3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazed golden liquid with a moderate, foamy off-white head. Nice rings of lace. Mild orange and pine cleaner scents. Light hints of alcohol add to a more industrial aroma. A touch of grain in the background. Flavors are much more mellow than the aroma lets on. Light malt sweetness with a touch of toasted malt and marshmallows in the front. Light pine and white pepper in the middle. A nice balance. Malt reappears in the finish and linger along with a bit of alcohol heat. A bit “hot” in feel. A more traditional twist on a double IPA which I rather enjoy. 2/10

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours bright orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, sweet malts, tropical fruits, and light dankness. Taste is citrus, pine, tropical fruits, sweet malts, caramel, herbal hops, and some light booze. Has a medium-full body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty nice DIPA from a brewery that continues to surprise me.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yellow/golden appearance with white head. Moderate retention with low lacing. Low hop aroma that has a citrus base. A moderate DMS aroma and taste. Sweet flavor to cover alcohol that contributes to a medium body. Hop bitterness is mod/high in aftertaste. Overall a drinkable beer but not a go-to for an IIPA.

This monster comes out on fire with a hoppy kick to the face. Wonderful aroma of fresh hops and great taste. Very dark.

From a bottle to tulip glass. Solid hop aroma. Pours an amber-orange with white head. Flavor is slightly cloying, with overt cracker and bread loaf malt with restrained citrus.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle via Jeremy, cold in a standard glass. Strongly vegetable, pungent, a little resinous, slight eucalyptus, a little sweet malt. Medium body, relaxed carbonation. Sweet malt, vegetable, a little eucalyptus, a touch medicinal; quite sweet with a decent amount of bitterness and a long, medicinal, slightly spicy finish.

from the aroma to the taste this is an incredibly syrupy tasting imperial IPA. Not a fan of this at all. nice orange color, but not hoppy at all. very disappointing IMO.

Great tasting beer any time of year. Strong taste with notes of citrus. Shame they only sell may-July. Run out & get some next summer.

"aroma of tropical fruit (cantaloupe) herbal hops & sweet malt. big bodied and a touch sticky. balanced flavor with some biscuit malt as well. i had a 4+ month old sample, and would have liked a little more aroma and hop flavor, but it was still pretty nice. good enough to keep my eye out for a fresher one. another trade from Lou!"

resin, floral, citrus, great body and the alcohol is not overwhelming for how high it is.
