4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big aroma - citrus with vague herbal notes. Mouthfilling sweet carmel malts upfront and surprisingly restrained (but still formidable) hop bitterness in the finish. Aftertaste and effects of evident alcohol. My bottle says 9.4%. Somehow reminiscent of onions, but not in a bad way.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on January 13, 2013:
A: Pours a chestnut color. Has a good lacing and has close to an inch of foam. Foam stays for awhile.
S: Strong smell of citrus and pine. Donít smell much else. Hops are smelt in there too.
T: Very hoppy in the beginning, but not overly hoppy. Slightly sweet in the end with very strong pine notes.
M: Medium heaviness on the tongue. Still can taste the pine.
O: Not as hoppy as I was expecting for an Imperial, but still quite enjoyable. I enjoyed the taste of pine.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bomber from Evergreen Discount into a tulip glass. Amber and pretty clear with an off-white head and patchy lacing. Aroma of pine, resinous hops, citrus and tropical fruit, floral, toasted malts, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavor, strong and bitter with light to medium malty sweetness balancing things out. Medium to full body with a creamy feel and a dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Opaque and golden copper in color with a generous fluffy off white lacy head. Aromas of, citrus, herbs, floral, very nice. Tastes... Delicious! Very happy yet fruity, not a lot of dry bitterness; my, my me oímy put me on a long boat to Tahiti , I find it to be highly sessionable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a pale yellow-gold, with small, quickly dissipating head. Strong floral hop aroma. Flavor is an intensely bitter, piney hop-front, with citrus notes and some underlying malty sweetness. Alcohol is. Well-hidden. This is a good one!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep orange/copper color with nice lasting head. Aroma was bold pine with some sweet malt. Full body in spite of average carbonation. Transient sweet fruit at front of palate - perhaps tangerine. Then massively piney with some biscuit malt before evolving, pervading bitterness. Decent amount of resin as well. Its a competent textbook-style American DIPA. That was disappointing as I expected Green Flash to impart their own interpretation.

Great beer. Light in color. Very hoppy. Pours light golden, nice head, smells like a forest, one of the better beers I've had.

This is a stellar DIPA. Just showed up in MN so I get to have this all the time now. Great hop aroma of resin and pine.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a thin white head with good lacing. Dank, skunky, barnyard cheese aroma. Light body, bitterness that builds through the finish, lively carbonation, thin texture. Bottle is fresh but the contents arenít so hot. Iíll have to try another bottle from a different batch as the rest of this one goes down the drain.
