Thanks to Ramenen. Bottle: Don’t know if the best in America, but best in list so far. Incredible hops, floral and herbal notes, aroma is great with a robust and strong body.

Bottle. Dark color for an IPA. Nice hoppy balance with a smooth finish. I've had 70 minute IPA. I guess that extra 30 minutes was well worth the wait.

A beautiful beer, this is all about the dance between hops and malt, bitter with a large amount of caramel, herbal, boozy notes. Smooth, we’ll balanced, and hides the alcohol well

12 oz bottle. This is a decent double IPA, although it could be hoppier (wish I could find a bottling date). It is fairly malty for the style, although not cloyingly caramel sweet and you definitely can’t tell it is 9%.

One of my favorite DIPA’s so far, beautiful glass of beer, nice color great head retention, aroma gets better as it warms as do the individual flavor notes. This beer is still tasty at room temperature! Great malt choices blend with the hops to produce a very smooth, high bitter nutty flavor finish that keeps you asking for another round. Have to check myself with this beer as it can put a decent buzz on you fast.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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 !!
