Draft at the brewpub. Pours murky yellow orange and served with no head. Mild grassy nose and pretty damn bitter. This comes of like just a jumbled mess to me.

10 oz pour into tulip at Rich O’s. Very generous pour with practically no head. Dark orange color, scent of grapefruit, spicy floral hoppy aroma. Taste is of sweet grapefruit which is unusual for and imperial IPA usually the bitterness over powers, but it is a nice change of pace. Very easy to drink high gravity brew.

LarvalChemist (29) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Arrived an opaque, light amber with a white head. the nose was spicy and floral, definite hops. The hops, as the name would imply, dominate the flavor. The ending is rather long and dry with hops striking the middle of the tongue. Overall a rather light and spicy drink.

Fresh biting hops. Dangerously drinkable because it feels and more like a premium IPA, not a IIPA, in that it isn’t super heavy, viscous and filling. Great balance – the malt doesn’t take over as it does in many IIPA’s. Not overly sweet. Great. Fresh.

GTMW! Light amber pour. Lots of celery in the aroma. Flavor is more celery, grass, some orange peal. Long bitter finish.

islay (890) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Small sample, on tap at Great Taste of the Midwest. Consumed on 8-9-2008. Pours a clear gold with slow-rising bubbles and frothy, white head. Piney, salty, briney hops aroma; pickle-like smell. Soft, malty taste with a dull, dry finish. I’m not really digging this hops combo. Medium body. Soft and smooth in the palate.

ContemplateBeer (1434) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Some definite, but not overwhelming, floral hops and doughy yeast aroma from the start. Golden yellow appearance. The floral hops definitely carry the flavor, as the title suggests. The palate was surprisingly smooth with a hint of citrus at the finish. A pretty good beer, can’t knock it much, just not my style.

BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Indiana Microbrewers Fest: Golden hue with an okay head and lace. The aroma seemed a tad weak with mild citric bittering hops, bready malt, and dusty yeast esters. The taste was balanced with citric tones and slight peppery finish over a layer of basic malts. The mouth feel is oily, soft and warming. For an DIPA this comes up short but not a bad beer.
