Double dry hopped version at Avery tap takeover at Churchkey. Tap into a snifter showing lightly filtered orange with a thin white finger of foam.
The nose shows rich pineapple.
The palate is moderately carbonated and light bodied. Pineapple forward with a light zestiness and moderate bitterness on the finish. Bule (2164) - California, USA - SEP 3, 2016
22oz bottle pours a slightly hazy pale brown color with a bit of head. Thick maltiness. English style hops that balance the malt sweetness well.

Very clear, amber color. Aroma is hoppy and you can tell the malty aroma ... When tasting it i could tell the sweetness, very obvious sweetness. Then the bitterness comes. Well balanced. moderate dry finish. Nice! Dal9000 (633) - Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2016
At Whiskey Barrel. Pours cloudy yellow. Creamy mouthfeel with a orange floral thick middle and a long lingering tang.

Huge Titan of a beer that favors the malts over the hops. Flavor mostly of sweet malts with piney and bitter hops in the background. Thick mouthfeel. Intense sipper type of beer. Not my style. Would buy Ruinten over this to get more brightness from the hops. WBA.

Pours a golden color with lots of head. Not generally a fan of IPAs but this imperial pale ale was not bad at all. VinegarStroke (426) - Napa, California, USA - JUL 19, 2016
22oz: Bloody good beer. Great appearance. Almost copper hue. Wonderful balance of both hops and malt however there is a Sh/t load of both. Rich with moderate to high bitterness.

Growler purchased at O’Darbys. Lotsa malt in aroma. Amber with a bit of lacing. Big hops - mostly piney and herbal, with sweet malt and honey with a bit of alcohol in back. Nice drinkability. A great IIPA. Mark_Eck (1949) - - JUL 12, 2016
Draft. Pours a dark orangish color. Aroma and taste are citrus, grapefruit, and a sweet backbone. jsporrer (1028) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Pours a hazy dark amber with a medium head of off white foam. Medium thick syrupy body with lots of lacing. Slight aroma of sweet citrus and malts. Taste is very malt forward with a touch of bitterness. Silky smooth and hides the alcohol well. Not as well balanced as I expected.Feels more like an old ale or Barley Wine than a DIPA. Still fairly enjoyable.
