4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours with a strong citrous aroma "right off the bat"with a nice creamy head with great lacing. Smell is very floral and very evident. Attractive clear light amber color. Great balance with a strong richness of body. However it is not cloying and has roller coaster complex after-taste, sometimes smokey, then floral, then malty then... I give up! Please go get some!

Pours a hazy amber from a bottle. While I like hops, I feel like the "smash you over the head with hops", "stuff hops down your throat/pants", "convert your car so it requires beer with >90 IBUs as fuel" craziness is a little much. Calm down, brewers. Regardless of my feelings on the subject, this is a good, very hoppy imperial IPA.

Old rating. Pours orange, with a big creamy head. Aroma is roasted malts with grain and caramel, as well as bitter hops with pine. Flavour is bitter hops, with resin, pine and orange peel. Lingering bitter finish.

Bottle at Moriartys. Never poured it out of the bottle (for once) so not certain of the color - also not certain of its age but it was likely at least 9 months old (but could be 2+ years old.) Gigantic peppery, earthy, herbal hop flavors. Enough to shock the tongue a bit. The caramel malts hiding in the background include some notable hints of brown amber fruits. Dried apricots, figs and dates. Not positive if that element is always there or if specific to this aged bottle. Hints of cinnamon. Tangelo pith. Maybe rotted bananas. The palate is interesting. Different. I like it. Lingering numbness. Should try again. Suspect a fresh bottle or draft will taste completely different.

Amber to copper colored, small white head. Aroma of caramel malts, pine and citrus, very hoppy. Taste medium to strong sweet caramalt, very hoppy, pine and grapefruit, some tropical fruits, resin. Quite bitter and dry finish with a lasting aftertaste. Boozy. Medium to full bodied, moderately oily.

strong imperial with light finish and a persistent palate. great color and aroma. I think the best part of this beer is that it’s highly drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a four pack of bottles, nice pour with a nice amount of foam. At first you get hit with a blast of bitter which literally does wreck the palate, but by midway through the 2nd beer the flavor of the hops start to get really tasty. I think the boast of "heavy hitter" on the side of the bottle is very accurate in all categories (alcohol, hops, and IBU’s).

This pours a clear, golden amber color with a slight head. The aroma is slightly bitter. The taste big and bitter.

Delish. Definitely a good imperial ipa. The bitter hits you at the end so it’s quite an experience.
