Quite a grassy bitter taste. The different hop varieties meld together really well to create a sweet resiny pine taste. You wouldnt guess it was an imperial until a few beers in.

I really loved this ipa it was hoppy and floral right up front but didn’t linger too long. It came in a 22 ounce bottle and that was more than plenty

From 32GP. In Teku glass. After dinner. BBF this month. Still pretty good. To repeat fresher. Tropical fruits with a remarkably bitter dry finish. Very resinous

Tognetta (702) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - JUL 30, 2016
Ambar de leve turbidez, espuma amarelada de boa formação e persistência. Aroma remete a pinho, resina, caramelo, álcool perceptível. No paladar dulçor prevalesce sobre o amargor. Corpo médio e baixa/média carbonatação. Final lembra a abacaxi maduro, pinho e caramelo bem semelhantes às impressões iniciais, média persistência.

Tasted from draft. Pours a copper orange with a white head. Aroma is orange, pine, tropical fruits. Taste is moderate to heavily bitter. Complex flavors of citrus and tropical fruit with some pine, resin, earthy notes, caramel and toffee. Well done imperial IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lello4ever (631) - ITALY - JUL 16, 2016
Bionda, limpida, schiuma frizzantina. Aroma floreale. Palato inizia con malto e subito equilibra la parte amara del luppolo, bella fruttata e floreale. Piacevole.

Taboada (885) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUL 4, 2016
Tasted from the tap on the 02/07/2016. Bright orange to amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of hops, resin and plenty of citrus. Taste is sweet, malty, hoppy and citrus with medium intense bitter finish. Aftertaste is medium dry. Next one please!

Cybercat (5054) - Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear bubbly amber with a nice eggshell head. Aroma delivers strong sweet orange, woody hop, and lightly toasted malt notes. Flavor is - WOW, super hoppy, resiny and evergreen, with Mandarin orange and malt providing supporting notes. Bitterness is firm but not fierce. Mouthfeel presents firm body and lively, lasting fizz. Don’t be an idiot - try one!
