This is a bit on the sweet, heavy side for a IIPA. It is very cloudy in the glass w/ a head of fine bubbles and nice patches of lace. The smell here is pleasant, floral honey notes and melon, but all together too subdued for the style. Taste follows suite w/ some simple sweet malts bringing out an orange zest character. This is full bodied w/ moderate carbonation and feels a bit sluggish across the palate. This is not really flavorful enough to be a slow sipper but is too strong and sticky to drink in quantity. It finishes w/ an earthy bitterness which helps balance that sweetness but still in a world where there are just so many good hoppy beers, I just don’t see the point of this stuff.

Suprisingly easy to drink and really tasty. Kind of dank pot flavor from the abundance of hoppy. Crisp bitter finish. Pours orange in color from a 12 oz bottle. Had at home ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy deep amber with a tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a strong sweet grain and biscuit note backed with a bit of grass and pine underlying. Flavor has bitter pine throughout with growing grass with some earthy and sweet grains underlying.

BOSSbrewer (1990) - Arkansas, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Had at their taproom in Douglas. Pours a hazy gold with a thin off white head. Aromas are predominantly pine and some citrus. Very bitter. Alcohol is evident. Decent, but not great IIPA.

AWISLguy (1423) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle from Arminetti. Pours a hazy orangey copper with a pale orange head leaving little lacing. Aroma has pine and citrus, and pine and citrus. Very spicy and over-dry-hopped aroma. Caramel pokes through eventually. Taste is of spicy pine,herbs, bitter grapefruit with some caramelly malt solidly underneath. Medium bodied and more syrupy/tangy than anything else. Finishes bitter. A big fan of over layering, but this one is salty/tangy too heavily where it was a bit hard to drink.

A decent Imperial IPA. Hops bitterness is pleasant, if a little "confused" from the different hops used. Just enough malt for my tastes, so that it doesn’t overbear the hops. The best from Saugatuck that I’ve had so far.

jtw (1115) - farmington, Michigan, USA - AUG 11, 2013
nice bright hops aroma, with plenty of green citrus and grassy, woody bitterness. some big malt and crystal caramel body and tons of hops to bitter it up. full body and a full finish but an enjoyable hops experience. nicely done but a touch on the heavy side.
