COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Her er den ene halvdel af en ‘Black and Tan’ øl. Ikke hvilken som helst Black and Tan, men den hvor en opblæst, tyktflydende stodder og en tilbagelænet, humlet fyr mødes, og perfekt øl-balance opstår. Bland Yang med Yin, eller nyd denne flabede gode Imperial IPA solo.

spacecube (1308) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2015
330ml bottle, pours golden brown with a light haze. Big piney hop, grapefruit and caramel. Lots of hops and lots and malt, but balanced well with a moderate bitter finish, resiny with a little spice. Tasty stuff.

puren (250) - POLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Piana: bardzo obfita, średnie i drobne pęcherze;
Aromat: karmel, cytrusy, tostowe nuty;
Smak: karmel, toffi, zioła, karmelowy posmak;
Odczucie: dosyć treściwe, słodkie i goryczkowe, alkohol lekko rozgrzewa w przełyku;
Ogólnie: ś-w-i-e-t-n-e, znakomicie zbalansowane, ale nie nudne.

rondphoto (2879) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 22, 2015
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Nearly clear dark amber, frothy white head, broken curtain of lace. Nice looking brew. Taste is strong caramel malt that immediately adds power pine hops. Neither hops nor malt can’t wipe out the other, so both arrive at the finish. A really solid brew, big, alcoholic, nearly overwhelming.

KeefOz (1135) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2015
Poured a translucent golden amber colour with a one-finger off-white frothy head that retained well and laced poorly. Carbonation high with medium sized bubbles. Aroma of soft sweet tropical fruits, citrus, pine and earthiness with no obvious alcohol. Taste with intense spiciness, fruity hops, citrus bitterness and balanced by sweet caramel. Light to medium body. Smooth with a lingering spicy bitterness on the finish. Alcohol there but well hidden. Strong and flavoursome. Very nice.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2015
Pours an amber with a beige head. Slight haze. Sweet piney hop aromas with a bready malt backbone. Mango and orange aromas with some citrus and pine. Flavours are well balanced, with the fruity hop character matched well with a firm malt presence. Well carbonated and smooth. 10%abv hidden well

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Me & me cats are huddled afore a space heater ’cause the outside temps are subzero with gusty winds and I’m getting no gas soze I’m without heat. The gas company can’t get here until the day after tomorrow to fix it up. Tomorrow the forecasted high is -1 F, and I’m frakkin’ freezin’
In other words, I can really use an Impy (I prefer the equally inadequate term "Double") IPA!
This puppy gives a difficult pour (freezing temps?), a small deep amber body with a Humongous rocky head that collapses way too slowly. The aroma that eventually seeps through is both citrusy and resinous, earthy with a solid whiff of caramel. It tastes dandy, mayhaps a tad too sweet with toffee and caramel, but the hop flavors and heavy zest bitterness cancel the sweets out of it. The finish is probably too sweet for the West Coasters in the group, but the biting bitterness does me fine.
I’m still freezin’ my nuts off!

Mikon luona 1/2015. Yang alone was quite decent moderately hopped imperial IPA. Mix with Yang was surprisingly "alcoholic"!

Timyone (15) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 10, 2015
Toffee, a bit of biterness, full flavor. Great beer if you are after some thing with a big flavor.

EKGoldings (616) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Pours clear amber, nice head, scrubber cap. Smells caramel, toffee, alcohol, not much in the hop department. Taste is bitter sweet malts. Alcohol fairly well hidden at 10% when cool, but warmed up is more clear. Aftertaste remains bitter. For a DIPA this is pretty good, on the balanced malt-bitter side of the street and not overtly aromatic in the hops.
