Welcome the newest addition to our year round lineup–Upslope Imperial India Pale Ale. Packaged exclusively in Ball Corporation’s 19.2 oz Royal Pint can, this assertively hopped 10% ABV Imperial IPA captures a bright orange color with a medium body. Each barrel is brewed using six pounds of a unique blend of hops to impart subtle flavors of pineapple and melon to the central hop notes of citrus and pine.

Pint+ can. Pours an unclear golden orange with a two inch beige head that slowly collapses. Taste is of malt, citrus, hops, pine, resin, dark fruit and caramel. Has a similar aroma. Has a sticky body that coats the mouth. Easy to drink, especially considering the alcohol. Easily one of the best beers I have had in a while.

Nearly 20 ounce can. Pours clear golden with a small white head. The aroma has a lot of citrus, tropical fruit, kiwi, pine. The taste has a nice bitterness, earthiness, tropical fruit notes. Enjoyable.

Coppery golden color with a smallish white head. Taste is quite sweet, some caramel, with a some tropical fruit. Hops are there, but take a back seat to sweetness. Pine resin and citrus rind are the hops. A really good IIPA, but a bit too sweet for tastes.

Terminus (3409) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Can-Pours bright deep orange hue with a small soapy white head and decent lacing. Nose is oxidized sweet hops. Slightly metallic. Light honeysuckle and flowers however the metallic notes sort of distort the nose. Flavors are a bit better-lots of sweet tropical hops, light alcohol and the flowery notes as well. The can says best by 9/11/15 so its within freshness range however, this one suffers from metallic oxidization. WOuld like to try this again on tap or fresh can. VERY long juicy citric finish lots of pinneaple, passionfruit and tangerine.

flemdawg (550) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Hazy orange body with a thin white head and good lacing. First thing I noticed in the aroma was not the expected hop bomb, but tropical fruits such as pineapple. That did give way to grapefruit hops as it warmed. Big grapefruit and piney hop flavor right off the bat, but I detected those pineapple flavors again mixed with honey of all things. Very pleasantly suprised with this one. I was expecting just another hop over load,but the fruity flavors were nice.

ttoadee (1079) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Slightly cloudy amber pour, decent off white head. Nose was woody hops. Bitter. Middle was medium roasted malt, caramel, earth, bark. Finish was steady, but not overpowering bitterness. Alcohol was almost nowhere to be tasted. This is a dangerous beer!

zoucrew102 (1012) - - JUN 21, 2015
Pint can. Sweet tropical fruit and grapefruit citrus aroma with some pine hop dankness. Pours golden colored with one finger of off-white head with good retention and some lacing. Starts with nice tropical fruit and grapefruit citrus flavors. Finishes dry but surprisingly smooth for an imperial IPA with some pine hop bitterness as well as grapefruit acidity coating the palate. Very drinkable and refreshing IPA.

20 oz can split 3 ways. Pours a clear bright golden color with a medium plus sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have nice citrus and resiny hops, caramel, toasted malts, moderate bitterness, good body, some tropical fruit, alcohol heat creeps in, this definitely fits in the mold of an imperial Ipa.
