35 cl bottle @ home. Pours amber with a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is hoppy with a lot of pine and some citrus as well as some sweet malt. Flavour follows the aroma quite well. RoyalFlushing (326) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle pours a copper with orange hues, large tan head, active carbonation, and excellent lacing. Aroma is big pine and orange zest with hints of grapefruit, grass, and peach. Taste is similar with huge piney hop bitterness and grapefruit upfront balanced by citrus and caramel malt on the finish. Good mouthfeel with citrus flavor and palatable bitterness lingering. Happy to say that my palate was challenged rather than wrecked. Truly enjoyable Imperial IPA. Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2012
Hazy golden with a medium white head. Very nice beer with a lot of hops that bring apricots, tropical fruits and piney notes. Also a light tobacco touch that I often find when the hops re fresh. There is also a good malty body that bring some sweetness and a very refreshing long lasting bitterness. Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JUL 23, 2012
12oz. bottle. Strongly hoppy, fruity, citric and malty aroma, with notes of brown sugar, doughy bread, pine, grapefruit, pineapple, earthiness (musky?), pepper and mild hop spice. Lightly hazy medium orange-amber color with a fine, lasting head and intricate lacing. Flavor is indeed hugely hoppy but there is plenty of malt here as well, with toasty caramel and toffeeish character amidst the admittedly off the charts hop flavor and bitterness. Plenty of citrus, pine and green, leafy herbal tones that seem to peak at the finish, as well as a lightly drying touch of alcohol. Slick, full, warming and finely effervescent mouthfeel with a hugely full body. I like this. thewolf (12629) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2012

Pours clear amber with a big, creamy, light off-white head. Aroma has plenty of hops, fruity, citrus, pine, grapefruit, peach. Lovely power to it. Medium to low carbonation, great fat and oily mouthfeel. Flavour is bitter, fairly fresh hoppy, again grapefruit, pine and peach. Warming viniousness, lingering quite bitter finish. Nice, even if I’d have liked the carbonation upped a bit.
22-JUL-2012, bottle @home, from "Fish & Beer".
Dark golden and orange with lasting, lacing, tan head.
Very hoppy with notes of grape fruit and pine. On the earthy side...
...but even fruity notes like apricot.
Quite creamy. Not all that alcoholic for a 9,5% brew.

Bottle, pours golden with medium off white head. Aroma is loads of grapefruit, some pine, some sweet peach and some sweet caramel. Taste is also loads of bitter grapefruit, some pine, some peach and tropical fruits and some sweet malts. Very bitter, medium sweetness, medium mouthfeel.
Nice! Arve_Christian (5175) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2012
On bottle at Olympen.
Dark golden color, some foam.
Intense hoppy aromas - very piney.
Full body & high complexity.
High viscosity. Sweetness , with some bitterness.
Enjoyable & powerful- but a bit to sweet for my taste
