Amber hazy with medium off-white creamy head. Nice fruity aroma. Pleasant strong bitterness with sour citrusy notes, some touch of sweet. Long lasting strong bitterness in the aftertaste

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2015
Rating #1472 - 27.02.2015 On tap @underground_yeg. Pours a darker amber, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is doughy, pastry malt, and a bold punch of pine, citrusy, grapefruit hops in the mix. Taste is boldly hopped, pastry dough malt meets the fruit bomb, lots of pine resin, and citrus notes throughout. Beats me.

mariuspoenari (419) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
Pours a hazy golden brown with a decent head. Smells of honey, caramel and flowers. Smooth texture, tastes like strawberries, huge notes of honey, a slight bitterness to balance the sweetness. The alcohol is almost undetectable.

9.75%ABV. Imperial IPA. Tapped out a deep amber. 18ºSRM. Nose is sweet, with aromas of fresh warm barley bread, roasted acorns and some other rich nutty aromas of roasted almond, hazelnut and pecans. Mouthfeel syrupy and soapy. Palate has a funkly umami that is reminiscent of sardines or any other equivalent small oily fish in a tin. There are of course nutty, roasty, caramel and toffee like flavours. There was a sweet alcoholic palate which I for me was just a little much. A very personal thing. I wouldn’t say it was a bad thing, just not for me. Finish is bitter and a little cloying. I guess that was the play on words they were hoping for "IBU". Well there certainly was plenty of BUs to go around!

Thranemeister (5) - DENMARK - OCT 28, 2015 does not count
Caramel cloudy look. It has a light citric aroma, but not much. Perhaps its too cold. Very rich and sweet taste.

330 mL bottle. Slightly hazed amber, thin beige head. Floral and pine hop aroma. Taste is big on the hops, piney, resin, fairly bitter finish. Overall nice balance though.
