From a 22oz bomber. Pours a clear amber/orange with a white head, great lacing. Aromas of citrus, mango, and hops. Taste of citrus, mango, and lots of hops, balanced out by sweet caramel malts. Amazing DIPA, probably my favorite from FFF.

Very sweet with a generous dose of hops to lend itself the characteristcs of an IPA. However, the sweet maltiness and the big (although well hidden) alcohol prescence bring out the imperial nature of it.

Bottle from West Lakeview Liquor. Pours a sexy golden orange colour with a firm white head. Superb lacing clinging to the glass. Wow. Aromas of citrus, pine, grapefruit and orange peel. Pine hops and grainy Malts as well. Taste is a heavy pine hop bitterness that holds insanely well. There's a hint of mango and a caramel malt backbone. Well carbonated. Mouth is coated pure awesome. Sensational beer for my 1000th rating, cheers!

Big, big, big. Month and a half old, so may be missing some of the bitter. Very malty finish, but wonderful big IPA opening. Almost a Carmel flavor, which works wonderfully with the bitter. Highly recommend.

Draught almost muddy brown colour with small head. Aroma is fruity of pine and mango, and also dry and hoppy with taste of toffee caramel and citrus, really nice but I think I have tasted better then this.

This is an amazing IPA. Pours a golden amber with a foamy white head that is two fingers. The head liners for some time. Awesome citrusy fruity aromas consisting of mango, lemon, finished with some resinous notes. Flavors of pine, citrus, and balanced with a caramel sweetness. Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation, and high level of bitterness. Insanely drinkable!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle, stamp says bottled on 09/29/2014. Served in a snifter, the beer pours an orange/copper color with about an inch and a half frothy off-white head that stayed around a long time. There’s also a lot of lacing. The brew smells mostly like citrusy (lemon peel, grapefruit, orange) and pine hops, along with some grainy/bready malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some mango and caramel malt noticeable. It has a nice bitter hoppy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s coating with a good amount of carbonation. I think it’s a pretty good overall Imperial IPA, I liked it. $11.99 a bottle.

Had this guy off of a cask at BW3 Indy. Very sweet with a generous dose of hops to lend itself the characteristcs of an IPA. However, the sweet maltiness and the big (although well hidden) alcohol prescence bring out the imperial nature of it. An interesting beer that I greatly enjoyed.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours an ever so slightly hazy golden with a big off white head. Aroma is tremendous, with sweet hoppy apricots and soft tropical mango, as well as elderflowers, lychee and bittering orange peel. Medium to full body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet hops with apricots and mango, bitter orange peel and pine, as well as a nice malt back with toffee. Bitter finish with grapefruit and resin. A fantastic brew! Subtle and easy drinking, yet hoppy and aggressive. Probably the best DIPA ever, and definitely worth the hype!
