Bottle in Seattle. Picked this up in Chicago. Creamy gray foam. hazed copper with orange highlights. Surprising but nice toasty character. Caramel, alc note, some chalky aftertaste. Rich, tasty. Fruity wood, smooth bittering with a little burn on finish. nice.

22 oz bottle poured, shared by luttonm. Thanks! Pours a hazy copper orange color with a rocky head. Toasty malt aroma with a clear sweet side to it. Bready malt, orange fruit bite, middle to high bitterness, some dryness as well. Oak for sure. Hop bitter, warming finish. Very nice imperial here.

Sdaniel90 (1078) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUN 17, 2016
Bottle, 65cl. Sparkling orange with visible sediment and a creamy offwhite head. Aromas of fruity hops, caramel, pine. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Rich and smooth. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitterness. Delicious roasted and hoppy character into an exquisite astringent finish. Magnificent.

Percy0103 (764) - MEXICO - JUN 17, 2016
Bottle, 650ml. A clear amber beer with a big head and some sediments. Aroma is of citric hops, malt, floral notes and aromatic wood. Medium bodied, with some carbonation and a bitter finish. A great balance between the malt and the hops; an Imperial IPA with a strong English character.

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2016
Aroma - caramel, oak, and bountiful pine hops, with subtle floral hops. Appearance - the body is a hazy orange, with a 2+" off-white head. Great foamy lacing. Taste - has a rich mix of caramel malt. An assault of hops ranging from resin, floral, spruce, and citrus hops that come off mostly as grapefruit in nature. There is also an oak and grain quality. Palate - body is medium, texture has a slight oil, the carbonation is average, finish is bitter.

mambossa (336) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Enjoyed on a full moon. Pours an iced tea rich copper gold. Soapy, inconsistent lacing. Nose leads with toasted caramel malt, peppery and oozing ripe stonefruit, a dash of pine resin, a hint of baking spice from the oak. Flavor starts off on the sweeter side, beefy and syrupy malt backbone of toasty honey and molasses, a richly drippy ripe apricot and peach, some nice white flower essences happening. Very sticky. Keeps your mouth smacking away at the residual sugar. Dense, ripe, toasty, with the oak lending a nice baking spice, subtle coffee, vanilla, and bright new wood to the equation. A little dense and sweet for me, but has a great forceful bitter bite as the Floyds always make sure of. Worth trying.

justsayswell (271) - Kansas City, Kansas, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Bready malt, herbal and floral hops, and alcohol heat in the nose. Medium bodied and a bit sticky, though the alcohol is hidden well. Slightly sweet, almost syrupy malt backbone. Herbal hops, plum, toffee, a little toasted oak. A pleasantly drinkable IIPA.
