Tap at Third Base. Pours fairly clear copper orange. Nice lacing. Nose is citrus. Taste is citrus and pine. Bitter pine aftertaste. koleminer20 (3599) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2014
On tap at Fraser's. The pour is a light copper, crystal clear works thin white head and some awesome lacing going on. The aroma is heavy citrus and pine with a strong malt undertone. The flavor is a bit lore malt oriented. There is a strong malt and piney resin presence. Very good and dry for a strong IPA. The mouth feel is a touch thin with a perfect amount of carbonation and a delightfully citrusy dominated aftertaste. Just a great IPA. This is an incredibly delicious beer!

On tap, served in a snifter. Bright, citrusy aromas. Plenty of hop flavor but not a palate wrecker by any stretch, well balanced and easy to drink. The 9% ABV is hidden well. ColovianTrader (464) - - MAY 2, 2014
Sweet fruit and caramel aroma. Light caramel, floral hops and grapefruit bitterness. Apple sweetness. Dry finish. Hints of lemon. obxdude10 (2324) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2014
A really nice double IPA! The Illinois pours a light copper color with a substantial off-white head. The head leaves a cascading, sticky lace around the edge of the glass. The nose is full of fruity hops, but balanced nicely with some caramel and bready malts. The body is perfectly drinkable, smooth and well-balanced. The only characteristic of this beer I don’t really care for the overly malty finish. I get a little too much rye-type of flavor toward the end of the flavors. Other than that, this impy IPA is a real winner!

Copper color with a medium head. Juicy aroma of orange and tangerine. Strong caramel and biscuity grain flavor. Strong bitterness. Full body. Light citrus and fruit from the hops coming through, but the base seems more barley wine than IIPA (not necessarily a bad thing). zizzybalubba (1870) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Sam’s Bottle Shop, Durham, NC. Hazy, rusty orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of tangerine and grapefruit with a generous toffee malt presence. The taste offers bitter, citrusy hops with sweet caramel and toffee malts that keep the taste from becoming grassy or piney. Bitterness does not linger very long. A very good DIPA.

The color is a slightly hazy orange with a medium off-white head, and the aroma blends citrus and floral hops with light malts. The taste is quite bitter, slightly sour, and a touch sweet; the palate fuses a thick texture, bitter finish, medium-full body, and an average carbonation.

A solid imperial IPA. Pours dark golden with an impressive head. Bitter-sweetness, hints of grapefruit and apricot.

pours a hazy peach with a lasting white head and some spotty lacing. Surprisingly malty aroma with notes of vanilla and stone fruit. taste has notes of vanilla, apricot, green apple and a hint of orange. finish is note overly pronounced but present and pleasant. a fine beer.
