A robust renovation of the India Pale Ale. Assertive dry-hoppying provides an aromatic telltale nose, indicative of the bitter symphony to follow. Bold hop character with lively grapefruit and citrus notes. 20° Plato, Alc. 9.4% by Vol.

Poured from a bottle with a hazy copper color and a decently foamy white head. Has an okay pine aroma. Taste begins with a sweet citrus flavor before turning into a dry pine flavor towards the end. There is a light amount of hops for an imperial IPA, and even the flavor is lighter than I’d expect. This is a decent beer overall, but not a great imperial IPA. I prefer New Holland’s Mad Hatter to this.

courtesy of sidetracked, thanks! nice dark amber to light brown pour with a creamy 1 finger head. aroma is faint, but nice. the taste is big and heavy, lots of malt, east coast style iipa. lots of clandied floral tastes, medium bitterness to balance, great mouthfeel and the abv is well hidden. very thick aftertaste, thick body, bordering hoppy bw, and similar to flying mouflan side by side.

Thanks for sharing, bro! This brew was very chewy, earthy, resinous, and malty. Lacked a light of the brightness and fruitiness that I like from IPA’s and their variants.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUL 15, 2009
Copper colored pour with a small, frothy, white head. Piny, resinous, grapefruit aroma with a nice toffee, toast, and caramel balance. The flavor is lots of very fresh hops lending to a luscious pine, orange, and ruby grapefruit flavor with a great toasty caramel malt background and a hint of cherry. Very nicely balanced. A bit of floralness comes out on the finish too. This is a very refreshing double IPA in that it’s not cloying like so many can be yet still has a nice assertive hop profile without going overboard. The body is full and creamy with gentle carbonation.

Pours a cloudy orange. Aroma is vegetal (boo!). The taste is cleaner, but still only average.

bgburdman9 (861) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Aroma was some citrus, light pineapple, and bready malts although not very hoppy overall. Flavor was bitter, astringent, alcohol, with some hop oily feeling on the tongue. Pretty sweet overall. I would like it a little drier. Not bad but not a standout IIPA at all.

2010 vintage pours dark but has a thin oily cap that makes me think this may be slightly off. Looks more like a bitter than an ipa. Aroma is muted. The malts hit the tongue first & is followed by a strong slap of alcohol. Hops are muted & I’m thinking the balance is off here. I’m also thinking this bottle is off. Would love to try another vintage to see if my hunch is correct but living from Canada excludes me (unless y’all wanna do a swap).

Hopmaestro (847) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2015
Aroma is sweet and hoppy, peaches with grapefruit. Taste is actually on the sweeter side, but it grows on you and slowly turns over to the hoppier side. This beer made me really happy, and that was not really expected. Maybe that’s the key thing with many beers, expect nothing and get positively surprised? A really good Imperial IPA.

Orange brown pour into tulip glass. Lingering white head an eighth inch thick. Very piney scent. Medium body, feels a bit foamy. Sweet and bitter. No citrus or flowers. Finishes a bit bitter. A buttery maltiness comes out as well.
