Sampled at AC Beerfest 2014. Poured a clear golden color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of caramel malt, grapefruit, and sweet tropical fruits (melon, mango, etc). Taste of bitter grapefruit, caramel malt, and pine.

Brown, golden pour. Not much to be said for aroma. Full bodied taste, hoppy and malty with hint of citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice pine and citrus aroma over a sweet malty base. The hops blend nicely with nothing over powering. The start is sweet and creamy with the hops coming on at the back. Nice after taste that lingers after the beer is gone. On tap at the Pour House in Westmont NJ

kramer (4690) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear light copper body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring and a small island. The nose is a little too heavy on the crystal malt sweetness for my tastes, light to moderate citrusy hops. The flavor is lightly bitter with a huge amount of crystal malt sweetness. The hops are so dulled by the awful sweet malt base that they really don’t have a chance to shine at all. Very light bitterness for a DIPA as well. Medium bodied and a bit sticky with hard fizzy carbonation. A pretty awful DIPA. I had their Lot #3 IPA and it was pretty delicious, this is a 180 degree turn from that one. The sweetness on the finish just lingers on for ever. Yuck.

Pours a nice copper color with solid lacing. Smells malty and of hops. Slight taste of citrus in the background and strong hop flavor. A very good beer.

Appearance: Orange-Copper color with a finger width of head. Amazing carbonation. Aroma: Pine, melon, mango, robust grapefruit and a hint of straw. Palate: plenty of carbonation. A smooth coat of cream vanilla coats the the tongue as if I was drinking a pint from the cask. Long lasting bitterness with flavors of pine, pineapple and mango. A very well balanced imperial IPA!!! Overall: This imperial IPA has to be in my top five. The well balanced malt matches up with the aggressive bitterness to deliver a must have east coast IPA. Pairings: Gouda Cheese, Prima Donna Cheese, Curry Dishes, Thai, Mexican and Spicy entrees

keanex (1289) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottled in January of 2014.
Appearance: Nearly perfectly clear amber hued body that shows off lots of sparkling carbonation. The head is frothy with a craterous top and excellent retention. The head settles into a frothy off-white coating.
Aroma: The aroma is strong and vibrant, lots of orange, some mango and pineapple and hints of floral qualities. The aroma shows some bitterness and a hint of alcohol, but overall it smells very nice.
Taste: The bitterness is pretty aggressive from start to finish with bitter orange, though an underlying sweet orange takes away from the bitterness slightly. Underlying it is hints of mango and a dry malt base that allows for the hops to stand out. The finish lingers a bit dry with the bitterness clinging.
Palate: Full-bodied with snappy and sharp carbonation.
Overall: This is an excellently crafted imperial IPA showcasing the hops. This is incredibly drinkable and very flavorful.

EithCubes (4634) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle. Nose is big on nice tropical fruits, rinds and all, with a firm pine base. Pours clear amber with a dense and rocky off-white head. Taste medium-strong bitterness, some cool astringent and highly resinous notes, but sweet with a faint amount of booze seeping through. Light body (again, something I didn’t like about the small, not souped-up original of which this is a variant) but with nice cleansing soapy character and lighter wood. some of the woodier and spicier notes from their IPA are toned down here, but I have to give it to them, they make clean and refreshing beers.

bth122 (1144) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy orange color. Almost no head. Aroma of tropical citrus, hop resin, malt sryup. Medium heavy bitterness. Medium-full body. Thicker texture, slightly oily. Average carbonation. Bitter finish. A big, malt forward, but nicely hoppy beer. Some sticky hop resin aftertaste. Not bad. I think I liked the single IPA better.
