Bottle. Pours clear yellow. Aroma is melon, pine, citrus, all that. Flavor is good. Hoppy spruce pine, sticky resin, honey aftertaste. Not bitter at all. A little malty and alcoholic for my taste, but a fine brew overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great beer when you're looking for something with some kick. This imperial IPA is malted in all the right ways.

climberbob (228) - Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle. Big head. Dark straw color. Strong grassy floral hop aroma. Noticeable hop profile in taste but not too bitter - seems to be smoothed out by malt profile, higher alcohol and sweeter finish. I am not an IPA fan or hop head but enjoyed it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice orange color with minimal head. Smell is citrus and some sweetness. Taste is citrus and malt with some of the wheat shining through. Slight alcohol taste. Nice offering

64 IBU. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 07.02.14. A: Tropical fruit. Pineaplpe and mango. A: 2 finger fluffy head. See through straw yellow body. Beautiful. Great lacing. T: Pineapple, mango, tangerine dominate. Pine and malt are subtle. P: Creamy. Bubbly enough. O: This is not as hoppy as regular Sumpiní Sumpiní. There is some alcohol heat too. I was looking forward to this one, but it is a little disappointing. There are a lot of flavors going on and some donít mix very well. It was ok.

Shared bottle, pint glass. Shiny light gold. Little head. Typical Lagunitas hoppiness, but tempered by the wheat (I think).

Hopmaestro (301) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2015
The aroma is full and rich, complex malts and kinda heavy with a slight hint of citrus hanging on its back. The taste is like the little sister, a little round from the wheat but fresh and fully bodied. The hops is not as dominant, but they are there. There is actually a little much of alcohol breaking through in the end to make this a real bomb. But it is still up there as a top brew!!

Very interesting here. Pours golden into the glass, with a fizzy head that leaves wispy lacing. The nose is of piney resin. Flavors are sweet, a bit different than the traditional malt billing for an Impy IPA. The wheat almost pulls away from the citrus flavors noted in the "traditional impy", save for some lemon and lemongrass. A decent grain bill, though, almost like an Imperial Saison. The pine grassy bitter finish is hefty and lingers appropriately. The full body and active carbonation make for a zesty mouthfeel that substantiates the palate. A definitely different take on the Double IPA, but not unwelcome whatsoever. Prost to the creativity here!
