4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a can. Deeply golden with a lasting froth. Smells very fresh and piny with a touch sweetness. Full on the tongue with a silky, creamy texture. This high octane brew is a classic. High hop rate, fat malt body with an excellent sense of freshness. Pour me another will ya?

Smells like a mixture of grapefruit and molasses-very strange but nice. Not much head. This is a good beer. Hoppy but not overly bitter till the very end. Best beer yet from JJ. And the first I’d buy in the store.

Draught at The Pub Monte Carlo in Las Vegas. I had never heard of this brewery before and this beer is one of those rare gems that you come across, no expectations, just drink and see. There was a bold fruity hop aroma bursting out of the glass. The flavour was great and right up there with the best IPA’s tha I have had. The flavour was well balanced and not overpowering in the hop department.

This is one of the better DIPAs out there. Very well balanced malt and hop wise, and the slight sweetness really works. Bitter but not a hop bomb.

Just had the freshest batch of this beer shipped to me from a friend in Vegas, and I really enjoyed this beer. A Nice even pour with a small amount of head (i usually enjoy a bit more) and had a great orange/amber color. a great balanced flavor, which is great for those who don’t like to be punched in the face with a stong bitter flavor, don’t get me wrong, there is a lot going on, it is just all even flavors. A touch more hops would be nice, but nowhere near necessary. Overall, for Imperial IPA’s being my favorite type of beer, this is one i will be able to drink consistently.

Very solid head that last. Actually impressive how long this head endures. Nice hop aroma. This was from a can, as soon as its popped, the aroma comes clear. Taste is sweet with a Hop punch at the end... Citrus herb. Excellent Job. As good as some great IPA’s from Great Divide.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Intensely hoppy and aromatic, expressed through vibrant notes of orange zest, lime and mandarin. Precise carbonation leads to massive bitterness, buttressed by a rich malty body full of toast and caramel character. A huge IPA yet all aspects in excellent balance.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a clear amber with about a finger of thick white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, pine and tropical fruits. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet. Mostly caramel and citrus. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Overall, very good. Not as good as some other beers out there, but I would gladly drink this any day.

22oz bottle picked up at Lee’s Discount
Appearance: Pours clear golden with a medium sized off-white head and good lacing
Aroma: Grapefruit and pine resin
Taste: Fruity, caramel and pine resin
This is my kind of IIPA, great. Hoppy but not over the top bitterness. I would love to try this fresh. Next time I’m in Las Vegas I need to find this on tap.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured this at a good temperature with a mammoth, foamy, frothy, thick, cream-colored head that settled very slowly and plenty of lace. Color is a clear amber with many bubble trails. Aroma is mainly fresh hop composed of citrus and then resin. Can’t hardly smell much else. Flavor’s like nose, fairly dry, mostly bitter with complimentary carbonic tang. Body is a bit thin and carbonation is decent. Finish is like flavor with bitterness being very long; not much sign of the alcohol. Too bitter without the balance for me.
