Enjoyable and hoppy beer without being too over powering. The alcohol was well hidden and the hops nicely balanced with orange flavor.

Imperial ipa. Honey orange with some pale bitterness aftertaste. Strong beer without being too syrupy

nimbleprop (4975) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 8, 2014
10oz pour at Big Hunt in DC. Pours a hazy orange with some thin, creamy, white head. Nose has a mix of sweet malt, a little caramel, some mild candy and pine, soap, orange, grapefruit. Flavors are the same, a little butterscotch lurking, some reduced orange juice, pithy, piney too. Lightly sticky finish but also quite drinkable at 9%.

Is a nice bitter ipa. Has a good strong pine hop taste, similar aroma. Good thick body.

Transfer from BA review from 8-26-12 - Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served a very lightly hazed golden-orange color with a light white head. The head faded over time to leave a good level of lacing. Smell – The smell is a nice balance of citrus hop, sweet tropical fruits (mango and pineapple) as well as some malty breadiness. A balanced smell that is not subtle, but yet not overpowering either. Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter fruit and malt base. The fruit is a mix of tropical flavors as well as citrus with the malt being of a bready nature. As the taste advances some of the sweetness and malt fades, but the hop increases with some flavors of grapefruit and a tangerine/lemon hop coming to the tongue. While the sweetness fades some in the middle, it resurges again at the end. With it there is a slight increase in the hoppy nature of the beer as well. The citrus hop flavors get stronger and in the end, a nice sweet yet hoppy flavor are left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to creamier side with a carbonation level that is just below average. Both suit the more balanced hop and sweet malt flavors of the brew very well. Overall – A very tasty, sweeter, and rather drinkable Imperial IPA. Quite nice.

This beer is great! Hops out the wazoo, that’s what an ipa should be, and this definitely delivers! The issue arises afterward, where some ipas have a crisp finish, this has a syrupy lingering hop taste.... This is worth it. Buy it, try it, but make sure you have a glass of water handy. Because you’ll need it...

Really good. A great thickish amber color. Tastes hoppy bit not bitter. My ideal looking beer. I want my flagship beer to look like this.

Appearance: clear yellow. Big white head. Aroma: urine. Yes, really, urine. Funny i’ve drank several of these as this is the last of a six pack,but only now did i take a reAl whiff. Smells like piss. The hops and pine are way behind the abhorrent pee smell. Yuck. Taste: Ashy, dry. Not awful, amazingly. Feel: dry, if that could be said about a beer. Low carb. OVERALL: pretty bad.
