COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This remarkably balanced brew has a deep amber hue with a generous white head. Hopmouth showcases a rich, toasty flavor and sweet caramel notes because of the high-quality Maris Otter malt used. The hops are up front in the aroma, reminiscent of citrus and pine, while the resin-like flavors linger well after the last sip.

On draught last night at Dexter’s, on the house actually since it was the last one. Beautiful beer that was incredibly popular there. Poured a cloudy orange colour with a huge white head. Tons of carbonation equals lots of froth. Aroma is wickedly hoppy right away. Incredibly fresh as well, with scent of pine, ginger and bubblegum floating through. Taste is fruity and hoppy and astringent in full dub IPA expectancy. One of the best Imps I’ve had in a long time."

A very tasty double IPA. Just the right amount of hops flavor without being overpowering. Great balance.

I like it; just don't love it. Very well balanced for a DIPA; only problem is that I like hop bombs for DIPAs. Very fragrant but the nose is really floral. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught. Dark amber with small foamy beige head, floral hops aroma, medium carbonation, strong hops taste, long finish with hops aftertaste. Quite strong and sharp.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy dark amber brown color, white head cover, streaks of lace. Nice malt aroma. Taste is strong dark caramel malt that becomes stronger and adds hops and alcohol on the swallow, hanging tough for a long time. Big, almost too much to relax and enjoy.

Pours an amber color with a nice head. Aroma has some hops up front with some citrus and pine. There is citrus up front like grapefruit and melon but there is also some hop bitterness on the backend. Not a heavy DIPA but pretty good.

Poured from the bottle of a 4-pack to a pint glass, this is a good looking glass of beer. Smell is clean and is very easy drinking especially since it’s 8%. Would like to see it in a 6 pack.
