COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our limited release Imperial IPA is all about excess. We use massive quantities of the finest European barley malts and American hops to produce a wonderfully malty beer with outrageous hop expression. From the initial aroma, through the balanced finish and the lingering hop flavors that coat your palette, 10-10-10 is truly fertilizer for the hop loverís soul!

Draft at Hunahpus Day. Pours orange/gold with a medium off white head. Aroma is caramel malt, apricots, oranges, and hops. Flavor is sweet fruits (apricots, oranges, pineapple, grapefruit) up front and turns into a nice piney hop bite with some booze on the back. Medium/full body. Really good beer.

Pours orange with thin white head. Nose is big citrus and pine melded with sweet caramel. Flavor is crisp malt, sweet caramel, hints of grain, big orange peel, lemon rind, pine needles.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
On-tap at the Hunaphu release... Pours a murky dark gold. The head off white rises a couple fingers, gone quickly, ok lace... The aroma is caramel malt with citrus, alcohol, and some hops on the finish. Ok... The taste is a little too strong with too much alcohol and just a little blah, not very flavorful. Alcohol with generic hops. Not a big fan of this, nothing new.

On draft at the Hunahpu release. Pours an orange-yellow with a white head. Nose is a citrus burst with lots of orange, grapefruit, apricot, peach, and malt. Flavor is similar with well-hidden alcohol and lots of citrus. Medium-bodied and nice outside drinking beer. Dangerously drinkable at 10% ABV.

mlunger12 (645) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Had this on tap at Hunahpu Day 2011. Pours an interesting tan lacing, very malty, when I have a double IPA I want the enamel ripped off my teeth. Ahhh... alright

woehmig (4) - Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2010 does not count
So much flavor. Excellent balance of hoppy bitterness and sweet malt. Tastes almost chocolaty, but very complex.

erickok (3199) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 14, 2010
Dark orange and very little head. Floral, earthy, cooked vegetables. Though this IPA is balanced at first, it is dry and astringent later. Loads of flavour but not delcate in any way. Pretty good if youíre into it. (On tab in Stubbies)

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2010
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a dark, lightly hazy, golden-amber hue with a small, swirly, off-white head. Trace spots of lacing are scattered about the glass. The nose is far too saccharine for a double IPA, loaded with sweet caramel, dessert bread, and sugared, slightly stale cereal grain malts that collectively outpace a weak, muddled, floral and citrus hop contingent. Notes of orange rind and grass peek out here and there, but just canít overcome the malt avalanche. Flavors follow suit, showing far too sweet and malty, laden with hefty caramel, biscuit, and cookie malts. Grassy-citrus hop bitterness seems old and tattered, tired from fighting the intense sugars. Somehow, despite the massive malt billing, this stuff manages a relatively weak palate, showing considerably more watery than one would expect. Carbonation is on the light side, lending a bit of a lifeless feel. Alcohol burns on the finish. This one isnít impressive in the least bit.

tastybeer (1610) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Draft. Pours golden with a thick white head. Flavor is big piney and grapefruit hops. Enjoyable DIPA.

Lubiere (9440) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2010
A clear golden amber IPA with a thin white head. Another meaty and floral hops aroma, with some nice muskey notes, almost sexual. In mouth, an intense malt with nicely balanced floral hops, oily resins, quite nice and classic, warming alcohol, just right. On tap at Cigar City, May 22 2010.
