Dark orange color with little head and carbonation. Very strong caramel flavor that overwhelms the hop character in my opinion.

This was a grape bomb while still holding on to the taste profile of an Imperial IPA. There is a lovely viscosity to this beer as well. The website claims citrus notes that I do not get at all but the caramel malt is surely there. It tastes the full 10% of alcohol and it has the bitter punch to it but there is a serious amount of concord grape sweetness here that really adds an unusual layer to a beer style that can sometimes (let’s face it) get a little boring.

From bottle. Pours clear orange yellow with a white head. Aroma of caramel and citrus. Taste is sweet, lots of caramel, lots of citrus.

Pour from bottle in Killeen Texas. Deep golden pour with weak head. Pretty good flavor with some sweetness. Don't really taste the 10%, I like it overall. Not fantastic, but very good.

Interesting honey sweetness mixed with grapefruit flavors. Booziness is masked and not very evident based on the high ABV%. Enjoyable and possibly repeatable.

22 oz bottle from Total Wine in Tucson, served in a stem glass. Pours clear golden-amber with a medium beige head that fades to a thin cover and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has big fruity notes, along with honey and bready malts. The flavour is intense, balanced between a moderate honey-fruity sweetness and a citric-piney bitterness. Notes of candy, malts and citrus peel also come through. It closes out with a long, peppery-spicy bitterness with a moderate sweetness. On the palate it is medium-full in body with a smooth, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a nice imperial IPA with a fairly fruity character. I wonder if the nose has gone down with aging. It would be interesting to try a fresher bottle. 2014-07-19

Lots of hops flavor and very citrusy. Highly carbonated and a sticky mouth feel. Very refreshing double IPA.

Pours a dark golden color almost orange with white head. Pine, citrus, and some grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes very bitter and with a bite.
