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.

12 ounce bottle. Amber orange color with small rocky white head. Sweet tropical fruit malt nose has notes of duck sauce and butterscotch. Flavor upfront is toasted malt with more butterscotch and notes of mango. Mid taste has notes of resiny hops and sweet alcohol. This is a big brew that drinks small, as DIPA’s go!

Very light haze on this gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and slightly viscous, semi dry with fine carbonation. Smooth malts precede alcohol dryness and spice. Little resinous pine and citrus. Mild hop spice. Light finish. Clunky but passable.
