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.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2015 First rate 23/06/13. Clear amber/dark orange colour, off-white foamy head. Tropical fruity hops but nicely resinous too, adding to a firm hoppy bitterness; malty base is too light imo but nicely sweet and creamy; good alcoholic, boozy warmth. Good body (could be better with a firmer malty backbone), medium carbonation, oily mouthfeel.

jmgreenuk (7076) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a cloudy dark amber with a frothy white head and a little broken lace. The aroma is rich malty hop leading to a medium to strong alcohol inspired bitter flavour with liqourice and resin on the palate. If I’m honest, I prefer the Punk IPA. I think the alcohol controls this beer and the liqourice/bitter flavour dominates too much.

Niall73 (2418) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2013
Keg at the crown and anchor. Pours a deep amber with a slightly off white head. Nice tropical fruit, hoppy aroma. A big funky, hoppy, earthy, rich fruity flavour. Sweet and not too bitter though its there. The booze isn't overbearing and it's well balanced. Yep, good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

color: dark brown tried by 7 degree: smells fruity and harmless but in the mouth the maltbomb exlodes. very intensive malty taste, bitter at the finish, and tha sweet malt taste stays very long in the throat.

greenclansman (903) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - JUN 13, 2013
Very nice DIPA. Great hoppy aromas. Strong malt presence in taste, with the bitterness and fruitiness of the hops. Strong on alcohol and you can taste that.

genHANS (1) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 11, 2013 does not count
butelka 330ml, nalane do sniftera. Piana niska, szybko opada do zera. Aromat: troche cytrusów, lekka nuta żywiczno chmielowa, do tego wyraźny karmel, oraz wyraźny alkohol. Smak: troche karmelu, cytrusy, alkohol, goryczka, akcenty chmielowe, alkohol drażniący. Wysycenie słabe bardzo. Kolor- bursztynowy. Ogólnie- porażka, 150ibu to jest na etykiecie, a nie w piwie....

Silvan7 (1038) - Samarate, ITALY - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle @ Centoundici. Incredibilmente profumata, difficile descrivere quanto sia intenso il profumo del luppolo e quanto invitante il vinoso alcolico del malto. Il colore č rosso rubino, ricorda un grignolino, la schiuma č color lana grezza molto fine e poco persistente. lacing lunghissimo. Il gusto č inizialmente dolce, caldo alcolico, fruttato e con sentori di toffee. poi sopraggiunge la luppolatura che sa di erba appena tagliata, di menta fresca ed altre erbe aromatiche. Buon corpo, finale amaro che obbliga alla seconda sorsata.

The head is very stable, the body is dark red. It smells very hoppy-bitter, hoparomatic, grassy. The taste is hoppy, bitter, hoparomatic, intensive crazy hoppy-bitter, tasty. This stuff is real hardcore! 13/12/11/12/11/12
