Bottle. This one is wonderful. a hop-heads dream (which i am). just enough alcohol flavor, just enough bitterness, just enough aftertaste. will be a tough one to top.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2006 Slightly clouded golden-orange, large and long lasting white head. Pine tree and fruity nose. Thatís one fruity IPA. Tangerines, grapefruit, oranges, etc. Very sweet. Juicy hops. As with too many high abv IPAs, the alcohol kills the hops bitterness. Oily body and medium-soft carbonation. Not my favourite Imperial IPA but nonetheless a beer Iíd like to have as often as something I shouldnít mention here. On tap at Dieu Du Ciel (special importation).

If you like hops this is the one for you. Complex and aromatic with a nice finish.

12oz bottle. Pours a dark gold-copper with a thin head. Not sure what I was expecting but it certainly wasnít this type of craftsmanship. Hops and malt work perfectly together giving this a smooth quality that mellows the high alcohol content.

Heard this was great. I thought it was bitter with too much of a hop flavor. It has a nice aroma and looks great in the glass, but tastes like there is a shot of vodka in there with a bush of hops.
Paid $9 for 4 pack at Kappys and still have 2 in the frig. They wonít stay in there forever, even bad beer is still pretty good.

Bottle. Pours a dark gold with a full white head. Excellent lacing on the glass. The aroma is full of citrus, pine, and floral notes. The taste is amazing. I was worried with the dry hopping that I would be overwhelmed with hops, but this beer has excellent balance. Donít get me wrong, my palate was blasted with hops by the time I was done, but this beer is very well put together. Excellent IPA.

Dark golden color. Thick head with slight retention. Loads of lacing all the way down the glass. Smell is all HOP OIL! Also some leafy hops follow with a smooth malt balance. Good spicy hop flavor. Really thick yet smooth feel. Easy to drink. I wish I could get enough of this to drink it all night. Thanks to Mike Brawley for carrying this gem!
