COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This boldly hopped ale will take you to new heights of hoppiness. Copious amounts of Chinook, Columbus, and Cascade hops combine to evoke far off places with the scents and flavors of tropical fruit, pine needles, flowers and a hint of freshly mown grass. A choice malt bill lifts the hops, providing balance and keeping this beer on course.

DrSilverworm (6302) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2014
12oz bottle, from Lukas Liquors in Missouri. Best by 8/2014. Mostly clear amber color. Made hazy with chunky yeast particles in the body. Thin ring of white head, some dots of lace. Bitter bitter taste, light sweet. Just a very light bite on it, otherwise alcohol is not bothersome. Piney hop, light herbal resin.. Bigger body, kind of slick. Kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Less aroma hop, more bittering at the moment. Alright stuff. Drinkable but not delicious. Would like more aroma on it.. Probably much more enjoyable super fresh.

Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is a pungent hop with not much else showing. Flavor is an ok hop with some chalky malts. Finish is super bitter with a small amount of hop resin left. A small decent fruitiness is left on the tongue. The only thing imperial about this is the alcohol which is not found. The hops are there but this is kind of a dry malty mess.

Pleasant C hop aroma. Gold/copper color, some haze. Big resinous hop bite with the full range of grapefruit and pine flavors. Caramel sweetness balances the bitterness without being syrup like.

kevinator (888) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Good one. Citrus and pine notes in the nose. Hazy light copper color. Full and somewhat weighty palate with a clean finish. Good carbonation. Hop-forward beer with a clean bitterness that stays. Good malt and caramel backbone to support the beer. Nicely done.

12 oz bottle, best by 06/14. Beautiful hazy copper color on the pour. Some sweetness in the aroma that reminds me of gumballs. Definitely not your typical DIPA. Highly drinkable and outside the box. I would get this again.

jandd1983 (2538) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 2, 2014
It poured a cloudy golden brown color with a small off-white head. The aroma was of hops, grapefruit and passion fruit with grass and a big malt presence. The palate was rich and had an oily creamy finish. The taste was of passion fruit and grapefruit with a dry piney finish and a sweet malt backbone. Nice.

Great nose. piney aroma. citrus, piney flavor. A little resinous after taste. Not very smooth for an imperial ipa.
