Like this one. Citrus aroma and the hops stood out to give this one some alcohol kick. Had this one while watching the NCAA Tourament. Dark golden color. Good beer to kick back and watch a game with.

I much prefer this style to the dreadnaught. Great big hop monster that could pucker up the face of the most serious hop heads around. Nice light toasted malt finish with some sweetness and that huge hop bite. leave the malt out, then its just another barleywine.

Good lemonade hopped up nose. Reminded me a lot of like a lemonade but more bitter and less commercial. Nice finish.

This is an Imperial IPA. Let's just concede and make it an official style already. Huge mega-hops, 100 IBUs, 8.4% this cask. Dark dirty brass color, bitter to no end. This was just missing a bit more malt balance (if even possible in a monster such as this) to join the ranks of Dreadnaught at the top!!!

jazz88 (2556) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 18, 2003
Tap @ the Bistro's Double IPA Festival. Hazy dark golden color. A big fresh sweet hop bite rolling in beauty.

mwsf (360) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 9, 2003
Straw color. Malty aroma. Firm bitterness. Earthy. Medium body. Nice.

joet (2177) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - DEC 9, 2002
Pine, dog, gunpowder, very earthy and disturbing. This is more than a big guy, itís a monster.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - DEC 8, 2002
No head, Dog rolled around in tangeriens and sap. Lots of oversteeped tea, tangerien peel, gritty resinous pond water, creepy crawly mouthfeel like its alive and squirming. A very strange brew.
