COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Just like a gambler doubling down in Vegas so is this beer on the hops. The heavy handed additions of Magnum, Simcoe, and Chinook drives the hop charge over the top. Malt, being the counterpart in this beer, is built upon Pale, Crystal, Carapils, and Munich. All this combined creates a royal flush of a brew. If you dont LOVE hops, then dont even bother!

robertjm (866) - Albany, California, USA - OCT 22, 2016
(22oz. bottle) - Pours a huge white foam. Cloudy orange body. Big aroma of citrus and pine resin. Flavors of apricot with a tad bit of light caramel and orange. Bitterness lingers on the palate for a while. Thick mouth feel. Enjoyed it. But, probably wont be on my radar to go out of my way to buy it (It was 50% off at Safeway!!)

4s across the board! This one is fruity & bitter and lip smacking good. Although ABV is over 9, the alcohol is offset by the smooth malt and enormous amount of hops that its barely noticeable. Enjoy!

nerdboy19 (171) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - JAN 18, 2016
Very nice Imperial IPA. Lots of citrus, tropical fruits, mango aroma. High carbonated, medium bodied, no booze, drinkable. Great balance with bitter and sweet, the hoppy bitterness is strong but satisfying. Very good!
