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!

Nose, palate, and finish of "menthol and bandaids". NOT what I would expect from an IIPA.

JPDIPSO (5124) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Murky, light umber color with a smaller covering of big taupe bubbles. Lightly fruity aroma. Hints of fruit wine and floral hops. Earthy, fruity flavors with light strawberries and tart cranberries. Reminds me of a traditional old ale with a bit more hops. Finish gains some malt, but still a bit “off” with the tartness. 3/10

MrHangover (3309) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Pours a murky brown beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma of faint hops, light caramel and some grassy notes. Hops have faded a bit. Flavor is very thin, light bitterness and has low carbonation. Not the best IIPA.
