Draught. Pours an amber color with a moderate white head. Nose and taste both have some strong hoppy bitter elements to them, yet the beer ends up being super smooth and well-balanced. One of the better IIPAs I’ve had.

I think I liked this one more last time I had it. Fresh from the keg, snifter pour of healthy amber with faint of white head. Nose is straight hops and bitterness. Flavor is obscene.. Just too much, too overwhelming. No balance, and while I somewhat enjoy drinking it, it’s not as spectacular as I remember.

Very juicy hop aromas redolent of grapefruit, tangerine, nectarine, pine, and herbs, with lighter scents of caramel malts. Appearance is deep orange-red, with an off-white head that fades quickly. Very bitter. Medium-full bodied with refreshing carbonation, some spice, and a lingering bitter finish.

They call it a palate wrecker, but I personally love the mouth feel and balance of this beer.

Sweet citrus with some combating earthiness and spiciness. Red brown in appearance and completely see through, has light tan head leaves sticky lace. Taste is bitter with rind and distinct citrus and grapefruit. A touch of heat and a bit of spiciness. To me this is top notch. Resinous and sticky, t his has a medium to light mouthfeel.

Pours amber with a decent white head. Good lacing. Smells of piney, resinous hops, and a strong sweet malt presence. Taste is bitter piney hops, and some malt. It lives up to it’s name. Not much nuance here, but I think you probably knowing what you’re getting when you buy this one.

Pours hazy orange with white head. Aroma is fruity, hoppy and piny. Flavour is insanely bitter with fruity-notes. Crazy beer.

Hoppy, skunky aroma. Bright taste. It was my second favorite in a recent Imperial tasting (after Lagunitas Hop Stoopid).

This is about as much hops as you can squeeze into a beer, i like it, but its a little over done IMO, I appreciate the hop, but that is pretty much all it is, and its so intense the hops lose a bit of their flavor. Still solid, I am sure many out there like it, just not a home run for me.
