E_leap (11) - Wollongong, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2016
Bottle: Its a very decent imperial IPA, the mouthfeel is rather refined , aroma like burnt orange skin, sweet, and very well balanced to the IBU, I think alot of people would love ending their meal with this beer, sharing it with mates, and those who dont belong to the table at 3am !!

Nose is very ’citrusy’ Pour is a creamy brown frothy head. Color is amber/brown. Wonderfully heavy hopped flavor that is balanced with a very generous amount of malt.

anstei (1016) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 13, 2016
Bottle from Drinks of the World. More tropical and intense than the 60. Still mostly on the sweet-bitter side. I like my hops to be lighter. And my aromas to have more complexity. Certainly a good IPA, not quite as impressive as I was hoping for.

Scotchy (23) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2016
This is an absolutely perfect Imperial IPA. It is not bitter for bitterness sake. It is well balanced with malt and has a constant flow of hops added to give it real hop complexity in flavour, bitterness and aroma. Perfect.

canadiankiwi (139) - NEW ZEALAND - MAR 10, 2016
Poured from bottle a clear almost gold colour. This smells great. It taste great. You can tell its high alcohol content but still an enjoyable drink. Caramel notes and a malt feel. Not a large hop proportion
