Big flavor, intense pine and citrus aroma. We keep the malt profile clean in this Imperial IPA to let the love lights shine on the fine Northwest hops.

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.

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.

Very nice imperial IPA with a smooth sailing across the gums and tongue. Blessing to drink this one, had it after Jai Alai from Cigar City and that’s a good build-up!

I like this one more than the alphadelic. Goes down smooth, not overly bitter.

Pours a cloudy gold, with white head. Aroma of pine and hops. Taste is hoppy, rich and complex. This is a very nice IPA. Thumbs up.
