This Imperial IPA is excellent. Excellent citrus aroma. Dry finish and and incredible drinkability. In my first time, I drank This Beer at Russian River Brew Pub and it was a unique e experience. Fresh hops and a perfect blend.

Draft in Philly at Monk's Cafe. Yellow gold. Big bitter Grapefruit and pine note up front with just a slight malt character to balance the hops. The overall taste is that of a hoppy big dipa but, the standout factor is the dry finish and incredible drinkability. Super smooth for this style. This is a perfect dipa all around!

Just perfect.... not in your face flavor like must triple ipa nor lack in taste like a single ipa, but just right... Simply well balance. It has the perfect punch of bitterness, sweetness, hoppiness, and citrus. Great piny hint also...just refreshing...

Light orangish almost strong tea like color. Hops smell is strong. I ventured to San Francisco to get this on tap to do it right. Tastes extremely hoppy but finishes smooth. I believe this is where the magic is with a hyper hopped but balanced beer.

Super hoppy and intense herbal notes on the nose. So smooth and velvety, light caramel, juicy and spicy. Fresh herbal flavors, grassy, fresh and delicious, juicy. Gawd!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aromas of citrusy, tropical, and piney hops, some honey. Clear golden orange with a fully lasting white head. Dry, bitter, hop-forward, but with a great nutty, honeyed malt backbone. Light-medium bodied.

Bottle courtesy of Willy J, thanks for the coast to coast same day transport. First, off... not the first to the (pun)chline here Iím sure, but itís more like "Piney the Elder" if you ask me. Pours super clear gold, small white head. Aroma is major pine, hop resin, grapefruit rind, sweet malt, caramel. Taste is a very sweet and delicious hop bomb. Super smooth, med body... Really beautifully executed / amazing balance.

Bottle kindly brought to the UK. Beautiful golden with a bit of a head. Incredible citrus aroma. Thankfully not sweet, instead a crisp dryness that sets it well apart from a lot of American IPAs. An ode to hops, and a beautiful one at that.

Iím not sure it gets much better than This for an IPA. It just smells wonderful, I literally smelled this like 10 times before sipping. When I did sip, I was blow away. The hop characteristics are at an elite level, and the way it balances at the end with a malty sweetness is unparalleled. The reputation of this is warranted.
