On tap at Caliente. Pours a clear orange gold with medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong floral and earth. Medium body, pine, dank, resin finish, very good.

Not much head, good amount of lacing. Pretty hefty mouthfeel that comes across as super sweet with heavy balanced hops within. More booze bomb than hop bomb. I washed it down with an all day IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Voodoo (557) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2016
Poured a caramel gold with near zero head.....aroma of melon, candied fruit, syrupy malt.......taste is booze, dried fruits, heavy malt, bitter, more booze on the backend.

Dacrza (836) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - MAR 21, 2016
DATE TASTED: March 20, 2016... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter... OCCASION: a Sunday spent at Lenape Valley’s The World Goes Round... APPEARANCE: pours a strong orange/yellow amber body with ample effervescence... the head is a thick, creamy half-finger that coats intermittently... not demonstrative as it drains, with little to trace due to its high alcohol... AROMA: strong grapefruit and resin, with dank basement and orange peel as secondary aromas--not as big as anticipated... tough to ferret out the malts ... PALATE: here is the warmth, with a stoker-sized presence in the throat... a slight buzz about the teeth suggests n IPA,, but again, not the collision expected when in the presence of royalty...TASTE: the grapefruit is pronounced, while the resin and pine makes for a classic forest-and-field wedding.... some late malt akin to whiskey, but overall the profile is decidedly one-sided... OVERALL: the unmistakable Summit and Citrus hops have this beer smiling sunshine, while the Chinook represent enough to divide the hop character... still, as solid as this is, it does not approach the power or profile of other Imperials... but a tasty, solid beer nonetheless....

Really good, crisp, grapefruit taste. Very natural tasting. It masks the 11.5 incredibly. I would love to have this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NikkTwist (2666) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2015
Bottle at Moriartys. Deep clear orange amber with a slim soapy head. Bright earthy hops. Dried blood orange peels. Autumn leaves. Truffles. Plum resins. Tallow. Black peppercorns. Dry and succulent. Cannot think of another earthy hop beer that feels this sharp. Very pleasantly surprised.

Duchammer (186) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle poured copper with no head however it had good carbonation. Aroma had baldy of citrus grapefruit light pine and sweet honey notes. Flavor was floral citrus light malt notes with a kiss of alcohol. Wow great beer! Sorry Shaun.

HomerBeerOdysy (101) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2015
APPEARANCE - Bubbles, light, clear, foamy, 2FH that lasts, a lot of lacing. AROMA/SCENT - Hops, pine, grain. TASTE - Hops, malts, nutty, pine. MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Good carbonation, dry, bubbly, clean, light, crisp. VALUE - 4-pack $11.99. Great buy. OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - Just a hint of boozy, but still quite a pleasant Imperial.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2015
This is a beast of an IPA, so much so that it might as well be a really hoppy American Strong Ale. Boozy, bitter, tropical fruits, syrupy sweet malt backbone. The grapefruit aroma is the most pronounced. It’s a sipper.
