3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can courtesy of beerbastard- thanks Joel! Pours a slightly hazy dark yellow color w/ a big, fluffy white head. Decent aroma of faint, piney hops & sweet, bready malts. Bites the tongue initially w/ bitter hops & alcohol. Moves into un-ripened nectarine, grapefruit pith & pine. Get some cracker & caramel in the middle. Finishes a little more bitter w/ the alcohol showing up again. More sweet than I typically like my DIPA’s but not bad overall. A hard category to be "great" in.

Have to say for an imperial IPA, it's kinda lackluster, does have an even amount of malt and hops but it fails to give off a extra punch of either, though strong it hides it's abv very well, not a session, drink carefully

22 bomber to cervoise. Pours cloudy gold. Creamy/frothy off white head. Aroma is big. Grapefruit rind, pine, cedar, resin, grass, caramel, and floral. Taste is caramel malts, butterscotch, booze, citrus and all blended very well. Finish is grapefruit, caramel, butterscotch, and bitter that doesn’t last too long for an IIPA.

Really nice drink. Thanks kathouse. Pours a hazy light peach colour. Really nice fresh herbal and spicy hop notes. Some fresh fruit too. Nice earthy and musty flavours.. Very balanced and the hops are nicely restrained. No booze detected. Pretty great stuff.

From a 12 oz can. Hazy yellow orange body with a small head of white bubbles with nice lacing down the glass. Big grapefruit hop aroma with a bit of caramel to tame the aggressive hops. Somewhat underwhelming hop flavors for an imperial ipa,but still very evident. Bitter grapefruit rinds,subtle florals and a bit of caramel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from shop on the Strip Vegas - hazy gold with a thick lacy white head. Aroma seems a nice balance of citrus hops and sweet malt. Hoppy bitter flavour well balanced with malts. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, some alcohol warmth. I usually prefer less balanced (more hoppy bitterness), but this is very good.

Hazy golden, with a foamy white head. Citrus and simcoe aroma. Sweet citrus and hot alcohol, simcoe is there but this is a boozy beer. Not really bad and dirt cheap at 3.99 for a 22oz
