brenn79 (1583) - Idaho, USA - MAR 14, 2011
22 oz. bottle- Pours dark orange to almost red with a 1 finger head, lacework is good. Aroma starts pine then switches to more grapefruit citrus, fantastic aroma. The flavor starts sweet, melon and grapefruit, then the bitterness dominates through to the finish. Body is medium, carbonation is medium, finish is long and bitter. I needed a good beer after the shit I have been drinking all night, and this definitely did the trick.

22oz Bottle – Gravity Beer Market – Olympia, WA
Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice hops aroma floral with a slight spice. Floral and fruity flavors mixed well with the malt build. I was impressed wit this Impy IPA. For a newer brewer at this time they did a good job.

Dorwart (2394) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Pretty sloppy head which does not have much form or substance. Reduces to a muddled mess of rather large bubbles. Excellent aroma though. Lots of succulent hops, pineapple and peaches, a bit of caramel sweetness and some roasted grains. Color is a nice dark brownish orange. Wow, very refreshing for a pretty hopped up and potent brew. Lots more mellow hops that put forth a decent bitterness. Some tea leaves and herbal flavors kind of give a dry pasty mouthfeel. Some fruit and a good amount of roasted grains again. Pretty up front alcohol punch with a bit of lingering burn. Finishes dry and bitter. A pretty darn good IIPA. Very roasty and hoppy!

Poured amber/orange in color with a small, tan head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer and around the edges. Hazy. Very slightly sparkling.

Lightly oily, then lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Medium sweet, medium bitter, hop, pine, resin, crystal malt, slight wood, and caramel finish is slightly dry. 9%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

Pours a lightly hazy orange with a bubbly/creamy off white head. Aroma of pine, American hops, light alcohol, herbal, orange and caramel. Flavor of a load of American hops, caramel, pine, toffee, orange and a lot of hop bitterness. Very solid IIPA. Kinda reminds me of fresh Dreadnaught.
