Rich caramel colored DIPA pours a thick tan head. This thick, full-bodied beer was malty and bitter; a rich slow-sipper.

4-pack. Gorgeous beer, more copper than yellow. There’s cara-red in it, plus a couple other crystal malts. This means the body has a bit of sweetness to it. The hops are NW piney-citrus with a bit of bite to them. Decent bitterness to offset the sweet. Good DIPA.

bottle. amber with small head. first, i agree with the other raters who mention that this is more of a barleywine than dipa. medium malt base. rather sweet with bitter hops. some citrus fruitiness comes through. very big beer with plenty of booziness. i wasn’t terribly impressed, but maybe my expectations were unreasonable.

Copper color with a medium head. Juicy aroma of orange and tangerine. Strong caramel and biscuity grain flavor. Strong bitterness. Full body. Light citrus and fruit from the hops coming through, but the base seems more barley wine than IIPA (not necessarily a bad thing).

This is a pretty textbook Imperial ipa. A medium sweet and slightly sugary body is balanced by pronounced hops. Tropical fruits shine with notes of pineapple and melon, while finishing with a sticky resin. The alcohol is present but blends nicely into the other flavors. Quite nice.

My rating is pretty on point for this gem. And yes, it’s damn good. Hitting a max of 9% , this brew is incredibly smooth. Nice Mellon, citrus scent along with a mouthful of candy resin orange peel. A must have , if you’re going for a strong IPA. Cheers!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle while visiting Chicago. Pours slightly dark amber. Great half-finger foam head. Aromas are rich of sweet caramel malt, citrusy and dank resinous pine hops. Taste pushes back over into the passion and citrus fruits category. Plenty of late bittering hop flavor to balance. Really good beer.

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear amber pour with a thick off-white head. Aroma of malt and piney hop. Sweet malt flavor with pine accents before a bitter grapefruit finish.
