Super hazy perfect copper coloured body with an orange glow and a thick, two centimetre tall fluffy tan head - very nice looking beer. Aroma of citrus, cascade hops, alcohol, pine, sugars and a very nice tropical fruit flavour. Full-bodied; Deep rich malty flavour at first with a ton of bright citrus and piney hops and a lot of alcohol that shows through immediately. Fruits dominate the finish with a lot of sugars, a decent amount of malt, a ton of hops and a few tons of alcohol - very strong in the finish. Overall, a nice Imperial IPA, perhaps a bit too strong in alcohol and too big of a bottle, but a nicely done beer, that if you like the style - you’ll like this one. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Total Wine in Tustin, California on 06-December-2011 for US$6.29 sampled at home in Washington on 13-May-2012. _angst_ (5008) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2012

Hazy amber with a small off-white head. Lots of malt and lots of alcohol in the aroma, along with peach and pine hops. Sweet malty flavour with vanilla notes. Some peach hop character, some alcohol, and a quite bitter finish sebletitje (10293) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 9, 2012

Pours a deep amber colour, slightly hazy with a cream tan head. Aroma is of caramel malt, brown sugar, muted citrus fruits, and a mild hop undertone. Taste is sweet up front and fairly bitter toward the finish, the bitterness lingers long after the sip as well. Creamy on the palate, medium to full body, lively carbonation. Overall a really nice double IPA. sloth (2936) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2012
Medium sized off white head with good retention and lace that hangs. Lightly hazy amber/orange hued brew. Nice fruity nose, grapefruit/citrus with some lightly sweet malts, caramel. Body is medium, lil chewy with a soft carbonation, lil creamy and resiny. Nice balance of malts and hops. Malts lightly sweet, caramel and the hops are juicy with notes of pine and melon, nicely citrusy and a hint earthy. Finish could of been a bit more bitter but thats just me.Almost Dry, lasting finish and incredibly quaffable @ almost 10% ABV.! Received in trade from IrishBoy .
