jazz88 (2564) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Tap @ The Bistro’s 2010 10th Annual Double IPA Festival. A reddish amber color with a cherry fruit aroma, slightly sour, and somewhat harsh flavors.

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 17, 2011
A: The pour is a dark amber color with a minimal head forming that is khaki in color. S: Some floral hops to start along with a definite earthiness. There is some toffee and caramel in terms of the malt character along with a bit of a chalkiness. To be honest, for a big beer like this, the nose is pretty mellow. T: There’s a decent bitterness on the palate along with some citrus hop flavor. Fairly decent malt character such as toffee, caramel, toast, and roast. There’s an unfortunate cough syrup flavor in there too, though. M: The body is medium and the carbonation is low to medium. D: My first "Imperial Blue" Ale! But seriously...this wasn’t all that great. Sadly, it was one of their better beers.

marcus (6781) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 14, 2010
On tap at Pacific Coast Brewing. Pours reddish brown with a thin tan head and an oaky aroma. There is a hearty roasted malt flavor with some pine and a bitter oak finish.

bhensonb (11528) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Tap at the brewpub. Aromas of hop and xmas spice. Med body. Lots of hop, some vanilla, some spice, and perhaps juniper. Nice seasonal.
