Amber color with a thick white head. Aroma is nice piney hops. Flavor is resinous, sticky hops with a strong bitterness in the finish. Aftertaste is a touch on the bitter side, but not too bad.

12oz bottle of expired beer thanks to some douche bag on HBT!!! Pours an Ice-T brown color with a small beige head of foam. Aroma of rotted citrus and loads of malty expired IPA! Taste is herbal, malty, lemon ice-t, and pine. Taste is better then the aroma, but once again an expired beer from a shitty trade!

Bottle. Big citrusy nose, and a bit stinky, rude fruitiness. Bright but hazy copper color. Caramel, tasty hops, some overripe fruit, sugar. Some balance in finish. Medium body. Not quite a caramel bomb... but almost. Very nice aromas.

Bottle to taster (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a slightly hazy pale burnt orange with thin eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of bitter and piney hops with a bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Solid beer.

12 oz bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel and lightly toasted malts, resiny, citrus hops, moderate bitterness, I think I like this a little better than the average, yes it’s malt forward but decent beer.

12oz bottle, shared with local raters. Picked up from Habersham in Savannah on 2/23/15. Hazy red orange color. Thin off-white head. Some bits of lace. Impressive hop on this... Good bigger grapefruit, spicy hop, some pine. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Some biscuity, mild caramel malt... But this is mostly hop-forward. Impressive; better than expected.

-Aroma: Strong bitter grapefruit.
-Appearance: Dark iced tea with thin off white head.
-Taste: Slow burning whiskey like alcohol presence & strong grapefruit bitterness with a slightly lemony after bite.
-Palate: Medium - Full bodied with lingering bitterness.
-Overall: Good Imperial IPA that I would compare or describe as a Cold Jim Beam with hops.

Hazy dark amber pour with a frothy white head. Aroma was of muted citrus hops and lots of caramel. Flavors were slightly sweet, light citrus, dark fruits and a bitter hoppy finish. Plus mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. This almost drinks like a "light Barleywine" as this one has some age on it. Rather nice.
