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 lover’s soul!

So much flavor. Excellent balance of hoppy bitterness and sweet malt. Tastes almost chocolaty, but very complex.

Reminds me of Shmaltz Lenny's RIPA. Full bodied, sweet, malty flavor. Plenty of hops. Really good.

Of IPAs, one of the most balanced. Aroma is sweet and hoppy, with enough zest. Color is orange and opaque with a large white head. Taste is bitter but sweet, hop melding with sugar sweet. Palate is just the right thickness. Great IPA.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2010
Very nice ipa. Pours a copper and honey shaded body with a mild white head. Citrus and tangerines give way to a green grassy hop tone, a mild tea note. A bit brash with a strong hop oily finish, very nice.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2010
Tap @ CCB. Pours a clear golden orange with a tall egg shell head. Nose is fairly balanced between the slightly more forward citric, piney hop notes and the caramel and pale malt notes. Medium to full body with good carbonation and a slightly sticky mouth feel. Flavor starts with a good amount of sweet caramel malt before opening up some nice piney, spicy hop notes, light grass and honey are also present. Finishes with moderate hop bitterness. Solid.

On Tap at Brewer’s Ball. A: Pours a nice golden hue with a tall off white head. Okay retention with some nice lace. S: Aromas of sweet malt, bread, citrus and herbal hops. T: Caramel, and sweet bready malts in the flavor as well. Nice hop profile. Lots of citrus with mild pine. The finish is herbal, green, and bitter. I liked it. M: On the fuller side of medium, crisp, bright.

Ibrew2or3 (7050) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 30, 2010
On tap on cask at the ‘010 FL Brewer’s Ball. Pours up copper with slight haze and off white head. The aroma is pretty robust with hop spiciness, some sweet malts, floral, a touch of soap and hop resin. The taste is sweet malts moving to pine hop resin, hop spiciness, a touch of grapefruit and staying hop resiny into the finish. It has lingering hops resin supported by echoes of malty sweetness heading deep into the after taste. Full of flavor. Nice!

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.
