650ml bottle. Wow, everything about this beer is good. From the vibrant golden orange colour and deep light white foam cap to the nose penetrating hop aromas and big lingering hop flavours this is one mighty beast of a beer. If only everything evil was this good.

Aroma: Resinous, onion/garlic, damp grass hop aroma mixing with some alcohol and a bit of caramel. Appearance: Light copper and hazy. Minimal head. Taste: Well-balanced is the first thing that comes to mind. Itís a big double IPA, but the hops are reigned in by a solid malt presence and sweetness. Hop notes are resinous, grassy, dank, a bit of onion/garlic. Itís followed up by a light malt sweetness and surprisingly doesnít have a lingering bitterness. Its easy to go back for more on this one. Palate: Full bodied without a lot of lingering bitterness. Finishes a lot lighter than youíd expect for its body. Overall: A nice double IPA, but more restrained than a lot of west coast IPAs you find. Easy drinking and balanced for the style.

VinegarStroke (270) - Napa, California, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle: Clear, deep copper, medium to thick head with great lace. Citrus aromas. Very hoppy. Just a hint of the lantana, green, rubber or resin profile. Dry, not sour and medium bitterness. Good depth and length. Refreshing for a double. Seems to be well attenuated.

PhillyCraft (3166) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2014
Poured an amber tinted orange color with small white head. Nose is berries, grapefruit, light sweet malt, and some misc resin. Flavor was most of the same with a bitter hop bit. Medium bodied with good carbonation for the style. Pretty solid offering.

Koskela (281) - Marysville, California, USA - APR 24, 2014
Very hoppy aroma very floral and heavy malt aroma mixed in this orangy hazy brew with little white head. A full malty flavor and body and good carb compliment the hop flavor and bitterness of this imperial ipa. Overall it is exactly what the brewer says. A massively hoppy imperial ipa. Massively delicious.
