22 oz bottle. Tasted on 4/16/15. Bottle courtesy of Espo. The aroma & taste were both ok but not overly flavorful or special... Wasn't a huge fan of this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bit of choc and grain come from this clear deep red/brown brew with a light creamy colored brown head. A earthy nutty roasted light choc flavor in this medium bodied brew. A very decent brown.

Bottle. Clear amber with great lacing. Huge citrus hop aroma with solid maltiness. Crazy bitter from start to finish, though somehow doesnít feel like 8%

beer-yum (1186) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 9, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2015 Restrained aroma in an amber pour. Taste is hop forward to start but quickly becomes sweet with a mild balanced finish. A good beer - but not as good as the local íPanhead Vandalí I enjoyed before it to be honest.

Itís been a long time coming for me and this Imperial India Pale Ale from the Oregon coast. I found a big bottle for a decent price today, and so history will be made tonight. It has a typical IPA aroma, nothing suggestive of a whopping 8% alcohol. The taste itself is rather subtle as well, at first, but then the strength comes through. Overall a good beer, not extraordinary, and nothing to make me ashamed of putting it off for so long.

Bottle from Rothís. Medium amber in color. Nose is heavy on citrus and hoppiness. A little sweetness is noticeable as well. Full mouthfeel. Good malt balance as well.

Bottle on 08.27.14. Poured from a bomber into a mason jar style glass on 10.08.14. A: Caramel, light citrus, and brown sugar. Itís very subtle. A: 2 finger head. See through copper body. T: Caramel, pine, and hop resin dominate. Brown sugar and flower are subtle. P: Crisp. O: This is a malt dominant IPA. The bitterness is acidic and lingers annoyingly. Itís not undrinkable, but not enjoyable. The flower sweetness is nice, but this is not in the West Coast style. Unfortunately, the sink drank it.

stevoj (3531) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Nice DIPA. Deep copper color with small silky head, robust hop aroma, some citrus. Taste adds more resinous hops and a little alcohol warmth. Medium wright, slightly chewy, and slippery.

Poured from a 22. Looks like a standard IPA offering. Aroma is a bit dank and grassy. Flavor is citrusy, grapefruit and sweet. The aftertaste is astringent and the finish is long and bitter. Masks the alcohol fairly well.
