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 oneís a little too much for me. iím down with a good dose of hops but this oneís 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 oneís 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 canít 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 itís 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
