This Imperial IPA has an assertive aroma of sticky, resinous Summit hops. A complex flavor profile includes notes of grapefruit, lemon peel, and spruce. Though the flavor focus is on hops, a trio of malts provides a balance to the beer, creating a delicious level of palatability. Hints of caramel, toffee, and freshly-baked biscuits are also apparent in the flavor profile.

Draft to taster at the Kalamazoo brewpub. Looks solid; a completely transparent deeper good with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes like a bittersweet malt bomb with notes of floral and citrus hops. Mouthfeel is medium full-bodied and slightly hot. Solid, but unbalanced.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2015 12 oz. bottle, sent from wilco (thanks Mike), pours a hazy golden with a large white head. Nose brings out hop resins, pine and a light caramely bready malt. Flavour is more or less the same, with resinous and piney hops, hop oils and lightly caramelized bready malt. Well-balanced and chewy. A really nice, drinkable IIPA.

Spicy almost some onion smell. Fresh so not bad. As fa as onin goes. Taste bitter some onion again and clean finish.

Bottle at a bar. This one came out of nowhere! Poured a golden slight cloudy colour with a white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, malts, citrus, slight end of resins, pines hops bitterness. Pretty enjoyable now in the sun

On tap at a crappy bar. Poured into a tall chalice into a bright golden color. Very clear and transparent. A sticky spotty lacing with a white smooth head. A slightly off aroma of sticky dank citrus hops. A thick coating sip of strong citrus hop flavors. Actually a the biggest flavor is a thick sticky strong honey. Not very bitter honestly. Just a potent citrus and moderate strong alcohol. Big honey overall citrus feel. Not horrible.

Tap. A clear golden pour. Aromas of citrus and flowery hops, orange, sweet malts, a touch of b.o. Sweet taste initially, but a medium to strong bitterness kicks in that lasts. Overly sweet, in my opinion. A bit syrupy/sticky. Medium+ bodied.

355 mL bottle. Beautiful looking beer. Clear golden with a big, fluffy, sticky white head. Fruity hops in the nose. A little on the mild side. The flavour is lovely, and more balanced than many others. Sweet citrus, resin and a little pine, with some honey from the malts. Bitterness is a touch light, and the alcohol is well hidden. A very drinkable IIPA.

I really wish there was a date on the bottle. Is this an 8 year old DIPA or a shitty DIPA or both? Buttery. Hoppy aroma but not in taste. Meh. Not retired. Not nutty. I’m confused.

Horribly unbalanced honey and caramel. Terrible harsh aftertaste of rotten booze. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Slightly hazy medium amber, thin rim head, no lace. A very still Ale. Nice aroma of malt and hops. Taste is flat malt that turns into hops, but has no life (maybe this one is kaput). Add to that the strong alcohol presence, and this moves to my "not recommended" file. Maybe some other time...
