daknole (10848) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Orange pour with a creamy white head. Aroma is fruity right off the bat, some caramel and the hops don’t make themself overly present in the nose. Flavor is much maltier up front but at the finish you get a nice hop bite. Pretty bitter finish. Overall a nice brew.

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear orangish amber with a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces slightly. Aroma has a good amount of pine with with a bit of sweet grains and a hint of caramel. Flavor begins with a good amount of pine that has a bit of resin and mellows to have some sweet grains in the finish.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 16, 2011
355mL thanks to blutt59. Pours a clear orange orange with a large, off-white head. Rings of sticky lace. Nose is sticky booze, red fruits, sweet nectarine. Taste up front is richer, syrupy, and sharp boozy. Ends with pretty soft balance. Not bad at all but sugary and pretty boozy. Not really bitter at all.

Big grapefruit and sweet malt on the nose. A little sweet and think but enough bitterness as well. Good if not quite a standout.

djd07 (9755) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Sampled at Texas Beerfest. Pours a cloudy orange with a medium creamy beige head. The aroma is a strong floral hop and grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet cascade hop with a nice light bitter finish. Hides the alcohol well making it easy to drink, a very good IIPA from Squatters.

12oz bottle my great parents brought back from a recent road trip. "Born: 5/27/2011". Orange color with lots of fine, suspended sediment, so beautiful when you shine a light through it. Webby lacing on the surface, and some on the side of the glass as well. Mm. Great, solid maltiness. Mild alcohol but no warm burn, complements the resin hop nicely. The level of hop is very appropriate, it’s conservative but nice. Mild bitterness. Very light, crisp carbonation, long aftertaste. This brew is definitely a sipper, and for that purpose this palate is perfect in my opinion. Solid and satisfying... Another fantastic Imperial IPA.

BVery (9514) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Bottle. Very slightly hazy orange pour with a small soapy white head. Nose is pine and tropical fruit hops, but I’m getting a bit of aspirin in the nose as well. Wonder if this bottle is a bit old. Moderate palate with good carbonation. Taste is an initial sharp pine and pineapple hop, but its well balanced and finishes clean. Thinking I need to try this a bit fresher.
