Deep golden with an off white head - Good malt and hop aroma with hints of fruity notes - Malt ot support a nice hop profile that gives a decent bitterness - Long lasting hop finish that has some dry bitterness - This was nice

Probada draft en Barcade Chelsea. Imperial IPA que deja un sabor en el paladar solo comparable con probar un pedazo de cielo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

9% ABV. Imperial IPA. Poured of the bottle a deep rich amber, 16-18ºSRM. Nose was full of fresh roasted malty flavors. Sweet but not cloying. Not much in the nose to suggest that this is an IPA. Heavy soapy, syrupy mouthfeel, this is an homage to the very best quality barley malt that started this whole brew. All that sugar contributed to the robustly alcoholic palate that is gradually scrubbed off by progressively bitter herbaceous and eventually almost bright citrus hops. Finishes with a palate that is like sweet tangerine peel. Sweet and bitter at the same time, like getting French-kissed and then bitten on the lip. Perfectly balanced. Again, the fact that this is an IPA slowly reveals itself in a most engagingly intriguing and painfully teasing fashion. A artfully choreographed brewing striptease. A wondrous effort by the fine folks at Doghead Fish. Goes on Favorites List big time (top 10) although the one that I had wasn’t perfectly fresh!!!

I don’t know if there’s a protocol that says, don’t review the style, review the beer, but I gave this one a shot not realizing that it’s a barley wine (or very close to one) a style I can’t tolerate. Too malty, too sweet, too hoppy, too strong, too winey (port or sherry), too over the top, too unrelated to what I actually like, i.e., beer. I like the DH 60 minute, I like strong IPA’s (Southern Tiers 2X, Lagunitas Maximus and so on) but really cannot handle this overcooked beer soup.

Bière de couleur ambrée caramel très limpide et gazeuse avec une mousse légèrement tenace Olé va sentir des notes d’agrumes mais aussi sucré comme le caramel la cassonade les écorces de pamplemousse les fruits exotiques En bouche on va sortir les saveur très fruitée un peu comme le raisin ou la pomme avec une amertume assez franche C’est une super bonne bière est assez complexe à expliquer

Hard to find fault with this one. Stronger tasting than I usually like but in a good way. One my favourites list for sure!

Sjohnh (484) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Let’s start with the easy bit. It looks like a DIPA: rusty orange, white head, good lacing. Full bodied. Powerful and boozy. Now the trickier bit. This is a very different IPA. It’s like the last two thirds of a "normal IPA", with the caramel malt and bitter finish, but no fruit bomb at the start. It’s malty enough to be a Belgian strong ale, but without the spicy yeast. Deep and dark enough to be an old ale, but not quite complex enough. Just a little citrus nip at the end to remind you what it is.

Picked up while in Door county Great appearance and decent mouthfeel. Not sure this beer is a 100 beer though.

Great nose of everything you want in IPA, fruity citrus pine grass all above yum. Flavor of same just palate is a tad sweet. A little too much caramelize for me. Not bad but just keeps it from a five score.
