miguelblanco (13) - Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Pours an amber clear golden hue with a short one-finger head that dissipates quickly leaving behind a delicate lacing. I caught some of the alcohol on the nose, but its just a real hoppy grassy aroma that meets well with the taste and mouthfeel. Its all very typical...archetypical if you will. This is the model Imperial IPA - variants from this can be very good, but in the Imperial IPA world, this should likely serve as the model. The robust hop punch in the flavor gives way to some heat and a bit of a residual bitterness that you might expect from this brew. Mouthfeel is crisp, clean, and has a glorious lingering finish. Im a fan.

Gold and light orange with a creamy white head. Caramel malt is heavier with just enough citrus and pine hops to cut the sweetness. Balanced but not as fantastic as everyone makes it out to be.

What a great beer! Not the beer that the 120 is but probably the top readily available IPA!

triplehopped (65) - - NOV 26, 2016
Pours a clear amber with an small/medium, white head. Pleasant citrus aroma, particularly grapefruit. Taste is medium bitter, lightly sweet. Medium bodied with an oily texture; average carbonation. The finish is relatively clean with a lingering, though pleasant, bitterness. Overall, a high quality IPA; one of the best I have tasted. Packed with great hop flavor and aroma, it is surprisingly mild in its bitterness to provide a surprising and satisfying tasting experience.
