COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An aggressively hopped and higher gravity version of our Kashmir IPA. Five different hop varieties added at seven different times in the brew kettle, hopback, whirlpool and fermenter add to its complexity. This Imperial IPA also differs from our traditional Kashmir IPA with the addition of over fifty pounds of dry hops, adding a spicy nose. Over two hundred pounds of hops were used in this limited fifty barrel batch. The robust, malty and complex hop flavors and aromas are best enjoyed with an extremely stiff upper lip.

DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2013
22oz bottle, from my local Kroger, Iím pretty sure. Either that or my local Whole Foods... Enjoyed from a shaker pint. Mostly clear amber orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good bits of lace. Lots of particles in the body make it kind of hazy. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Pretty easy drinking. Moderate to bigger bitter, light sweet. Alcohol is very well hidden. Grapefruit, pine, light caramel malts. Tasty, impressively easy drinking stuff. It made for a great party beer.

S_Side_Smitty (392) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Pours light golden amber with a thick white head. Aroma is faint syrup and very "pilsner-ish". Taste is a nice blend of pine and grainy malts. For a DIPA, this one is pleasant and not too heavy.

mcberko (5368) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2013
22 oz. bottle, sent from Daniel719 (thanks a lot, man), pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma isnít the strongest, with resinous hops, candied caramel malt, and some residual sugars. Flavour is quite sweet and boozy, with loads of candied caramel malt, resinous hops, and alcohol. The alcohol is surprisingly not well-worked in. There is quite a lot of residual sugar as well, which overtake the hop profile. Decent but flawed IIPA.

Cybercat (2989) - Georgia, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Pours a pretty clear amber with a thick and fluffy pale buff head that leaves some good lacing. Strongly hoppy aroma has mostly evergreen and resin, with an undertone of Mandarin orange. Bold, hoppy flavor assaults the palate with resiny, rather bitter hops and sour orange plus a touch of honey. Firm, smooth texture is fairly fizzy and leaves a hoppy and slightly sweet finish. A hundred kilos of hops? Sure shows!

Oginme (35) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Sometimes the focus is so much on one aspect that the beer is out of balance. The pour was nice, a bright yellow color with a good head. Aroma was strongly hoppy: citrus and piney. Taste had little malt character to balance out the strong hop flavors which hit the tongue pretty quick. strong pine, resinous flavor which overwhelmed the taste buds. Medium bodied and fairly well carbonated, the finish was a lingering resiny, spicy taste which hung around in the mouth and built up sip after sip.
