Smells like caramel. Quite hoppy. This is about 6 months old....but still quite strong hoppyness. Smooth and balanced. Surprised its 8%. Well done Idaho.

evergreen0199 (1929) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine, Bellevue, Seattle, WA, USA. A golden/orange/amber coloured pour with a thin off white head on top. Hoppy, grapefruit, citrus aroma. Tastes hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, pine, quite bitter. This one grew on me, not what I would call a typical DIPA but I liked it.

Dal9000 (164) - Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Immediate aroma of "sweet hops". Pours deep amber with a large tan solid foam head that rises above the glass and stays. Immediate very mild hops with hint of citrus. The hop flavor then stays on the tongue and slightly builds for a few minutes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

rejtable (1223) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2013
Pours clear orange with limited head and almost no lacing. Nose is quiet, maybe some grassy hops. Notes of grapefruit, some light cereal, and a pretty big bitter finish made up of grassy stuff. Tastes are very light sweet and heavy bitter. Medium body somewhat sticky with lively carbonation and a long lasting big bitter finish.

bomber - pours like honey in color with voluminous offwhite head and thin lacing. Nose is floral and citrus almost like a flower shop. sip introduces grapefruit and wild hay. fairly bitter but I do not know how fresh this is. dry and a little harsh.

shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 2, 2013
22oz bottle. Red orange pour with a thin layer of sticky white bubbles. Rich swirl of caramel malt and chewy hops. Nice full body with some earthy notes. Alcoholic finish that is a bit off putting and cloying. Overall good.

Scoring it low because it doesnít really taste at all like a DIPA. Definitely some funky sourness which isnít bad for a sour beer and in that case it would be quite good. Has some leathery flavors just like a good sour Belgian, but itís labeled as an Imperial IPA. Maybe thatís why the dog is laughing. I accuse this beer as being mislabeled.
