brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Pours a hazy burnt orange color with a two finger off white head. Head dissipates slowly and leaves a blanket of lacing. Lots of carbonation coming off the glass. Smells of tons of grapefruit, blood oranges, floral, grape, raspberries? A wine-like smell. Little bit of breadiness and carmel coming through after the initial bitter fruits smell. A musty, earthy smell as well. This beer is almost a year old and the amarillo hop presence on the nose has still not gone away. Taste starts with a moderate hop presence that brings grapefruit, orange, grape, maybe some passionfruit. Leaves you wanting more on the front. Then get a nice dose of breadiness along with some carmel sweetness from the malts. Then comes back with more grapefruit, grape, orange, grass. Decent bitterness, but almost get a watered down sensation on the finish, as well as some booze. Get a good amount of sweetness on the finish as well. Low full body with a sticky and creamy mouthfeel. There is something definitely missing here. The age unfortunately showed and took away from the hop bite. Some IPAs from overseas can really be great, but the high price combined with the lack of freshness is really starting to push me away. A fresher bottle could change my mind, but there is just something lacking here.

13/20 unusual beer, variety of tastes. Slightly too bitter and had a dank taste with the tasty dense Imperial IPA

john44 (2669) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2017
Bottle. Bottled July 2008; Drank Mar 2009 - Gold in colour with Reddish tinge. Mega-hoppy (piney, resinous, oily hops). Very fruity (very grapefruity and orange citrus; peel). Spicy (peppery) & Yeasty (lots of sediment). Malty (buttery caramel & toffee). Bitter hoppy citrus-fruity throughout. Dry hoppy finish. Lovely beer! (2009-03)

basjansen14 (136) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2017
Mooi bier met een goud/oranje achtige kleur. Aroma van fruitige hop, wat wiet, zoete mout. Smaak is: fruitige hop, zoet, niet en een lekker bittere afdronk.

jamaty (2041) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 14, 2017
Anaranjada nebulosa de no mucha dspuma, duradera. Aroma a lpulos y ctricos, limn. Notas de mango. En boca es deliciosa y equlibrada. Rica malta acaramelada y excelente sabor frutal, ctrico y tropical. Melosa en el trago, de amargor marcado sin ser exagerado. Una gran imperial IPA.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2016 Na kranie w Arendsnest Amsterdam (jako Amarillo): Piwo dosc klarowne w kolorze bursztynowym z niezbyt obfita ale gesta drobnopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie slodkie dojrzale owoce, karmel i nuty zywiczne. W smaku polslodkie z tepa i troche zalegajaca goryczka. Wysycenie na srednim poziomie. Tresciwe piwo ma sporo ciala, pije sie troche jak likier alkoholowy.
