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

Bottle on Acela train. I’ve had this beer many, many times. Very good. Nose is hoppy and pine. Taste is lots of hops but really well balanced. Very smooth texture and enjoyable. Smooth and creamy in the delectable finish.

Hopmaestro (474) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2015
Aroma is malty and hoppy with citrus and oranges. Some pineoil breaks through. Deep malts. Taste is sweet with caramels, pine needles and gentle hops falling from the sky in the end. Dry ending and pleasant bitterness. A superb Imperial Ipa.

Absolutely the perfect IPA. Draft or bottle, doesn’t much matter. Clean, crisp taste, mild hops, and amazing finish.

2014-10-19 Bottle. Pours copper in color with a white head. Piny, citrus aroma, slightly weak (probably by the age of the beer). Good malty base over hoppy, bitter finish.

bartzluke (329) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 22, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2015 12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into Spiegelau IPA glass. Moderate fluffy white head with nice retention and lacing. A bit opaque. Golden. Nose is citrus, pine, and malt. Mouthfeel is fairly creamy. Crisp. Taste is complex. Buttery, piney, citrus (strong orange and tangerine). Strong malty backbone balances well all the aggressive hops. There’s a lot going on here, but it never feels like too much. Awesome IPA.

TheSilentSaint (98) - Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2015
Pours dark clear orange. Hops with fruity aromas. Tastes hops and fruits like pineapple. Hops bitterness is balanced with malts. Not a true IPA but tastes really good! Edited: additional spicey taste of cinnamon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow, the malt bill just about makes this well balanced, but this is a full on beer, hitting you with hops and abv.

One of my favorites. Usually I prefer my hoppier IPAs and the West Coast styles, but the 90 minute is a malty work of beauty in my eyes. Slightly harsh in the finish, but thats really the only downside in my mind; Deliciously balanced and an exemplary imperial IPA overall. Sadly hard to find on tap here however!
