Solid, orange-brown color, no head. Hoppy but not overwhelming. Have to admit the alcohol was understated, but it drank like a barley wine.

I could swear the alcohol is back to 9. something but I could be wrong. Being from NY this is an imperial if any I can get from some convenient stores and usually offered in the supermarkets with bombers. It has a nice aroma and hop flavors of pine and citrus well balanced but the malt is a little thin.

dark amber color, with a surprisingly good head (but one that doesnít last). somehow, 22 ounces of beer weighs 18 pounds...i thought it would eat through the drinkware. heavy and viscous. tons of malt atop a complex hop aroma. the flavor was also sweeter and heavier than iíd preferred (or expected) but it was still quite good. somewhere closer to a barleywine than a IIPA, but thicker than either. Unearthly indeed."

HUGE mango right after opening the top, like filled the air all around me. Poured it and just even more fresh mango juice. Really awesome smelling beer. Taste is super fresh. More fruit juice and a very dry bitterness. This one is insanely good and does everything right. Iíve only had one other beer from southern tier so this just made me realize I need to try more of theirs. Excellent! Cheers

Clear Orange pour with nice white head. Aroma is hoppy citrus. Taste is sweet caramelized orange. Not usually a fan of ipas this sweet, but this was dam good. Use this as an intermediate beer for the new comers.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Murky amber-copper, nearly opaque with an off-white, semi-chunky, two-finger layer of foam. Decent lacing. Spicy hop aroma... Certainly earthy. Moderate resins & pine with a largely sweet, caramely malt backbone full of toasted, slightly under-attenuated maltiness. Big, heavy, sticky, thick mouth feel, almost too "robust" for a DIPA. Hops give off flavors of spicy white pepper, coriander, grapefruit rind, alpha oil, resin, lemon & orange zest, almost with a PineSol vibe. Liberal malt; heavy caramel, toffee, even a touch of honey or molasses injecting a big sweetness. Sticky brew with a slight metallic & stale off-tone in the aftertaste. Iíve had this one a few times now, & while I donít think itís "bad" per se, I never understand the high(ish) ratings it gets. Too sweet for me.

Well balanced. Nice hoppiness. Not too bitter. Malt notes balance the hops well. Notes of honey in the finish really stick to the palate.

Pours a shade darker than the typical DIPA amber with a smallish head of fine foam. The smell of the beer was earthy, a little citric, and milder than I was hoping. The taste was more hop-centric than the smell, as the citric flavors seemed to kick into overdrive at the start of the sip. The beer stayed citric mid palette, and allowed a touch of watermelon to slip in towards the end of the sip. The finish was surprisingly a little sweet, and the aftertaste was herbal. This was quite complex for the style. The body was medium dense and the feel sticky. A balanced DIPA.

The malt is a bit overpowering. Some honey and sweetness aroma notes. Too much malt and not enough hop bitterness for my preference.
