Hoppy, crisp, and citrusy, with an underlying malt character. Made by blending lots of malted barley, wheat, and a judicious quantity of Cascade hops. A "big" beer!

Floral hop aroma with some malty sweetness in the nose. Cloudy golden in appearance with a quick fluffy head and lots of lacing. Lots of hops in the flavor, some grapefuit juice for sure, daces lightly on the tongue, and a little burn at the end to remind you that this is an Imperial Pale. Very enjoyable pale, indeed. Thanks to Skyhand for the hookup!

on tap at the jolly roger - tasted both the regular draught and the double dry-hopped version. both had typically big lychee and pine aromas, some mango sweetness and medium bitterness. the dry-hopped version had a chewier finish but otherwise there was no great difference and both were nice

Perhaps the bottle I got was old, but in any case it did not have the pungent aroma of Cascade hops that I was hoping for. It is wheaty, slightly metallic, crisp, and the hops taste more like they are from Germany--but here, again, I may have had a less-than-fresh bottle. Notwithstanding, it is a good beer.

Clear, pale amber color, nice, fresh white head atop, settling into a narrow ring. Aroma, citrus, grapefruit, peachy, banana, a bit of pine, pineapple, even, but none too pronounced. A little slick, and oily. Mmm, big impact on arrival! Huge entry on the palate, brimming with hoppitude, bristling with piney resins, juicy, tarry associations, just a hop-tastic blaze set loose on the tastebuds. Mellows out right quick, and there’s just enough malty feel in the body to provide appropriate balance. Just enough, though, not a plentitude or anything, the hop phalanx at the for is still in firm command. Taste like a pale ale, but with this blaring, blazing, utterly reckless cadre of hop devastation setting fire to any semblance of balance...not that that’s a bad thing...in fact, I like it! Quite an interesting bottle of brew they got going on! Cheers to that!

Tap@The Jolly Roger. I ahd two versions of this beer, the regualr one and also a double dry hopped vesrion called "Double Dry Hoppy Imperial IPA". Both version were from the Jolly Roger and bothe were on tap. The regular was typical of an Imperial IPA. Very hoppy, heaps of lychee and pine, pretty sweet, with the hops of course bittering it out a bit. The double hopped vesrion i also scored exactly the same, but this was perhaps maybe a touch dryer and definitely more hoppy and bitter, both versions were tasty.
