3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a 12oz. Definitely has the character of an Imperial IPA, but not quite as big as others in the style, or even other styles. Good mid-palate but finish too strong. A little disappointing.
A very bitter beer without the complexity of many IPAs. Brings a heavy booze profile, but forgets the nuance that makes a good IPA tick. Not my favorite, though I like Harpoon generally. agl108 (1307) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2017
12 oz. aged bottle. Poured cloudy orange with fine sediment in suspension. Big caramel malt, pine resin. Too old to appreciate. rodenbach99 (4678) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2017
Portion dégustation à la brasserie. Une robe cuivrée avec un filet de mousse blanche. Un nez avec des houblons floraux, du pin, d’alcool et du caramel. Une bouche costaude avec du caramel et une touche d’alcool, de sucre et une amertume légèrement agressive. Agréable. Ron (4260) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Bottle. Pours a nearly clear amber color with a white head and a good amount of lacing. Aroma is mango and tropical fruits, with pine and citrus and floral hop qualities as well. The flavor is rather sweet, very malty, similar to the aroma. Aftertaste leaves a pleasant bitterness. bbbeer (905) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Amber/copper color with small off white head. Floral hops and malty aroma. Medium body, some carbonation and a little alcohol. Flavor is sweet up front, pretty malty, orange hops, off dry finish. Pretty good, balanced, not that complex.

12 oz bottle. Clear amber, tight tan head, nice lace. aroma is caramel malt, citrus, pine, resin, earth. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, backed by pine, citrus and earth. Flavor is malty up front, with caramel, and toast, and then the hops creep in. Orange, grapefruit, pine, resin. Finish is long and citrusy bitter. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a cloudy dark gold color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is full of hops and pine. The taste is a close match to the aroma. A really good IPA. HarryPlopper (57) - - MAR 25, 2016
Citrusy aroma. Dark orange and amber color, with very little head or lacing poured into a pint glass from a bottle. Bright citrusy taste comma with sweet notes. No bitter aftertaste and a very clean pallet. For an IPA, this is quite good. Seannpc (160) - - MAR 11, 2016
Clean aroma with citrus overtones. Golden color with no cloudiness. Malty start and slightly bitter finish
