Jamesthebrit (417) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 6, 2013
Bottle with drink by date of sometime in 2014 so Im good. A: Pours a bold amber. Head has good retention. S: Smells like any other IPA. Floral, a bit more malty than others I suppose. T: Hops are out of control when they first hit. Then a hint of malt but it gets cut down by more hops. The problem here is the hops are very dull and dry. They linger too long and cut through the other flavors so much that there is little play left. Finish has a pretty intense alcohol bite. P: As detailed in the taste, the hops just linger around too much. Palate is super aggressive. . Overall this beer was actually pretty weak. Its just so unbalanced. I think back to a certain triple IPA I had that did not leave me with the same notion that the hops are out of control. Theyre just so dull on the palate that they linger and I cant stop thinking about them. I wonder if I just got a bad batch given the generally high rating of this one. Ill stick to the calico amber... that was killer!

Golden rich coloured beer, small head, lots of grassy flavour. Really oily and creamy at the same time, great mouthfeel. Huge beer, dry and delicious.

355ml bottle. Pours gold with a nice head. Aroma is sweet caramel and bitter apple. Taste is strong caramel, big peach and apple. Bitterness and sweetness are both huge, but quite nicely balanced. Quite thick and oily. Nice.

EKGoldings (649) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2016
On tap, Sharkeys Radford. Dark amber, hazy, good head for the abv. Complex, fruity taste, great body, refreshing bitter aftertaste. One of the better beers Ive had in a while.

Rei00 (95) - CHILE - JAN 17, 2017
Una Imperial IPA de color ámbar anaranjado, baja carbonatacion y media espuma. En su aroma priman los frutos de verano (durazno, Damasco) con toques cítricos suaves. Su sabor conserva la fuerza del lúpulo y su distintivo amargor, con matices cítricos de Pomelo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour at Vesta in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is mild citrus, mild pine resin, malts. Taste is mild pine marmalade with some citrus peels. Great malty backbone and not overwhelmingly hoppy. A very drinkable IIPA.

teamsale (228) - Washington, USA - DEC 6, 2016
Bomber pours a clear copper with a one finger eggshell head and great lacing. Aroma is a wonderful sweet fruit and light hop with a small amount of catpiss. Flavor is very interesting, sharp sweet fruit up front, alcohol in the middle, nice mild to medium bitterness on the finish, malty aftertaste. Really good.
