Well, if you like IPAs this might be good. Unfortunately, the waitress didn’t know it was an IPA. Even for the fact that I don’t like IPA, I wasn’t that impressed.

Spab (2526) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2014
355 ml bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a modestly cloudy golden colour with average white head. Aroma is dank, tropical fruit hoppiness with some pine and crackery grains. Flavour is big resiny and tropical fruit hops, crackery grains and a little caramel. Just a hint of alcohol warmth. Solidly bitter finish. Very nice.

Maltser85 (307) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Pour is golden with a white head. Aroma of pine with a slight citrus note. Also some sweet malt/alcohol on the nose. Pine up front, sweet malt and alcohol in the middle and pine that ramps up on the back end. Very well balanced. Does not taste like its as high of alcohol as it is. Medium full body.

"well done double ipa - very bitter and lively dank hoppy citrus aroma. bitterness on the back end of the palate. surprisingly well balanced while still being very hop centric and lively. if this were fresh outta the brewer, it would be among the best me thinks. thanks John!"

akoeninger (478) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2014
A solid piney, citrus imperial ipa that sits on the hoppy side of balanced. Golden yellow and very aromatic. Some malt and booze sweetness. Very tasty and all about the hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Color: slightly cloudy copper color. Almost no head. Aroma: very piney with a touch of citrus. Taste: a fairly I pronounced acidic and/or carbonation mouth feel. The pine is also quite prominent and stays on the long finish. The alcohol lends it some welcome sweetness. A quite good beer, though definitely a hop bomb. If you prefer some balance, this may not be your cup of tea...
