Poured from bottle into tulip a orange tinged copper. A dissipating white head that turned lumpy and went to sides of glass, some lace. Malts,cereals, hay and some citrus. Malty in the taste also with a light citrus. I think the alcohol was too strong in the taste and in the finish. Not what I was expecting.

The aroma is malty and hoppy. Hints of sweetness and some citrus hops. Pours a golden orange with big white head mostly lasting, slightly cloudy and excellent lacing. The taste is a medium bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. Very Good!!

Pours light golden and translucent with a white head. Tastes of sweet hops and a little alcohol with a moderately bitter finish. It’s clear, yet medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. A big, savory IPA.

This is just a bit too sweet, which in turn let’s the alcohol come through. Not a favorite of the style for me.

3.5
willisread (3395) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 27, 2017
Bottle from J’s. Pours a clear, deep gold with a small finger of head that dissipates almost instantly. Oranges, malt and caramel dominate the nose. Light on the palate, citrus and orange hardcandy. Caramel and booze. Finish is a little hot.

Big aroma over a small white head. Taste is bursting with tropical flavor. Nice long finish. Very drinkable at 9%. Very good but not quite great.

obguthr (6443) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2016
Overripe orange, lemongrass, and ash nose, not strong. Cloudy orange, thick sticky yellow head. Sweet triple sec, vegetal, tangerine. Full body, easy carbonation, warm. A bit cloying.

bigguns22 (798) - Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2016
This is a great IPA. Pour is cloudy amber with a small head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy with lite earth tones. A creamy beer hops to go around and a earthy but sweet finish that leaves you a little bitter !

Steverus0 (263) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Great looking, smelling, and tasting brew. In short, this is ideal for fans of Dogfish Head's seminal 90 Minute IPA but with a bent towards more tropical than resinous hops. Great for a hot summer afternoon ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really good beer. A great taste for an imperial IPA. Hoppy and citrus on the finish. Pours nice.
