Draught @ SBWF’12
Pours dark orange with a massive head. Aroma of herbal hops, grass, hints of weed. Taste is hoppy and herbal with hints of fruits and berries. Finish is sweet and malty with a lot of herbal spicy notes. Okay, a bit unbalanced.
Well crafted, top to bottom. A lush orange/caramel body with a solid, well laced off-white head. The nose features dank hops from the dry hopping, dried fruit, booze and bready malt. The dank hops continue in the taste profile. Rindy hops, caramel, dried sweet fruit, apricots and smooth sweet malt work well together. A balanced finish, rich but not sticky body and roasted malt aftertaste all work for me. commonmac (1263) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2017
Tap at the brewery with the whole crew. 12oz pour in a half hour glass. Deep amber and orange combine to make a pleasant copper color. Lacing and head are an off white. Aroma is dank and piney citrus. Taste is malty underneath but the hops are allowed to prosper and shine. Dank continues to be a theme with pine resin holding strong. Alcohol burn present. Safety in numbers lends me to believe more of these should be consumed. chinchill (5071) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2017
12 oz bottle in a lager glass.
Pours with a clear copper colored body topped by a modest size bone colored head that has excellent retention.
Indeed, it smells. No idea why this would be like a safety meeting. To me it suggests fresh citrus juice, some baked bread and dank hops. The flavor largely follows, but with more malt presence, medium bitterness rather than being sweet, and a lower ABV than the aroma suggests.
Overall: excellent DIPA. MarkSachon (1028) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2017
Draft at the Double-Wide Grill in Pittsburgh. This was good but not as great for me as the ratings tend to believe. Like most IPA beers these days it was probably overdone on many accounts. randy1969 (53) - Marengo, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2017
From the tap at IRON Restaurant in Grand Rapids. Hazy orange color, white head. Herbal aroma, I didn’t catch any weed smell. Hoppy flavor and a massive bitterness in the finish

Bottle poured a clear amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of caramel, earthiness, pine and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of caramel, earthiness and light pine with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish. oobawa (1492) - Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2017
Not sure how this beer gets its smoky backbone, but I sure do like it. Big, juicy resinous hops take the forefront, pine and grapefruit and weed on top of a big sticky caramel bun with an unexpected dose of char on the finish. Dry and bitter, with a dank green nose and no trace of the 9% ABV. Nice DIPA. decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2017
Orange pour with tan head. Aroma is bready malt and resiny hops. Flavor is sweet malt and resiny hops. Medium body with full bitter Shag (3026) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 22, 2017
Copper color with a beige head. The aroma contains some caramel, herbal notes, toffee, and citrus. The flavor is Arrogant Bastard-ish with some caramel. toffee, citrus, and chocolate. This is much more of a strong ale than an Impy IPA. . Overall well balanced but a little more malty than bitter. Its good FraekkeFyr87 (581) - - FEB 6, 2017
The aroma is full of hops, caramel malt, barley, citrus, pine and dried fruits. The color is dark red, caramel-like. The head is minimal and yellowish frothy. The taste is full of hops, caramel malt, dried fruits, pine, citrus, lemon zest and elderflower. Not impressing at all!
