Bottle. Pours a chunky orange gold with a thick long lasting white head head. Pungent pine and citrus hop notes, resiny, with some toffee thrown in there. Thick malt body, toffee, resiny chewy piney, citrus hop bitterness. I will debate the freshness of this, as is seems to be very barley wine like in the body. Would like more of a crisp, hoppy finish, so only decent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy amber body with particles and a white head. The nose is quite sweet with caramel and brown sugar, as well as it is bitter with grapefruit and lemon. Full body, a little sticky palate. Strong flavour with grapefruit, lots of hops and a dry bitter finish.

Draught at Waldo Pizza. Pours an opaque golden color. Aroma of cherries, grass. Flavor is bubblegum, spice, alcohol, fruit. Okay, but quite odd for an Imperial IPA.

Lovely orange colour. Floral hoppy notes. A great example of american influenced belgian beers. Very easy to drink for a 9% beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a big white head and lots of lacing. Love how this looks. Aroma of brown sugar, marzipan, sauteed apples, subtle citrus and grass, toffee, and alcohol vapors. Flavor of light brown sugar, toast, earth, bitterness, slight citrus, pepper, apples and alcohol. Drier than the aroma indicates. Finishes like a bitter, spicy and grassy marzipan. Slightly hot, but otherwise creamy, medium full bodied, and fluffy mouthfeel. It’s got some nice components, but I don’t think I prefer the way its hopped.

(750ml bottle thanks to mar) pours cloudy orange, thick and lasting medium tan head. Nose of caramel, candi sugar, sugar cane, citrus hops, rich and smells great. Taste is a lot more bitter than the nose though. Taste of pine, herbal, very grassy, bitter and citrus peel oils. Bitter finish, dry palate.

Si no fos una IPA la puntuaria millor. Però crec que és excessivament alcohòlica i llaminerament dolça per ser una bona IPA. L’alcohol es menja el Dry Hopping. Una llàstima.
