Pours ugly orange brown, very cloudy. Aroma hoppy but not very pungent. Flavor is like hops, grass, and gasoline, not great.

tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Pretty good Double IPA. Great Aroma. Nice color and lacing. The hop taste is somewhat balanced by the high ABV. A little sticky feeling. The bitter is not harsh and not overly hoppy.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Copper red pour, small white head. Aroma is citrus, pine and malty. Flavor is resiny, citrusy, piney even floral basically the 4 food groups of hops. Caramel lies in the background giving a hint of sweetness. Big on the resin this has a good amount of bitterness that really lingers killing the other flavors. Very dry also which is making the harshness come out more. Not bad but the bitterness becomes too much.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2008
22oz. Bottle: Hoppy aroma. Smells of hops, pine, citrus, pineapple, and a little resin. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, rocky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Excellent lacing. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of small floating particles. Medium bitter flavor. Tastes of hops, grapefruit, tropical fruit, citrus, and butter. Medium body. Dryish texture. Soft to average carbonation. Bitter, lightly dry finish.

Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Bottle. Poured a cloudy orange color with a thick white head. Nice lacing. Decent aroma, although not as pungent as I would have expected. Mouthfeel is nice. Flavor is a nice bitter hoppiness with some citrus and pine to it. Hoppy finish. A pretty good Impy IPA.

Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Bottle. Hazy thick orange color with medium sized head. Aroma is citrus hops with some weed and tea notes. It really smells good but the flavor did not stand up and represent. Bitter hoppy flavors bominate this beer. Some sweetness and little caramel notes can also be detected. This could be better with a little tweeking.

1FastSTi (3334) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Pours to a hazy shiny straw colored body with a creamy white head. The aroma is grassy weedy hops with a nice simple pale malt. The flavor is bitter hops with lots of weedy grassy hops. The palate is bitter. Overly bitter.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Sampled via 22-oz bomber during Cheesehead YeHA in Brookfield, Wisconsin and shared by 1FastSTi. Pours a hazy caramel amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a thin head and white ring. Aroma of distinct grapefruit and apple zest/skin, dark biscuit dough, piney/citrus hops and a touch of caramel. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of sweet grapefruit, citrus zest and a touch of caramel malt. Finish is semi-sweet, bitter with an iced tea character aftertaste. Good alcohol balance in the finish.

BBB63 (5964) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Cheesehead YeHA (who brought this?): Coppery hue with a small frothy head and some lace. The aroma has notes of caramel and biscuity malt, herbal and piney hops, hint of grapefruit and apple, and some fusel alcohol vapours. The taste is sweeter than expected but there is hop bitterness and acidic fruit twang to counter-balance the flavor profile. The finish is mildly spicy and alcoholic. The mouth feel is aggressive and sharp with a chalky finish. Okay but under attenuated.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Thanks to whoever brought this! Poured medium caramel with a short cap of beige head.. settled down to a thin layer after a couple minutes. The aroma picked up lots of bright caramel and lighter fruitage with lots of alcohol amplification.. dry and seemingly weak in the hop department. The flavor was sweet, and certainly booze-driven with caramel as the major player.. lots of raw booziness and not very complex. Medium-to-heavier bodied and sharp with boozy caramel and fruits on the hot finish.
