4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle@home, from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Medium/strong aroma with slightly sweet and fresh fruits. Darker golden color with small white head and semi-hazy liquid. Medium/strong bold taste with slightly sweet notes of barely over aged mango and fruits. Some bitterness and citrus drying elements. Averagely balanced with medium/wide taste spectrum and long hoppy fruity aftertaste. Medium body with medium/light carbonation. Overall, bold and own still fresh taste. Could have some malty notes to be perfect.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dal colore dorato abbastanza opalescente con un cappello di schiuma bianca abbondante e persistente, questa imperial ipa presenta degli ottimi sentori agrumati e fruttati al naso (pompelmo, arancia, mandarino e frutta gialla matura). E’ troppo carbonata e con un corpo nella media e al palato predominano di nuovo i sentori citrici, con un bell’amaro resinoso sul finale. Sorso secco e bocca molto asciutta.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass; best before 3/14/2016, listed at 8.2% on the bottle. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Nice moderate dryness as well from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/sticky/resinous, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is gret. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome DIPA style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from SBL: Poured a hazy and dusty off colored yellow liquid and was accompanied with a frothy foam cap head that leaves behind sticky lacing. Aroma smells sweet with caramelized malts while a faint nose of hops bring about the smell of citrus fruit and onion. The flavor is bitter with hops that taste like eating a orange peel and a sweet onion which makes my mouth pucker in sensory to the strong flavoring. Beer taste boozy as if it has been spiked with vodka or silver tequila. Solid beer that delivers and was actually an affordable four-pack that delivered on the ABV.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear golden with a thin eggshell head, but the latter is an artifact of the pour. Aroma has a hoppy note, not much else. Hops really come out in the flavor, along with citrus and subtle malty tones. Mouthfeel presents firm body and strong fizz. Starts weak, finishes strong - and has a punch.
