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.

Bottle in trade from ROBORB. Thanks! Pours a nice rich amber color with a medium offwhite head. Smell is aged hops and malt with a hint of spicy hops. Taste is still lightly hoppy, but definitely far from a fresh DIPA. Lightly bitter, with some orange notes, and a caramel like backing. Better than I expected for a year old DIPA, and probably really good fresh. Thanks for the bottle!

Bottle@Yespr’s - golden pour with small off-white head. Aroma and taste is fruity citrus, slightly toasty caramel malts, good sweet/bitter balance, slight spice, and a decent bitter finish.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2007 22 oz bottle, 2 days after its release. Pours a brilliant dark copper-amber with off-white head. The aroma is fruity as all get out; it’s really heavy on candied pineapple and apricot, with some pine and toast mixed in there, too. The flavor isn’t as citrusy as the nose, but is intensely piney. As it approaches room temperature it also takes on a very herbal hoppiness. There is a bit of earthiness in the middle, and another burst of pine toward the finish, where most of the bitterness waits. As it subsides, it leaves a very pleasant toasty aftertaste. Not exactly what I was expecting, but I’m definitely pleased. It was worth crossing the mountains for.

Amber colored pour. Small white head. Plenty of lacing. Malty caramel aroma. Taste is the same, with a slight alcohol bite and a light bitter note. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale golden orange pour with a thin soapy white head and light sticky lacing ... aroma of grapefruits and caramel malts .... taste is of grapefruits, caramel malts and a nice kick of bitter and pungent hops ..... lightly floral with a bitterness that lingers .... mouthfeel is a little slick and oily .... finish is dry with a nice long lingering spicy hop bite .... solid and the abv is hidden well

Rcvd in trade. The appearance has a golden amber colored body that is slightly transparent with a thin half finger white foamy head that dies immediately leaving some speckled spider web lacing clinging pretty hard to the glass. The smell has biscuit/cracker malt-like subtleties coated over top of the hops - basically combined nicely with a tropical yet slightly citrusy sort of hops. The taste is bittersweet as its nicely combined all the way throughout the entire drink. It has a bittersweet aftertaste with a dry sticky finish. On the palate, she sits about a medium, comes across semi-sessionable, and has a carbonation that is good for a DIPA as there is nothing obscure and still gives an adequate sharpness most DIPA’s give, surprisingly enough, ABV isn’t really noticed. Overall, this is a very good DIPA that I would have again.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Bottle from Ross, the monroe transfer authority. Thanks to Navin for the free shipping. Pours hazy orange amber with an off white head. Aroma of rich toffee malts and citrus hops. Medium to full bodied with a slight syrupy texture. Initial flavor of toffee and apricot that transitions to a sharp hoppy middle. Finish is dry with a bold grapefruit rind bitterness that lingers, with a very small amount of alcohol detected. Definitely one for the hopheads, and not bad at all. Beer is a little better than than the score indicates. However, this is second string to beers like Hercules, Dreadnaught, Pliny, Hopslam, etc. Good to see some East Coasters taking a stab at IIPAs.

Bomber - pours deep gold with white head. Nose is floral caramel. Flavor adds resin. Wow, surprised with this. Malty and balanced taste wise. Torpedo on steroids.
