Sampled at a tasting. Very dark brown pour with a tan head. Smells of citrus hops, grapefruit. Tastes like malt sugars, honey, citrus and caramel. Bitter-sweet aftertaste. ciocanelu (2855) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 23, 2016
Mahogany color with white head. Aroma has a heavy malt backbone with earthy and piney hops. Taste starts hoppy with intense bitterness and a solid malt backbone. Heavy body with medium carbonation. Not bad but it’s very old school and generic. Bonnie628 (50) - Tustin, California, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Got o few months back at the tap room downtown Fullerton. Not a typical imperial IPA at all. It poured a little darker than the light orange IPAs. Had a great balanced caramel and pine hop aroma. Flavor of more malty than usual xxipas. Definitely had strong pine like northwestern hops. Different for sure and in a good way. Very impressed.

Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours clear, rich gold with a creamy, off-white head. Lots of fairly dank hops in the aroma, some melon, grapefruit. Medium sweet falvour with loads more dank hop character, big on the melon, oily pine, grapefruit, some sweet pale bread. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Moderately sweet and resinous on the finish, with mellow pine spice, sticky melon and papaya, more grapefruit. Very tasty. Quite rich, but still highly drinkable. madmitch76 (25344) - , Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2015

Hazy deep amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Decent carbonation. Creamy malts. light but sweetish. Good hops - crisp orange and smooth pine. A little resin. Smooth spicy sweet finish. Sound and drinkable.
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark copper amber colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of heavy piney hops, citrus, sweetness and biscuit. Heavy flavour of huge piney bitterness, caramel sweetness, menthol, grapefruit and deep jammy fruitiness. Full bodied. Extreme. Despite being heavy the drinkability remains good. tiong (7516) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2015

Bottled 08/28/15 - Pours copper orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of caramely malts, toffee, loads of grass, pine, resin and herbal notes. Taste is malty, sweet, heavy and caramely with loads of toffee, grassy hops, herbal notes, pine and resin. Finish is sweetish, slightly stuffy, malty and hoppy with massive amounts of pine, resin and herbal grassy notes. Quite malty and sweet, old school west coast DIPA.
I’ll start off saying this isn’t super fresh, so take this with a grain of salt. Nose of sweet, slightly burnt caramel malts, some citrus, pine, and danker hops. Taste follows, with bitter, slightly soapy hop finish. More barley wine at this point than DIPA. Booze is well hidden.
