Note 30/09/2014. 18% abv. Listigovers (1419) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2017
Aroma: fresh hop, liqueur-spicy, sherry, citrus. Taste: liquor with noticeable peppery bitterness, candied fruit, sherry, citrus. Awesome.
Almost smelled like a gin when I opened the bottle. Smells sweet, juniper, lots of hop oils, alcohol. Taste is sweet, barley wine, tons of oiliness from the hops, bitter but balanced with tons of malt, some phenolic smokiness. Very nice beer, great depth, not what I expected. golden and endless white head. Lives up to reputation. 05barnold (52) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2017
Poured from the tap at the pub in DE. Holy shit this beer is good. Very little head. You can tell the high ABV from the smell alone. Would absolutely purchase and drink again.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2017 On draft at Craft Beer Cellar!
Aroma 6/10: sweet, maple, malty and very boozy aroma
Appearance 3/5: medium amber with small frothy head
Palate 3 /5: booze, booze, booze, with sticky resin mouthfeel
Taste 6/10: hits you hard in the face with malty sweetness. Eventually some pine flavors develop though I still taste maple-y sap.
Overall 14/20:For an imperial ipa sweetness is expected, though this takes it to another level. This reminds me more of a barleywine, without some of the complexity of barleywine. That's what takes this down a notch for me.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2017 It's got a lot of sugars to combine with its intense alcohol. The Hops and malts are subdued, but elegant. Would have again.

2017 Bottle. Beer very much different than 60 or 90 minute. As those two beers are much different also. Overpriced for what you are getting but probably worth trying once in your life? Aroma is pineapple and booze like. Thin fading head. Mouthfeel is thick. Flavor is strong booze some medicinal hop flavors and some tropical hop notes. But booze dominates everything. This bottle is about 4 months old. Maybe I should have tried it fresher. Thomas Creek Tripple IPA is more bitter in your face. This is more just booze and candied fruit and some medicinal properties.

Draft at Rogue. Aroma of caramel, booze and bitter citric hop. Taste has sweet caramel, booze, pine, glue and bitter hop. Expected more from this, it’s way too boozy. beerplace (2436) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 18, 2017
355ml bottle from Elizabeth Station shared with George on Greenpoint campground. Slightly hazy golden with a tan head. Aroma is slightly bready, candied citruses. Taste is similar, very boozy. Quite good. Ronritter (875) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 1, 2017
