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.

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.

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 3, 2011
A: The beer pours a hazy golden orange color with a finger of white head. S: Grassy hops with a bit of pine and citrus peel. Lightly floral with just tons of bready malt and sweet toffee and caramel. Maybe a touch of sweet peaches. T: Caramel and toffee flavors with a light floral and piney hop flavor. Moderate bitterness with a hint of alcohol and citrus peels. More sweetness than anything else. M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation. O: Another failed, sweet, malty IPA.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2011 22 oz. bottle, pours orangey amber with a white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, grapefruit, caramel and citrus hops. Flavour of fresh resinous hops, loads of tropical fruits (mango, peach), some grapefruit, balanced beautifully by caramel malts. Really well-made.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle:   Deep hazy orange, moderate frothy off-white head, fairly nice lacing.   Big piny and pithy nose.   Candyish sweet hop and citrus peel up front.   Not a big malty example, nor a big overly bitter hop-bomb.   A slightly astringent hop bitterness is the foundation for this one.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Strong citrus peel and pithy hop bitterness on the finish, slightly sweet, yet a little astringent.   Decent, but more of a 1½ IPA.
