4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(12.7oz bottle) Opaque cloudy brown copper body with a medium tan head. Aroma is sweet, caramel malt; lots of fruit, orange and grapefruit; some floral notes and a bit of musk. Medium to full bodied, chewy and slightly oily. Big flavor of bitter citrus hops, but balance with sweetness. Hops win in the end with a lasting finish and a touch of warming alcohol.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Sergio’s World of Beer. Pours a super thick with a thick off white head that completely laces the glass. Murky reddish amber in color. Nose is slightly nutty, with a resinous scent that dominates. Flavors of pine, toffee, and a huge bitter hop finish. Mouthfeel is very thick and syrupy. Try this if you can.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from AmmersinO, Vienna
Suprisingly dark red, hazy body, with a big, creamy, stable, beige head, that sticks to the glass a lot.
Aroma of citrus, red berries, peach and other stone fruits, some tropical fruits, caramel, tea.
Taste with about the same aromas, some additional roasty notes and the bitterness soon coming through.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a medium carbonation and in the finish the dry bitterness dominates and lasts forever, but there is also some roastiness, citrus, berries, stone fruits and a slight alcohol warmth.
Interesting and pretty unique. As expected with a strong bitterness, but well balanced by pleasant berries and stone fruits, caramel malts and even some roastyness. A heavy beer though that I can’t drink much, not only because of the strong bitterness, it is also pretty filling.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Didn’t get as much hop flavour or aroma as i thought i would from this beer. A strange kind of earthy, whiskey style flavour is present. It is very bitter but it feels like it lacks in late hop additions. I would get an Evil Twin Molotov Cocktail if you wan’t to experience an intense imperial IPA that takes hop flavour and aroma to the extreme.

Great IPA if you want to test your limits on hops this is the one you should try. If you are tasting more tgen 1 beer make this one the last, your palate will be affected

"looks slightly darker than the avg IIPA. Huge hop aroma, but some malt does come through as well. feel is thick, not quite sticky. flavor bitter and citrus, but no more than a 100 ibu beer. very good, but not worth the price tag. one and done for this bad boy."
