3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 12 oz.
Pours golden with low white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of fruits, rice, alcohol, candies. Taste is of sugar, alcohol, fruits, strong bitterness, booze, caramel, some quad-reminiscent notes. Palate: Full bodied. Sticky mouthfeel. Low-medium carbonation. Overall: Boozy, hot. The balance is interesting considering high alcohol content.

A sticky hoppy monster. Very boozy nose. Sweet. Sharp hops behind that. Big sweaty fruits on a hot day. More booze. Crazy hop notes. Almost too much but glad I had it. Keg at BD Shep Bush.

Pours a clear dark gold with a few odd particles and a nice white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of hops and alcohol, pretty much what I expected. Taste is really bitter and more sweet than average, alcohol is hot but that is to be expected. This is hot indeed but not annoying and actually kind of fun. Body is medium, mouthfeel really sticky and carbonation moderate. Not bad at all, not something I would drink regularly but pretty enjoyable!

Tot i tenir 13 graus és una cervesa força equilibrada. Dolça amb un punt amargant molt suau.

Nice caramel color. Strange particle looking floaters. Nice sweet hoppy flavor. Great imperial ipa.

The hops attacked me like the Finns vs. the Soviets on the Raate Road. So did the alcohol content, for that matter. Nice amber color with medium head. Pine aroma and a smooth palate going down. A world-class IPA and a must drink for those who are extremely picky about their hoppy product.

An awesome beer. Sweet caramel and hops on the aroma, at 13abv it’s going to be sweet, but the hop backbone make it very drinkable. Remember to sip, not glug!

Draft at Mekong. Clear deep gold, good head. Hop bomb aroma of grapefruit, pineapple, slight pine, sweetish honey malts. Flavor matches, a standard palate wrecker. Nice.

Awesomly rich caramel based malty background, with quite impressive citrus hop bomb incoming – mostly grapefruit, oranges, peaches, bit piney. Maybe not very well balanced, but that sweetness is so sexy :P Decent moderate bitterness leading to bit dry finish. Enjoyable brew
