On tap at The Drafting Roomís Hopfest (Spring House, PA). Hops more subdued than other raters describe. Wonderful floral taste, like jasmine flowers, in front of the hop bitterness, which was well balanced. High ABV was hard to detect from the palate, but Iím sure itís there. A delicious beer and an excellent brew.

Kinz (3506) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2009
Hazy pale orange, decent but small head. Aroma is slightly gummy malts and loads of hops, primarily showing pineapple and pine notes. Sticky on the palate, a touch sweet. More pineapple and pine, with a touch of anise on the long, quite bitter finish. Highly enjoyable.

Double IPA is absolutely my favorite style and this beer delivers with a full hop assault. Grapefruit and pine with a great mouthfeel and slightly sweet malt finish to provide balance. Delicious!

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.

carl4beer (522) - Fairfax Station, Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2009
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 doesnít linger very long. This DIPA is a hop experience but not a hop bomb...

drpimento (2458) - 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. Donít notice the alcohol till later. Nice hoppy and even a bit sweet finish. This beer is a work of (beer f)art.

decaturstevo (5407) - 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 (3499) - 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 IPAís 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 Iíve recently had. Still this is somthing to look for.

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 .
