The grand daddy of them all, Imperial Jack - robust, malty and heavily hopped. Who said "jackrabbits" don’t bite?.

I’m not sure how you could make a beer this bad accidentally let alone intentionally. No aroma whatsoever. It’s best quality is that it looks like a beer. Tastes of the dankest, funkiest hops possible. If you can use leftover stems to bitter a beer this is the beer that just may have done it. I give it a 3 overall because I’m pretty sure it isn’t poisonous.

Smell is great. The like a strong bock with a very bitter finish. Just a little too strong for me.

Ungstrup (34311) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2016
Bottled. A dark golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, alcohol, and over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, malt, caramel, and over ripe fruit, leading to a bitter finish.

Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Floral fruity aroma. Caramalt, resin, pine, and some citrus notes in the flavour. Bitter and somewhat boozy finish.

puboflyons (3098) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 30, 2016
From the 650 ml. bottle "Trader Joe’s" batch. Orange amber pour with a quick lasting white head. The aroma brings out a musty cellar and perfume character at first with a kind of floral and burnt character. Medium body. The taste seems to have a metallic and odd malt character with little in the way of hops. It was just boring to me.

Poured from 650mL bottle. Slightly hazy light orange with minimal off-white head. Cereal corn-like malt with very subtle hops, mild metallic notes. This is the budweiser of DIPAs.

rayaron (1369) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAR 6, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel, Tel Aviv. Thanks to who. Slightly hazy orange with white head. The aroma has lots of honey, alcoholic with notes of overripe fruits. Bitterish flavor with notes of overripe fruits and honey, alcoholic. Medium. Unpleasant.

Derek881 (1250) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Purchased a bottle under the Boatswain label, and poured into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a cloudy, sediment deep amber-copper color with a good-sized foamy/creamy off-white head with average retention, cling, and lacing. Its aroma featured grainy and pine hops notes along with some barley and spice. The taste was mostly a bitter and sour grainy blend with some bread and earthy tones, and a sour alcohol finish. The body was mostly wet and full, with average carbonation and thickness, and a strong alcohol presence.

A disgusting IPA, with almost no hops to it. Good high alcohol content though.

22 ounce bomber from Traders Joe’s. Limited aroma. Leans sweet with more malt than hops. Wouldn’t buy again.

TheBeerGod (6010) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Bottle under the Boatswain Double IPA moniker. Aroma is fruity and floral with soft malt notes. Taste is very fruity with berry notes, light citrus, floral hops and sweet malt. Body is medium with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Finishes with more fruity notes, berries, light citrus, sweet malt, floral hops and a touch of caramel.
