AdamGott (386) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - JUN 27, 2013
extreme malt aroma with alcohol and pine - cloudy light amber pour with lots of head - all of the typical flavors are present - citrus, pine, malt, alcohol - finishes with bitter orange/malt

12oz can poured into glass. While I was intrigued by having a DIPA out of a can this one didn’t really live up to my expectations. There just wasn’t enough hop character to it and it was overall pretty boring.

Can, extra from trade with my friend Randy in Arizona. Pours a clear golden orange color with a big, thick foamy head that fades very slowly, leave some lacing. Fairly faint aroma of musty grass hops and pale malt. Taste is stale, bitter hops with no sweetness to balance. Very strong bitterness. Light caramel malt backbone. Overpowering oily mouthfeel which also makes it a little thinner than I like. Overall, bitter hop bomb and the hops aren’t even fresh. Not a very good Imperial IPA.

A nicely balanced IPA. Not as intense as some other raters suggested. Good maltiness and a tangy hoppiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beerbastard (844) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Can poured amber with some lacing. Malty carmel nose. Sweet bread like malts with some chocolate in the background. It lacks the hop flavors and bitterness to balance. Not the cleanest finish, a little harsh.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Can:   Amber, clear, slightly fiery, moderate off-white batter like head, fairly nice lacing.   Seems like a fairly strong rich biscuity and caramel nose.   Moreso on the caramel side.   Sweet pithy flavor, citrusy, moderate malt base, not too bitter or hoppy.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Seems like a weak malty IPA if you ask me.   Not much about this says Imperial IPA, not big in malts nor hops.   It certainly isn’t all that bitter either.   Its not bad, its just overall light.

DuffMan (10423) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle, Vegas, somewhere on the strip. Malt forward IPA, breadcrusts and caramel share the stage with piney hops. Moderate bitterness. I liked it. Fuck you,

Sledutah (7526) - Utah, USA - APR 28, 2013
22oz bottle picked up at Lee’s Discount
Appearance: Pours clear golden with a medium sized off-white head and good lacing
Aroma: Grapefruit and pine resin
Taste: Fruity, caramel and pine resin
This is my kind of IIPA, great. Hoppy but not over the top bitterness. I would love to try this fresh. Next time I’m in Las Vegas I need to find this on tap.

This beer is a kick in the teeth. It’s all hops and nothing else. There is nothing else to detect in the taste, poor execution overall.

3.1
BeerandBlues2 (13304) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 10, 2013
Can @ home. Pours clear burnt orange with a large, frothy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is fresh, green and wet hops with grassy and citrus notes, apple, pear, and peach fruity esters with honey and biscuit malt. Flavor is moderate hops and subdued bitterness with stale malt, light fruity esters, and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation with light alcohol warmth.
