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.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2014 On tap at Hop Valley in Springfield, OR. Aroma is piney and resinous, with hints of barnyard. Perfect hop/malt balance. Mouthfeel and taste begins creamy, sweet, and bitter, with a strong bitter, yet sweet finish. Hoppiness carries long into the aftertaste. An all-time favorite!

Pale golden and lightly hazy with a decent white ringed head with greasy film. Nice piney, stalky and limey leafy and pale crispbread. Initial taste is sweet citrus, white grapefruit and pineapple with minty back scratch of bitterness creeping in. Decent pulse of carbonation and a decent clean cloy. Finishes a pinch of veg with a decent white grapefruit bitterness with a creamy linger of high line sherbet citrus.

I’m usually not a huge IPA guy, but this one is VERY tasty! It has a great piney, citrusy aroma and a floral, citrus, hoppy flavor. Not overly bitter or bitey.

spacemonster (84) - Igo, California, USA - MAR 16, 2014
This is another winner from Hop Valley. Taste is REALLY balanced.....such excellent clarity of purpose. What a great beer. Taste is dead-on West coast IPA...citrus but not as up-front as their CITRUS MISTRESS. More old school ground and pound with excellent backbone of great malts. This brewey is one to watch.

Very nice Imperial IPA that is very well balanced, but still aggressively hopped. Very nice aroma of pine and citrus and all the bitterness you expect from a great West Coast IPA.

malrubius (2071) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle from Joe’s. Golden orange chill haze big bubble head and lace. Grapefruit peel aroma with some grass and bread and pine. Medium fruity sweetness with orange and peach. Assertive grapefruit rind and tangerine hop bitterness and very dry clean finish for abv. Medium body, light for abv. Excellent.

fkoolen (567) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2015
660ml bottle at home. Golden transparent colour, creamy white head. Interesting hop profile with light fruity (pear, faint sweet citrus) and grassy, flowery nose and a nicely crisp bitter sweet, piny hop character. Sufficient malty base to deliver a nice firm body and oily mouthfeel, but not overwhelming the hoppy tones. Lingering fruity and piny bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Great DIPA.

Butelka. Bardzo dobre równe piwo. Goryczka mocna, ale nie męcząca. Trochę straciło po ociepleniu, ale i tak bardzo polecam.

ogniskowicz (400) - POLAND - APR 27, 2015
Aromat: w zasadzie czysty chmiel. wyobrażam sobie grejpfruty rosnące w sosnowym lesie, tuż po letniej ulewie. brzmi idiotycznie ale to piwo tak pachnie, cytrusy, żywica, sosna - wspaniały aromat Wygląd: opalizujące mętne złoto, ładna, świetnie prążkująca piana Smak: mega wytrawne - niesamowite, zero słodyczy, totalny chmiel i nic poza tym - aromat, smak, niesamowita goryczka - wyciśnięto z tego chyba wszystko. Proszę zapomnieć o karmelkowo-żelkowo-cukrowych posmakach znanych z polskich IIPA. Wysycenie niskie, alkohol totalnie ukryty. Wspaniałe piwo.
