COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amarillo, Centennial, Columbus and Simcoe hops unite to produce an immensely floral, botanical nose and a veritable explosion of citrus and pine on the palate. With an even more obscene hop overload than our infamous Idiot IPA, its an India Pale Ale truly deserving of its imperial crown.

Tortman18 (174) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a small, frothy white head. A moderate amount of lacing. Nose has a lot of resin, citrus and tropical fruits with a pleasant spiciness. Mouth is delicious. A lot of grapefruit and pineapple with caramel and some creamy malts. A lot of bitterness that lingers for a bit, but its not overpowering. Smooth finish.

onceblind (8925) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2017
Slightly hazy golden with a thin sticky ivory head. Brisk hoppy nose thats resiny and piney and floral and a bit earthy and boozy. Flavor is strong and pale malty with a big floral and gently piney bitterness with a bit of citrus pith and a slightly boozy malty finish. Pretty nice and full.

maekchu (3764) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 22, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Big, substantial hop nose, with citrus, peach bomb, grass, and grapefruit. Hazy light orange/amber color. Very citrusy initial, caramel, alcohol presence, fruity sweetness, but finishes fairly dry. Medium-heavy body and very pleasant on the tongue. Super-hopped stuff, but doesnt offend the palate. Nice blend and balance. Great!

Dorwart (2578) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Thin bright white head of fine bubbles. Nicely balanced hops and malts aroma. Some pineaple, spruce, white pepper and bready malts. Color is medium gold. Good balance in the flavor too. More bready malts, spicy hops, lemon and some dry grass. Decent bitterness in the flavor and lingers for a little while. Light alcohol presence and warming. Clean finish. A very good IIPA.

lello4ever (918) - ITALY - JUL 16, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2016 Bionda limpida, schiuma molto grossolana bianca. Aroma ottimo e invitante, floreale e fruttato. Buona al palato con ingresso maltato, frutta esotica, un bel bouquet di sapori di pino e appena agrumati, solo il finale appena amaro. Carbonazione non elevata. Dipa eccellente.

jflopsu (1527) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 26, 2016
Pours a clear gold. Has a very faint floral hop aroma. Taste is very light for a double IPA - faint floral hops, caramel and some malts and fruits. Sweet aftertaste with some bitter notes, but not impressed.

DSG (13906) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 24, 2016
Bottle shared at a tasting at Alexey & Raphaelas place. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of stale hops, a bit piney and citric. Flavor has a bit of sweetish malt, and lots of bitter hops, piney, citric, and a bit stale. Medium-bodied. Could be fresher, but still quite nice.

On draft at Sharp Edge Brasserie. Poured clear orange with thin head, thick lace. Citrus, grassy notes. Relatively smooth. Solid, yet unspectacular.

pablo951 (663) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2016
Had this on tap at Kaseys. Pours a solid orange clear hue, with a thin white head and even lacing. The aroma is of a smooth mango and the taste belies this double IPA, smooth and citrusy.
