A really nicely done DIPA. In my opinion, this is the best beer Piece has made to date. Foamy & orange in the glass. Slight lacing in the glass. Sweet and fruity smell. Hammering of hops at the end, but it is all citrus, not pine. My only beef is the high alcohol content makes a slight burn in the mouth.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2011
POursdeep golden with big notes of citrus fruit. Think grapefruit and the tropics. These characteristics show deeper with a bigger rounding of sweet malts that drive to a long finish.

msante79 (2212) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2011
On tap at Piece. Pours hazy light orange with off-white head. Aromas of grapefruit, bright hops, and caramel malts. Flavors of grapefruit, orange, mango, bit of caramel malts, and bitter hops. Finishes with nice balance between malts and hops. Mouthfeel was a tad watery, but other than that it was pretty much spot on.

jrallen34 (3485) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2011
It pours a dark orange with a white head, but it doesn’t last long or have very good lacing. The aroma is strong lots of citrust and hops, with a touch of spice. The taste is great but very strong throughout. Notes of orange and lots of hops from start to finish. The beer sticks to your mouth and its very drinkable.

On tap at the brewpub. Great fruity hops aroma and taste. Very, very nice, kind of between an IPA and DIPA. Wish I could get it somewhere other than just the brewpub - very congested part of town.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy deep orange with a small creamy white head. Aroma is nicely citric fruity hops, plenty of fresh mango and grapefruit with some sweet caramel. Flavor starts with a nice bouquet of sweet fruity hops and a soft doughy note that comes into play. Finishes with a moderately bitter but not overly aggressive finish. Medium to medium full body and a soft carbonation. Pretty good stuff

troyc (2776) - Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2010
[Tap] Pours a clear gold/amber color with a foamy white cap. Fragrant aroma of citrusy hops. A hoppy bitterness dominates this beer, with any other flavor notes taking a back seat. Astringent and sharply bitter finish. Noticeable alcohol in the finish accentuates the one dimensional hoppiness here. I appreciate what they were trying to do here, but I really wasn’t crazy about it.

rubbishystuff (1909) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2015 A good beer but not a super outstanding version of the Imperial IPA. Hoppy but not overly. Serving: Tap

SrSilliGose (3277) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 23, 2010
Big juicy, fruity, citrusy hop aroma. Flavor has too much booze and grain alcohol. A bit solventy. Nice hop character, but too boozy.
