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.

Single bottle. Pours a rich, dark copper. Very little head; mostly dissipating. Moderate lacing, active carbonation. Nose is grassy with some malt. Nice and bitter, though the hops come across as "mashed." Warm, boozy finish. Extremely drinkable, especially considering the abv.

Unde (823) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2015 Hazy amber colour, relatively small head. Strong hoppy aroma, interesting! This beer delivers exactly what it promises, hardcore hoppyness, bitter taste, sweet caramel malts and rich texture. Leaves this harsh bitterness to ones mouth but after few minutes you keep on longing for more. Excellent imperial IPA.

Smaskifa (136) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2013
Tap @Håndverkerstuene, Oslo. Pours a murky yellow ocher with a decent off white head. The aroma is fresh with citrus, hops and a nice touch of sweet honey. The taste is very similar to the aroma, kicks off with the hops and citrus, then the sweetness of malts and honey takes charge, before you get a very nice balanced hoppy aftertaste - very well balanced. You can hardy notice the quite high level of alcohol, not until you get up to leave anyway. It has a very smooth and thick mouth feel, and pleasant carbonation. Wouldn’t mind having a go at this again.

Available from Tesco’s finest range as ’American Double IPA’ (£1.99 or 3 for £5). American style IPA’s are quite hard to find in the UK, but this is a prime example of a top quality, strong, bitter, hoppy IPA. It has strong notes of tangerine, pineapple, lavender, honey and hops. It has a strong bitter finish. It is a hazy dark amber colour, with nice gentle carbonation and quite a thick syrupy mouthfeel. This is one of my favourites!

bergstaden (2265) - Røros, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
Dark golden with a white head - good citrus piney hop aroma - right away the taste of the beer is a lot of hops, bitternes, with pine, resin and some citrus - the hops gives a long bitter dry finish - this was very good -

Marstonlad (730) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2014 A cloudy copper color and a medium-sized head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is pretty much a combination of sweet, caramel maltiness and piny hoppiness with refreshing fruity notes. Taste is long, rich and intensely hoppy. First sweetish flavours feature - some caramel maltiness, fresh fruits - but they are quickly swept aside by powerful piny hoppy punch that brings the taste to its dry and bitter finish. The taste is very potent and brutally hopped; this is called hardcore for a reason. Palate is medium to full bodied, a little sticky and smooth. Simply a great Imperial IPA!

Presencia limpia y color cobre con corona densa y persistente. Aroma a frutos tropicales y maltas caramelo con algo de licor. En boca es integrada y redonda muy lupulada con resina y pino, y mucho caramelo por medio. Los 9,2 solo aparecen al final

sfuen03 (357) - Barcelona, SPAIN - FEB 9, 2013
Copper color, thin head, low carbonation, small bubble. Powerful aroma, led by resin and pine, and notes of citrus, herbs. Malt slightly present. Full body, very oily. Low carbonation. FInish is bitter but not overwhelming. Leaves a nice fresh sensation in mouth. Taste is bitter but mixed with a nice sweet and sour background. Nice.
