COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lacking nothing, at ten percent alcohol by volume and 95 International Bitterness Units, the Decadent truly represents all that is self indulgent when it comes to drinking beer.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2007
22oz - Aroma of astringent hops, cardboard and sweet caramel. Something there that just isnít sitting right with my nose, maybe rotten grapefruit. Pours transparent brown with a medium head and good lacing. Flavor matches aroma at first but as it warms, the astringency of the hops mellows out to be more non-rotten citrus hops. Palate is bitter and sticky. Not a drain pour, but nothing I would drink again.

AOF (306) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Burnt orange color with almost no head. Deep citrusy hops in the nose. Hints of toasted caramel, pineapple, lemongrass, and pine. Medium to light in body, somewhat thin in the mouth. Finishes somewhat sweet and sour. At times you taste the bitterness, at times you taste the sweetness. A pretty good DIPA.

Bitter hop finish with plenty of orange and grapefurit hoppy character. Nice citrus hop nose. Thanks to Skyview for sharing.

Lubiere (12678) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2007
A hazy amber ale with a very thin white head. A pleasant mineral floral hops a roma with light biscuitty malts. In mouth, a good malt base with resinous hops, light vanilla points, grapefruit and light alcohol in final. A good IPA but rather thin for a I2PA. Bottle bought at Bevmo, Sacramento, August 2005.

Skyview (5477) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Picked up single 22-oz bomber from Johnís Market Place in Portland, Oregon. Pours a semi-cloudy golden pale brew with a decent off-white head that has some good lacing and retention. Aroma of sweet citrus, some light caramel roasted malt, grapefruit and a touch of pine. Taste is sweetened mildly bitter, morevsweet piney hop flavor than malt. Finish has a lingering mild bitter aftertaste along with a warm alcohol presence.

KieferUGA (461) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2007
22 oz. bottle. Pours a murky, deep gold color. Medium sized, off-white head with a decent amount of lacing. Faint aroma of citrus hops with some caramel. Body is mainly sweet malts with minimal hop bitterness. This beer confuses me. For a IIPA, it is so very thin.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 5, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2011 Hmmm, Iím not buying it. This is definitely one of the blandest DIPAs Iíve had. Decent looking (albeit with faint head and carbonation), thereís little aroma and very little distinction in the flavor. Where are the hops? Whereís the big body we expect from the style? Label and red wax are cool but this is not so good.

JK (5631) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2007
This is rated a little lower than I expected. I enjoyed the intense flavors. Bitter and full flavored hops. Gold color, and the bitter hops are balanced by sweet malt.

RSRIZZO (1940) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Had this beer on 5/5/2005. Aroma is a fresh hoppy citrus scent with tone of sweet malt. Color is bright gold with very low carbonation and thin head. Taste rich, smooth and hoppy. Starting with a medium body that goes down with a nice smooth feel and a maltiness coming on. Finish comes on with the malt flavor building to a rich feel and then a hoppy flavor coming in that has a bit of citrus to it. On the end is a nice mild bitterness and a feel of high alcohol. This strong alcohol taste on the end is the only down fall otherwise it is one of the best I.P.A.ís I have ever had.

Bold hoppy aroma and flavor to match. A very good IPA but Imperial? I donít think so, needs more hops and body.
