Not as impressed with this DIPA. Looks great and smells nice but just a little too unbalanced.

A lighter-than-usual double-IPA, though it has the sweetness factor working. Sweet with a pretty intense hop bitterness. Not a heavy malt sweetness, but more like very light syrupyness. A decent DIPA with a lighter, less sweet characteristic compared to others. Good, but not great.

Tap at The Bar in Rothschild. Pours amber with lasting off white head. Rich hops and IPA finish. Full bodied. Love it.

Draught. Clear amber with a frothy delicous creamy head. Nose has pine, passion fruit, fruitiness and sweet malt. Big sweet Mouthfeel. Taste is similar but with a table sugar like sweetness. Moderate dry citruslike bitterness.

There is a strong citrus smell with a grapefruit dominance and maybe a little bit of peach. It is definitely hoppy. It’s golden in color with a full bodied fluffy white head. A powerful citrus taste with grapefruit in the forefront. It is a lively flavor full of taste. It is bitter, but in an extremely pleasant way.

Wonderful! The calypso hops in this bad boy really give it a unique flavor to the world of imperials. What a great moment!

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2015 Pretty darn good Imperial IPA. I’m from Colorado, but I’m glad we brought it to Florida. Their beer game is catching up, but still lagging behind.

Pleasant aroma..pours a nice copper color with a robust head..smooth and creamy in the mouth with a moderate bitterness...light fruity finish. Very drinkable big beer that’s not overpowering.

12oz bottle from a 6er. Pours copper amber, white head. Aroma’s kinda piney hoppy. Taste is kinda bitter with that characteristic New Belgium meh. Not much to recommend it; other buyers at my local agree by leaving it to moulder on the shelves.
