Great IIPA, nice strong hops, can at times feel a bit too raisiny or fruity but that’s rare. Overall I’d highly recommend this brew. Just take it slow because they can creep up on you fast

Kavu (5495) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 16, 2018
UPDATED: APR 16, 2018 0,4l on tap @ Gott's Roadside. Pours clear amber with a medium creamy head. Aroma is sweet malts with some fruits. Flavor is sweet malts, fruits, alcohol, hops. Excellent.

Westy1130 (134) - New York, USA - APR 15, 2018
Golden copper with creamy/frothy head. Malty sweet aroma, with pine and citrus notes. Floral, herbal, piny and citrus taste, but predominantly sweet malts with a bready, biscuity texture. Not necessarily a beer that hardcore hopheads would praise; however it is extremely well balanced and refreshingly smooth.

Cajun (560) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - MAR 28, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2018 Bottle - Pours a filtered amber, foamy head. Toasted bread/fermented bread, fruit medley, grapes, dank, citrus, floral, deliciously palatable, banana, yeasty, sourdough. Really good.

tompete (380) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2018
Pours crystal clear brownish gold with a very long lasting off white head. Aroma is light and grainy. Flavour is also light but nicely bitter and very warm. Finish is slightly bitter.

12 oz bottle at the Cozy. Can't believe I haven't rated this yet, but honestly, it's been years since I remember having this last. Unusually sweet malt aroma. Almost banana like. Flavor is a sweet malt as well. Insanely rich. Caramel malts, little hop profile to go off of. Or at least it's buried from the malt profile. Harsh IPA overall, and I feel like it always has been. Surprised this is so highly rated. Added to a retry list.

Banksiz (166) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 28, 2018
Nose is mainly pale malt, some honey-resiny notes and a touch of ripe banana. Slick,oily mouth feel. Medium sweetness, nice hop flavors and a backbone of bitterness. Long hoppy finish, some saltiness. A terrific Imperial.

markas101 (2579) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2018
Tap, Red Rock BBQ, Ypsilanti, MI. Copper appearance, tropical spice aroma. Mild flavour. Apricot and white pepper. Long slight resin finish.

Not the hop bomb I expected. Very good however- huge malt that provides balance. Even at 9% it doesn’t overwhelm. Very very good

airspi (12) - GREECE - JAN 4, 2018
nice head,great aroma huge pine and tropical fruit and full body with soft carbonation

BeerdedDave (2133) - Beckley, USA - JAN 1, 2018
clear amber color; nice, citrusy, piney hop aroma with a bit of caramel malt; medium bodied caramel malt base with a lot of piney, citrusy hops
