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

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.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is dark amber with nice rings of white head around the glass. Aroma is rich earthy malt and very bitter hops. Flavor is exceptionaly bitter heavy hops. Not bad but not my style of IIPA.

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Deep red in color with a fizzy tan head that goes away quickly. Aroma is loaded with hops, some malts, and alcohol. Some floral notes. Flavor is very floral and hoppy with a nice and smooth sweetness at the end. Alcohol is hidden well but it’s still very warming.

Good malt and hop interplay, strong dose of hops, enough malt to keep it in check. Alcohol is pretty well hidden, fairly smooth body, quite drinkable for an I2PA. Quite good.

rudolf (2353) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2004
Dusty hop aroma with peanut and some toasty malt. Very sweet, lots of hops but those are hidden behind the malt. Nice - kind of like a less sweet Wailing Wench

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Tap: Nice amber color, small head. Aroma: Sweet, hoppy, crisp. Flavor: Excellent strong hops taste, alcohol, need to try again when I have more time to taste. Tried this without knowing anything about the beer or brewery and was impressed.

Pours a nice deep amber color, smells wonderful and sweet. The alcohol really is present in each sip on your tongue. Overall very good stuff
