I do not ordinarily drink a double India pale ale because I simply do not care for the high alcohol or extreme hops bitterness. This beer is drinkable although I would only have her have one in a night. I think this beer is great for sipping it's very tasty ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - Dry on the palate, feels "thick" as well. Not as much bitterness on this imperial IPA as I would have expected. Nothing that sticks out to me in terms of flavor on this beer but to my untrained palate I do get some fruit flavors. Decent beer.

ZacM612 (678) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Draft at BP in San Diego. Amber color with lacing head. Floral aroma. Strong malty flavor balances well with the hoppy, slightly bitter finish.

hershiser2 (2800) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2016
$2.80 bottle from Wine Warehouse. Pours slightly hazy orange with a small white head. Luscious orange aroma, slightly candied but its not bothering me. Flavor is a strong orange peel, heavy malts, syrupy. Is not my favorite.

Maybe I got an old batch but it didn't blow me away. Super malty and super boozy.

HuskerTan (2080) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JUL 14, 2016
Bottle. A- Pine, citrus, malty, alcohol. A- Burnt orange color, clear liquid, off white head. T- Pine, bitter, burnt caramel, malty. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- Decided to try the watermelon version of this first thinking Ill go from worst to best. Somehow I think I did it backwards. This seemed actually worse. Decent aroma but insanely full of bitter pine and malty caramel. Just too much.

minihame2 (592) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2016
Hazy brown colour, some white lacing. Slightly malty aroma with a hint of fruit: mango and citrus. Strong, bitter taste, lingering dry finish, prevalent alcohol taste as well. Tingly carbonation, overall quite light-bodied. Ok for the style, but not that great.

MetalNHopHead (1841) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUL 9, 2016
This is a pure example of the San Diego (Imperial) IPA. Hop-forward, piney, bitter, and resinous. Amber-orange pour - just a bit of haze. Juicy tropical fruit and pine needles in the flavor profile. Herbaceous with some subtle nectar sweetness. Definitely heavy on the hops, but theres a big malt body holding them up. Beautifully done. Pretty close to perfect for me.
