real lovely choice of hops. Very sweet but also very nicely done. I easily caught the mix and a 6 pack was easily consumed with boss freakin’ nachos. This is real close to Hop Stooid but is a bet sweeter. Good stuff.

Sampled during CBC 2013. Orange pour with a small khaki head. Nice aroma, tropical fruits, melons, and citrus, hints of dank resin, light malts. Slightly disappointing flavor, more sweet maltiness, not as much fresh fruit and hop. Not bad.

Hazy golden appearance, thin white head. Aroma is grapefruit hops. Flavor is bright grapefruit hops with very light body. Not too strong given the alcohol

Bottle - dark yellow with a sheet of lacing (lots). Has a resin hop aroma (strong). Has a light sweet taste and also mildly bitter. The mouthfeel is slick and the body is medium and the finish is dry. I think it’s the Mosaic hops that I like the most about it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle.
Aroma:Slight fruity notes, grassy hops
Appearance: dirty water brown, doesn’t look very tasty
Taste: resiny hops, fruity,grassy, earthy, cardboard
Palate: Thick resinous hops coat the tongue
Overall: This acts like it wants to be a double IPA, but it lacks everything that makes that style drinkable, the hops are lacking. Footbalmed!

12 oz bottle poured into my ipa glass. Pours a clear golden orange color with a thick off white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of tropical, peach, citrus, pine and resin. Tastes of all the same things in the smell with caramel and a slight nut flavor also. Mouthfeel is oily and slick with medium to light carbonation and a dry finish. This is a pretty tasty imperial ipa for the price. Pretty balanced, and the high abv is hardely noticeable in the flavor. I will definitely be drinking more of these in the near future.
