dive in. Once you taste it you want more. It tastes more like a mead.

Aroma of malt and mild hops. Apperance is crystal clear caramel. Taste caramel, alcohol, vanilla, sweet. Nice sweet, mild hops and alcohol finish. Body is medium. Overall: Probably one of the best iipa i have tried! Great use of hops!
