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!

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.

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

shrubber85 (8235) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2014
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.

From a bottle into a small glass. Pours with a massive thick head. Lots o lacing. Dank grassy aroma. Mouthfeel is thick. Taste is kind of a muddle of tropical fruit and pine with some skunk and herbs. Pretty good. I liked it more than my rating suggests. But it's not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jredmond (5815) - Manhattan, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle with Paul. Pours a clear golden body with thick white head and lacing. Aroma is soapy, fresh grassy hops and clean pale malt. Mouthfeel is thin, clean and soft with more malt character coming through than preferred, but still nice.

"citrus, tropical and grapefruit hops in the nose and flavor. a little too much biscuit malt (no date on the bottle so can’t tell the age) prevents this from receiving a really high score. still very nice and an easy drinking iipa. thanks ggrumet!"

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle received in trade from a non-RB member. Lovely medium amber pour leading up to a tremendous off-white head. The aroma is nicely hopped and full of toasted biscuit characteristics. Superior balance and inviting. The body is medium to full and smooth. Malt characters begin the consumption experience but then like a funnel the earthy, bitter hops trickle in and then abound.

Wittales (678) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Thanks JBruner for Local trade. Appearance was clear deep gold with diminishing creamy white 1 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are orange, pine, soft lemon and grapefruit with slight sweet malts and alcohol. Taste are orange blast out the gate with pine, lemon, soft sweet malt, then some warming at finish. Palate are smooth creamy CO2 with medium-full body, then lasting oily slick fruity, piney finish. A wonderful DIPA, but touch to much pine for me.
