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.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2013 12oz bottle. Nice aroma of mang, maybe peach. Beautiful, dense lacing. But the taste is lackluster: A mixture of thin grapefruit and thin mango which gives way to a chalky finish, that sticks in the mouth for a dusty long while. Pretty sub-average DIPA.

Dorwart (2522) - 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.

veceo (1221) - CROATIA - JUL 30, 2016
Clear golden color, average sized staying head. Aroma of malt, candy, yeah... Hops are probably all gone. Peaches, some herbs notes and light alcohol. Taste is malty, some fruitiness, lots of sweetness, empty bitterness in the end. Shit, I need to try it again, fresh.

eljebi (68) - oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 30, 2016
DIPA cítrica, afrutada sin excesos, con esas notas a pomelo y cáscara de naranja tan de la casa y el punto ácido del trigo que se combina con el amargor resinoso del final.
