4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drinking this as I post (12 oz bottle)......this is no pretender, a double IPA just the way it should be/ resinously hoppy in aroma and taste up front. Amber with a slight haze and thin wht head with modest lacing. medium body with a long bitter finish. This is the definition of a delicious imperial IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour is a very murky dark amber color with a light tan head. Very hoppy, piney nose, lots of floral bitterness and some mango and bready malt notes. Piney hop bitterness up front on the taste, lots of sweet malt like caramel, mango, ripe banana, floral hops and a touch of citrus. Medium boded, you’d never know there was so much alcohol. Drinks more like a barleywine, and it’s quite delicious.

Bottle. 5/25/13. Pours a cloudy red-orange with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is pine, citrus, grass, caramel, spice, fruit, boozey. Taste is HUGE, highly flavorful; booze, explosion of hops, citrus, pine, grass, floral, some earthiness, caramel; incredible flavor profile. I’m surprised at the 98 IBUs. I’m very impressed with this. Beautiful lacing. Nice, chewy but light mouth feel. Medium-high carbonation. This is outstanding.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Railroad Bar and Grill. Pours a murky, sludgey yellow/brown. Ech. Aroma of citrus and booze, but mild booze. Mouthfeel is thick, but lighter than I’d expect for a 13% IIPA. Actually very drinkable for the size. Bit too much carbonation. Taste is hardcore citrus. Grapefruit, orange, lime, pineapple, zest, pith and all. Mildly warm, but not hot for a 13%. Actually, pretty easy to drink without being too heavy or syrupy. Good beer, probably better than the rating would suggest.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark reddish orange amber. Small creamy off-white head diminishing to a soapy retention. Aroma is thick malt, hops, dark fruity, caramel, grapefruit - sweet. Flavor adds some spiciness. Medium to full body. Sticky to creamy. Mellowed hop bitter finish with Pleasant alcohol warming. Definite barley wine qualities.

Strong aroma-malts, dark fruit, caramel, hops. Grapefruit.
Strong flavor, but remarkably light and smooth. Hops, grapefruit, ends a bit bitter, with an alcohol warming effect..

Wow, I love this beer. It is what a IPA (or double IPA) should be. It will kick your ass and you will say, "Thank you sir may I have another." The answer its, "hell no, you are worthy". Wwwell,the truth is with a 13.6 ABV one is all you need. The color is not so good. A bright translucent orange. So what, it is a great beer.
