COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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 (1659) - 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.

Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. This is a good brew.

CardsPackHawks (172) - South Elgin, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2015
Stopped by this small place while on spring break in Dayton. Not bad, but the aroma had a funk that is a little odd. The flavor is not bad, but that smell...

Dogbrick (11168) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Sample at the tap room. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes quickly to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, caramel malt and a touch of pine. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
