sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2009
courtesy of wasatch. Pours orange, thin off-white head. Aroma plenty of hops, grapefruit, pine very upfront. Flavor, malty with a good bitter side. Lots of pine/spicy hops coupled with good grapefruit palate. The malty side remains rather weak. Bittersweet and lightly spicy finish.

deyholla (6481) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, 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.

DuffMan (6439) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 13, 2010
Bottle. Pours an orange amber, clear, with a big, lacy, gold-tinted head. Intensely resinous, grapefruity hop aroma. Oily hoppy body, juicy hops dominate, with the expected long bitter finish. This one struck the right balance for me, not too heavy or sticky, but still an immensely satisfying hop bomb.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Bottle courtesy of douglas88. Pours mahogany with a lasting white head. Smells of pronounced pine, grapefruit, some floral hints, pineapple, some spicy hints, caramel. Tastes of resin, some spice, sweet citrus, a nice bitterness, lots of citrus, velvety mouthfeel. Unexpected and excellent!

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2010
12 oz. bottle from footbalm- thanks again, Eric! Pours a nice, mostly clear amber with an inch-thick off white head that leaves some lacing in the glass. Aroma of earthy and herbal hops, caramel malts, citrus, pine, and soap. The flavor is also solid, with notes of pine resin, earthy hops, grapefruit, soap, caramel malts, alcohol, wet leaves, and tea. Medium-bodied, with a wet and malty mouthfeel and average carbonation. Some bitterness in the finish. Pretty good DIPA- nice work, Utah!

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Bottle:   Orangish straw, a bit cloudy, large frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Soft citrusy nose, a little resin and orange peel zest.   Malty tongue, caramel notes.   Soft bitterness follows.   Not a hop bomb by any means, and in fact a nice malty example of a big IPA.   The 9% ABV is well hidden.   Feels a little musty, not too bright or fresh.   Clean finish, but its a bit musty.   Certainly a malty example of an IIPA, which I enjoy, but its not too bright or fresh.   Thanks to pailhead for the bottle!

blutt59 (5999) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2009
bottle, thanks to bu11zeye, orange amber with no foam, sweet grapefruit aroma, good citric flavors with lighter floral notes and smooth body and finish

BVery (5930) - Burnsville, 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.

mcberko (5919) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2012
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a creamy white head. Pine trees on the nose, with peaches and sweet malts to back. Flavour of piney hops, grapefruits and other more subtle tropical fruits, and earthy caramel malts - bitter dry piney hops on the finish. Quite solid though nothing distinguishable about this that makes it a standout.

DrSilverworm (5899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2011
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.
