Can in Georgia. Pour is clear copper with a medium white head. Aroma is loaded with sticky resinous hops, light bright citrus notes, and faint caramel malt. Flavor is quite nice. Very smooth and cohesive combination of caramel malt and resinous hops with a hint of citrus. Very creamy and smooth. Rather than the hops being highlighted by a malty background or the malt being thrust forward with some balancing hops, this beer is a really nice balance of both at the forefront. Neither dominates and they do not compete. Just very well balanced.

16 ounce can purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Canned on 07/03/2012, so this is exactly one month old. Herbal, citrus, grapefruity aroma with hints of pine. Seem to be a lot of PNW C-Hops in this. Pretty piney, though. Light sweet, caramel malts are also present in the nose. This smells a bit like Pliny...must be the Columbus hops. Transparent dark orange body with a large, strong, frothy off-yellow rocky head. Gorgeous. The start on this is really oily and slicky with piney hop resins and grapefruit character. The middle is a little more chewy and sticky with sweet, sugary caramel character. Finishes with some tannins and a little resinous, before more piney bitter hops come through in the end. Good flavor, good aroma, beautiful beer, but just cloying as hell.

Draught at Macgregor’s Penfield. Amber-copper color with a fine head. Fruity, juicy nose of grape and citrus. Nice grainy malt flavor, citrus and other fruits, a very little bit of caramel, and earthy hop character. Interesting and nice. Should be classified as a DIPA in my opinion.

Sampled on 8/2/2012. IPA Day! This Imperial IPA pours an orange gold color from a 16oz can. Medium to large sized white foamy head, with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity and sweet, citrusy and piney hops. A touch of grapefruit as well. A medium bodied Imperial IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and piney. Decent carbonation. Lots of hop flavors with a nice malt backbone. Some lingering reisny bitterness. A nice solid Imperial IPA. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Poured from a pint sized can. Huge aroma of citrus, slight pine and floral. The flavor is dominated by the hops, lots of citrus and resin. The malts are subtle but they are there. A great IPA.

Happy IPA day! Poured from a tallboy dated 5-15-12 so it's about a month and a half old..... a little past prime for an IPA. Pours a thick golden with thick white head and plenty o lacing. Powerful hop aroma of skunk, mango, pineapple and stank. Mouthfeel is heavy and malty. This is really a double IPA. Taste is a good balance of hops and malt. Tropical hops predominate with some alcohol warmth. Yeast is also definitely there. Overall, this is just an amped up version of Dales Pale ale, which is really an IPA, which makes this an IIPA. If you like Dales, or Gubna you'll like this. I really didn't. Something about OB yeast just doesn't do it for me. Oh well.
