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 (2422) - 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.

A good beer but not a super outstanding version of the Imperial IPA. Hoppy but not overly. Serving: Tap

SrSilligoose (3217) - 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.

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Glass at Piece. Opaque orange color with a thin white head. Nose is citrusy and piney hops with a sprinkle of tropical fruit. Flavor is piney and grassy hop with a bit if grapefruit. Clean finish.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy, golden-orange colored body with a thin, creamy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is pretty nice. Lots of fresh, citrusy pines with plenty of juicy pineapples and grapefruits. Solid caramel balance that allows the hops to clearly shine. Flavor is similar, but seems to lack a significant malt backing. Lots of fresh hops and plenty of juicy citrus pineapple, oranges, and grapefruits. Lightly sweetened pale malts with a touch of caramel and grain. Finishes moderately bitter and resiny with some pines and sweeter florals that leave a lengthy aftertaste following a light-medium, creamy body and moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid DIPA. Lots of fresh, bright hops and easy drinking. Not bad.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy gold with a white head. Lots of green hops and orange zest in the aroma. Hoppy and bright flavor with lots of citrus. Light pale malt to balanbce and just a touch of butterscotch. Medium bodied. Again, as with the pale ale, the light diacetyl that their ale yeast leaves in the beer is not what I would prefer, though I can see how others might not be bothered by it. I think I would like this a lot with a cleaner yeast though.

marcus (6303) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 31, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours cloudy golden with a modest white head and a strong floral pine aroma. There is a substantial caramel malt base with a refeshing hop bite at the finish. A very good brew.

Great Beer! Not sure if the designation as an "egyptian" pale ale is tongue-in-cheek - I’ve lived in the Middle East and am fairly certain they do not brew beer like this there. Anyways, I digress - I great dark amber pour with a foamy off-white head that leaves decent lacing on the glass. A bit of citrus in the nose. On the tongue there are notes of citrus, plums, a hint of alcohol, a little malt, and a nice pine finish. Solid mouthfeel. Great IIPA

Draft @ the brew pub. Pours a pale amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty hoppy grapefruit aroma. Hoppy bitter grapefruit flavor. Has a very hoppy bitter graoefruit finish.
