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.

olr1984 (1500) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 28, 2013
11.2 oz. bottle pours slightly hazy orangeish red with a frothy tan head. Aroma is malt and hop. The taste is smooth, sweet and candy like, but way too malty.

CharlieNoodles (80) - Toulouse, FRANCE - MAY 26, 2013
Bottiglia 33cl @ il gallo brillo. Ambrata trasparente, non troppa schiuma biancastra sul giallino, fine e abbastanza persistente. Ben luppolata, si afnno sentire parecchio i 9,2 gradi, comunque piacevole.

Kolor ciemnego bursztynu, szybko opadająca piana, zapach karmelu i żywicy, alkoholowa goryczka.

TheLuddite (3) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 25, 2013 does not count
This ticks all the boxes that my taste buds desire. RateBeer wants me to post a minimum of 75 characters, but this beer needs a simple definition ....... NECTAR in a Glass!

Bottle. This version definitely has a higher kick to it in my book. Would’ve been nice to sample these vertically at some point...

Senka (1037) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle from Drink Bar, Tallinn. All-around superb imperial IPA. Hoppy to the max, pleasantly bitter full bodied brew. Pours dark orange, with slightly creamy head. Alcohol is extremely well hidden. To me it felt something like that: you take 0.5L Purnk IPA, and evaporate 1/2 of water from it, making thick, condensed, hoppy beverage. I can not imagine drinking 2 bottles in a row - your taste buds get stuffed with hopps with the first mouthful.

ManVsBeer (7636) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2013
Has a full pale ale aroma, its strength is only evident and very obvious in its taste, although some of the fruits are just about noticeable in its flavour. Copper with a very small head.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2013
Bouteille 330ml (batch 113), courtoisie de Alexandre O. De couleur cuivrée foncée et claire. Nez malté de caramel doux, de biscuits, léger de pain, de houblon herbeux, moyennement fruité (agrumes, léger de pêches et d’abricots), légèrement citrique et aux petites notes résineuses. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-doux avec une texture moyennement huileuse et aux notes résineuses. Goût moyennement amer de houblon fruité (agrumes, léger d’abricots et de marmelade), légèrement citrique et herbeux (une amertume présente toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté sucré de caramel, de biscuits, léger de pain grillé avec des notes de toffee. Parallèlement, l’amertume de houblon prend progressivement une tournure plus herbeuse, moyennement résineuse et aux notes asséchantes tout en étant accompagnée de notes d’alcool doux. Post-goût long et aux notes sèches, moyen-amer de houblon fruité (zeste d’agrumes, notes de marmelade), moyennement résineux, légèrement herbeux et aux notes citriques avec un résiduel de malt assez sucré aux faibles notes rôties.
