Bomber. Nice amber color with a surprisingly persistent white head. Nice pine and citrus aroma, very standard IPA fare. Hops, pine and floral start followed by a nice sweet finish, malty. Nice medium strong palate. The best double IPA for the money, $3.99 for a bottle in northern NJ, nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz Bottle: Crystal clear copper pour w/ a soapy off-white head that falls away quickly. Aroma is piney hops w/ some citrus undertones. Flavor mimics the aroma w/ a nice bitter bite. There is a little bit of toasty/bready malt mid-palate, but if you blink youíll miss it. Finishes w/ piney bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep, slightly hazy amber, off-white head with lots of lace. Fruity hops on the aroma, tart citrus. Medium carbonated feel. Tart citrus and piney, grassy hops. Tartness covers up the malt and flavor of te hops a bit too much.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip.
Poured a golden amber with a smallish head. Lacing is thin but lasting. Carbonation is obvious. Not a strong set of things on the nose - some citrus (orange and grapefuit), pine and malty sweet aroma. I had this probably too cold initially and it improved substantially (no shock) as it warmed. Starts with some bitter hop taste with grapefruit and a honey malt backbone. Sticky and moderate in mouthfeel and dryness, this is pretty balanced. Some bitter in the finish but the sweetness holds throughout. While people seeking out a heavy hop explosion may not be thrilled with this, at the price and a reasonable ABV, I will seek this out again. Good tasting brew.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours out cloudy golden oarnge with a nice thick frothy head that is white and produces nice lacing. the body is a cloudy golden sunset color with few bubbles rising from the bottom. the aromas are a spicy hoppy kick with strong pine and apple hit that almost smells like diluted pine sol. the taste is really spicy but balanced out really well with the malt and it leaves a nice yet strong bitter aftertaste that does not kill your tatstebuds when it finishes. it has good palatibilty for this style and is medium bodided and has nice carbonation that leaves a really nice mouth feel. really good beer for the price, probally worth more.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is of floral, grass, and some fruit. Pours a light amber with lingering lacing. Taste is like flowers and hops. A dry hop finish on the palate. A very well balanced and refreshing beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I gotta say. this isnít the best IPA Iíve ever had, but itís pretty damn solid. For an IIPA it should have more body to the taste, however, given the price of this beer it is totally worth it, great value, and not that bad of a beer at all. go for it, Itís a great buy if you need to pack a few bombers to pre game

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
POURS AND LOOKS LIKE A RUN OF THE MILL GOLDEN BEER. AROMA IS OF SPICY/SWEET FLORAL HOPS. NICE BITTER HOPS FLAVOR MIGHT BE A LITTLE LIGHT TO THE SEASONED BEER DRINKER . STILL QUITE REFRESHING. GOOD AS MOST DOUBLE IPAíS ARE, YET NOT STANDING OUT IN THE CROWD.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle. Pous a hazy orange with a nice, white head, lots of lacing. Nose is bitter, piny hoppy, a nice yeasty stink, dried fruit. Medium-full body, soft, not too much carbonation, but surprisingly light feeling on the finish. Taste is heavy towards the hop side with the malts not really coming through til a bit of a sticky aftertase, but it is balanced by the fruitness- grapefruit, maybe orange. The hops are piny and earthy, bitter and delicious. Finish is a little crisp and very bitter. Quite enjoyable and reasonably priced. Is this unfiltered because I hated their other unfiltered IPA?

Great flavor, color and aroma. On the sweeter end for an imperial IPA for me. More of a double than imperial.
