Full Disclosure: This beer came to fruition because we saw a gap in our portfolio and we wanted to increase our market share. Sometimes the truth hurts. But most often, it’s damn refreshing. The Truth Imperial IPA--the latest addition to our year-round portfolio-is a hop bomb of some of the most distinct Pacific Northwest hops available today. Its sharp hop bitterness begins with huge pine notes on the nose, which evolve into bright citrus (think grapefruit) and subtle stone fruit flavors.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2013 12oz bottle. Nice aroma of mang, maybe peach. Beautiful, dense lacing. But the taste is lackluster: A mixture of thin grapefruit and thin mango which gives way to a chalky finish, that sticks in the mouth for a dusty long while. Pretty sub-average DIPA.

Color dorado anaranjado, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención, apariencia cremosa). Carbonatación media. Textura oleosa. Aroma muy resinoso, con cáscara de naranja, pomelo, pino, malta. Aroma fuerte pero muy apetecible. Sabor que sigue al aroma, frutal, con mucha resina y malta presente. Final resinoso de amargor medio. Postgusto resinoso. A medida que va atemperando se cuela algo de alcohol en aroma y sabor.

Pours clear, light gold, off white head. Aroma is grapefruit forward, fruity, some pine. Taste is pine, spruce, resin, some grapefruit, then a rush of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel, fairly smooth, slightly heavy. A hint of the alcohol. Pretty good.

Has a strong creamy nitro feel to it, with a bint of alcohol poking through. Thought it would be better.

PowY (758) - AUSTRIA - JUN 30, 2017
From bottle, bb 16.02.2018. Pours a hazy, dark, orange-golden with a small white head. Surprisingly mellowed aroma, lightly malty (bread) and lightly hoppy (citric fruits and pine). Medium body with a soft carbonation, a light to medium sweetness and a medium to heavy bitterness and some noticeable alcohol. The flavor is medium malty (some caramel, biscuit), but the bitter hoppiness is pretty dominating. Lightly fruity, peachy with some grapefruit, but soon overpowered by the bitterness. Dry bitter finish.

Smell of light fruity. Fruity and sweet taste. Okay bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth to a weak moment. Okay beer but bitter. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

AssKicker (496) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - MAY 31, 2017
Couleur légèrement ambrée, bien limpide, mousse légère et peu tenace. Nez caramel tout en douceur. En bouche cest loin dêtre violent. Carbo modérée, bonne rondeur, notes de résineux dominantes mais pas excessives avec une pointe de citronné, ou plutôt de peau dorange lorsquelle se réchauffe. Lamertume nest pas particulièrement puissante, contrairement à lalcool qui se bien sentir. Pas mauvaise mais globalement déçu quand même. Cest trop passe-partout à mon goût pour être une Imperial IPA digne de ce nom.

fkoolen (1216) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2017
Bottle at Cafe Frappe, Maastricht. Slightly cloudy golden, creamy white head. Grapefruit, citrus, resinous hop profile, sweet and grainy malty base. Good body, medium carbonation, oily.
