Poured a surprising pale yellow with a whispy head with nice lacing. Grassy nose and decent balance in the mouth.

Floral hops for sure. Pours a great color but smells a bit musty. Drinks like a nice IPA and hides it's 9% ABV well. - pixels sent via Beer Buddy on iOS

edwardbass (571) - Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Hazy yellow color with nearly no head. Aroma is tropical fruit, grassy, citrus, some earthiness. The taste is tropical fruit and citrus hops with a well-balanced malt sweetness. It’s "juicy", but not dramatically so. The palate is not as "thick" as I was expecting, and is probably my least favorite aspect of this beer. However, it is an excellent DIPA.

arkurzynski (1611) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Slightly hazy gold. Nose of candied malt and citrus with melon and grapefruit. Flavor is initially deep pine before giving way to grapefruit and juicy melon and canteloupe. Lingering pine and melon. Unbelievably juicy fruit in flavor.

Slightly hazy gold color. Full body, very intense flavors, rich mouthfeel, high heat, silky texture, long palate. Very bitter but with enough sweetness in background. Floral hops, resiny, fruity, pineapple, Delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zeswaft (1422) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle. Super pungent almost vegetable, B.O. aroma. Laced with tropical fruit. Light gold color. Rich hop character. Mango and pineapple flavors abound. Subtle malt provides some minimal balance. 9% well hidden. I like this a lot. Best imperial mosaic that i’ve had.
