BBB63 (6119) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Bomber bottle and served in my GI IPA tulip: Pours a deep coppery amber with an frothy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of caramel, biscuity, bread, corn syrup, grassy and resiny hops, hint of grapefruit and peaches with some boozy notes too. While I like my beers to have some balance this is simply too malt forward, syrupy and sticky with some hop bitterness and fruity components taking a back seat. The mouth feel is lush and heavy, warming booze and a hint of metallic notes. It is what it is, a paint by numbers Midwest DIPA I have seen far too many times before.

Lemke10 (810) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 18, 2014
This pours a hazy, amber color with a froathy head. The aroma is a little malty and yeasty. Decent flavor, nothing big or bold but lots of decent flavor.

glennmastrange (2311) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, light to moderate orange peel for the hops, lightl leather for the yeast, with raisin, date, brown sugar and a hint of sulfur. Head is small, frothy, off-white with fair lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear medium amber/orange. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly aicidc, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet, acidic and bitter. Palate is medium to full, oily with a soft carbonation and a moderately alcoholic and chewy finish. An okay DIPA, it’s a slow sipper while still being an easy drinker.

ccex (942) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Bomber pours a hazy red amber color with steady, creamy off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is full of molasses and sweetness. Taste is mostly sweet and boozy, with slight citrus hops bitterness in the finish. I expected more complexity. Body is medium to full with slight carbonation and a very sticky mouthfeel. This is the most malt-forward, sweetest DIPA of many I’ve tried and slightly disappointing to me.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Amber with a slowly fading large tan head. Floral aroma of hop cones, pale malt and faint pine. Taste of fresh hops, very sweet malt, floral hops and a moderate bitter finish. Odd and not really a DIPA.

nuplastikk (4658) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Tap at Capital Ale House. Orange amber body with a steady, creamy off-white head. Sweet, very sweet, but drinkable. Imperial sugar/extract beer, but the flavor is still OK. Oily, below par for the style. Resinous. Not horrendous, not good. My numbers seem high.

kaser (2977) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Golden pour. Orange peel apricot and sweet hoppy taste. Smooth and easy drinker

Braudog (5866) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Draft at the brewery beer garden. Deep, dark bronze with a firm head. This is very rich and robust overall, presenting a thick malt, resilient hoppy character, viscous even. The first "Imperial" that lived up to its name on my visit to Wisconsin. (#5137, 7/4/2013)

Kevin (2098) - New Mexico, USA - JUL 6, 2013
bottle...from my wisconsininnnnnn connection. pours a deep ruby brown( yeah, ruby brown, it’s a color now Brad, fuck off) lasting cream colored head....smells, well of hops, for fucks sake, what else is a iipa going to smell of...yeah, cotton candy, burnt popsicle sticks and the like. so much caramel malt to balance this, that it is like chewing 5 sticks of gum at once. hop flavor is pine, and sugar coated pine. hot alcohol note at the first sip and lingers. but i need booze. i miss walt. fuck all y’all.
