Rating #1409 - 25.12.2014 - 330mL Bottle #20 in the 2014 Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Pours a cloudy amber, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is spicy, earthy hops, mild berry sweetness, mild citrus. Taste is extremely hoppy, lots of piney, resinous notes, again subtle orange sweetness. Fairly balanced in terms of hop profile, and managing the ABV, this is a solid DIPA. raphabranco (11) - Tietê, BRAZIL - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle, 600ml bought in Brazil. Pours on copper cloudy and persistent. Beautiful golden amber color. On taste there is a large amount of aromatic and bitter hops, malt, caramel in an citric end. Alcohol in equilibrium. Definitely a great
beer! Edv1 (7) - BRAZIL - NOV 19, 2015 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2015 Era a melhor do plantel. Mas mudou, a despeito de que a própria cervejaria dizer que não. Paciência. Rolfarild (210) - NORWAY - NOV 6, 2015
Orange with a big head, sparse lacing. Aroma of hayloft, herbs and alcohol. Taste peaces, herb, caramell, citrus. Long fruity aftetaste. Low bitterness for an ipa. smcolw (617) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Large three-finger head that settles into a tight foam dome. Some streaky ring lace after every sip. The liquid is orange-amber with a mild chill haze.
Darker pale ale malt aroma. There’s some alcohol to the nose as well. Low floral hop nose.
This is a surprisingly smooth IPA. This leans to the malt for the style. There’s plenty alcohol warmth. The hop is spicy but not biting--this beer could stand to have a little bit more hop in it. Full bodied with a lower carbonation level.
I am surprised this is from Brazil as this is a very good DIPA.

Pours clear almost copper. Aroma is malty, not the hop I was expecting. Taste is malty sweet, has some bitterness, but not as much as I was expecting. Braudog (6791) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle. A Mexican IIPA. Ariba! This is a meaty beast, an opaque, muddy orange with robust foam topping. It’s earthen and full of flavor, with a plentiful mouthful of woodsy hop bitterness. (#6049, 10/15/2015) ruigo (3080) - PORTUGAL - SEP 29, 2015
50cl bottle. Clear dark copper colour with a frothy white head. Caramel, peaches, citrus, light pine and yeast in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is medium bitter with some peach and malt notes. Dry and bitter finish. Overall, a very good beer. Lagerboy (2221) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2015
310 ml undated bottle. Opaque dirty brown-ish orange, lotsa chunks, mostly lasting off-white foam. Pungent alcohol aroma, herbal citrus hop. Taste is bitter herbal citrus hop, quite boozy, leaner caramel malts. Average carbonation, medium-full bodied, aggressively hopped. Just drinkable.

Amber color, hazy liquid and nice head.
Strong hoppy aroma (Passion fruit and pineapple).
Taste is heavy bitter with some caramel notes (brazilian Rapadura).
Palate has a long dry finish.
Great Imperial IPA!!!
