An Our mission for this Imperial or ’Double’ India Pale Ale is to overload the beer with hops for an intense hop bitterness, flavor and aroma while still being balanced by a big malt profile, resulting in a hoppy beer with more dimension. This beer is light copper in color with some hop haze from overloading with dry hops as well. World Beer Championships Award: Bronze Medal 2011

AnokaBrewer (116) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Full hoppy aroma, poured amber with a nice head on it that did dissipate. Not a lot of carbonation, but enough. Sweet with a bitter finish that does not linger too long.

sonnycheeba (4501) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Can. Pours clear copper. Aroma is floral and citrus hops, bready malts, soft booze, and soft cherries. Flavor is dry and nicely balanced between the sweet malt character and the hop bitterness with some light boozy character. Medium body.

Zeswaft (1505) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Can. Aromaless but possibly medicinal. Flavor is somewhat overwhelming. Alcoholic, tropical with a little bit of coconut sweetness. Will pour out the rest.

pictoman (825) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
Poured from 355mL can. Clear, copper brown with off-white head. Mild resinous hops, a little vegetable and subtle sweet malt, quite a bitter finish. Flavour dissipates a little quickly though.

maxwelldeux (4219) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2015
Can. Pours a slightly cloudy amber color with a moderate frothy light tan head on there. Nose is noticeably hoppy and sweet, and has some resiny notes to it. Taste is a bit bitter, but the hops have clearly turned, and does not seem fresh. Bleh.

12 oz Can. Dark amber color with some gold hues. Big fluffy white head, dissipates somewhat quickly. Hoppy nose, cantaloupe and pine. Tart flavor, not sure on first sip if I love it. It is good, not great. There isn’t a tremendous amount going on flavor wise, but the maltiness is a but off putting for my palate. I have no issue with this, but it isn’t memorable.

shrubber85 (9454) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 6, 2015
Can. Lightly funky orange malt and orange peel/pine aroma. Cooper with small head. Sweet earthy orange malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Good body. Pretty tasty.

dinkle50 (1182) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Orange pour with a huge head. Aroma of tropical fruit and hints of caramel. Booze is pretty forward and has a bite to it. Some juicy citrus notes and some pineapple. Medium mouth.
