22 oz bomber. Thanks Moy! The pour is a hazy amber-ish/copper-ish gold with a nice frothy white head that fades slowly, leaving a beautiful lace. The aroma is more of a sweet hoppiness. It's got great caramel and pine notes throughout, but I'm surprised by the sweetness. The flavor is much of the same. Not as bitter as you'd like in an IPA. The balance is incredible. So smooth and a touch creamy even on the mouth feel. The flavors linger, but they're incredibly subtle. Solid, but unexpected for an imperial ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from ABC store on the Strip, Vegas - Slightly hazy old gold colour with frothy white head. Aroma of citrus hops, pine, caramel malts. Similar in the taste, nicely bitter and balanced, medium to full bodied, soft carbonation. Nice hoppy bitter finish. Very pleasant.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Fruity hop nose. Flavors of tropical fruits with some malty notes. Medium bodied, high carbonation, bitter finish.

My Bottom Line:
Tropical fruit and hop resins dive off of oily, honeyed cereals in this rich Double IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy beige-yellow.
-This is a tad too sweet for my tastes in the style.
-There is a lot of flavour in here, but brightness is lacking (if you want to consider it among the best of the best).
-A sandy cat-litter touch is felt here and there.
-The resinous bitterness is very pleasant.

Super solid. Pleasant pine citrus nose after being poured a murky orange. Many fingers of foam (so much so that I had to pause a minute so that I could finish filling my nonic pint), with persistent and expansive lacing. Slight bit of juice flavor, caramel and ice cream middle, finishes with hop bitter. Not overly bitter. Again, solid, but maybe a bit tame (flavor-wise) for an imperial.

esox (1226) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2014
Bottled. Slightly hazy, pale amber color. Thin creamy head. Floral and citrusy hop nose rich in caramel malts. Some canned peach notes. Malty flavor, but not too sweet. Slightly mineral finish. Bitterness seems a bit low, probably due to age. Round, almost full bodied, slightly flat texture.

GIJOE (1077) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Pours dark amber with a finger of tan foam that stays long. Nose is bright, floral happiness with a twist of grapefruit. Taste is bitter, but not outrageously so, on a bold malty backbone. Full body, vigorous carbonation. Quite good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mörkgul färg med en vit tunn skumkrona. Doften är liten men god. Doftar av framförallt ananas. Smaken är söt och även här känner jag ananasen. Fyllig och fin men med för liten beska i min smak. Efterbeskan är bra.
