UPDATED: JAN 10, 2013 The more you drink this the more you love it. Well hidden alcohol. 5.69 @ Grocery Outlet. This hits on all cylinders. Packed with flavors. Toasted sunflower shell, hops, bitterness and body are very enjoyable blending together in unison. Donít pass it up! Rerate: I had tis again at the same price! This beer is frickiní unbelieveable! I may be my DNA beer match! Dry toasty sweet hops! Brilliant. Bad Ass Beer!!!!!

Fashawn (413) - Montesarchio, ITALY - MAY 23, 2015
Aroma pungente di aghi di pino,sulle prime. Intenso e lungo, lascia spazio con un poí di attenzione alla buccia díarancia, frutta tropicale dolce come papaya e frutto della passione, e poi sul finale lievemente caramello. Giallo oro, schiuma bianca e persistente. Limpida e bellissima. Frutta dolce, pesca, buccia díarancia. Pompelmo per líamalgama, pane al miele in sottofondo. Liscia e dal corpo medio, tessitura lieve, quasi leggera. Finale con gli aghi di pino.

The definition of a great imperial ipa. Pours golden orange with some carbonation. Great hoppy flavor that gently lingers on the palate.

Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Fredís the man! Pours copper with a creamy/foamy/bubbly light beige head. Hop aroma is dank! Itís not harsh. Itís just very heavy duty. Floral and citrus, probably. Full bodied. Itís got a lot of light roast malt. Itís almost suggesting barley wine. But there is a load of citrus, floral and resin hop. Curl around this and take a nap. Succulent. Finishes both dry and sweet. Taste is just wonderful. Makes my salivary glands ache with pleasure.

Nice tanned body with a ring of head. Lovely nectarine, sweet hop aromatic bliss intermingles with grain dust. Like a resplendently delicious wheatwine. The body is replete with juicy hoppiness and tropical fruit. An IPA freshening on the vine, were it too stay on much longer, it would indubitable ripen and age into a pleasant old barleywine. Tasty stuff.

Intense and bitter, this beer is very hoppy and piney. The finish is more malty than I like, but overall itís a decent Imperial IPA

650 ml bottle courtesy of freddy. Pours an amber-yellow color with a big off-white head. Very potent nose with lots of citrus, especially oranges and tangerines. The flavor is that of a hoppy-citrusy IPA with grapefruit, oranges and papaya set in a caramel malt base that is rich in toffee. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: Very tasty brew, me like.

Poured from a 22-oz. bomber into a pint glass. About two fingers of head. Color was caramel honey toffee. Brownish white lacing with some bubbles on the top. Wet, uneven and sporadic film on the sides. Smelled lemon citrus hops up front. Also some lime piny notes in there. Sweet floral notes. Fairly malty, but still refreshing on the nose. Very balanced taste, could hardly taste the alcohol. Lemon citrus hops really came through here. The maltiness seemed to balance the citrus hops out. So smooth. Medium body. Average carbonation. Slight bitter, but smooth finish. Refreshing feeling. Really liked this beer as I do with most of the ones from Karl Strauss. Smoot h and very drinkable.

Huge pine-citrus aroma in an amber pour. Taste is surprisingly laid back = superb for the strength. Perfect hop forward balance with a full sweet malt body and a sustained clean bitter finish. Has to be one of my favourite DIPAs - will need to directly compare to the competition (oh joy)!
