COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Poured from 22 oz bottle purchased from whole foods in Bend. Pours golden color with thin white head. Aroma is citrus pine and grass. Taste follows with a fair amount of pine and citrus ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Part of a flight at the brewery with Dadbra. Another ipa swimming with citrus and pine. The flavor is pretty juicy and piney. Doesn’t quite pop as much as some of their other offerings, but still pretty solid.

Hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and airy, fine carbonation. The malt is clean, as promised on the label, and is slightly sweet with a touch of cream. Hops are spicy pine. Some drying alcohol aniseed, but no real heat. Touch of citrus before a semi dry finish. Decent and drinkable.

Had this at the Brewpub in Springfield. Second IPA of the night after the Citrus Mistress. Big hop flavor with an even taste in the mouth. Very solid beer and very easy drinking for a DIPA.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 On tap at Hop Valley in Springfield, OR. A perfect beer. Killer hop aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Perfect hop/malt balance, with a strong bitter, yet sweet finish. Hoppiness carries long into the aftertaste. Amazing!

For the high alcohol and hop content, this is the shit. Fantastic flavor with a delicious bite. Try this on for size

Golden colour. Strong citrus and pine in the aroma and flavour. Feels quite smooth and rich. Alcohol is well hidden.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is piney, citric, hoppy with a nice, light caramel backbone. Flavor is bitter, full citric and piney influences. The malty sweetness hits you in the back with a nice boozy touch in it. Very nice beer.
