Hops! Lots of great hop bittering, though you don't get as much aroma as you might think. Pours a great clear amber, light head. A nice touch of dryness on the finish

Pours light gold with small white head. Big hop aroma. Citrus tropical fruit and raisins and dried fruit. Balanced bitter taste and full body. Exceptional!

Great aroma and full hop flavor to the point of sweetness. Nice malt, but could stand a bit more with all the hops. A little too much carbonation give a harsh, biting mouthfeel. Overall quite nice.

Golden color with a nice lace behind. The aroma is complex, a nice spicy blend of hops and caramel. The flavors are also complex, citrus fruit and pineapple hop flavors, with warming alcohol in the finish. Medium bodied.

Good citrus and floral aroma even detected a hint of bubblegum? The flavor is a bit less potent and complex than the aroma but that isn’t particularly unusual. Astringent bitterness on the end. Nice mouthfeel and good body without being too heavy. No trace of alcohol. This definitely rises above the normal Harpoon offering and actually stands up very well against the Founders Double Trouble I just had. I definitely wasn’t expecting this.

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)

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.

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.
