Great beer. Very little alcohol taste even though it has 9% It is moderatly hoppy and pours a nice yellow-orange. Citrus flavors dominate, but in a good crisp way. Drink 4 of these and you should be VERY happy!

Amber, slightly cloudy. Really great balanced beer. A fruity maltiness gives way to good hop character. Not super hopped though. This is a really excellent drinkable beer.

Delicious IPA. Head and color something darker than pale. Strong barley-malt flavor with hints of toffee and a hoppy finish. The most surprising thing about this beer is the heaviness of the lace. Great value.

This beer was surprisingly sweet. It reminded me very much of Dogfish’s Raison D’etre. When I tried it beer for the first time I found myself savoring it so much that it went from ice cold out of the liquor store cooler to room temperature in my hand. Where that can be a killer with some beers this one took on a whole new interesting flavor, resembling the drinking of a really nice liquor neat. If one does not normally like the intense bitterness that IPAs offer, this is definitely worth a try. Not your common IPA by any means, but definitely now one of my favorites.

13 bucks for a 4pack!!!! SO WHAT, this my friends is arguably hands down the best (readily available in most areas) IPA in America! this IPA is simply PACKED with hops and really opens up the nasal path quick! this one hits you hard and tastes extreme hops and leaves you wanting more and searching for a better IPA in america! is there one???

Wonderful flavour. Possibly a little high on the malt flavour, but the hops definitely come through. The alcohol content doesn’t overpower.

A big beer with a big head. Has many citrus notes that compliment the extreme hops. While not a fan of strong hops flavor, it’s a stand-up beer worth trying.

One of my two favorite Imperial IPA’s. Whenever I want to splurge a little, it is between 90 minute and Stone Ruination.
