4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375 ml bottle @ Timo A. Bottled on 29.07.2015.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Extremely fruity aroma, mango, orange, some lemon and pine, loads of resinous hops. Grapefruits and resinous hops on the flavor, mango, orange and mild peach notes, alcohol is extremely well hidden. Fairly light on the malt-side, still feels very heavy. Some bitter hop notes, maybe slightly too juicy but still damn tasty.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crisp copper coloured body with a thinnish tan head. Aroma of grapefruit, alcohol, oak, dry malt, resin and a good deal of cognac. Medium-bodied; Strong resinous, piney and grapefruit flavour with a good dose of malt and even more alcohol - strong, pungent and very warming. Aftertaste shows of some older hops with less alpha acids, a good deal of pine and light apricot fruits and a heavy alcohol note throughout. Overall, a good Imperial IPA, but showing too much alcohol, not enough hops and only a small level of complexity - still, it was nice to try. I sampled this 37,5 cL split bottle purchased from Pearl Specialty Market in Portland, Oregon on 04-May-2015 for US$6,46 sampled at home in Washington a few minutes after completing the USMC Marathon 2015 on 25-October-2015.

Bright, light amber. Bright mosaic aroma with light caramelly malts. Fairly chewy and strong - the alcohol is quite noticeable in the finish. Lots of mosaic, decent bitterness...pretty enjoyable.

Interesting aroma, very fruity for sure. It benefits from the ultra-high alcohol content.

Botte shared by Chaz, one of my fellow home brewers. Pours hazy gold with a big and robust foamy white head. Good lacing. Nose of triopical fruit and a funky aroma in the background. Some citrus. Medium body and a nice mouth feel. Flavor is again afunky taste and grapefruit. along with that delicious tropical fruit. Finishes with some bitterness. Interesting in many respects and really remarkably tasty. A exceptionally good beer.

Quick dissipating white frothy head atop a clear orange gold. Nose of passion and mint. Rather urinal with bandage and rubbing alcohol. Decent.
