COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To be immodest has to lack humility and decency. With out ’Immodest’ Imperial IPA, we achieved just that! Obscene use of Citra & Simcoe hops will atack your senses with bright citrus fruit, balanced with earthy pine notes. The indecency doesn’t stop there, as it packs a wallop at 9.5% but you won’t notice because it drinks so remarkably smooth. Don’t worry, your modesty isn’t needed here.

Tasting at Matt’s, can; 9% ABV
Cloudy light amber color, small head. Nice hoppy aroma, fruity and citrusy, tropical fruits. The body is lean, the malt profile is quite good, but the hopping is weird, with too much vegetables, irn.
Seems unfresh.

A hazed golden DIPA with a thin off white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with catnip hops, resinous and smooth. In mouth, a nice citrusy catty hops with resinous character, alcohol warmth, doughy character, mentol, very nice.

Pale orange pour with a thick tight white head. The nose is awesome. Juicy citrus and lemon/grapefruit. A bright fruit citrus. Assertive hoppiness and a touch of pepper. Clean malt base with a load of expressive juicy citrusy hops. Delicious.

500mL can, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a cloudy opaque dark orange with a small beige head. Aroma is very earthy and dirty, with fungal notes and earthy hops. Flavour brings out earthy and resinous hops upfront, with a touch of fungal notes. Big dry malt backbone. Not terribly complex or drinkable, but pretty solid. Good, but overrated in my opinion.

[5341-20130505] Tap. Sweaty pine tree sap aroma. Murky, orange brown body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Bitter evergreen resin hops flavour has a long bitter finish. Medium-full body. Lovely bitter brew, very well-balanced. (8/4/8/4/16) 4.0

Radek Kliber (6600) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 8, 2013
Tap at Volo
Aroma citric, herbal with nettle. Malty backing. Late note of lime and alcohol.
Appearance medium white top with gold hazed base. Touch of amber.
Flavor and Palate : vegetal onion like front. Musky with hop backing. Beyond strange onion notes you will be greeted with heat of alcohol and citric hops. Could my sample be off?

Draught at Volo. Pours a deep orange-amber with a small long-lasting frothy white head. Aroma is quite fruity, with lots of fruity hops, along with malt in the back and some alcohol. Flavour is also fruity and hoppy, a bit perfumy, and with some grain and alcohol. Moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good.
