COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

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!

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2004
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.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 5, 2004
Draft. Hazy amber color with creamy off-white head that lingered well and left nice lacing. Malty, ciney, citrus aroma with perfume notes as well. Truly a hop nectar, surprisingly mile upfront, sweet, smooth and creamy with a bihg hop rush of pine, citrus and an amazing grapefruit finish. Creamy and full body. Over all a nice ale, though not as satisfying as others of the IIPA style due to milder maltiness.
