COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
New for 2011, this Imperial IPA’s full malt body is elevated by the loads of hop flavor and bitterness. Copious amounts of Citra, Chinook, Columbus, Cascade and Centennial hops are used to give this beer a wonderful aroma of orange zest and lemon. This fruitiness from the hops is complimented by a nice caramel biscuit malt flavor from the pale and crystal malts and finishes balanced with a slight hop kick. This beer was dry hopped for your enjoyment. Available in 22oz Bottles and Draught ABV 7.5% IBUs: 80

Solid effort. Orange pour, citrus around. Mild sweetness, good citrus hip presence with a touch of resin. Full bodied but still refreshing. Not sticky. Good beer.

This lovely brew has a seriously dank aroma, the kind much loved by hopheads. Orange and floral notes dominate the complex blend of herbal scents. The taste is appropriately heavy on bitterness, with plenty of malty depth to balance things out. I prefer the relatively low alcohol percentage, although some may want more booziness. This one blurs the line between single and double IPA. It has a long hoppy aftertaste. Overall a well-crafted, easy-drinking, and tasty offering from Full Sail.

Bottle from Kegs and Barrels. Pours a deep copper color with a thin white head. The aroms are citrus, pine and bread. The mouthfeel is dry, bitter and slightly sticky with a medium body. Cheers!

22 oz bottle - Very strong hops aroma. A hint of citrus surrounded by hay. Nice. Tastes just as good. This one’s a winner!

Pours a chunky cheddar orange with a nose of orange rind and grapefruit. Flavor is orange, grapefruit, and a light pine finish. Thick on the palate. Very tasty.

Poured from a bomber. Transparent copper with a hearty head. The nose shows grapefruit and malty aromatics. Rich, yet bitter palate. Great length.

Pours deep amber into a Sam glass. Off-white head with excellent retention recedes to coat surface leaving spot lacing. Citrus and pine aromas. Sweet dark caramel upfront turning to bitter resin before a lasting grapefruit finish.

650 ml bottle at bev4less. Pours a amber-orange color with a fine beige head. The aroma displays abundant citrus, especially oranges with a bit of grapefruit. The flavor, like the aroma, is loaded with citrus, there are oranges, ripe orange peel and biter orange peel. Way in the back are some biscuit malts. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and clean. Overall: I thought that this beer rocked.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours copper with a creamy, bubbly near-white head. Aromas of fruit and floral - definitely some citrus. Med body. Flavor is light stone fruit, grapefruit rind, floral, and maybe, just maybe, a hint of malt. It’s that good. Yummy.
