Pours a golden amber clear with 1 finger head and heavy lacing. Aroma of toasted malt, hops of tropical fruit and grapefruit. Tinge of sweet up front, then turns moderately bitter. Very well balanced. Full bodied. Long finish. This is a great beer.

"scores a 99/100 on rb, and i can see why. this "imperial amber ale" is simply great. the last reviewer had this to say "I challenge all those justifiably proud of their west coast offerings to try this beer" well, challenge accepted, and i can happily say this competes with the better ipas out west. recently had sculpin and would love to have these head to head. bright floral and citrus aroma with just enough sweet malt to balance. smooth tingly feel. flavor is a little tropical (peach and mango) and a lot of bitter grapefruit, with a splash of caramel malt. very well done! a wish-list cross-ff thanks to Lou! GREAT beer.

Saeglopur (364) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 1, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2014 Draught at Tap House Munich. Dark amber, hazy body, with a big, very creamy, slightly yellow head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, peach, tropical fruits, caramel. Wonderful taste with the same aromas, also a very smooth biscuit. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes smooth, bitter, with pine, lemon zest, fruits and biscuit. Wow, tasty! So smooth and amazingly balanced, sweet, fruity, bitter and piney aromas perfectly blended together! Also the balance between full flavour and drinkability is perfect. Completely worth the ratings and even more!

rumproasts (2936) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2014
bottle. Amber with one finger head. It’s a hopped up amber with nugget and other piney hops. Pretty solid for an amber, but for a 100/100 rated beer, I’m a bit confused where all the love is coming from. very solid, just not exceptional to me.

Alengrin (2065) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
East coast IPA (instead of the usual west coast) with thick, sticky, yellowish white head and deep amber colour with coppery hue. Very strong hops aroma but in a mild, floral and herbal way, grapefruit, bitter honey, meat broth, peach, rosewater, freshly grated ginger, pepper. Smooth, resinous, fresh citrussy fruitiness, peach, honeyish, bit caramelly in the background, supple, hints of thyme and sage, very long sticky, green, oily, herbal hop bitterness in the finish, dry-hopped. Delicious throughout, if you’re into this style like me.

jmagnus87 (2438) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly hazy dark orange with a half finger if off white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits with a decent caramel backbone. Taste is heavily bitter. Follows aroma with the addition of grapefruit. Full bodied with a surprisingly creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Lives up to the hype.

CraftBeerNick (920) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Keg at Munich Taphouse, 23rd July 14. An amazing looking beer, beautiful soft head and dark amber colour, very inviting. The aroma is pine and undertones of sweet malt. Flavour is spot on smooth and a great malt backbone complements the hops. Really great

RRistow12 (261) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy amber with white head. Aroma is more malty than expected. Biscuity, sweet and some pine notes. Taste is more bitter than the nose. Moderate to heavily bitter. Caramel, biscuits make a nice backbone to the pine, resin hoppy bitterness. Crisp mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Pretty solid IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oxidized hop aroma. Clear Amber with excellent foam. Dank hop taste. Perfect palate. Dry finish. Underwhelming. I was expecting more.
