COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A big bold Imperial IPA! The clean malt plays a supporting roll to the straight up Simcoe hops through and through that give this varietal hop bomb its bang!

Bottle from Erica and Chris. Pours a nice orange color with a small tan head. Aroma is a nice resiny piney citrus hit with a sweet caramel malt backbone. Taste is nice and hoppy with a lot of grapefruit and a little pine, sweet caramel. Big bitter ending, The alcohol was hidden well here.

Pours a golden Amber with a thick off white head. Silky creamy mouth feel with a immediate slam of those piney orangey simcoe hops. The hop taste lingers for a long time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

superspak (3418) - Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2015
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy bright orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, sticky, and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming lingering after the finish. Overall this is an excellent DIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering

Bottle @ home, thanks to michcam8 for sending. Pours a touch hazy bright orange appearance with an off white head. Aroma is a little spicy and creamy with lots of passion fruit, grapefruit, and oranges. Medium body. A touch boozy. Flavors of candy, tropical fruit, spicy hops, and pineapple. Fine.

TheCaptMatey (184) - Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Poured a pale gold with a frothy off white head. Aroma is citrus , biscuit malt, and floral hops. Flavor is sweet with tropical citrus fruits (grapefruit/lime) and herbal bitterness. Medium bodied with a slight chewy mouthfell. Sweet finish with little to no bitterness. Didn’t have much an expectation for this, but I must say that it is a juicy brew. Rich tropical flavor with minimal bitterness. Probably a better summer brew. Makes me wish winter was over.

mambossa (93) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Pours a bright hazy gold with great head retention throughout. Aroma of ripe citrus, banana, funky pine, and densely-sweet floral. Warm tropical fruit in flavor, sticky maltiness with a sharp floral hop on the roof of the mouth. Very interesting and very flavorful.

b33r (721) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2015
12oz bottle - Dark orange translucent orange with small foamy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is insane- tons of citrus- mango, pineapple, and peaches. Flavor is sweet and tangy, with great tropical fruits, piney hops, and slight bitter grapefruit, and light amber malts. I’ve had this before but it has never tasted better- wish I knew what batch it was

Bottle. Orange caramel malt and pine/grapefruit peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange toffee malt and moderately strong bitter grapefruit peel/pine flavor. Nice balance between the hops and malt without being too sweet. Very nice.
