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.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - DEC 30, 2006
22 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquor - Pours a clear amber color with a one and a half finger thick off white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus, light floral, and resin. Has a sweet malt and light citrus hop flavor. Not as bitter as I expected. Maybe this bottle had a little age on it. No unpleasant aftertaste that usually follows some 2IPAís. Medium body. This beer is not as big or strong as most 2IPAís Iíve tried, but still, itís very good.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2006
Bottle. Amber clear colour with a nice head. Lovely aroma of hoppieness, and notes of citrus and grapefruit and caramel. Also hoppy flacour of citrus, careml and a warm feeling from the alcohol. Very hoppy and nice.

KAME (160) - California, USA - DEC 16, 2006
Hmmm, I surprised the ratings are so low for this. Very cool bottle shared by a friend. Aroma is piney and not overly citrusy; quite balanced and reminds me of Stone 10th Anniv. Flavor is very nice and does an amazing job of hiding the 10% alcohol. Hops are very manageable and no harsh bitterness is present. Mouthfeel is quite creamy but the carbonation was a little low. I really enjoyed this brew.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2007 Cool looking bottle, but things kind of go down hill from there. Iím a big Double/Impy IPA fan that never met a IIPA I didnít like - until now. This oneís not too bad overall, but for the style its pretty sub-par. Amber color with small head. Light citrusy-floral hop aroma with sugary malt essence. Sweet taste, but hops seem to be all over the place with no balance. I guess I just get upset when brewers make sub-par Impy IPAs, stouts, etc. Try a little harder next time.

hepburn82 (143) - SCOTLAND - NOV 21, 2006
Great looking product - loving the wax seal. Pours golden copper. Less than average carbonation with a little stretched lacing as it drops. Piney, earthy, bready aroma. Perhaps not as powerfully hoppy as you might imagine. Has a little of that sweatiness so common in this breed of US IIPAs. The flavor lingers and finish is a bit cloying to be honest. Much more fruit when in the mouth. Less than world class but a decent IIPA. Carb not to lively going down and pretty smooth. The high hop content hides the strength well, i think.

JMerritt (1890) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2006
Hazy apple juice color, very thin ring of a white head. Aroma: pine, nectarine, grapefruit, caramel, and alcohol. Mellowed flavor, with moderate bitterness and some cardboard. Toffee, papery finish.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2006
Bomber courtesy of Immy. This beer gets my vote for best presentation, while still in the bottle. Pours a clear orange/copper with thin tan head. Nose is spicey hops and sweet malt. Flavor has a large malt component, sweet and orange with a bitter finish. Thick palate.
