22 oz bomber imported straight from Eugene Market of Choice. Moderate head with considerable lacing. Solid semi-sweet taste with a strong but not overpowering hop punch on the back. Well balanced. Beautiful golden color. Not a world class DIPA, but a great effort and @ $4.99 a bottle I would revisit without hesitation.
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2018 0. 65 l bottle from Pivoteka . Big tasting #2. Hazy golden, small to medium white head. Fruity hops, orange and tangerine. Malty. Light bitterness. Very tasty fruity flavors. Medium body alcohol hidden, light bitter finish. Paulpopilek (12) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2017
Stong enough to lift a car. This imperial IPA is bitter enough to give you a shit grin. Quality taste but cannot pound it. Drink cold and enjoy

From a 12 oz bottle into a Het Kappitel chalice. Pours gold with head and lace. Aroma of grains, pale malt, slight citrus. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of bitter hops, grains, pale malt, slight pine, yard grass, hay, minerals, grapefruit rind zest, slight white pepper. Overall big, bold, quite a mouthfeel of flavors with an underlying malt sweetness and complex but tasty hops. Itzjerm (3171) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - OCT 25, 2017
Intense hop and sweetness. Building bitterness and sweetness as you drink neither fade which is impressive. Lasting head. chrisv10 (18696) - DENMARK - OCT 13, 2017

Nice pine and citrus aroma and taste faded gold appearance. Nice taste and good but not great finish. Lingers but could be longer. Looking for some everyday reasonably priced IPA and this will be one. Not my special but a good one

This is an IPA that wants nothing more than to work out its kinky deviance on your palate like a vengeful dominatrix. I'm sorry if that makes uncomfortable. The hops just do things to me. This brew has all of the floral, piney, and citrusy lupulin you could want from Northwestern hops. It hits you with bitterness and a garlic potency. The alcohol is totally concealed. Punish me, Alpha Centauri. I've been a very bad boy. natejgood (533) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - AUG 17, 2017
Pours clear medium golden with a nice white head. Large bubbles race from the bottom of the glass in huge quantities. You can smell this beer as soon as you open the bottle. Aroma of hops, malts and flowers. A good smell, but this beer smells strong. Interestingly, after smelling this beer the flavor isn’t as powerful as I would have expected. Starts off with citrus and molasses and builds with a hoppy finish. This beer is fairly malty and is a bit thick in the mouth. In my opinion, this imperial IPA doesn’t do as good a job as hiding its 9% ABV as some others. Definitely an intense aroma and interesting taste, but I think it comes up a little short in some other areas. Ernest (7886) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2017
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy light to medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie, toasted grain), moderately hoppy (apricot/peach, orange, melon), with hints of sour vegetable matter and plastic. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic, lightly astringent.
This is pretty good despite some brashness and rough edges. Nice fruity hops with only minor off notes.A bit kitchen sink-ish in the mouth...balanced, but just too much of everything really...kinda fatiguing like many DIPAs can be. Kinda hot and syrupy in the mouth too. Despite these nits, it really is pretty solid for the style, but not something I’d buy again. j12601 (13297) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2017
