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.

Bomber from Fred Meyer. Hazy golden/orange with some dark colors. Sweet grapefruit nose. Some peel as well. Somewhat pungent and bitter up front, followed by sweet grapefruit juice. Finish is grapefruit peel with a touch of sweetness.

Copper body with a poofy head. Splendid resiny, coniferous bitterness comprises the bouquet. The body is bitter, but the bitterness quickly fades to reveal a subdued twangyness. Floral and fruity hop with gushes of grapefruit.

Swaroga (1545) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2015
Butelka 66cl. OCZY : piwo jest przejrzyste o wzorowym, złocistym kolorze. Piana jest niewielka ale bardzo trwała i dobrej faktury. NOS : jest moc. Piwo ma mocne nuty żywicy i sosny. Do tego bardzo wyraźny i można by powiedzieć książkowy zapach mango. Skórka pomelo i tarta. Profil słodowy nie jest tak tortowy jak zwykle. Przypomina mi słody pilzneńskie często używane w belgijskich triplach. USTA : piwo jest umiarkowanie słodkie ale klejące o nutach biszkopta. Całkowicie zdominowane nutami chmieli. Gorycz jest mocna o nutach pestki cytrusów, żywicy i szyszki. Nie zalega i tutaj słody pełnia wzorowo swoja funkcje by w posmaku ugasić ten pożar goryczy. ODCZUCIA : wzorowe piwo po każdym względem. Pewnie można lepiej, bardziej dekadencko, czarująco ale tutaj jest wszystko na topie. Referencja stylu bez dwóch zdań jeżeli chodzi o wciąż orzeźwiające i łatwo pijalne DIPy. OCENA : smak : 8/10 pijalność : 8/10 styl : +1

runaway (59) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2015
22oz bottle pours hazy amber with thin white lacing that floats on the surface like sand dunes. Aroma is grapefruity pith and pine. Taste is bittersweet anise and wood rosin. Palate is medium body, medium carbonation, a little soapy.

RexTalionis (2708) - FINLAND - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle. Unclear orange in color with an off-white head. Like walking in a wet piney forrest filled with fresh citrus fruits. There’s some malty biscuity vibes in aroma as well. Citrus in taste and nice malty backbone makes this one quite delicious. A refreshing brew with some bitter grapefruit making the finish quite crisp.

Sarlacc83 (1017) - Oregon, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle given to me as a gift. Sweet. A: Light apple cider color with bubbles racing through the middle and a white foam lingering around the top of the glass. Gives me a fair amount of lacing. N: Potent pine and earth on the forefront, underpinned by grapefruit. Touch of pineapple as well, but this leans more towards acidic citrus. Cracker malt base. More damp leaves and black peppercorn. I would say this is pretty straightforward hopping. T: Very, very bitter. One of the most bitter beers I’ve had in awhile. Very little sweetness. M: Desiccating, resinous medium body. Alcohol burn. Moderate carbonation. O: West Coast DIPA. This will strip the dryness right out of your throat. I wish it was more complex, but if you’re looking for hop murder, this will be right up your alley.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy light copper pour with a frothy off white head, malt and pine aroma, taste has light pine, mango, taste is not as hop forward as I’d like what is there is pine and tangerine, sweet caramel, bitter grapefruit.

Benzai (9160) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle @ home. Hazy light orange color, medium sized white to off-white head. Aroma is malts, hops, oranges, pine. Taste malts, hops, a hint of orangepeel, lightly resin, quite some pine and spruce and piney bitter. Medium body and carbonation. Not as fruity as you might expect, but I like those piney bitter ones.
