Amarillo, Centennial, Columbus and Simcoe hops unite to produce an immensely floral, botanical nose and a veritable explosion of citrus and pine on the palate. With an even more obscene hop overload than our infamous Idiot IPA, it’s an India Pale Ale truly deserving of its imperial crown.

Idiosynkrasie (5327) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2015
355ml bottle. Barely clear, faint, yellow-ish golden colour with small thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, snow-white head. Citrusy and piney hoppy aroma is condensed like astronaut nutrition, only some sugary and zesty lemon flavours evade this black hole’s almond malty gravity centre’s grasp. Taste is pungent bitter hoppy, citrusy, minimally chalky and zesty lemon notes; full-bodied, forthright, well set up - but tolerable without garter.

Draught @ Bier-Bier, Helsinki. Pours orange with a smooth head. Aroma of tartish fruits, mild sourness, caramely malts and citrus. Taste is malty, caramely and mildly sour with some fruits and grassy hops. Finish is tartish and malty with some mild sourness. Feels a bit off. Will have to re-rate.

ajnepple (4074) - Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2015
12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits into a pint glass. Light orange and pretty clear appearance with a fluffy white head and sticky lacing. Aroma of musty hop resin, bread, earthy yeast, pine, floral notes, light citrus fruits and light herbs. Similar flavor, piney, resinous and bitter, a little unpleasant. Medium plus body with a light sweet finish. Possibly a little dated and kind of hard to drink. Pairing: Widespread Panic - Hatfield, Knocking ’Round The Zoo, from 09/10/92, Monsoons, Flagstaff, AZ

jgb9348 (5231) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2015
Crisp, slightly hazy golden and honey coloured body with a nice, dense, three centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of tropical and hybrid hops with a good dose of biscuits and malt right behind. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong hoppy flavour at first with resin, pineapple, passionfruit, guava, flowers and a little malt as well noticeable. Aftertaste is a good balance between sweet, hoppy and malty with perhaps more of the finish showing sugar qualities rather than hops. Overall, a nice beer that shows quite nicely and mellow, especially considering the alcohol. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 05-July-2015 for US$3,99 sampled at home in Washington on 20-October-2015.

Lagerboy (1658) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2015
Bomber. Clear orange yellow, firm white foam settles and mostly lasts. Aroma of forest fruity hop, faintly floral. Initially bitter citric forest fruit taste, softens quickly, becomes more juicy tropical fruity, leaner caramel malts, very sneaky ABV, but pretty easy for an Impy. Aveage carbonation, medium bodied, well hopped. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Beaver (1507) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 30, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours clear straw gold with a big creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet fruity piney resiny hops over some bready malts.

The flavor is biscuity malt with some sweet fruit and bitter tarry floral resiny hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, an OK DIPA.
