JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Clear amber color with a taller popcorn colored head. Light pale malt with resins that meander about, but donít seem to mix with the rest of what is going on. Too volatile? Unbalance? Too young? I am not getting it. Sweet grapefruit, with a mild bit of malt in the back. Perhaps this is older and losing ground quickly in the hops, but the earthy malt and caramel dominate in the finish and there is little backbone of good malt. An eastern try at a PNW brew that missed my mark.

Pours clear, dark amber into a tulip. Caramel, pine and citrus (orange, grapefruit) notes. Head quickly recedes leaving slight lacing. Sticky and full. First tingles the tongue with bitter, but turns to a well balanced caramel until turning back to the citrus hop finish.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 25, 2006
Draft poured into tulip. Coppery orange color. Aroma of ripe stone fruits, some pinapple and tropical flowers. A blast of hops on first taste, then becoming a sweet combination of orange, honey and spice through the finish. Made me grin stupidly.

Sammy (8636) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2006
I am not normally a big fan of this style, though I did like this one. It was a very good hop mix and tasty, well malted. Hop resin, grapefruit aroma. Very drinkable

noelcb (271) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2006
Dark bronze color, slightly hazy. Smallish bubbly white head, some nice lacing. Aromas of apricot, flowers, fresh herbs, toasty biscuity malt, and alcohol with some bubblegum, anise, lavender, blueberries, citrus, live grass, and caramel. Taste is very strong and full bodied yet well-balanced. Grapefruity, piney hops, sweet and smoky malt, biscuits, caramel/toffee, brown sugar/molasses, vanilla, peat, raisins, blueberries, strawberries, candy sugar and fruitcake. Mouthfeel is solid but not syrupy, mildly effervescent and cleansing/refreshing. Dry hop finish with a lingering herbal, slightly metallic, aftertaste. A bomber of this is a perfect match for a long warm summer evening.

Nice golden-red body with a tan head. Heavy pine and hone accents in the aroma, a nice hop presence as well. Awesome body, smooth and cool. Great taste, pines, sweet fruits, hone and spices. Clean ending with a hine of fruit rhind.

A quickly disappearing head.A crystal clear deep red pour, with the thinnest film of bubbles atop after the head makes its hasty exit. Iím just going to say, "YES!" This is a fantastic IIPA. More IIPA than even San Diego (my hometown) IIPAís....and SDíians invented them, according to some people. At some point, the general hophead populus began to associate SD with hoppy beers. The IIPA would be the prime example of such a brew, and as a rule, at least in my biased eyes, SD has followed through on the IPA, IIPA, and even the hoppy APA varieties in spades. Just look at the top 100 here. SD brews rule. But this beer is not an SD beer. This is, well, unearthly, if taken at face value. SD IIPAs tend to go overly hoppy for my tastes. Mind you, I love hops, flipping out over hoppy brews even, but I want a beer that has balance. This one exceeds that expectation. Of course, IIPAs usually have a hop overload. In this case, the malts take center stage. Syrupy sweet, all molasses, but with that hop bitterness finish. Whoa, this is a beer that will make you stand up. I think un*earthly and expo hoppy need to have a talk. This might be my favorite beer since Iíve joined this site. Like the punk-rock of IIPAs. All balls! Thanks to the_Epeeist for the trade!

This Imperial India Pale Ale pours a deep orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is juicy hops, floral, grapefruit and piney. A full bodied Imperial IPA. Malts are cookie and biscuit. Lots of piney and grapefruity hops at the start, with some floral hops in the middle. A big juicy IPA. Lots of hop bitterness mostly balanced by the sweet fruity malts. Lively carbonation. Hides the 11% alcohol very well. Kind of chewy and thick. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is bitter.

22oz - Aroma of sweet fruit, citrus hops, and carmel. Pours dark orange with a medium off-white lasting head and great lacing. Flavor is more subtle than aroma with the carmel malt and fruit taking the lead with a mild hop follow through. Palate is sticky and sweet. Very tasty, but I think this bottle isnít as fresh as Iíd like it to be.

Bottle provided by Styles. Thanks Chris. Clear amber body with a medium sized, off-white head. The aroma is juicey with apricot/peach and grapefruit, some caramel as well. The flavor is very sweet, lots of caramel, the juicy hops get lost in all this malt. Medium/full body with a sticky texture and an astringent finish.
