TattooJack (294) - Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Poured from the bottle of the 4-pack, sweet, hoppy and strong, with a bitter aftertaste. 10% is hardly noticeable because I’m wasted and didn’t see it coming.

2015 edititon, 10% ABV. Poured from bottle, slightly hazy amber with medium low off white head. Aroma full of yoummy notes, marmalade, caramel, cereals, some pine and some citrus. Taste is clearly bitter but nor overly so, medium body and a long rewading finish. Lovely palette of tastes, fruit, citrus, resin and some honey.

I’ve heard a lot of opinions about this beer. Some people just LOVE it and some don’t so I was excited to give it a try!

It’s a amber colored beer (a little hazy) with a one finger high head that dissapears fast down to a <1 mm thin head. A lot of lacing stays on the glass.

Nose: Oups! This is a huge nose of orange marmelade, caramel malt, biscuit, fudge, butter, candy and whipped cream.
Taste: It’s big but not as the nose promise... Orange, citrus, marmelade, bread, pine, resin and honey.
Body: Solid medium to full body. A sweet, creamy, taste. Not all that texture that I want from a DIPA. Dry. A medium bitterness.
ABV: 9.4% - Hard to say because of the sweetness. Great but not overwhelming.

Well... My verdict is: Great Imperial IPA but a little average...

@ Stordirren 15-8-19: mycket maltig och kraftig doft. Ganska potent smak. Het med mycket malt. Inte så mycket frukt men mera toner av torkat frukt och russin.
