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.

Tap and bottle in The Rake. Aroma smashes you with what seems like simcoe to me, very piney, tangerine, bit citrusy hit, underlying toffee malt, but its all about the hops. Taste is similar, but seems to keep it all balanced, its not too sweet or bitter, its just an intence rush of flavour on the tougne which melts together nicely. Good long finish. Extremly easy to drink for the %. Good show!

Bottle. Pours hazy orange/amber with foamy head. Nice, complex aroma: toffee, honey, caramel, pine, some citrus. Medium sweet with light bitter finish. Medium to full body, slick and a little sticky feel, soft carbonation. Overall very good beer, but I prefer IIPAs with more hops aroma and bitterness, which mine was lacking, to my astonishment. 150 IBU? Would never guess.

Hazy dark ochre liquid, average head. Strong, soft, fruity aroma of hops. Medium body, little bit carbonation. Taste is bitter.

La explosión de aromas nada más verterla en la copa casi me tumba: a frutas, a bosque, a flores… yo qué sé… a mil cosas más. Densa, turbia, con una espuma cremosa riquísima!! En boca se perciben muchos menos matices, ya que están presentes al principio, pero sus amargos terminan por matarlos.

ardeo (179) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2016
Bottle 33. Belle bière cuivrée presque limpide, bulles moyennes. Nez : orange, citron, vanille, résineux. Grosse effervescence en bouche. Tout le panier de fruits est présent (agrumes, fruits exotiques, prune...), toute l’étagère des épices également avec en prime le bois et le sous-bois ... et on ne sent pas l’alcool (un peu tout de même). Enorme amertume pour une grande IPA.

BeerNinjaUK (317) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2016
Tried as "Mr President", bottle from Tesco. Pours rich clear coppery amber with fleeting head of orange-beige. Aroma strongly hoppy - deep pine, mango, fudge and port. Medium sweetness balanced with heavy bitter edge. Full-bodied with thick oily texture and long bitter finish. Not sure I could have more than one of these in a row - very rich. Enjoyed this though.

Offert par Nutjes. Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur cuivré type quadruple. Mousse inexistante. Au nez alors c’est intéressant, épicé, pains d’épice ? Une pointe Malté . En bouche c’est prenant ! Une explosion de saveur épicé sans aucun doute, une pointe de mangue , une amertume tenace est longue ! Une fin de bouche moelleux étonnant car c’est une bière assez forte alcoolique mais pourtant pas un goût d’alcool très présent plutôt bien ! Top!

Great Double IPA better than the last recipe in my opinion, nice aroma or battered mango and a sweet taste that ends with a little bitterness

Quelle bière ! Des arômes extrêmement marqués (épices, pain d’épice). Ce nez se retrouve sur les mêmes palettes de goût très tournés vers les épices. Bière équilibré, subtile. Forte au niveau alcoolique mais à peine perceptible. Une très grande bière.

Świetne piwo. Wyraźny i przyjemny aromat oraz wysoka goryczka to największe atuty tego piwa. Wygląd niestety średni.

Villyzzz (91) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours amber with small off-white head. Aroma is strong hops, citrus and oak. Taste is hoppy and boozy. Palate is full with quite big carbonation. Bit too much hops.
