COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this one because we just can’t get enough of those hops. IPA’s seem to be a great choice any time of the year. They have a great malt flavor and hop profile, just what a beer connoisseur is looking for. We decided to give this one a bit more hops. Try this with a strong cheese like a very sharp cheddar, cloth bound, aged if you can find one.

Foaming bottle. Dark amber. Small head for a foaming beer. Stong woody hop nose. Woody hop flavour. Lots of caramel malt. Hint of soap. A lot of body and malt. Sugary caramel a little strong for hops. Noticeable alcohol stands on the sidelines.

The aroma is pine oil hop with a touch of pungent citrus: grapefruit/tangerine. An earthy, musty malt base. Appears beautifully cloudy amber orange. Decent head with beautiful lace. Nice carbonation. Textbook. Typical Imperial IPA flavors: roasted malt, a woody hop with bitter citrus at the end. Very mild, but with a bitter finish of wood chips and mild oak. Feels fizzy in a milky coating. Mostly smooth with a dry, ashy finish. Overall, a pretty mild Imperial IPA. Very drinkable, and a surprising 8%. Decent, underwhelming.

Ratman197 (9448) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Bomber courtesy of Doodler poured a hazy orange amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of biscuit, lemon, orange zest and light grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, orange zest, lemon, earthiness and pie with a smooth dry lingering bitter earthy finish.

Cloudy copper pour, small white head. Aroma of orange zest, grapefruit, earth, caramel malt, and a touch of evergreen. Flavor isn’t fantastic- pretty well balanced with pine and caramel, but not complex. Palate is a bit thin, and could use a bit more carbonation. Decent brew.

Padron4KM (531) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 12, 2010
22 oz bottle.
Hazy burn orange, with a rocky tan head.
Aroma is a big dose of caramel followed by subtle hints of grapefruit and pine.
Flavor is very similar to aroma. Caramel is big and sweet up front, but the hops are not far behind. Grapefruit, pine, resin, with a little toast underneath it all.
Finish is long with a nice play between pine and citrus.
Not overly complex, but well balanced, and one I will have again.

Arayaga2 (1769) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 17, 2010
Hazy orange brown with an inch of off-white head. Aroma is super sweet and orangey (like orange soda). Taste is very malty and pithily bitter with fruity English yeast character, and metallic English hop bitterness into the finish. $4.15/22oz

Amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, floral hops, citrus fruits caramel malts, and toasted dough. Taste of pine, grapefruit, citrus fruits, resin, and a bitter hop finish with some alcohol as well.

Dorwart (2356) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Decent head from a somewhat mild pour. Light carbonation. Lots of hoppy goodness in the aroma with some pine, roasted grains and caramel malts. A hint of grapefruit in there also. Color is a cloudy copper orange. Moderate bitterness in the flavor with some more caramel malts, grapefruit pith, grainy notes and some herbal notes. Kind of dry and pasty. Finishes dry and hoppy with a lingering citrusy bitterness. A decent IIPA.
