Heavy on the hops - tropical fruits, lightly cloudy golden colour, good sized white head, a please to drink hop hop and then some more for good luck, full bodied with a some more hops to finish.

Canít believe I have never rated this legend... Pours a brilliant golden copper with a nice head that sticks around (heavy lace). Simple clean aroma profile: caramel, resin, dough, with a little woody vanilla. Taste is out of the park awesome. A perfect balance. Palate: medium body, velvet texture, soft carbonation, with an easy bitter finish. Quite an offering.

As someone who is trying to ease himself into the world of hops, I was not sure how this was gonna go. In the end I was pleased. The malty backbone eases the 90 ibus while still allowing the hops to shine. The finish is long and bitter.

This one really has to be tried to be believed. At first I thought it would be the usually over the top hop bomb that most double ipaís are but it surprised be with how well balanced it is for being both strong in the flavor of the hops which are fruity and sweet the malt is while at the same time covering the big alcohol of this beer. Absolutely delicious and should be the standard for this category.

An amber colored beer with an off-white, thin head. The aroma is not so intensive, but crispy and soury. The taste is complex, full body; crispy notes with banana and caramel. Very lond and bitter aftertaste.
Itís not the best beer that Iíve ever tasted, but good.

An impressive imperial beer, worthy of it's reputation indeed. From a bottle, this poured a beautiful and perfect bronzed amber color with a steady white foamy head and strong lacing, a pleasure to observe. This beer just looks like a refined and full flavored beverage. Aroma is appetizing also, strong and flavorful of rich candied apple malt and grapefruit hops, but some alcohol warmth from the high ABV. The taste is layered and complex, caramel malt and fruity sweet malt notes, along with some hoppy resin and tropical citrusy notes. Warming and rich throughout. Medium bodied and smooth, although some alcohol bite along with hoppy bitterness in the finish. Possibly my go-to Imperial IPA, not that I consume this style often. I found this far more enjoyable than Dogfish's renowned 120 Minute mega IPA.

35 cl bottle @ home. Pours clear golden amber with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are resin, pine, citrus, and malt - with a bitter finish.

Overall great taste. However, the after taste was a bit too bitter for my liking. Nonetheless, I highly enjoyed it.
