COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops climb up twine that’s just loosely tied to the trellis with a half hitch knot— and this Imperial IPA is just loosely tied to tradition. The Mosaic hop imparts surprisingly floral aromas instead of the more expected grapefruit-y notes. On the palate, complex layers of flavors might remind you of guava, mango, stone fruit and lemon, unraveling your idea of what an Imperial IPA should be.

Sarlacc83 (1366) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Tap at Tin Bucket A: Clear gold, bubbles wandering from bottom to top, white head. N: Orange peel, marijuana, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, cotton candy. T: Big sweetness, similarly large bitterness. M: Boozy and very resinous, heavy body, crisp carbonation. O: An intense DIPA. I admit that I had a poor opinion of Crux before this and Outcast, but I’ll have to check out their other beers before I make a final pronouncement - because this is rather good.

12.7 oz, bottled 3/3/15. Misty yellow orange with a pocked white head. Nose is lemon basil, green onion and mango. Medium body with a tingle. Taste is grass, pine, peach and earth. A lot of funky bitterness but only a trace of fruit.

3fourths (8603) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2015
Bottle. Clear gold with a white head. Aroma impression is soap and limoncello and pineapple and flowers, butterscotch, green pine, moss, and honey. Medium-full body, sticky and a bit warm, sharp in the mouth with a precise bite in the finish. Carbonation is somewhat low leaving it sticky and sugar in the mouth, and the warming alcohol is instantly felt in the head. A couple hours after first pouring, at room temperature, it’s downright awful... astringent in the mouth, sour finish, smells like disinfectant and pee and limoncello.

krumbum (707) - truckee, California, USA - APR 26, 2015
Very fruity hop aromas. Glowing orange yellow with thin head. Warm sweet woody hop flavor. It finishes with a warm grain aftertaste.

375ml bottle. Floral hop aroma with tropical fruit and lemony citrus notes. Pours clear golden colored with a medium soapy white head with good retention and lacing. Starts with good floral flavors as well as some tropical and stone fruit flavors. Finishes dry with juicy fruit as well as lemony citrus in the slightly bitter finish. Nice ipa.
