Draft. A hazy light golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has thick notes of hops lending it notes of citrus fruits and spices. The flavor is sweet with a thick malt profile. Nice that it is so pale and yet with such a strong body. The alcohol tickles the tongue and warms in the throat.

On tap. Slightly hazy yellow with a white head. Very malty nose with a whiff of yeast. Quite full-bodied, lots of malt, fruit and some yeast. Somewhat astringent and alcoholic finish. 080709 bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Draft. Light amber beer with a whitish head. Light malt and light grapefruit aroma - aroma not very strong. Caramel, grapefruit, and light pine flavor with light tropical/summer fruits. Medium-plus bodied. Good bitterness. Caramel and grapefruit lingers with light summer/tropical fruit. yespr (47567) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2009
From tap at the brewpub. Pours almost clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Light fruity hops aroma. Flavour is sweet andfruity hoppy. Light warming spiced sensation. Bitter and fruity flavoured finish. nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Pour from the tap in a small 10 oz. glass. Golden in color with a small white head. Smells of sweet citrus and some bitter hops. Medium plus body with some honey like qualities and good strong bitterness. Alcohol present but not over powering. Easy to drink. Finish is a bit on the sweeter side. Very tasty.

Clear gold/yellow pour, white head. Floral flavors, grain, pine, citrus, light fruit, honey, and a hint of spice. Moderately bitter. sebletitje (10293) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2009
Sampler at Breakwater.
Pours golden, thick white head, with lasting head.
Aroma, piney hops
Taste, superbly hoppy, pine, light fruits, with light bitter finish and a tad spices.
Love the use of hops in DIPA and the hops are there but just ruining the whole palate.
@ 9.4% this was easy to drink and amazingly tasty. steview (1088) - Petaluma, California, USA - APR 24, 2009
UPDATED: APR 25, 2009 definitely not what I would expect for an Imperial version of a Pale: cloudy gold-yellow body with average white head and little lacing; lots of floral, sweeter than expected, yeasty, ... the hops are really hiding in this one or really not there, along with the alcohol, but the alcohol is definitely there; good, but not great--maybe if it was re-branded into something else or at least more hop-centric? alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 19, 2009
On tap at Breakwater. A bit paler than expected; more yellowish/gold than anything. Aroma was yeaty anf floral. Flavor was better. Alot of floral, yeast, and grapefruit with some sweet malt and honey. Very nice. wetherel (1888) - Cupertino, California, USA - APR 2, 2009
New beer on tap at the brewpub served in a short pint glass (10ozish). Yellow color. Yeasty aroma. Low hop bitterness. Reasonably easy to drink.
