jgb9348 (4707) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Deep amber coloured body with a thick, four centimetre tall tan head - very nice. Aroma of pungent grassy and very piney hops with some resin and a bunch of malt and alcohol - very nice nose as well. Full-bodied; Deep piney and almost spruce flavours throughout with a bit of bitterness from the back end and really does taste like gin (hence juniper berries) with a bitter finish. Aftertaste very earthy, herbal and showing some good flavours throughout - with a deep alcohol bite and a pungent, full flavoured finish. Overall, a very nice Imperial IPA showing some new flavour profiles, a good body and a filling, yet not too high alcohol beer. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Hi-Times Spirits in Costa Mesa, California on 05-August-2012 for US$6.37 sampled at home in Washington on 23-September-2012.

Medium brown, malty aroma, ample head. Flavor is primarily bitter. Strong notes of juniper and other stuff that simple does not work. Harsh and hard on the palate. Unpleasant.

Pours a red copper with a nice off white head and great lacing. Aroma is heavy juniper and sage, somewhat off putting at first but mellows a bit and some citrus notes come through. Taste has more subtle juniper and sage along with citrus and pine. Interesting.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 12, 2012
Pours a very deep amber/orange with nice off-white head. Sweet malt, floral hops, grapefruit, caramel, herb, and a definite flavor of sage. Complex and full bodied. This stuff is sweet, bitter, and spicy. I am very glad to have tried it.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Interesting beer with a lot going on. First impression is that it’s very tea-like, with yerba mate qualities. Juniper and sage are definitely there as well. Toasty malts. Piney hops. Balanced sweetness and bitterness. Drying, tannin-like finish.
