Dacrza (634) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2013
DATE TASTED: August 29, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Duvel snifter... OCCASION: drafting while draughting (reused pun, for draft number 2)--a big-bodied beer for a big boy draft!... APPEARANCE: beautiful soft orange with a steady, centered eruption of bubbles; thick, creamy head is staunch and off-white--yes, perfect... AROMA: the shock and awe of the IBUs is on display, with the majority of the scent of a pine cone slicing through an orange, mango and pineapple simultaneously into a hop bomb shish kebob; as advertised ...PALATE: creamy, stirring thickness with an immediate warmth that seers, then cradles the throat; balanced overall, with a reasonable aftertaste...TASTE: delicious citrus (plum and pineapple pervade) are unrelenting; the alcohol metes its energy out as the glass drains; the aftertaste of funky yeast is a little difficult to take pleasure in... not knowledgeable enough to construe the good news/bad news of the label’s CO2 hop extraction explanation, I defer to my senses and buy into its overt toasty malt/hop balance, mostly--not as much as Adrian Peterson being my #1 pick... OVERALL: this beer is BIG, blessed with a peripheral attractiveness and a substance that follows up reasonably on its initial promise...impossible to remove the hop from the teeth, like the Altoid of the beer world...worth the bomber and its relatively fair price tag...

Its a good beer. My buddy Lemon left it for me in 22 oz bottle. Drank the bottle and it was nice but IPA not my gig.

Really nice imperial ipa. It’s a great imperial for those that don’t like bitter IPA’s. It has enough malt to really balance out the hops. Very nice change of pace ipa.

22oz bottle from Wegmans in Geneva, NY for $6.99. A solid beer. The bitterness is on point. A little too sweet for my taste but I like them with little to no sweetness cause I love my bitterness and hop flavor. Great hop flavor in this brew. They did a great job with that. Poured a nice very slightly dark amber with a beautiful head that after a few minutes started to look like a mountain range. Decent lacing throughout. Overall this was a great imperial and I would get again.

Tropical grapefruit notes on the nose. Grapefruit remains strong on the tongue balanced by hints of 'herbal'.

OMG, I love this beer! It is my favorite IPA. Very well balanced hops bitterness with a strong malt body. And the hop nose! Best when fresh. You can really discern a difference.

Great, complex flavor on this beer. Intense flavor and bitterness, but pleasant at the same time.

Nice malty flavor followed up by a dry bitter hoppy taste. Great flavor would recommend to any one.
