First of all, this bottle has horrendous label art. No matter. The pour is a clear reddish color. Thin white head. Aroma is orange and some sort of cleaning product. Like a citrus pine sol sort of thing. Flavor is totally thin and watery. Not sure how you manage this in an IIPA. It has the boozy candy sweetness of an imperial, but then no palate whatsoever. Flavors are fine. Just some candied orange peel and crystal malt. Not much bitterness, but who needs balance when there is so much flavor and body missing already. No off flavors to complain about, but not much to like.

Nice light amber, creamy white head. Alcohol and hops in the nose. Bitter. Middle is sweet malt tempered by alcohol. Finish is bitter, alcohol at first, but luckily hops closes out. Somewhat unbalanced for me.

Bottle. Tangerine and pepper/orange peel aroma. Hazy amber with small head. Sweet orange malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Light pepper finish. Pretty good.

Overall a very good beer. I would like a little more aroma. Alcohol taste is a little much but not excessively. Great value though.

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle: Clear amber with a thin, light tan cap. Bright orange/tangerine aroma. Taste is sweet, orange and tangerine flavoured malt, Almost nectar territory, honey-ish mead-like quality...... Fruity, mild bittering.....peel. A really nice, mild, Imperial. Easy and light for the ABV.

Enjoyed in a tulip glass, poured from a can. Aroma is floral, grass, citrus. Appearance orange, clear, minimal head. Taste is rich with hints of Tangerine. medium sweetness, lightly sour, lightly bitter. Palate is medium body, creamy, flat. Long finish. Overall a very enjoyable beer. Very drinkable, rich, almost amber rich flavor.

Can, poured in a pint glass, in Texas. Very solid head, foam sticks very nicely on the glass. The aroma is outstanding, definitely some top notch hops in this one. The 9% ABV is completely lost in the smooth balanced flavor of this beer, you can tell it's big, but you'll look down and the cans start piling up, very drinkable.
