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!

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.

Bottle share thanks to Homer321. hazy dark orange color. Earthy, danky, piney, sweet malt, mild fruit character. More of the danky piney character in the flavor, malty, caramel malt, a bit of boost in the finish.

Ferris (4144) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
Draft - Orange, caramel and a bit of booze. Cloudy copper orange with a thin white head. Sweet caramel, orange and a bit of booze. Like a Barleywine with the big malt build. Nice, and a direct relative of Big Nose.

750 ml grabbed from the brewery just this week. Poured fresh. A beautiful dark orange pour, a little hazy, with a two finger off white head that is looking super creamy. Floral aroma, grapefruit, orange rinds, som big toffee malt sweetness. Flavor is very malt forward with lots of sweet caramel, then a good but of grapefruit and orange rind follow and linger. The mouthfeel is slick, low carbonation for the style, with a bright fruity character that leaves this lighter than it should be on the palate. Overall this was more malt forward than I had hoped--bordering on a fresh American Barleywine--but a nice beer nonetheless. Don’t expect a big citrus west coast IPA when going into this and it is enjoyable.

jbruner (2315) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Growler shared thanks to kantrauch! Pours a hazy golden brown with light bubbly head, lost some carbonation in transit. Aroma of bready caramel, sweet malt, slight medley of citrus hops on top. Taste follows, bittersweet bready grain. Syrupy but no hint of the booze. Nothing spectacular, but not bad.

burg326 (3670) - Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2013
On draft at the Brass Tap in Trinity, poured a dark orange color with aromas of citrus, loads of pine and some grain. Flavors were pine, light citrus, caramel and more pine. A solid DIPA that I am very glad I finally got to try this one.

deyholla (6633) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the Cajun Cafe Fall Fest. Pours a hazy amber with a yellowish brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has sweet grains and caramel with a thick sappy pine hop note. Flavor starts with more bitter pine has some sappiness and a bit of caramel in the finish to balance the bitterness.

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

Really caramel-heavy, sweet DIPA that offers nothing beyond a semblance of grapefruit and orange marmalade in the nose. Totally undrinkable.
