COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An aggressively hopped and higher gravity version of our Kashmir IPA. Five different hop varieties added at seven different times in the brew kettle, hopback, whirlpool and fermenter add to its complexity. This Imperial IPA also differs from our traditional Kashmir IPA with the addition of over fifty pounds of dry hops, adding a spicy nose. Over two hundred pounds of hops were used in this limited fifty barrel batch. The robust, malty and complex hop flavors and aromas are best enjoyed with an extremely stiff upper lip.

Bottle in trade from ROBORB. Thanks! Pours a nice rich amber color with a medium offwhite head. Smell is aged hops and malt with a hint of spicy hops. Taste is still lightly hoppy, but definitely far from a fresh DIPA. Lightly bitter, with some orange notes, and a caramel like backing. Better than I expected for a year old DIPA, and probably really good fresh. Thanks for the bottle!

22oz Bottle. A bit of aged hop, bright clementine citrus, and fragrant jasmine flower. Bright, hoppy and grassy. Not too much pine. Pours a slightly clouded amber-orange, with a slick rim in white. Grassy, piney and rich with resins, pitch and juniper. Nice spicy hop character over a decent toasty malt touch. Maybe a little wet with sugar. There is some dusty old lemon as old hops, but nothing cheesy and dead. Overall, this a very respectable high gravity IPA, with a little age on it. Thanks Piper!

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - JAN 30, 2009
Bottle. Strong floral hops aroma. Slightly hazy orange amber body, off-white head. Flavor is piney and earthy, powerful, with some background citrus. Lots of spicy bitterness. Very different from the usual grapefruit-dominant IPA.

rbrazell (1763) - Florida, USA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle from Proof. Deep golden pour with a bubbly white head. Sweet pale, biscuit and bready malts with piney and grassy hoppiness. Thick, creaminess in the body sweet malty caramel notes in flavor with piney, grassy bitterness. Pretty tasty beer, just nothing that really stands out or over the top.

Bomber bottle share. Aroma is a little hoppy, but with a lot of spicy malt as well. The appearance is a very light bronze with some lacing. The taste starts off on the back of the tongue and works forward. On the front, it comes in a dry fruit bitter flavor. Interesting for a high alcohol ipa. The palate is hoppy, but not too much. Overall, a well done beer in a much different sense than most alcohol heavy ipas. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flavor has a lot of booze, pine sol, pine sap, honey, orange rind, grapefruit rind, candy, a little bit of pineapple. Full, sticky finish.
