An excellent Imperial IPA; everything I look for in this kind of beer. Very bitter but balanced nicely with the slightly sweet malt. Big frothy white head. Clean finish. Very good beer.

Great IPA. Stable and secure. I can depend on this one. This is your straight shooter IPA! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VinegarStroke (354) - Napa, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Tap: medium caramel red. Light head but good lace. Malt driven with medium to low level of hops. Caramel flavor. Initially there is an unpleasant chemical lift. I canít let that go. Other than that, the beer is rich balanced.

SG111 (811) - New York, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Fairly hazy golden color. Small head. Aroma is lots of West coast hops and tropical fruits. Pine, mango, peach, pineapple. Awesome smell. Flavor is dank, pineapple, sort of a sweet sugar, candied orange, and some more peach. Not too bitter or hoppy but itís there. A little soapy. Wow, this reminds me of Pliny actually minus the soap. This is a great beer.

fiulijn (17494) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2015
Bottle from Firefly, Vancouver
Hazy, or cloudy, bright copper color with compact head. The aroma is not very fresh, there is some hop, resins, orange peel, and a hint of vegetables. Thee mouthfeel is bold, lean, soft; moderately sweet, nice malt and caramel flavor (a bit old style on this), and a strong orange peel hopping.
Good beer, maybe not fresh.

12 oz bottle. Brownish orange pour with a short but lingering off white head. Aroma is grapefruit, resin, spruce, and dried apricot. Tastes of tangerines, mango, heavy with resin. Medium body and carbonation. Finishes bitter and sticky.

MSBrindbergs (654) - Solna, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2015
Flaska på Chicken Bar. Dimmig bärnsten med vitt skum. Mycket söta dofter av övermogen frukt och låda. Något översöt i smaken som inte möts tillräckligt av beskan, men nära! Balanserar på gränsen till dipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TXBadger (2230) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy darker golden color with white head. Pine, citrus, and floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with citrus and pine, a little grass too. Decent, but mostly average DIPA.
