Goodgrief (1824) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JAN 5, 2013
On tap at Pinocchio’s. Pour looks like brought apple juice. Rich, hoppy aroma. Complex hop profile...citrus, grain and resin. Melon fruitiness, good level of sweetness too balance out a fairly aggressive hop profile. Tasty.

Tap. Small ivory head, small bubbled lace. Misty orange. Shyish hoppy aroma. Fruity hoppy taste, grass, grapefruit, mango, wood. Dry oily palate and bitter dry aftertaste. Very tasty and well balanced. One of the best of the style.

Hana @ Leskinen. Kaatuu tuoppiin oranssinkultaisena ja kirkkaana, tiivis ja pysyvä vaahto on noin sormen paksuinen. Tuoksu on alkun melkoista trooppisten hedelmien (mango ja päärynä ainakin) sekä sitruksen tykitystä. Sen jälkeen tulee makeampaa vohvelimaisuutta ja hiven havuakin. Maussa iskee heti katkerot puumaisuuden ja havun muodossa, jäljessä tulee hieman sitrusta ja karamellista vohvelia. Suutuntuma on katkera, hyvin kuiva ja hyvin suussa säilyvä. Hieno hieman vahvempi IPA, jossa katkero ei hyökkää, mutta katkeropotku on todella pitkäkestoinen. Havuinen kokonaisuus. Näin humalointipainotteinen olut maistui kuitenkin enemmän IPAlta kuin DIPAlta.

Tied as one of my fav XXIPA with durado...haven’t had pliney younger, great pine tar aroma with some fresh cut grass dry grass some hints of mint. Flavor is equally as hoppy with nice alcohol warmth finishes super clean. Greatness.

PhatB420 (691) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 25, 2015
12oz into a tulip. Pours a solid oak aged orange. Head is ample, about an inch at first, then mellows to plentiful lacing all over, full and gorgeous. Aroma of fresh hops, wheat, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon. Taste is glorious hops, fresh and juicy with ample orange, some pineapple, herbal citrus glow, funky banana, soft caramel malts, and a piney lacing. Wonderful drinker, smooth throughout, flowing, and fresh. Very mellow mouth feel for an imp. Tastes like a small upgrade from an IPA, but the punch is packed in the afterglow. Wonderful

notalush (5124) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle - hazy glowing orange - fairly thick, soapy lace - dank aroma, musky citrus, mango, orange zest - soft texture, fairly full in the mouth - flavor is a fair balance of sweet orange flesh, moderate bitterness, juicy American hops character - a little sweet, but mostly a fairly classic version of imperial IPA.
