Had it on tap!! Pours a cloudy orange hue with a thin white head with a sour grapefruit aroma. The taste is super smooth for an Imperial "Guard" and tasty not overwhelming, notes of nuts(jk),grapefruit and mosaic hops. Victory is Ours!!!

hawthorne00 (3464) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2016
Bottle, more than a month in date. Pale gold with a white head. Lots of bubbles. Aroma of grapefruit, pineapple, mandarins. Quite sweet with peach and mango joining the other fruit. Plain hayish malt does little. Moderate bitterness as the fruit tails off. Some herbal and pine notes towards the end too. Presumably this has faded but it’s certainly hoppy. Rather dull though.

jimhilt (2552) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - APR 27, 2016
Pours a five finger white head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Almost clear pale amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Grapefruit hop nose, flavor is tart grapefruit balanced with caramel. Higher ABV is hidden. $3.49 for a 12oz bottle at Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma.

ZacM612 (556) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2016
Amber color with a slight haze, thin, quickly-dissipating head. Floral and citrusy aroma. Smooth, balanced IIPA with pleasing bitterness. Hides the 9% ABV well.

Andrew196 (1405) - Katy, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2016
Nice buttery hop aroma. Hazy light yellow with a thin foamy head. Nice bready malt backbone to it, well put together with a nice hop, sweet caramel blending.

Habanero (3956) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 23, 2016
Bottled. Pours hazy deep golden with an average off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, tropical fruit notes, pine and mild spicy. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and solid bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. An excellent DIPA. 🌟🌟🌟🌟
