Big flavor, intense pine and citrus aroma. We keep the malt profile clean in this Imperial IPA to let the love lights shine on the fine Northwest hops.

Bottle thanks to ChrisO. It pours clear golden yellow with a small white head. The nose is soft, juicy, icing sugar, apricot, nectarine, tangerine and orange chewits. The taste is crisp, juicy, orange peel, nectarine, peppery, grassy, mild pine, oily throughout, lemon poppyseed muffin and light alcohol warmth with a dry, almost grainy finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Oily mouth-feel. Decent stuff.

Botella 65 cl en el momento en el kraken el 30-07-2015. (r159). Lote 00312 hasta 10/2016. Color ámbar claro anaranjado velado con espuma blanca poco persistente. Aromas y sabores más bien de una opa con predominio de maltosos y amargos secos algo herbaceos y ligeramente cítricos. Cuerpo medio de 9 vol fácil de beber. No está mal pero se queda más bien en una ipa.

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a soft semi-hazy bronzed orange color. No head nor lacing appeared. The smell started off with sweet onion running into a floral to grassy to citrus hoppiness. The taste was mainly bitter with a light sweetness from the onion part. The grassiness comes back slightly sweet and damp. Lingering sweet onion to floral grassiness starts in the aftertaste and runs into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light and leads to a damp smoothness to it. Overall, a bit different to me for a DIPA, what may lack in appearance (no head nor lacing) makes up in smell and taste. I’d probably have again.

tomekk1978 (889) - Ząbki, POLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Aromat: przyjemna kompozycja cytrusów, owoców tropikalnych oraz żywicy, które wspierają zbożowe, ciastkowe i lekko karmelowe akcenty słodowe. Słodycz ściera się z nutką alkoholową. Wygląd: barwa złota zgaszona do zamglonej. Żółto - biała piana, drobno pęcherzykowa, umiarkowanej wielkości i niezbyt trwała. Smak: wyraźna karmelowa słodycz, wsparta solidną chmielową goryczką z owocowym posmakiem chmielu oraz alkoholem. Balans wyraźnie po stronie chmielu. Bardzo wysoka, ostra i długa goryczka na granicy zalegania. Krągła do tęgiej pełnia, wysokie wysycenie, nieco szczypiące język i chmielowo- alkoholowa końcówka.

Jeśli jakieś DiPA zrobiło na mnie wrażenie to właśnie to. Idealny balans między alkoholowością i słodyczą i ziołowością z chmieli
