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!

12oz WL beer thanks to fatknitty! Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a finger of foamy white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, rotted citrus, grapefruit, and a bit of pine. Taste mimics the nose with lots of pine and zesty bitterness.

trapped (2071) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle thanks to Jsquire. Pours clear rich yellow with small off-white foamy head, faint grassy hops aroma, medium carbonation, slightly sweet hoppy taste, long hoppy finish. Very nice IPA with smooth mouthfeel despite the high alcohol content.

Evolutionary (454) - Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Tap at local roots. Nose is all hop with a bit of sweetness in there. Hop bite is muted by sugar up front. Little floral notes until the end. A bit too sugary for me but smooth as butter.

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 (4400) - 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.
