This Imperial India Pale Ale is loaded with hops. A combination of spicy, citrus and herbal hopes deliver lots of bitterness while our blend of Marris otter, Caramel 120, and a hint of roasted barley malt lend a supporting backbone to this highly hopped IPA.

EithCubes (5616) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 6, 2016
Can. Nose heavy pine, a little woodsy/herbal, caramel; pour dark and murky orange getting too close to brown, with a dense and foamy tan head. Taste is somewhat dry and strongly bitter, clean all the way through though a dash airy, low-medium resin but it lingers (and the finish and after are salty), fresh and bright lemony citrus but that’s bludgeoned by the caramel. Malt stands up but the hops are all English-herbal, alcohol somewhat well-incorporated. Very grassy and a little green, rough, and a little warming in the end. [2016.09.06: 2.9]

JStax (5214) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2016
Can from phaleslu. The can is swollen and difficult to pour from once opened. Huge head keeps me from pouring more than a little bit at a time. Aroma is yeasty and resinous. Some dry pine. A bit sweet. Fairly yeasty. Big body and medium carbonation. Something is off with this one.

phaleslu (9380) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2016
12 oz. can from Hyde Park Wine & Spirits. Pours a hazy, dull dark orange with yeast floaters and a massive khaki head, gigantic, that takes a long time to settle into an uneven small head and heavy lace. Head looks like a bucket of soap suds. Notes of apples, leaves, grass, toasted and nutty malts, dead flowers, and earth. Medium-bodied, with medium carbnoation and a bitter, earty, damp mouthfeel. Has a general vibe of deadness. Pretty new can but could’ve been mistaken for years old. Just not a good DIPA.

cheap (5307) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Can. terribly freaken on style nards narg knop. Nasty nellie rototiller. What else can be said. I had a whole paragraph written but some fricken thing caused me to lose it, go figger.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
rondphoto (4057) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 30, 2016
can @ Belmont Party Supply / Dayton OH --- Aroma of sweet malt and tropical hops. Nearly clear dark amber, beige head that drops to a cover, bands of lace. Caramel malt pushes easily through medium fizz to solid tropical citrus hops in a long smooth finish. I can’t believe this is 8.3%. Solid and balanced, complex enough to stay interesting, and finally, halfway through the can I am getting some alcohol.

superspak (4666) - Michigan, USA - JUL 16, 2016
12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 4/18/2016. Pours hazy/cloudy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and compelxity of citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon/orange rind, pine, toasted bready, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and fairly creamy/grainy balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice DIPA. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Nephilium (1693) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Earthy aroma, with a hint of pine and caramel. Pours a nearly opaque amber, with a dusting of off white head. Full bodied, with a slightly sweet start, which switches over to citrus and bitter hops to finish. The alcohol is very well hidden, although the body keeps this one a sipper. Overall, a nice drinkable IIPA.
