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.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bomber. No idea what the label has to do with anything. Pretty, pale marigold orange and an anemic ivory head. I appreciate that the beer is pale, not red or brown as so many 2IPAs are. The nose is rife with tropical fruits and Christmas tree, also toffee malt aroma... but weird plastic and lychee lurk in the shadows. Tastes semisweet and insanely fruity, but not neccesarily hoppy, with a big presence of sultanas and white rum, and hints of orange and MD20/20. Thin razor bitterness and bracing alcohic heft. Creamy without being "thick". The aftertaste combines fruity apple and hot asphalt. Some jagged edges and quality issues throughout. Except for the abv, doesn’t seem especially "imperial".

flatmatt (1210) - Northville, Michigan, USA - MAY 3, 2015
22 oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange golden with a small white head. Aroma is citrusy orange and tropical fruit, sweet. Flavor has lots of orange citrus, candied, with hints of pine and tropical fruits; a bit of biscuit. It’s alright, but it leans too much on the orange.

elbernays (773) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle from McHughs. Pours amber with frothy lasting white head. Lots of spruce, pine, citrus with background of candy floss and bubblegum. Lots of syrup sweetness with a fairly strong bitterness on finish. Abv is there but managed fairly well. Pretty decent iipa

22 oz bottle pours a nice cloudy orange with a small off white head. More of a piney aroma upfront with citrus undertones. Taste is citrus, then a hint of sweetness.....molasses? Great carbonation, it’s smooth for an IPA, hides the ABV really well. This bottle has been in the cold room for 6 months at least, judging by the dust. I kept kicking the rating up on this as I drank it. Very good Imp IPA!

mixmasterob (938) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle from Bruisin. Shared with a few. Deep red pour with a frothy off white head. Big sweet caramel forward nose with some fruity hops and citrus. Flavors were sweet, lots of caramel, candied citrus fruit, bittersweet lingering finish. Touch of booze in the finish. Plus mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Maybe a tad hot but a decent big IPA.

Heavy fruity and bitter aroma and flavor. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth for a long while. Good beer but too bitter for me. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
