2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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..

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.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

On Cask at Churchkeys D.C. pours a dark gold color with a small, frothy white head. The nose is pungent with notes of grapefruit and pine. The flavor has a bit of malty sweetness up front with a somewhat harsh citrus hop note.

GABF 2014. Pours a slightly hazy golden appearance with a thin khaki head. Low carbonation. A little gooey mouth feel. Orange citrus, grapefruit, light pineapple, and some caramel. I didn’t enjoy this all that much.

Nice strong IPA that is easier to drink than the Raging Bitch. Perfect from the bottle as it is.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2014 Clear dark golden amber with of white head. Aroma: pine hit up front then grapefruit. Nice palette, not heavy sweet like some imperial IPAs, just perfect maltyness for an imperial. Grapefruit dried fruits. Nice spicy-bitter finish with some boozy heat. I like this one, wish I had five more.
