Bronze in color with a lacy head. Citrus taste with a bitter finish. This is fantastic. Chewy texture with a taste that stays with you. Just get it.

oldrtybastrd (4337) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2016
ours a deep dark orangish amber color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some bready malty tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste. This is one huge bitter hoppy bastard.

ATulloch (194) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2016
Bottle shared with the bro, pours a clear orange with a frothy head. Aroma of squashed prunes, grapefruit, hay, peaches and lemongrass. Flavour is sweet peach with a citrus hit and a big hop chew. Lovely.

electrotype (555) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2016
Extrêmement décevante comme bière. On dirait une ale commerciale mais boostée aux stéroïdes bon marché. C’est très malté, avec une certaine amerrtûme pas vraiment intéressante. Le corps est rond, est bien, mais c’est pas mal la seule chose que j’aime dans cette bière qui peut se résumer, au bout du compte, en un liquide malté, sucré et aux houblons quelconques.

flying_pig (1357) - SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2016
651ml bottle from Good Spirits Co. Wine & Beer (£7.50):
Great stuff, this one is a hop bomb to start with thanks to the huge hit of resinous pine to open things up but there was also plenty of sweetness & malts coming through from the middle onwards to help balance things out. I particularly enjoyed the tropical fruits, especially the mango that featured quite early on but the entire beer was a good one.

Nice, strong floral bouquet on the nose. Hoppy, but not over-powering on the tongue.

Bawelt (375) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAR 24, 2016
Nez de fou : litchi, mangue, ananas, un fond un peu plus vert d’herbes, de légers agrumes... La mousse est extraordinaire pour une imperial IPA, épaisse, tient extraordinairement bien. Elle a néanmoins un petit goût savonneux et très herbal (non ça ne vient pas de mon verre). Sacrée amertume ! Une bouche très très sèche avec une sacrée longueur herbale et légèrement florale. L’attaque a un très léger maltage très rapidement effacé par un fort goût de citron et de kumquat, très soutenus par le côté herbe (d’où la forte impression "savonneuse"). Cela donne une pointe acide. Bien que je ne sois pas fou de ce genre, il faut reconnaître qu’elle a un sacré caractère.

Turboninja (427) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 17, 2016
Bottle@home, from Constantino’s, Cleveland, USA. Medium/strong aroma with resin and slightly overaged, sweet mango. Deeper golden color with medium natural white head and slightly hazy liquid. Strong organic taste with balanced overaged mango, resin and hops. Some sweet malts. Medium/narrow taste spectrum and long hoppy aftertaste with sweet malts and fruits. Medium body with light/medium carbonation. Overall, nicely organic combination of sweet and sour nuances and even some malts can be detected. Bit simple.

Freaky_tiki (969) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2016
Bomber from Total Wine. Pop the top & worship the hop. Big whiffs of pine & tropical orchard. Such a beautiful hop perfume. Deep notes of resin, mango chutney, orange marmalade & honey dripper malts. The real game winner here is the two-for-one prize of high octane hops & high drinkability. Where many double IPAs inevitable either bury the hops in too much malt or forget that drinking should be a pleasure. Sure, I’d be game for even more hop firepower but this is such a pleasure to drink. I can only imagine how much better this would be fresh & on tap.

Aroma: citrus, mango, pineapple, herbs. Appearance: clear golden color and white head. Taste: medium citrus bitterness, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, resin, herbs, nice malty backbone, semi-dry.
