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.

murky bronze in color with a creamy whit head that laves no traces on the glass as it settles.aroma is of cotton candy,oranges,caramel malts,and juicy fruit gum.the flavor boasts much of the same.this really tastes more like a barley wine to me.i wonder how old this bottle is?

Bottle from Proof. Deep golden pour with a bubbly white head. Sweet pale, biscuit and bready malts with piney and grassy hoppiness. Thick, creaminess in the body sweet malty caramel notes in flavor with piney, grassy bitterness. Pretty tasty beer, just nothing that really stands out or over the top.

Bomber from elmatador00 - thanks!! Amber color with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet and citrusy/piney with lots of malty/bready sugar. Taste has a good amount of citrus and floral hops and lots of big bready-sweet malts. Nice mouthfeel overall. Good brew, but way too malty to be among the best in the style. I enjoyed it (and not to piss on anyone who likes the maltier DIPAs) but I would rather have a good barleywine if I want this much malt with my hops. Still very good for what it is.

Pours an opaque mahogany copper with a thin cream colored head. Nose is overly sweet pineapple juice and caramel. The flavor is a bit better balanced with some earthy, dry hops. Still on the sweet side though, with a smooth mouthfeel.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Bomber. Pours an attractive slighty cloudy copper-amber color with a thin white head. Grapefruity hop aroma on the nose, but not well-defined. A moderate alcoholic tone is present as becomes more apparent as it warms. Medium-bodied. Hop taste is strong, but instead of a grapefruitiness, there is a soapy/solventy mix that doesn’t finish well. A dissapointment.

22oz bottle. Beautiful nose and presentation but falls apart on the tongue. Broad aromas of mint, cilantro, woody resin, cinnamon and brown sugar. Pours a nice cloudy, dark copper with a creamy off white head. Lots of sweeter malt on the tongue. More along the lines of an ASA than an IIPA. Mild bittering grassy and resiny hops but the brown sugar malt aspect dominates over the hops. A touch of oxidization as well. Medium bodied, creamy with a lingering grassy bitter finish. Probably loads better fresh. Thanks Matt!

Aroma is peppered with floral overtones. Appearance of a golden clear IPA with a slight off white head taste of citrus with a long palate of a slight bitter strong flavor

22 oz bomber from Brawley’s in Charlotte. I loved this beer. Poured into a tulip glass. Poured a slightly hazy gold/orange color with a medium off white head. Aroma is citrusy hops as the beer warms. Flavor was well balanced for an IIPA. Sweet malt dominates at first, which gives way to floral and piney hops. Medium/full bodied with excellent carbonation. Great beer. Wish I had purchased more than two.

22 oz bottle split between three people. Color was ruddy orange with a good soapy head. The smell was intense hops but not pine or citrus. the taste was very hoppy with some tropical fruit flavors but not quite a West Coast. The only complaint I had with this beer was the astringency on my tongue. it got worse as I got to the bottom of my glass. Still, nice to be able to try this one.
