UXO (1654) - CANADA - OCT 16, 2016
Appearance: hazy pale amber with two fingers of fluffy ivory head, excellent retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: resiny pine, caramel malt, grapefruit zest, grassy. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, high bitter. (6/10) Medium slightly oily body, moderate carbonation, off-dry short duration finish. (3/5) Please dont be malt-forward, please dont be malt-forward, please dont be malt-forward huh. Its sort of not malt forward. Malt heavy, sure, but not dominant. But the malts and the hops appear to be a mish-mash of whatever they could get their hands on - theres certainly no overriding theme here. And yes, its way, WAY too old. Id try it younger if I could get it younger, except Im in the friggin boonies, do they deliver this shit by walking it over the border, yadda yadda yadda. On the other hand, the big ABV doesnt really factor, so theres that. Its a big, malty DIPA. If thats your thing, go nuts - but Im less than impressed. (13/20)

malrubius (2697) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle from Meditrina. Light clear copper with lasting head and lace. Piney honey bready herbal aroma. Peachy apricot fruity honey sweetness with assertive piney herbal bitter long finish. Medium full sticky body bordering on cloying. Pretty decent if this were 1998. I just dont have to be bludgeoned to pulp by my DIPAs these days.

Wow. Just wow. A lot of alcohol and hops and yet I can drink this easy. It's a damn good imperial IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
