12 ounce. Intense alcohol aroma. Old grapefruit and bitter taste. Malty and sugary. Amber color. Good, but overpriced.

Die_Kapusta (191) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2010
Hazy bright orange pour with a warm white frothy head.

Aroma is really nice and complex. I get sweet flavours of caramel and honey, heavy fruitiness, leafy notes, floral notes, hoppy flavours of thistle, orange peel and grapefruit.

Taste comes at you like a shower of complexity and deliciousness. It´s sweet with a slight earthiness. I get honey, pine, grapefruit and massive hoppiness. I can sense the rather high alcohol content but it´s balanced enough with it´s body and hoppiness to handle it.

Delicious! One of my favorite IPA’s.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 9, 2010
A: The pour is an amber-orange sort of color with a thin white (maybe slightly off-white) head. S: A decent hop aroma comes through initially. However, it’s quickly followed by burnt rubber and alcohol. Not really what I was hoping for. T: There’s a fairly substantial bitterness to this beer, with a moderate amount of malt sweetness and some slightly caramelized sugars. A sweet citrus flavor along with fusel alcohols and rubber. M: The body is medium with a low to moderate level of carbonation. D: Ah, Mikkeller and Brewdog, everyone’s favorites. I wasn’t really a fan of this one, obviously.

caesar (6644) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2010
Bottled. Hazy dark golden color, medium lasting white head. Aroma of hop, grapefruit and pine, also some malt, hint of cookie. Slight sweet taste, mostly bitter. Pretty much balanced and smooth DIPA.

olsvammel (5976) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2010
Bottle at SBWF (Brill). It poured a hazy brown-orange liquid. Malty smell with some cockies. Very malty beer but also some nice hop aroma. Deep with flavour yet easy to drink.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 5, 2010
(Bottled) Reasonably fresh and fruity aromatic hops masked by stuffy yeastiness. Flavor is woody-hoppy, mildly fruity and grainy-alcoholic, yeasty and slightly stuffy. Seems like a nice combination of hops, but wrong yeast for the job. Or maybe it’s the oatmeal, dunno. Not bad, but not quite as good as it should be, IMO. 5635

obguthr (5646) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 30, 2010
From Butters @ 12th Richmond Gathering: Orange peel nose. Clear orange, thin orange head. Orange peel flavor, finishing with tea. Alcohol well masked.

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Bottle… Clear orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. The nose is a mélange of pineapple, resin, funky socks and pine – earthy as Hell. Full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor offers big time citrus and tropical fruit bitterness – grapefruit rind stands out. Bitter, funky, earthy finish.

glennmastrange (2665) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Bottle. Moderate to heavy malt notes of roasted ad caramel, heavy pine and grapefruit peel for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with background notes of date, toffee and pepper. Head is large, frothy, off-white with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy, medium amber/orange. Flavor starts moderately sweet and acidic, then the long finish is lightly sweet and acidic, and heavily bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a soft carbonation and a moderately astringent and tangy finish. This is exactly what I want in a DIPA. Great hop profile, perfect balance and a nice mouthfeel. Too bad it’s $6.75 a bottle and hard to find.

jgb9348 (5677) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Deep muddy orange tinted copper coloured body with a fast-fading large bubbled head. Aroma of super strong, fresh, mouth-watering hops. A lot of resin and yeast in the mix too, but the hops are obviously the strongest. Full-bodied; Strong alcohol and yeast flavours at first then give way to a lot of piney and citrus hops with a large mouthfeel and an apricot sweetness at the end. Aftertaste is potent of hops, showing a lot of alcohol and a very bittered taste from the hops - drying as well. Overall, a good imperial ipa that at least is sold in 33 cL bottles. A strong beer that is good for the style and definitely showcasing the hops. I could have done with a bit lighter beer and the alcohol to be not so present, but it is a good beer for the style. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 04-September-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 26-September-2010.
