COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
So we made a mistake and we got a bigger IPA. This thing is big, and it’s in charge. Time to bring aboard “The Admiral”.

Really solid. A bit more malty and bitter and pine-hop influenced than their other big ipa. Still, a really lovely beer.

Alcohol is well hidden. Nice fat maltiness with some good citrus notes. Foamy mouthfeel.

Draft. Little aroma. Ruby-caramel color with thick lace. Flavors are strikingly mild for a DIPA but include toasted pine nuts, some orange and toast crust. Maybe some honey on the finish. A little bit muddled, but seems close.

Rich, hazy orange and copper coloured body with a nice tan head, only about a centimetre tall. Aroma of pungent tropical fruits, hops (of course), alcohol and a nice rich malt backbone. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong hoppy flavour at first, tropical fruits, light pine, strong syrupy maltiness and a rich deep alcohol note at the end. Aftertaste shows a very well-balanced hoppy flavour with tropical fruits, a touch of sugars and a nice complexity at the end. Overall, a surprisingly well-balanced, robust Imperial IPA with a smooth hoppy flavour at the end - great, to be honest. I sampled this pint on draught for US$7,00 at TJ Stone’s in Alexandria, Virginia on 28-August-2015.

Light citrus with some big pine. Pours cloudy orange with good head and lacing. Medium bitter finish. Some guava. Nice stuff actually. Tap at Galaxy Hut.

Good-looking IPA with a fantastic deal of citrus, lupulin, and funky hops. Long finish, soapy and good.

Draught. This is a nice snappy little IPA with big bold flavor and a refined finish. Well worth seeking out.
