Light copper, very slight haze, small head, light lace (probably the glass) Subdued aroma of citrus, sugary malt, caramel, light alcohol vapors but that was just at first and cannot smell it anymore, hints of pine and other hop nuances. I am a bit stuffy so there might be more here. Full body, almost creamy, lush feel, smooth. Chewy malt and hop flavors very well integrated. This is real nice, hops dont kill you even with 150 IBUís, excellent friggin balance and some flavors I cannot discern, I think the goldings. Long bitter finish. Blows my mind this is 11% b/c I do not taste it. One of the best and memorable Imperial IPAís I have had in a long time. Will revisit when sinuses are clear.

Pour was thick and amber colored. Aroma was out of this world made my mouth water. Flavor was extremely complex. Orange zest a hint of grapefruit. with a caramel malt background. Heavy heady brew. That is very well balanced.

Ughsmash (7001) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Bottled. Pour was an oily, medium caramel with only a ring of off-white head headage. Nose, however, was phenominal! High hop concentrations let loose a titanic blast of orange and lemon zest with noticable (but subdued) rich caramel malt behind it... you could smell this from 17 feet away! Not quite as powerful in flavor, but still damn good... citrus and pine stole the show, yet again with the respectable malty balance. Hoppy bitters and alcohol highlights throughout the rather heavy brew. Great stuff!

Schroppfy (2360) - Łůdż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Well, this is juicy for sure, busting with grapefruit and oily pine sap goodness. Countered (but not seamlessly at all) with a great sugary malt dose. Heavy. Feels the ABV soon, if you get my drift. I like the hop component but was left wanting a bit more grasssy touch, and the malt was clingy even while a long bitter finish was wonderful. So Iím ambivalent a bit about this one. Like gravy to potatoes, Luke to Darth Vader, Iím a suped-up suckah and Iíll see you all later.

Translucent amber bronze in color with some wisps on top serving as a minor head. Holy hop brigade! Whew. Here we go... Sweet nectarine, apricot and a grapefruit-mango sock-Ďem-dead punch line the nose. Of course itís hops forward, but the sweet sugary wafts emanating from it tear at the heartstrings. Oily intuition promotes a challenging, boisterous flavor. Mango fruit salad, nectarine and orange rind are absolutely authoritative. Bitter brigade professes the very definition of an imperial IPA. Orange powder, grapefruit rind and smooth butterscotch. Titillating, oozy palate transcendence takes hold and presses its eccentricity upon any taste bud up for the challenge. Quite an arid, cleanly, painstakingly bitter performance, reaffirmed once more in the finish. What a treat!

Bottle: Fiery amber, large soft light beige head, long lasting, enjoyable lacing, light carbonation. † Sweet pine like aroma, slight citrus rind, otherwise definitely not hoppy like other examples. † It even seems a bit candyish in its sweetness. † Sweet malty goodness to start, bitterness is there but it is quite low. † Citrus and pine like sweetness hold this one together very nicely. † Smooth... amazingly smooth on the tongue. † Clean, I should also mention that this sucker has no residuals that linger. † This is a good example of why I love this style! † 11% ABV?!?! † You gotta be kidding me. † Deceptively dangerous in its abilities. † Coaxes you to drink more and more. † Amazingly well balanced and juicy. † Body and mouthfeel are as well rounded and full as they come. † Viscous, coating the tongue well. † While the aroma is fairly simple, the flavor and palate of this beer are much more complex. † Amazingly easy to drink, with only a light hop bitterness that lingers long after the finish. † This beer is deserving of being in the Top 50 as far as I am concerned. † A HUGE thanks to my main man Dan for sending me a couple bottles of this. † The guys at Hard Liver 2006 really really enjoyed this one. † When that crowd actually likes a beer, its deserving of a crown. † WOW!!!

The aroma jumps out of the glass. Sweet juicy clementine oranges. Pineapple, peaches, awesome. The beer is copper colored. The flavor is juicy, mouth watering hops. Citrusy and hoppy. Light chalky palate due to the extreme amount of hops.

On tap at Mugís Ale House. Clear light copper color with a small beige head. Big citrus and pine hop aromas dominate, with just a touch of malt in the background. Caramel malts come on much more in the flavor, but this is still a hop bomb. Delicious beer and could not believe the alcohol content was so high. Just a hint of the alcohol comes through on the finish.

First comment is wow I couldnít tell this was 11%. I had no idea until I went to put my rating in. Crystal clear ruby/amber color with a small off-white head. A little larger and it gets a 5 because the color is beautiful. Big hoppy aroma of citrus, pine, and grass. I canít smell the alcohol. Some fruitness underneath. Big flavors of caramel, citrus and pine all mixed together and very nicely balanced. Nice bitter back bone to give balance to the sweetness. Full-bodied silky and just shy of syrupy. Yum Yum Yummy. So easy to drink. This is very dangerous. My wife canít tell it is 11% and I ainít telling her until it is too late. Wink Wink.
