Drake (13954) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting. Pours orange with big chunks, large frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel, toffee, citrus, tropical fruit. The taste is bitter astringent hops and pale malt. Medium bodied, off balance and kind of all over the place.

3.8
VinegarStroke (429) - Napa, California, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle: cloudy, heavy lees, deep copper, medium head and lace. Very lifted malted driven double IPA. Caramel. Fruity, clean and dense. Dry, bitter and not sour. Very dense malty style. Good depth of flavor. A double IPA in the English style. Malt driven rather than hops. Very good beer.

2.9
damzz (504) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Pours a pale orange with a very thin white head that persists with little lacing. Nose is hoppy IPA. Taste is hoppy malt dominated by hops and a bitter aftertaste. This is a typical IPA Imperial. Nothing special. 1 liter resealable bottle.

AgentAle (1764) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2014
Aroma is a rich hop profile with citrus, lemon grass and a nice earthiness. Taste is a light sweet crisp maltiness with a fairly dominant hop body which comprises of grapefruit and tanin which leaves light bitterness burn on finish. Pretty well balanced overall. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Tasted at Willow Park Beer Bash 2014. Unfortunately, there was no time for detailed notes - and I only made it through half my list even so!

vadie (1256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2014
Un bon impériale très malté. Pas d’agrumes juste de houblon dans l’arôme et le goût. Un peu sombre pour le se est pas aussi complexe pour que ça soit une très bonne impériale mais un bon boisson quand même!

ads135 (4731) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Mediocre IPA. One of the mildest double IPAs I’ve had. Musty aroma, and slick mouthfeel.

3.4
pictoman (1149) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2014
Poured from the tap. Clear copper with minimal off white head. Bready malt with mild caramel and grapefruit hops. Medium dry finish.

3.3
Travlr (25276) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Sample at Atlantic Beer Festival Moncton. Clear orange color, medium white head. Aroma of orange peel and grapefruit. Taste has citrus and light toffee. OK.

3.2
kidobutai (693) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2014
poured from a bottle. Really enjoyed the aroma, taste wasn’t bad but not as good as the aroma. Malt finish, creamy, I liked it more the more I consumed.
