A very hoppy, medium bodied IPA. High on bitterness with an aroma of toffee and grapefruit. The finish is great, but the aroma is kind of stale and flat toward the end.

Bottle - Amber in colour. Hoppy aroma with hints of grapefruit and toffee. Very hoppy taste with grapefruit and a lingering bitterness in the finish.

dirt55 (198) - Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Bottled, pours clear gold/light amber with thick brown head, huge pine and candy/fruit hop aromas with slight sweet malt noted no sticky alcohol notes that’s expected in a imperial version, overwhelming hop bitters up front And all the way through with some slight sweet malt and zero hot alcohol notes, the palate is what brings the beer down, medium body with appropriate carbonation, but 100% of palate is one note hop bitters that is akin to chewing on citrus pith, can’t taste anything else and ruins anyhing that is ate/drank with this, bored after half a pint

Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Pours a clear Orange to Gold with a White/Off White head of decent stature. Tight to loose like a sink sponge. Eventually almost milk shake-like. Aroma of mandarin oranges, passionfruit (sweet) and grapefruit. At first it is like chewing on straw moving to a grassy presence with a strong bitter grapefruit finish. Quite bitter at the end actually.

Very nice and strong simcoe aroma. Body is very thing. Decent but all too lingering bitter taste.

Ernest (6749) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2010
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (apricot, grapefruit, resin), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Ordinary, and not very "imperial" in character...pretty straightforward IPA Nice mouthfeel, though.

944play (376) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - MAR 22, 2010
12oz in bordeaux glass. Pale amber, low white head. Assertive, perfumey nose, like a bottle of Chanel spilled in a box of Earl Grey. Malt flavor is there for a moment until orangey fruit takes hold, but the pungent, peppery-bitter finish is what makes a lasting impression. Lacks the delicate, beguiling nature of B’Port IPA.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Pours a clear orange color. Moderate off-white head with good retention and lacing. Nice aroma with lots of hops--citrus, spice, floral and pine notes. Flavor caramel malt, citrus and pine. Hoppiness is not as distinct as in aroma--more bittering hops than flavor hops. Medium, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Not the best example of the style necessarily, but a very nice beer.

Tap @ TacoMac. Crabapple. Reddish, orange pour. Thin white head. Tastes like Oregon. Sweet, fruity, hoppy bitterness. Plentiful. Nice hop profile consists of loads of citrus / grapefruit, with light pine. Finishes with a touch of peppery spice. Aroma of rich malts. Sweet caramel, and loads of hops. Mostly citrus grapefruit. Hops, hops, hops. I love hops.
