Bottle. Fairly extreme DIPA. Pours lighter than most DIPA. Less sweet than expected, very bitter in your face hops. Beer changes character with temperature quite a bit, sweeter when warmer before it becomes boozy.

12oz. pours clear and golden with small white head. aroma is mildly pine and some earthiness. Flavor is dominated by some pine hops but it is not huge or over the top. has a rather crisp finish and doesn’t linger very long. This DIPA is a hop experience but not a hop bomb...

drpimento (2425) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2009
Man, what a beer! The aroma is like sticking yer schnoz in a pile of pine branches. Great foamy, frothy, head and lots of lace. Color is a lovely shade of light amber. Flavor is very earthy chewy malt base with lots o hop. Great burps. Don’t notice the alcohol till later. Nice hoppy and even a bit sweet finish. This beer is a work of (beer f)art.

decaturstevo (5396) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 21, 2009
Hazy gold/orange pour with creamy white head and lace. Resin and a hint of perfume or maybe it is resiny perfume? Abv, maltiness, followed by an excellent finishing bitter. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation. A really nice beer.

thegreenrooster (3463) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 21, 2009
Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is hops. Flavor is more hops. There is not much else you can really say about these Impy IPA’s they are all pretty much the same. Some are ball crushingly hoppy and some are just hoppy enough to put you in your happy place. This beer is more the latter. Hoppy yes but not over the top like some I’ve recently had. Still this is somthing to look for.

AmEricanbrew (6285) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - APR 21, 2009
Courtesy of Peter. Clear light amber with a white head. Nice floral, grassy hop aromas. Smooth medium body. Nice earthy floral hop flavors on a sweet caramel malty base .

angrypirate06 (1387) - Texas, USA - APR 21, 2009
Bottle thanks to peter. Golden pour with a nice haze and white head. Aroma was floral hops, caramel and citrus hops. Flavor of spice, citrus, and nice long lasting hops. The alcohol was hidden well.

Strykzone (5391) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2009
A golden beer with just a hint of amber color. A one finger orange white head had good retention and sticks to the glass. Aroma is a nice mix of tart citrus and floral hop with caramel. Flavor is grainy with citrus and floral hop notes. Does this have Simcoe in it? As the beer warms some light pepper spice shows up. A deep bitterness grows and cascades. There is little effort to balance the tartness but there is some sweeter fruit effects. This beer is indeed a mouthful of hops with a nice mix of hop varieties. Very well done!

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 20, 2009
Draught at Eulogy, Phila. Poured into a thick and clunky chalice. An attractive hazy golden with a thin head, leaving spotty lacing. For some strange reason I couldn’t pick up much on the aroma, just some traces of floral and tangerine hops. Could have been the glass, who knows? Started out like a top tier 2IPA, with a great presence of citrusy and floral hops, but after a while this seemed to become muddled and overly sweet in the malts, combining to create a sticky, peachy flavor. Certainly enjoyable after a five mile walk around Philly, but I wanted more of that 2IPA super resiny astringency on the finish to cut into the sweetness.

Slipstream (2197) - USA - APR 20, 2009
UPDATED: APR 21, 2009 Clever, funny picture on the label. Fluffy head and sheet lacing. Terrific sweet, floral aroma with a touch of malt and pine. The taste is charged up with lots of hops that linger into the aftertaste. This has astringent, almost salty, pine and grapefruit flavors that come close to being too harsh Double Trouble is a potent IPA that will score big with any hop fanatic.
