A Full-bodied American style Imperial Pale Ale with a malty mouth-feel that explodes with hop flavor & aroma.

22 Oz bottle. Pours orange with an off white head. Aroma is sweet floral and citric hops, with a hint of caramel. Smooth, medium body. Flavor brings floral, grassy and citric notes, as well as caramel and lightly roasted malty notes. Alcohol is very well hidden. Very tasty and easy drinking.

Bottle. Very clear amber body, off-white head, malty nose. Malty body with a lot of crystal, moderate bitterness, minimal hop character (some spicy notes, perhaps), a lot of alcohol. Definitely not a good example of the IIPA style; would make a decent barleywine, I suppose.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2007
draft- solid malty sweetness, balanced by a nice citrus hop flavor (cascade). Minimal head, minimal alcohol taste which was nice. Not the best example of the style but drinkable nonetheless.

Cole’s IPA Fest. Aroma has more malt than hops, deep orange, slim tan head. Taste is orange zest, some fine hops too. Balanced,bitter, sweet, good tongue tingle, abv is hidden. Good. Gotta like the name!

Growler. Pours a copper-red body with no head. The aroma has orange resin, soap, and grapes. Leafy flavour with notable alcohol and chewy hops. Quite hoppy but not overly bitter. Very drinkable.

Growler at Coles IPA Festival. Labeled "Pantius Dropius Imperial IPA." I am going to assume that this is one and the same! Golden dark amber body with a smallish head. Big boozy aroma as it has warmed up a bit, hot caramel, less hops than I would have expected. Flavour starts with boozy toffee and caramel, with light fruity hops. A very bitter finish lingers long into the aftertaste. Surprisingly big finish on a relatively mild flavour profile. Average to medium palate is a bit under carbonated, but the growler had been open for a while. Nice beer.

this one’s a little too much for me. i’m down with a good dose of hops but this one’s all bitter. it overwhlems the taste and hangs in the mouth. definitely not a session beer. if you like your brew with a very stong bite it may be worth a try but this one’s not for me.

Too strong for my likings. The Indian pale ale was never one of my favorites. Like that deformed annoying cousin at the family reunions you just can’t seem to get away from.
