COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full Disclosure: This beer came to fruition because we saw a gap in our portfolio and we wanted to increase our market share. Sometimes the truth hurts. But most often, it’s damn refreshing. The Truth Imperial IPA--the latest addition to our year-round portfolio-is a hop bomb of some of the most distinct Pacific Northwest hops available today. Its sharp hop bitterness begins with huge pine notes on the nose, which evolve into bright citrus (think grapefruit) and subtle stone fruit flavors.

Fin (9591) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2016
Bottle from De Slijterij van Alkmaar - Centrum, consumed at Frank (camper), Camping Bandstrad Edam, Thursday 29th September 2016 Crystal malt on the nose, along with a bullish hoppiness, though the maltiness stands out. Sweet but devilishly hoppy, thick in the mouth, long bitter streak, fresh juicy hops, really nice, lots of hoppy burps. Hazy golden in colour with a white sticky head. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

PabloZab (1140) - Wroclaw, POLAND - SEP 23, 2016
Butelka 355ml (02.06.2017). Lekko mglisty, złoto-pomarańczowy kolor. Piana biało-żółta, obfita, drobna, wyraźnie osadza się na ściankach szkła. W aromacie przeplatają się nuty żywicy i słodkich owoców tropikalnych, dając dość intensywny, świeży bukiet. W smaku wyraźna, na średnim do wysokiego poziomie, żywiczna goryczka jest kontrowana wyraźną, słodką, o smaku owoców tropikalnych, podbudową słodową. Piwo ma średnie do wysokiego ciało, nieco ściągającą goryczkę z minimalną nutką alkoholu ale ogólnie to porządnie nachmielona, mocna, nieco ciężka w odbiorze acz całkiem pijalna IPA z bardzo fajną słodyczą w posmaku.

kaserov (184) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 12, 2016
Color ámbar claro con capa de espuma blanca de un dedo de grosor. No mucha carbonatación presente. Aroma a lúpulo y malta (muy presente esta última). Espera algo más resinoso. Alcohol presente en el aroma (no en el sabor), a medida que va atemperando. El sabor es similar, mezcla de malta y lúpulo, con amargor final ligero. Sinceramente, no me parece una Imperial IPA muy allá, es decente, es bebible, pero tampoco me vuela la cabeza. Normalita y disfrutable.

Sample on tap @ the brewery. Pours a light caramel brown with a thin white ring. Nice citrus hop and not too harsh. Fairly enjoyable.

Dorwart (2535) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2016
Thin offwhite head of fine bubbles. Aroma of pine sap, sweet malts, a hint of pineapple and cereal grains. Color is a nice medium orange. Sharp bitterness overlays some ripe citrus fruit, more pine, toasted grains and grapefruit pith. Moderate alcohol presence that gives a nice little tingle in the mouth. Finishes moderately bitter and dry. A pretty good IIPA.
