Formerly a winter seasonal known as Winter IPA.
Palisade hops were added throughout the boil and dry hop schedule, along with high alpha American hops for bittering, Noble hops for aroma and a few other varieties in-between to balance the heavy malt profile. Rum soaked Oregon oak spires added during the final stages of fermentation bring flavor notes of caramel and vanilla to complement the bitterness.

From a can. Very malty for an IPA. Nice citrus hops pairs with the caramel and vanilla flavors.

Brackish brown, with no head. Aroma is sweet and oxidized malt, with an orange liqueur note. Tastes sorta the same, but not much about this is quite right. There are some burnt caramel notes into the finish, but overall, this tastes like an inexperienced homebrew IIPA. $3/16oz

maekchu (2505) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 14, 2015
Can. Roasty, sweet fruit nose, with some vanilla and light piney hop. Dark amber brown color, substantial fluffy off-white head. Very malty initial, dark caramel sweetness, grass, herbal notes. Very pleasant flavor changes with the hopping in mid and final. Medium-heavy body, creamy. Pretty nice.

dark clear amber pour. Aroma apple skins, caramel, wood. Tastes big tobacco and wood. Very astringent aftertaste. Caramel and leather like a british pale ale.

This had some odd sweetness to it (that I’d guess is from the rum chips but it was too subtle to pick that out). Aroma is nice and piney with some soft carmel and citrus. Flavor much the same but too many things compete for your attention. OK.

Will start with it grew on me onna counta my daughter went out of her way to provide it. Over carbonated for certain. Infested? Possibly, but will say that I do most often persevere unless I v=cannot tolerate something, and I f I I I honestly tried. I did not much care for this even though I did not hate it in the end.

dmac (4438) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 16, 2014
16oz tall boy from Spirits Point Boro. Poured all beige head, with ample settling a nice hazy honey brown body appears. Aroma of oranges, wort, caramel, toffee and orange marmalade topped toast. Palate is so fizzy its practically undrinkable. Flavor of older oranges, old bread, medium toast, caramel malts. Meh undrinkable because of the ridiculous carbonation.

Sledutah (5574) - Utah, USA - JAN 17, 2014
16oz can picked up at the Portland Airport
Gusher, pours hazy dark amber with a huge off-white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is malty, stale hops and caramel. Flavor is caramel, bitter hops, metallic and medicinal burn in the finish
OK, but I wouldn’t rush out to buy another.

hopdog (9453) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Pint can. This one poured all head. Stale hops, grass, earthy, and toasted caramel. Over carbonated and all over the place.

Theydon_Bois (11111) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2013
On the train from Hereford to Inverness, can liberated from OR thanks to Wingman Willis, 18/10/13. Hazed orange amber with good sized off white headage. Nose is toasty malts, citrus fruit, bitter orange, grass, earthy hops. Taste comprises orange sherbet, earthy hops, orange pith, caramel malts. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop bitterness in the finish. Drinkable but pretty low end for the style.

16 oz can from New Seasons - Pours a hazy brown with a white head. Not much hops aroma at all for an imperial IPA. More of a bready malt aroma with a hint of vanilla. Tastes move like a high alcohol amber than an imperial IPA to me. OK beer. Not my favorite, but I’ll certainly finish this one.
