dirty cloudy appearance, wonderfully piney nose. huge hops with a background of fruits which are apparent enough to push this into the territory of IIPAs which truly excel.

DSG (5731) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 27, 2008
(10/13/08) Draught at the brewpub in Chicago. Hazy amber a rather stable off-white head. Aroma has a bit of caramel, light nutty notes, quite a bit of floral hops and a bit of fruitiness. Bitter hoppy flavor with some citrus, some pine, some fruits and weak malty sweetish tones. Alcohol is well-hidden even if slightly apparent on the palate. Medium to full-bodied. A good, highly-drinkable, hop bomb.

gtmw 08....3 pretty decent ipas/dipas right in a row and this one held up just fine against the previous 2.... pours hazy orange with a thin soapy white head.... assertive tropical floral hops in the nose..... flavors continued with the sweet tropical fruits. extremely drinkable even at 9.5%...can’t wait to have this again in chicago.

GTMW 2008. I’ve been wanting to try this beer for quite some time now. The beer pours to a murky straw colored body with a dense white head. The beer was like a hoppy hefeweizen. Sweet and rich. Seemed wheaty. Really nice!

Brigadier (2930) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Great Taste of the Midwest 2008

Hoppy and aggressive this was amazingly my first hop bomb of the afternoon. That made it the perfect shock to the system after porters, stouts and heavy fruit beers. It is not the strongest imperial IPA but at the same time everything you could ask for is present.

Aroma / Appearance - The cloudy golden body left a nice layer of residue along the side of the glass. The hops took the form of a bright fruity and caramel blend.

Flavor / Palate - Hoppy banana bread washed across the senses before a dry bitter finish. There is no mistaking this for anything other than an imperial IPA at this point. Aggressive but balanced it highlights the skill of the brewers at Piece. I can’t wait to get back there and see what they have brewing in the future.

Cloudy dk straw pour thick white head, good lacing. Well coated pal. Flavor is full of tropical fruit, hops, I’d guess simcoe, heavy so sweet hop flower.. delicious APA. Light breads come later. Aroma is mostly floral definatelly big sweet tropical fruits... some cereal.. GREAT.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2008
GABF 2007. A hazy golden beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with notes of grass. The flavor is sweet with ntoes of grass, malt, and grapefruits. OK, but nothing special.

rederic (2911) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2008
Cloudy amber-orange hue, with a floral hop pineyness nose with some cedary, resinous notes, with a good toasted , carmel malt accent, with a leafy citrusy fruity aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet toasted malt and a juicy leafy, flowery hop character, with a coniferous, cedary accent, some grapefruit, lemon hoppiness, leading towards a warming intense hop leafy bitterness finish.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Cask conditioned as guest firkin at Dark Lord Days ’08. Pours a clear light copper amber brew with a thin and creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates, even for a cask drawn beer. Aroma of multi citrus zest, some crystal and amber malts, grapefruit with some toffee and pine. Quite complex for a lighter color beer. Taste is medium bodied, no carbonation with flavors of light caramel malt, plenty of citrus and grapefruit flavors and some nice sweet bitterness for a double IPA. Finish has a lingering sweet bitterness or orange zest that sticks around after the finish.

Glouglouburp (6001) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2008
In short: A heavy well malted IIPA with a ton of resinous bitter hops. Excellent
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear dark-golden body with a medium off-white head
In long: Heavy caramel malt profile. Intense resinous citrusy hops. Intense bitterness. Like some kind of Corne Du Diable on steroids crossed with a Bell’s Hopslam. This is a sipper. More a sipper than a highly drinkable IIPA but this is nonetheless a very superior IIPA. Described on the menu as “A classic Egyptian style Pale Ale”?!?!? No kidding. Sure, whatever, probably very good to accompany traditional Pakistani style pork chops.
