Society and Solitude #3: The series of experimental Double IPAs continues. This one is hopped with ample amounts of Columbus and is reminiscent of… an Imperial Harlan.

Can’t decide which I like better: this or Heady Topper. Definitely up there with the top Double IPAs I’ve tried. Complex aroma and taste, with a very clean but lingering finish. Truly lovely beer. From a 750ml bottle fresh from the brewery.

Medium statured white head, good retention and lace.earthy, piney nose, juicy. body is almost medium with a soft carboantion, lil resiny. Nice juicy, fruity hop flavors with a light malt undertaking, almost west coatish. Dry fruity finish with a tame bite. Still very nice. Props to dtmets84 for the bomber.

Lightly hazy orange color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, strong pine, herbal, some orange, and light citrus. Taste of citrus, pine, herb, light tobacco, and a grapefruit finish.

RoyalFlushing (324) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2012
On tap at Boilermaker. Poured a cloudy deep golden orange with a medium sized creamy white head. Big citrus aroma of tangerine, clementine, papaya, followed by hints of caramel malt and piney hops. Citrus is more apparent in the flavor and peachy apricot notes introduce themselves, wonderfully balanced by a pine resin mouthfeel and a smooth finish.

Draft at Jose Pistolas... Nice pour! Bright orange in color, good head. Smells great. Lots of tropical fruits. Taste just like it smells. Fruity, light grapefruit, orange, light mango. No one particular flavor stands out, well balanced. Light/medium body. JUICY! Really easy to drink. Overall I would of been happy drinking this all night long

callmemickey (3891) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 @ Boilermaker. Appearance is medium orange-straw. Large white head. Spotty lacing. Grapefruit, mango, pineapple and a fair bit of resinous hops. Somewhat muted for an imperial. Flavor is a bit drowned out by an aggressive (but not crazy) bitterness which distracts a bit from the grapefruit and tropical fruits. Medium bodied. Moderate to high carbonation. Dry finish.
