3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Hazy light gold with a fat white cap of foam that lasts. Herbal, spicy aroma with slight metallic tone. Might have to try on tap. Decent flavor for DIPA but lacking balance; lots of hop resin but too little crystal malt for my taste. Finishses dry with peachy, grapefruit character. I like Ranger way better. May have to try this on tap instead.

22 oz bottle pour. Pours a clear golden color with a fizzy head to it. Light citrus aroma with light hops. Decently bitter, good flavor throughout. Kind of a bready malt flavor with a hop finish. Pretty good imperial to go to when options are limited. I enjoy this beer regularly.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks troubles. Clear golden. Pleasant citric hops aroma. Flavor has light malt sweetness, citric hops and a lingering bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Nice and very easy-drinking for 8.5%.

Poured from a 12. Appearance is lighter than I would expect from an Imperial. The aroma is your standard DIPA with a sweet nose. Flavor is slightly piney balanced out by a nice malty flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle to tulip glass, the beer pours a transparent gold color with a bright white head. Aroma is strong and consists of citrus, resin, tree sap, cut grass, slight mint and some floral notes... but a little predictable. Taste is hop forward but doesn’t feel like 85IBU. That said the hop flavour is well done and there isn’t any sweetness to speak of as it’s very faint. Palate wise the beer is quite drinkable. Nice and dry, carbo is medium, body is light. Overall: Nothing super mind blowing but still quite nice. However the bottle is a month past the best before which makes me wonder if that takes from the bitterness a bit. Still a nice drinking beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle with a date of 3/2/2014 - about 8.5 months old.
Aroma - Orangey. What I would expect from an IPA that sat too long.
Appearance - Golden color with some a half finger of fluffy white head.
Taste - Malty, orangy...medium mouth feel.
Palate - sticky and lively. Lots of carbonation.
Overall - I know it’s a better beer fresh. My fault for letting it sit too long.

Drank as celebration we were having a boy. Pours a light amber frothy head. Freshest aromas of pure chinook hops, almost like a half an oz was put into the bottle directly. Has the pine, light medicinal herbal aromas and slight peach. Flavors mostly strong pine, slight peach, and some stone fruit. High bitter, lightly sweet. No alcohol noticed.

Very good and very potent IPA. Great aroma and very smooth drinkable taste. New Belgium even calls it bitter, but I did not find it very bitter. Golden in color.
