4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Bottled on April 11th - 5 days old! Sweet, baby!
Pours golden and pretty clear. A light orange with an off-white head.
Aroma is a ton of hops and itís juicy as hell: Big bitterness, citrus, pineapple, some mango, grapefruit, oranges, tangerines, lemon, and a small amount of the alcohol but not a lot. Not any malts to speak of. Maybe itís too fresh :)
Taste follows the nose pretty well. Extremely juicy and bitter - so nice. Pineapple, mango, sweet oranges/tangerines, pine, typical West Coast stuff. You donít taste the 9.4 % but you feel a warmth in the throat - but itís not unpleasant at all.
Iím having a hard time finding any lacks in this beer. Spot on on the style! Maybe, it would prefer it even more bitter, but I have to say this is one of my favorite DIPAs - especially when itís only 5 days old :D. Green Flash Brewing Company, you guys rule!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a big rocky head. Aroma of booze, caramel and faint hops. Flavor is hugely bitter, quite sweet. The mouthfeel is thick. Finishes with a tinge of sour. There is an incredible dearth of aroma hops in this beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle- Pours hazy golden with a two finger head. Aroma is hops, citrusy piney hops, spicy too, not much malt in this one. The taste is nice and dank, piney and resinous, wonderful, citrus is there, but more dank than anything, malt takes a backseat in this one thank God, but you do get a light sweet malt taste in there somewhere. Body is medium and carbonation is medium high. I really enjoyed this one, hops man!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lighter color than I expected, for an Imperial. Features a rather pleasant fruity aroma (slightly like bubblegum). Tons of flavor; so much that its hard for me to pick put individual components. Wet leather? Straw? Metallic acidity aftertaste.
