Oakes (14830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2016
A light haze. A mellow amber colour. Not much head. Hops are basic, indistinct, with a slight melon character. Sweet and a bit boozy, with orangey sweet character. The alcohol is actually masked quite a bit by the hop, which has a fairly sweet overlay.

fiulijn (18056) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2016
Tasting at Matt’s
Golden color, clean. Deep hop aroma, very resiny, a bit of manure. Lean, just lightly sweet, good crackery malts, and a load of resiny hops, citrusy too.
For such a strong beer, it’s extremely well balanced and drinkable. Excellent.

mcberko (12383) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2016
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy copper golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of resinous hops, some candied sugar, and bready caramel malts. Flavour brings out lots of resinous hops, a touch of candied sugar, and caramel malt. Impressively well-balanced for a 13+% IIIIPA. Excellent.

Ferris (10735) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2016
Bottle - Pithy citrus oily notes, touch of dank. Clearish gold with a decent white head. Sweet, orange and sweet oily notes. Nice and no booze.

superspak (4300) - Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2016
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 12/2/2015. Pours crystal clear deep golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, peach, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, honey, cracker, biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, peach, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, honey, cracker, biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, peach, mango, melon, lemon/orange rind, pine, honey, cracker, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, fairly grainy/creamy, and slightly slick balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding big imperial IPA! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to sip on for the huge ABV. This was impressively dry and well attenuated on the malt sweetness for the 13.1% ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

On tap at IBU Pub in Hillsdale, OR. Clear orange with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is just nice and hoppy big with citrus. Taste is orange, powerful, hoppy and wonderful with a citrus punch and bitter finish. Full-bodied and boozy on the finish.
