3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
1000, swingtop, capped. Pours an opaque dark brown, nearly black. Enormous dense surging creamy tan head, tons of suds, dense sheets of lace, just an absolutely gorgeous beer to look at. Nice rich mango and grapefruit nose, fruity and acidic both. Creamy medium body, almost thick, with lively carb. Toast, caramel, nuts, pine, and grapefruit on the mid-palate. Very pleasant, refreshing, and drinkable, if not a startling revelation. Nice crisp piney finish. Thoroughly well-executed DIPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle [1L]. Pours a cloudy orange-copper with an average size lasting fluffy white head. Lots of hops in the sweet aroma, citrusy and resiny, but also lots of bready malt and some alcohol. Flavour is also hoppy along with a lot of malt and quite a long, big bitter finish and a bit of an alcoholic bite. Average bodied. A pretty good DIPA.

Bottle at Papsø. Courtesy of fiulijn.
Glowing ruby, creamy head. Flowery hops in the aroma. Sweet malt giving way to an eclipse. Spearmint, euchaluptus.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose of caramel malts, toffees, and lightly tart fruity hops. Pours dark copper, nice creamy head, sticky lace - probably the best part of the beer. Flavor is moderately sweet with caramel, toffee, some darker fruit is there as well. Hops are medium assertive - earthy, a little floral, a little fruity, a little tart. Kind of whatever. Not problematic, just kind of boring and uninteresting and not worth the twelve bucks I paid because the label said imperial ipa and I am trying to win internet competitions.

Cask at GCBF. Perfumed hop aroma. Cloudy amber, low head. Grassy and citric hops on a light body, mellow cask conditioned mouthfeel. Quite drinkable - dangerous session ale.

[4730-20120818] Growler. Lightly smoked tangerine rind hops aroma. Hazy, dark orange body with a quick foamy off-white head. Bitter grainy orange pip flavour. Medium-full boozy body. Interesting to sample. (7/4/6/3/13) 3.3

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2010 On tap at the Alibi Room - pours a golden/red. Aroma of skunky hops, herbs and marijuana. Flavour is potent herbal hops with a lingering bitterness. Fairly unspectacular IPA, but at the same time refreshing.

Sampled at Kramer’s Campground Brewdown 2012. Pours an amber body with light white lacing. Aroma is sweet, fruity malts and light grassy hop. Mouthfeel is light with notes of fruity malts, toasted malts, and light hop characters. Double IPA?? Hmmm.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very tasty. At 8% it doesn’t seem overwhelming, and it still pretty crisp . Plenty of malty flavors, of course, but also crisp grassy, citrusy hops. Dangerously drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet caramel malt base with berry-like fruity sweetness, plenty of citrus, pine and floral hops in the nose. Clear golden brown body is topped by a decent white head that recedes slowly to a low cover with some nice lacing. Nice thick chewy caramel.bread-like malt base supports strong but balanced hop bitterness. Floral hop flavours in the aftertaste. Medium body with pleasant effervescence. Really well done. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle purchased at Brewery Creek in Nov-09.
