COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t fight it, Spite It! To all the bike messengers out there who dedicate their lives to not giving in to the man. This Imperial IPA was brewed for your with Citra hops to help take your minds of grimy Lower Wacker, aimless pedestrians, a**hole security guards and of course, answering the infamous question: "what’s the weather like?" There may be slow days, but you gotta admit, it’s better than wasting your life away at a desk! Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop.

Location: Draft at Bad Apple, 6/11/14

Aroma: The aroma is heavy citrus/grapefruit, some pine and caramel notes as well
Appearance: Pours an orange-amber color with a decent sized beige head and decent lace
Flavor: The flavor is grapefruit/citrus, some sweetness, but with much more bitterness
Palate: The body is medium-full, decent carbonation, and some boozy heat as well
Overall Impression: This is a pretty nice high ABV DIPA. You definitely get some booze here, but it is a tasty beer. They did a nice job with this one.

Although this is labeled an, "IPA," it’s very much a double IPA. Very hazy, goldish yellow in color, with a light-colored head, it has a caramelized, light grain nose that’s really, really inviting. It’s a little piney, a little resinous, but also malty. And light - more of that light grain character in the flavor as well as the nose. It’s hoppy and alcoholic, but mellowed out. It’s very complex and there’s so something intriguing in the finish that it’s driving me nuts. It’s soooo… soft. I love the complex, serious, piney, resinous hops… alcohol… oils… everything is perfect here.

Grapefruit aroma, light copper color. Grapefruit taste, a little boozy. Hoppy and bitter, how I like it

kseecs16 (1192) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange amber with a creamy light tan head that leaves loops of lacing on the glass. Aroma is dank, resinous fresh hops on top of a caramel malt backbone. Balanced, with a notable toasty caramel body but a distinct and potent hop character with a spicy bitter finish. Interesting, somewhat muddy imperial IPA. This is not a bright clean hop expression, but is a good complex hop heavy beer.

Golden, amber. Crystal clear. DMS/infection, cooked corn/veggies. Astringent caramel malts, cotton candy, caramel corn. Bleach, alcohol. No hops. Smooth, creamy body. Grassy hops, warming burn. Do not recommend. Would try again or different offering. This seems infected.

nsquishee (585) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Pours a honey amber color with little head. Floral and tangerine aromas. Heavy sweet, lightly bitter, and semi-tart. Very smooth and finishes with a heavy, boozy hop flavor that lingers. Very nice!

Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Pours dark golden and hazy. Nose is of sweet cndied hops. Almost a barley wine mouth feel but hoppy and not over malted. Very interesting beer. Good.

Some spicy hops, lots of sweetness, a bit of candy like a barleywine. Decent double ipa.

ICEatALAMO (909) - Troy, Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle. The pour is a solid vibrant orange. The aroma is full of hops, plenty citrus notes. The taste is a mouthful, refreshing and bitter at the same time. Bitter aftertaste draws away from it a bit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
