3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Listed as an imperial IPA but it is definitely much more on the barleywine side of things. Very dark, rich caramel malt with some rye pepperiness to it. Hops are potent--spicy and vinous, but very much balanced by the malt richness. A good beer, but unexpected richness.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at falling rock tap house in Denver. Definitely eye in the aroma and some hops but subdued for green flash. Very dark for an IPA with a tiny ring of cream colored foam. Tastes slightly spicy, with rye and a good strong malt backbone. Very slight booze burn in the aftertaste. By far the least hoppy beer I have had from green flash but it is a welcome change in this beer. Great palate, thick and easy drinking at the same time. Green flash does so many good IPAs and there are some better than this, but road warrior is still worth a try.

Very much has the rye they mentioned and the color is as perfect. All mineral after taste but I didn’t eat anything and that could change it. Tap

12oz bottle from Good Spirits Co. Muddy brown, reasonable head. Pine caramel aroma. Sweet spicy chocolately malt flavour. Sickly rye alcohol aftertaste. Not for me.

Bottle: Dark gold color with a super hoppy aroma of juniper. Wow - a mouthful of juniper to follow. Awesome. My favorite kind of IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from the bomber into a shaker glass. Dark copper color with a tan head. Aroma is mildly sweet with some molasses notes, rye spiciness, and earthy hop notes. Flavor matches the aroma well. Medium/full bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall this is pretty good, but a little too sweet for the style in my opinion - seems more like an imperial red.

Bottled. Pours clear amber with an average off-white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, piney and grassy notes. Seet flavor that ends up dry and solid bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice DIPA. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap pour at Muddy Pig in a tulip glass. Commonshawn in the house as well. Very attractive reddish hue and almost a full finger of slightly tinted white head. Aroma is typical of a heavy handed IPA with hops and a bready characteristic. Taste has the rye, bready spice quality that you expect. Well balanced against a healthy dose of hops. Little malty sweetness but nothing substantial. Really one of the better options of this style. Comparable to the Lagunitas Imperial Red. I’m go to war on the road with this effort.
