Pours a cloudy gold with a white head. Dank, citrus, and floral aromas. Orange, pepper, spicy fruit, lemon peel, grass, and grapefruit notes with a subtle malt flavors. The bitterness is very high leaving a lingering tingle on your tongue long after the finish. At 9.1%, the alcohol is well hidden. The mouthfeel is somewhat grainy and rough with a moderate level of carbonation. Very tasty imperial IPA.

Strong, but not overpowering. Pine and resin, grapefruit and hops. There is some floral note, plus a light bitterness, but the finish is long and rolling. Pretty good.

On tap @ 3 Cellars, Franklin, Wisconsin. High alcohol content is undetected. Pineapple, koogin, and a bit of pine. Some grapefruit in the backdrop. A lovely pour. Very nice!

bottle. hazy orange. sweet overripe peach aroma. flavor has notes of stonefruits and pineapple with some residual honey, grainy, malt sweetness. somewhat low bitterness with deeper hop flavor. doesn’t strike me as 9.1%. an enjoyable beer thats different from the typical dry west coast version.

libertine (294) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2015
pours an orange amber with a thin white head that vanishes quickly. Aroma is slightly dank. Notes of apricot and tropical fruits. Taste is a little sweet. Apricot, mango, pineapple and a little peppery spice. Medium/full bodied with a oily/sticky texture. lasting bitterness in the finish. Perhaps a little sweet but a nice Imperial IPA. The tropical flavors are a highlight in this beer.

MaltOne (282) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 28, 2015
On tap @ Silver Creek. Pours a clear gold with an orange tinge, moderate white foamy head. Skucbt citrus aroma. Flavor has pronounced mellow orange first impact, balancing out with a nice malt framework and slightly dry finish. Palate has some nice body. Overall a very good DIPA though not as complex as some.

TattooJack (325) - Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Poured from the 4-pack of bottles, looks orange with brown highlights. Hops, tropical hops, citrus hops, creamy, with sticky resin on the back end. Nice and strong, more character appears with every drink, a sample would not do this beer justice should drink multiple beers to appreciate.
