COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
WinterCoat's Imperial IPA is light amber in color. The fruitiness from the ale yeast combines beautifully with the body of the malts and the feshness of the bops to create a very well-balanced, though very heavily hopped brew. Double Hop has a heady hop aroma without too much bitterness. The smooth taste belies its 8.5% alcohol content. This beer is dangerously pleasant to drink!

hayduke (3560) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Pours a cloudy orange color with a big white head and lots of lacing. Nose of alcohol, citrus, and some spices. Medium and alcoholic mouthfeel. Flavor is a little tart and sour with lot of citrus and some bitterness. While decent, verall this is a lot like a raw American Barleywine and not worth in any way the $17,88 this 750 ml bottle set me back. But that is the fate of a beer ticker.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2011
January 28, 2011 - on draught at Blue Monk. Pours hazy orange with an average fizzy white head. Strong aroma, like an american barleywine, alcohol, thick juicy malt, pungent resin/herbal bitterness, but a lot of lemon and citrus zest - more a winter brew. Taste follows - strong, very tart, the malt and bitterness take a backseat, quite strong alcohol. Average body, acidic and lively, a longish dry acidic finish - not really hoppy enough to be DIPA, but thatís just my take on it. Wasnít really in the mood for sour this day, wanted HOPS.

drpimento (2397) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Let this warm a bit out of the fridge. And drat, I think it might have turned. Poured with a slightly thick and creamy, cream to light tan head that slowly settled and some lace. Color is a clear medium amber. Aroma is yeast, funk, with just a slight bit of hop. Flavor is funk, sour sweet, chemical and basically undrinkable. Body is soft and full with good carbonation. Finish is too long even though itís not that long.. I was looking forward to this. What a disappointment!

mansquito (3916) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont, DC 12oz ($4.50hh): Pours a yellow orange color with a white head. Aroma is of cheese and mushrooms and dirt (this is a good thing). I donít think that most people who sampled this beer were seriously looking at the nuance present in this beer, because this beer was seriously dirty in the way a dub-step show is dirty, which people who listen to dub-step think is a good thing. In any case, in the taste there is plenty of hop bitterness and more earth. I didnít quite get the almost smoke, but I got some of that tasty dirt and it was good. A unique beer worth drinking by one and all.
