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.

This is an excellent IPA with balanced aromas of pine and resin, and a flavor that is both bitter and sweet. The alcohol is mostly hidden in the rich, full palate. This IPA is very enjoyable and interesting. Highly recommended.

As Mr President. Pours cloudy copper with low white head. Aroma of resin, toffee, grapefruit, citrus. Taste is rich resin bitter up front and through to the finish. Medium bodied, smooth, with soft carbonation.

Moravius (1063) - Beijing, CHINA - JUL 23, 2016
Flasche (33 cl) aus dem Sanlitun Friendship Store, Peking. - Orangebraun, trüb. - In der Nase kräftige aber gediegene IPA-Hopfenaromen: Mango, Harz, ein Hauch von Pfeffer. - Antrunk schwer und massiv karamelmalzig-malzsüß mit wuchtiger harzig-herber Hopfung. Sahniges Mundgefühl, ölige Schwere. Im Abgang lang nachhallende harzige Bittere. - Strenges, wuchtiges IPA; einwandfrei aber ein wenig seelenlos.

nutjes (67) - 8904, BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2016 33cl-fles van bij Bierhalle Deconinck te Vichte. U: licht wazig oranje-amber met zeer kleine crèmekleurige schuimkraag G: citrus, abrikoos en wat sinaasappelzeste S: bittere aanzet die mooi samengaat met de fruitigheid. In de afdronk opnieuw een sterke nabitterheid. Lekkere IPA!

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2016 Strong pine aroma, toffee, tropical fruits notes. Small head, hazy amber. Medium sweet and a little more bitter, bitter finish and lasts long. Medium body.

uckelman (576) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2016
Copper colored, clear. Just a ring of head. Lots of floral and marmalade aroma. Medium-full body. The alcohol comes through close to the beginning, which is a bit disappointing---it would be better if that came out as warmth only at the end.

Zekso (15) - POLAND - JUL 10, 2016
Ładne bursztynowe piwo z bogatą pianą, aromat jest co prawda świetny bogaty we wszelkie cytrusowe i tropikalne klimaty a także trawę i owoce - niestety smak mnie nieco przeraził. W piwie jest co prawda dużo chmielu ale jego ilość wprowadza lekkie przesycenie i nuty korzeniowe z przechmielenia. Piwo ma jedną podstawową wadę jest mało pijalne. Mimo swego bogactwa doznań. Z drugiej strony to Hardcore IPA więc może tak to ma wyglądać właśnie:)

kathouse (1544) - Nevada, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Pours a pretty amber with a foamy head. Nice grapefruit and citrus aroma. Bittery citrus that’s very dry. Like eating the rind of the fruit. Finish is not to my liking.

GoddamnNoise (31) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - JUL 6, 2016
Aroma: great and intense aroma of fruits (maybe mango, pineapple), hops, citrus. No hints of alcohol. Appearance: nice golden color, above average head thickness, almost white creamy head with average retention and a little Brussels’ lace. Hazy. Taste: light sweetness, heavy bitterness, no sourness. Palate: light-to-medium body, oily texture, soft-to-average carbonation, long bitter, dry, fruity and a little citric finish. Overall: a lot of nice fruity aromas and great appearance. Nice fruity (grapefruit?), hoppy flavors with a loooooong bitter and pleasant finish. Very well balanced, the alcohol is hidden behind the bitterness and even the warning effect seems it doesn’t exist despite the high level of alcohol. An amazing beer.

ClearHead (4) - FINLAND - JUL 5, 2016 does not count
Bottle 330ml from the local alco monopoly. Nice amber color, good lacy head. Pleasant fruity aroma, some pine. Taste fairly sweet, mango, grapefruit. Pine again. Hoppiness surprisingly balanced, lingers with a slight dryness. Smooth, alcohol is well hidden. Well worth the highly taxed Finnish price. Probably one bottle at a time is sufficient though. Will buy another one eventually, thats for sure.
