fiulijn (18056) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle from The Beer Junction
Hazy amber color with medium sized head. The hops are sweaty and musky, a bit fruity too. Strong body; caramel and malt flavor, moderately sweet but not syrupy; the hops are mainly resiny, also earthy and a bit citrusy. Abrasive ending resins.
Very nice. Rustic.

mcberko (12383) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy orange amber with a small white head. Aroma of herbal hops, some feint cosmetic, paint thinner notes, and floral notes. Flavour brings out very bitter floral hops, some cosmetic notes, and vegetal notes. Too harsh and too many off-flavours. This needs some serious refinement.

Draft at the alehouse. Pours a clear burnished medium bronze with a loose white head. Bright grapefruit nose, good dimension and presence to the aromatics. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty light caramel and plenty of sweet tropical fruity notes on the mid palate. Crisp finish.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice hops aroma and flavor. This was a super Impy IPA. - Great Job Eric

Big crystal malt profile caramel toast iced tea. Some grapefruit and peppery hop notes. Pours amber great creamt head nive lace. Flavors of caramel toast iced tea ligjt citrus pepper and bittering hops. Creamy texture. Almost might be a touch of butter in there. Too much crystal malt profile for my liking. "Meh" (Jon, 2009).

BARLEYWINEO (106) - Tacoma, USA - APR 28, 2012
A: Poured a nice glowing orange with a nice white cap, not much lacing going on S: Honey, nuts, tropical fruit and orange peel T: Crystal and Vienna malts immediately and very apparent. There is an immediate orange peel note with nuts, honey and a dash of tropical fruit. The booze is well masked and there is a bitter finish M: Medium body, taste fades, body becomes a bit thin and the Crystal malt become obnoxious. This is somewhat the same trait I find in Deschutes beers since a big base malt is Crystal and Pale malt in their Pale’s and IPA’s. O: Not bad but considering the sheer amount of high quality IIPA’s flooding the market I have to say it would be hard to come back to this one

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2012
Bottle. Appearance: Pours a dark golden honey color with a nice white head. Aroma: Grassy hops upfront with a slight citrusy aroma coming through. Taste: Fruity hops coming to the tongue first, the label says pear and I agree. Finishing with caramel malt. Palate: Dry with no hints of the 9% alcohol, slightly metallic on the edges of the tongue at the end.
