A clear ruby body with minimal head. This is a sweet caramel double ipa with a dry grassy and piney hop note. Medium bodied with a slight soap aftertaste. Remnants of the high abv well after the sip. Good but unspectacular.

I typically complain about IPA, but an Imperial IPA is a bit of an exception. This one packs a punch. Like John Cougar said, "It hurts so good".

Pours a dark orangish amber..Piney and grapefruit with a little sweetness in aroma. The flavor is caramel malts, citrus, tartness, and a little bitterness in the finish. Overall, a decent imperial IPA.

12 oz bottle thanks to Jimmy. Pours dark amber with a small white head. Nice citrus nose but a bit mild. Flavors of citrus and bitter hops. Some decent malt profile for balance. Bitterness on the end. Alcohol is present but not over the top. Decent IIPA.

Great typical NW citrus bomb. Nice malt background. I do like my double ipa’s to be super bitter, which this is lacking. However, the dry hop gives it a nice aroma. Good ipa (not iipa).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Orange amber with a small white head. Nose is floral and resinous, citrus. Not bursting with complexity, but simple, fresh, and relatively (and surprisingly clean). Flavor is more grapefruit, a bit hefty and flabby, sharp bitterness. A step in the right direction for Pyramid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark red slightly hazy with thin white head, aroma brought big chewy Simcoe, some pine, grapefruit and sweet orange notes, touch of slight caramel and some hints of an earthy spice as well. Taste is sweet and slightly chewy, some big citrus up front with orange and grapefruit, going into biscuit, caramel, some toasted bread and hints of earth, finishing fairly bitter. Pretty decent.
