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.

pale copper, thin foamy head...dusty aroma, flavors of burnt caramel, alcohol, moderate bitter long finish, no discernible malt (a plus in my book)... definitely drinkable but not a lot going on-- no real citrus or pine, etc..

Full head on a dark gold pour. There is a good dose of lemony, herbal hops in the aroma, plus a bit of honey. The taste is packed with leafy hops, then shifts to a full, spicy finish. Very good! FD continues to impress.

Vaiz (3821) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle in Baltimore. Hazy orange pour, thin white head. Aroma is very fruity, citrus, pine, resin and grapefruit hops. Flavor is quite bitter, spicy, a hint of pepper and a bit sharp. Fresh and intense, crispy brew.

12oz bottle from JohnGonk! Thanks bro! Pours a clear golden orange color with a finger of frothy white head. Aroma of lemon, orange, grapefruit, caramel malt, and hints of grass and alcohol. Taste mimics the nose. Pretty solid.

stevoj (2869) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Almost there. Piney, resinous, but falls a little short by NW standards. Pretty decent, but more like a normal NW IPA, not a DIPA. Enjoyable, but could be a bit bigger.

radagast83 (5657) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2015
On draft at GBD in Washington DC. Poured a dark golden color with a small, foamy white head. Aroma was lots of grapefruits, tropical notes and plenty of pine resin. Flavor was very juicy, alcohol is present, but I don’t care, the flavor makes up for the boozy nature of this Imperial IPA. For a style I thought I was slowly being turned off to, this one may have reinvigorated that spark. Delicious.

12oz bottle. Gold with orange color with one finger head. Citrus, slight pineapple and earthy aroma. Citrus, pine and boozy taste. Can taste the alcohol in this one, but good.
