3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy burnt orange with small creamy head. Aroma is very malty sweet- sort of honey like- plus woody, resinous hops. Flavor is very malty, woody, and syrupy sweet like apricot as well as citrusy orange. Ends with sappy, woody bitterness and smooth, creamy palate. Not my favorite type of hopping, but good nonetheless....not sure if the hopping matched the malt increase for this IIPA tho.

Found a bottle in the grocery store singles section. Nice amber with orange hues. Good hop nose. Nice sweetness quickly tempered and beat down with a hop awesomeness.
Iím so glad I picked this up.

2.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On cask at Maxís in Baltimore. Opaque tawny gold with one finger white head. Brilliant nose on this beer. Big citrus and tropical hop aromas. I can identify tangerine, grapefruit, mango and pineapple. Amarillo and Columbus hops? Great nose...unfortunately, the enjoyment ended there. Iím guessing this was the end of the cask or the cask had been mishandled. The beer had a cardboard and soapy flavor. Not enjoyable at all. Some sweet malt and some hop flavors, but they in the background compared to the soap. Bummer.

I actually didnít realize this was an Imperial/Double until I just read the description on this site. They claim 72 IBUs, and if thatís the case itís very well masked behind a malty smoothness not usually found in stronger IPAs. A very drinkable summer beer.

This is by far the best IPA I have ever tasted. Fruity aroma and fruity taste which compliments this IPA and makes it its own.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
An intense IPA. Amber with beige head. Not very impressive visually but the nose was strong hops, grapefruit, alcohol. Great mouthfeel. Rich and thick. Flavor had kick to it. Hops bitterness in a good way. Fruity. Grapefruit juicy. Kick ass IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a translucent, dull orange with soapy white head. Aroma is grass, hay, caramel, and some resinous hops. Taste is lightly sweet, quite bitter. Hides the alcohol well. This is and will continue to be a staple beer I keep going back to.

The appearance gives this one away. It is a light amber color and offered little head or lacing. The over all flavor is OK, but this beer lacks the punch I expected from a "pumped up IPA".
