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, itís an India Pale Ale truly deserving of its imperial crown.

Tortman18 (174) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a small, frothy white head. A moderate amount of lacing. Nose has a lot of resin, citrus and tropical fruits with a pleasant spiciness. Mouth is delicious. A lot of grapefruit and pineapple with caramel and some creamy malts. A lot of bitterness that lingers for a bit, but its not overpowering. Smooth finish.

fiulijn (16395) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2015
Bottle from Granville Liquor, Vancouver
Golden color with fine perlage. Strong aroma of piney hops and cereals. Different from most other IIPAs for being much drier; the mouthfeel is soft; the pale malt is as usual a good choice, with bready and biscuity notes; the hopping squeezes all the qualities out of those hops. Highly drinkable.

gripweed57 (946) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Amber orange with a moderate foamy white head and clinging lace. Perfumy toasted malt nose with lots of pine needle hops. Flavor is malty sweet with caramel and toasted nuts. Bittersweet on the tongue with a subtle alcohol burn. Pine hops are prominent in the finish. A nice IIPA.

Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is citrus and pine. Taste is straightforward citrus and prime again. Nice toffee malt body, a very classic American Double IPA.

keepersj12 (2916) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 19, 2015
The aroma is malty sweet with the citrus and pine wafting in. The flavor is malty sweet with some caramel. The citrus and pine comes in at the back. A slight burn on the throat lets you know it's got a kick. Crisp and clean finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jdjuice (432) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JUN 13, 2015
Pours a pretty pale gold with white soapy head. Aroma is piney, peppery, tequila-like, earthy. Really smooth, pleasant mouthfeel, clean and strong hops that are very earthy and floral. Pretty nice, rather unique hop balance, dangerously drinkable.

Flavor is a mix of sticky malt and sticky hop, malt and honey, pine and soap, some dried orange, some herb, a little tropical fruit, dried pineapple. Full, sticky finish.
