A great American double..er...Imperial IPA. Citrus start to finish . A hint of grapefruit and pine. A big beer in ABV. If you seesome buy a four packer of this stuff you won’t regret it ( If you like biG IPA’s)

Purchased in Asheville, NC (unknown source)
Doesn’t smell very hoppy, but tastes excellent. Pours with beautiful color and leaves a great lace.

Semi-opaque copper, fading to yellow with slow, thin white foamy lacing. Hops, honey and alcohol in nose. Balanced taste with constant undertones of hop bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I poured a 12 oz bottle into my glass tulip...
The beer was a bright, orange, copper color with a thick off white head that was quickly reduced to a thin soapy layer. It smells just a bit musty, along with sugary grapefruit and a caramel backbone. The taste is mostly bitter citrusy hops with a hint of pine and some other softer, non-bitter fruity hop flavors. The liquid is thick, but not as syrupy as other imperials, it has low carbonation and a slightly dry finish. Leviathan is a well done brew, highly drinkable considering the high ABV.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a transparent golden tone with minimal head. Aroma is very sweet citrus, grapefruit with underlying floral notes. Taste is overwhelmingly sweet, with a spicy (peppery), bitter aftertaste. The alcohol isn’t in-your-face, but it doesn’t try to hide either. Elements aren’t well balanced here, ending with an almost sickeningly sweet and sticky result.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours with a thick, white head. Color is a peachy-amber with a moderate-high carbonation. Aroma is very piny and resinous. Taste is much more smooth and approachable than the initial aroma would indicate. Although not the most unique or memorable IIPA, it is both balanced and a solid example of the style.

A good solid Imerial IPA from the brewers of my favorite IPA - Harpoon. Big hoppy front with lots of boozy taste. Finishes with a malty backbone and a floral taste. Great stuff. I’d buy it again. Not my favorite Imperial IPA but, SUPER GOOD!

From bottle to tulip. Nice dark amber color. Piney fruity aroma and very bitter malty fruity flavor. Not a fan of imperials but this is pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2013 USA bottleAroma-very rich with a flowery spice and hops.Appearance-deep amber orange with a thin light head which disappeared quickly with little lacing.Taste-comes on strong and bitter, heavily laden with hops. More forceful than subtle or complex though certainly not bad.Palate-lightly carbonated not rough on the tongue but also not the smoothest either.Overall-a bold flavored ipa, a good one to try but not one i would likely search out.

This is like, significantly better than the other things I sampled at harpoon. Smelled pretty nice: floral, hoppy, herby, but comparatively, smells good. not too sweet.This one actually has a taste that carried throughout, nice hops, good balance, and finish.
