COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

JustDrinkIt (261) - Arizona, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Tangerine colored pour with moderate white head. Aroma of big citrus, tropical hops, mango, apricot. Flavor is well balanced with a grassy hop bitterness, citrus, and a subtle honey quality.

ttoadee (921) - 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 (830) - - 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.

Can pour dark gold with orange hue and moderate white head. Nose dank hop, over ripe tropical fruit, resin, sweet malt. Taste moderate strong bitter up front, then some papaya hop. Mid palate heat from alcohol and bitter continues.

Can at James’ 10k tasting. Pours a mostly clear amber with a thin white head. Soft musk and citrus on the nose. Medium bodied, spicy with some bright citrus and malt. Sweet on the finish.

AmEricanbrew (6320) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Big cans at the June 2015 trailer park ’ fuck, the Red River’s flooding us out ’ sand bagging and beer tasting extravaganza. Glowing rusty amber color with ivory head. Citrusy, floral, tropical fruit aromas. Smooth medium body. Big citrusy, tropical fruit, tangy alcohol flavors in a lightly sweet pale malt base brew---drying finish____good.

natejgood (416) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Pours a nice medium golden. Slightly hazy. Aroma of pine and fresh cut grass. Floral hops as well. Slightly more malty than I would have thought based on the aroma. Slightly bitter along the back sides of the tongue. For a 10% beer this beer is smooth in the mouth and has little to no alcohol flavor. If you aren’t looking for something completely overhopped this is a pretty good imperial IPA.

jredmond (6142) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Can brought to Clockworks 10k tastin - April 19th, 2015. Pours a light golden orange body with thick white foamy head. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with notes of sweet caramel malt, grass and pine hop. Curious to try this one a bit fresher, as the malt character seemed to dominate, however with that being said it wasn’t bad. Well-balanced palate given the high alcohol.
