jgb9348 (6779) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2018
Deep, very hazy orange and copper coloured body with a nice two to three centimetre tall just off-white head that fades pretty quickly to just about nothing. Aroma of floral and piney notes with some earth, a bit of light citrus and mostly a light alcohol and malt scent with the noticeable amarillo hop bite in the nose. Medium to Full-bodied; Assertive herbal and grassy flavours with quite a bit of pine and alcohol noticeable on the tail end with a supportive malt quality and a dose of grain noticeable at the end as well. Aftertaste shows some citrus and lighter herbal notes, but this is all about the deeper and more floral, grassy and pungent hop bitterness towards the end. Overall, a decent and relatively well-balanced Imperial IPA that showcases the Amarillo hop, which I'm not a tremendous fan of, but this beer is a good representation of that, which I can appreciate. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Manassas, Virginia on 31-January-2018 for US$3,41 sampled at home in Washington just nineteen days later on 19-February-2018.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2018 Good aroma... Hops, floral, hint of pepper.. tastes crisp clean .. it's a solid IPA Panzuriel (2496) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2017
Appearance: Median amber. Slightly hazy. Firm head of small white bubbles.
Nose: Citrus with some tropical fruit and maybe a smidge of herbal hops.
Taste: Melon, citrus and pine. Trending a bit resinous and grassy. Decent bitters throughout
Body: medium with good carbonation.
Parting thoughts: Solid, above average IPA from champion. No surprise.

Taste is way too chemical for a nice craftbeer, it seems some toxic got lost in the water supply Braudog (7016) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2017
Can. Pour with a thin body, little-to-no head. It also drinks with a surprisingly slim mouthfeel. But this has a nice, dry, cloying, earthen hoppy character. Hides its 9% quite well. (#6824, 11/6/2017)

Can at BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Fruity and malty aroma with orange and some pine resin. Flavour is above moderate sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium. Not a great IIPA, but still a fine and easy hoppy citrussy beer. Not bad. thegreenrooster (4741) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 4, 2017
Pour is a hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma is a fruity and floral hop. Flavor is a melon hop with a little honey malt sweetness. A little sweetness and a little bitterness but just enough hop characteristics to make this palatable. Decent beer but not a huge hop to make this more than a above par DIPA.

Can @ home shared with Inoven and TomHendriksen. Clear golden color, decent sized white to off-white head. Smell and taste malts, hops, resinous and piney and resinous and piney bitter. Medium body and decent carbonation. Ok beer. TomHendriksen (1196) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2017
Blik gedeeld door Benzai, geprobeerd met Inoven. Het is een helder geel bier met een dunne witte schuimkraag. Het heeft een hoppige dennenachtige geur. De smaak is vol, hoppig en dennenachtig. Erg lekker!
