BeerNeedy (126) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAR 7, 2011
This is in the top ten percent of DIPA’s or Imperial IPAs if you prefer. The aroma literally jumps out of the 22 oz bomber alerting you to something special about to be poured. The appearance is superb with especially good lacing. The taste is big and bold with a strong alcohol finish that isn’t a bit cloying. As previously stated this one is right up there and not to be missed. Takes its’ rightful place in the rotation.

stevoj (3283) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 21, 2015
Bottle from the Co-op. Orange copper pour with one finger fluffy head. Big bold hop aroma, taste continues with more hops, assaulting the palate with some real dank bitterness. Bitter finish slides down the throat with some heat. A big, chewy, meaty DIPA. Nice!
