COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pours a sublime light amber color with a light tan head of fine foam. Immediate aromas of citrus and passion fruit permeate the nose of this Imperial IPA. The malt profile is balanced and matches the hop character well. Nicely bitter and not too sweet.

ajnepple (2540) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2013
Draft at Tap n Handle. Light reddish brown and cloudy with an off-white head and lacing. Citrus fruity floral hop aroma with a light body and thin soft feel. Toasted malty flavor balances the hops, bittersweet finish.

adnielsen (9464) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2013
Tap @ Tap and Handle Fort Collins. Pours a dark reddish orange appearance with a light brown head. Spicy, big piney, grapefruity, a bit dank aroma. Somewhat goopy, caramel malty, piney, slightly bitter, orange citrusy flavor. Not as good as many of their IPA offerings.

Westmeister (1830) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Draft at the Fred back in January- Pours a dark orange.amber with nice off white head and good lacing throughout. Aroma was quite fruity, some citrus and a bit of earthiness. The flavor did not come off as stong fruity as the nose suggested, but there was some spicy hops and earthy/piney hops with a sweet malt backing. Not bad, but I would like to see this experimental hop in another capacity.

joeneugs (3483) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 29, 2012
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a dark amber color. Very dark for the style. The aroma is sweet hoppy with caramel and... cocoa? Can’t be, but I can’t help but sense it a little. Also a little pine and sweet fruit. The flavor is light bodied and frankly, a bit weak. Piney, spicy and caramel. Lackluster finish. Very clean and well brewed, but seriously lacking in oomph.
