COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Light aroma with hint of hops. Light yellow in color with light cloudiness. Hoppy start, mild bitterness. Fades on the finish, lingering malt ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

willisread (2040) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 21, 2016
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a clear orange with a finger of head that dissipates fairly quickly. Some tropical notes along with pine and citrus. Boozy on the palate with pithy bitterness and some pine. A little bit of tropical notes. Finish is boozy and bitter with lots of lingering sweet malts. I don’t hate it by any means, but just a really average double IPA.

Wonderful aroma. I got it served in a bottle 0.33. I was bit dissapointed with a palate which was somewhat confusing and suggary but all in all very crafty bier.

An ok IPA. Please an ugly yellow with a white head. Smells nice, fruity with some tropical flavors. Taste starts hoppy, but then fades to nothing, bit of creamy fruity finish. Had on tap at Hopmonk.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6372) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2016
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a vibrant peach-gold color with a medium sized foamy white head that left great lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy tropical fruit and a bit of pine. The flavor was tangy and sweetish with tropical fruit, pine and a hint of a medicinal note. Long finish with a growing alcohol presence. Moderately full bodied. Good.

hapjydeuce (996) - Carlsbad, California, USA - APR 2, 2016
Bottled; light gold in color, low carbonation. Small white foam cap. Nose is apricot, grapefruit and resist Amarillo hops. Smells delicious. Flavor doesn't deliver up to the aroma but still tasty nevertheless. Sweet malts, orange juice, pine sap. Finishes sweet and not dry enough for my taste. Warming alcohol. It's OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

solid beer. not sure it is worthy of its title. there are no socks being knocked off here. it is a very smooth offering for such a high ABV. beer pours a nice yellowish color. it has very little aroma to it. and the taste is slightly citrusy. not a bad offering, worth a purchase, but needs to be more hoppy.

jehoesefat (359) - Poway, California, USA - MAR 21, 2016
UPDATED: APR 4, 2016 Piney citrus aroma. Pours clear orange with a white head. Good bitter hop flavor with some fruitiness behind it, goes down refreshing.
