Dry hopped with whole leaf hops from the Yakima Valley, combined with Maris Otter English barley, which is floor-malted in age old tradition. A long maturation ensures plenty of flavour, with strong aromatics of grapefruit, tangerine and mango.

Imperial IPA for Autism: Strong citrus and spicy pine hop notes complement the thick chewy toffee and caramel malt aromas in the nose. Clear burnished copper coloured body is topped by a decent off white head that recedes to cover with some lacing. Flavour features all the elements of the aroma but comes down a bit on the sweet side. Medium body is slightly watery with somewhat low carbonation. I’d prefer stronger carbonation or a thicker maltiness to take this to the next level. Tulip glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle purchased at Crosstown Liquor Store downtown in March 2013.

Light amber beer with a thick frothy white head that sets up in peaks. Resinous nose of pine, spruce, and musky herbs. Flavor follows the nose as an oily bitterness coats the tongue with flavors of citrus pith, wood sap, and an underlying caramel sweetness that is hard to pick out beneath all the hops. Solid beer.

Bomber. Pours a copper orange with an off white head and resin, pine aroma. Taste is bitterness up front, with resin, pine, hops, and caramel leading to a dry, bitter finish.

Pours deep amber into a snifter. Tan head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Sour caramel aromas. Thick with bitter sourdough, toffee and roasted nuts upfront turning to bitter resin and pith in the lasting finish. Perhaps this bottle has been on the shelf too long....

Un peu trop sucré mais reste un bière buvable. Bien houblonné mais rien pour se démarquer de ses semblables.

sebletitje (8022) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2015
66cl bottle courtesy of and shared with Tderoeck. Cuivrée, col fin beige. Arôme est malté, houblonné tropical, note d’agrumes avec un bouquet houblonné de type C. Palais est malté, cara et pâle/ambré, pas mal de belles notes d’agrumes, amertume moyenne avec un côté de pamplemousse et orange sanguine. Malt et léger caramel perdurent en fin de bouche.

X (137) - California, USA - JUN 19, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2015 Very malt forward IPA with a significant caramel character. Hops were faded and piney. I think that I may have an old bottle, note to rerate when I get a known fresh bottle. My bottle clearly says the ABV is 6.5% Not an imperial by a longshot--feedback sent
