Very good double IPA does not fall into the hop trap IIPA's normally do. Balance is the biggest asset this beer has. Color needs a little work, but overall this is a great beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to madbeerbaron. Pours clear orange with a small beige head and good lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine, passionfruit, a touch of cat piss. Flavor is the same, light sweet, medium bitter, with a touch of dankness that I enjoy in my IPAs. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Definitely a hop bomb, but a well crafted one IMO.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle courtesy of bytemesis. Pours golden orange with a slight haziness. Very little carbonation. Bright citrusy aroma but it is not strong. Lots of bitterness from the hops, mix of citrus and pine, more pine in the finish. This is nice if you are looking for an intense hop fix but it lacks the sophistication of the best DIPAs.

Pours dark tan with only a bit of head. Lots of hops on the nose with notes of grapefruit, orange, and a bit of resin. The taste was a great balance of sweet and bitter with a crisp finish to make for a very delicious beer

Citrus and pine nose and likewise taste. Very hoppy and bitter yet has some sweetness. Really solid 2x ipa.

Very hoppy aroma, smells sweet and piney. A well balanced double IPA that is obviously bitter, but surprisingly sweet. I could imagine this beer being paired with something like baked goat cheese with honey. One of my favorite double IPA’s.

Super hazy deep honey coloured body with a bright copper glow and a gold tint, all with a two centimetre thick dense off-white head. Aroma of pungent pine and very resinous hops with a hint of citrus and a lot of malt and alcohol perceptible. Full-bodied; Strong dense malt flavour with a good sweet and resinous flavour with a ton of piney, herbal, grassy and almost sprucey hop flavour - the hops really shine here. Aftertaste is very well balanced with a bunch of sweetness, a lot of malt punch, a good note of alcohol and the hop bitterness which dominates even 5 minutes after a sip. Overall, a great Imperial IPA - definitely one worth trying if you can find it! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Discount Liqour in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on 05-September-2012 for US$2.99 sampled at home in Washington on 02-December-2012.
