A big beer with a great malt backbone that stands up to the extreme hopping rate. This beer is an excellent candidate for use with Randall The Enamel Animal! 90 ibu

Had this several times, but finally getting to rate it. Cloudy sunshine in a bottle. Lots of pine, pineapple, and citrus aroma leads into a medium body. Hops are spicy, sweet, and dank without being too bitter or grassy. Nice beer.

colui72 (415) - HONG KONG - NOV 3, 2015
Crystal clear amber with a beautiful creamy head. Aroma is sweet English malts and some hops. Malts are the backbone of this beer, very British, and the hops aren’t as strong as expected. A very tasty beer, but not what I expected from an Imperial IPA.

Growler - Very clear color, cross between a golden color and amber color with leaning more towards gold. Slight alcohol smell with a hint of hops on the nose. Alcohol taste with this one at 9% ABV. Not as much bitterness as I would expect from this one and a healthy amount of sweetness from the malt. Actually more sweetness than I was expecting from this imperial.

Pours copper color with white head. Medium body. Initial hop taste, bitter but not overpowering. Malty, caramel, peaches and raisins fruits. Finishes with a string fruits flavor with very little hoppy taste. One if the greats.

Nice aroma of pine and hops with some hints of lemon./citrus. Nice clear amber color/ thin tan head. Nice rich malt up front, sweet caramel. Nice bitterness sets in. Fresh hoppy flavors noticeable. Some warm alcohol burn on the finish. Nice balance. Crisp mouthfeel. Solid.

mezr (66) - California, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Remarkably clear, copper color. Aroma is of pine and citrus, though not as strong as I anticipated. Nice, full body, slightly thick for an IPA. Really enjoy that. Sticky on the lips ... always a welcome trait.

I’ve been enjoying this for years, including having a sixtel keg as my first on my kegerator. Into a Delirium Noel glass, pours gold with head and lace. Aroma of light malts, grains, slight fruit rind, fresh bread. Medium carbonation and significant mouthfeel. Flavors of rich grains, white grapefruit rind, straw hops, light malts, slight citrus and spice. Overall full bodies, flavorful, and quite tasty.
