flying_pig (1531) - SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2016
651ml bottle from Good Spirits Co. Wine & Beer (7.50):
Great stuff, this one is a hop bomb to start with thanks to the huge hit of resinous pine to open things up but there was also plenty of sweetness & malts coming through from the middle onwards to help balance things out. I particularly enjoyed the tropical fruits, especially the mango that featured quite early on but the entire beer was a good one.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2016 Nice, strong floral bouquet on the nose. Hoppy, but not over-powering on the tongue.

Nez de fou : litchi, mangue, ananas, un fond un peu plus vert dherbes, de lgers agrumes... La mousse est extraordinaire pour une imperial IPA, paisse, tient extraordinairement bien. Elle a nanmoins un petit got savonneux et trs herbal (non a ne vient pas de mon verre). Sacre amertume ! Une bouche trs trs sche avec une sacre longueur herbale et lgrement florale. Lattaque a un trs lger maltage trs rapidement effac par un fort got de citron et de kumquat, trs soutenus par le ct herbe (do la forte impression "savonneuse"). Cela donne une pointe acide. Bien que je ne sois pas fou de ce genre, il faut reconnatre quelle a un sacr caractre.

Turboninja (706) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 17, 2016
[email protected], from Constantinos, Cleveland, USA. Medium/strong aroma with resin and slightly overaged, sweet mango. Deeper golden color with medium natural white head and slightly hazy liquid. Strong organic taste with balanced overaged mango, resin and hops. Some sweet malts. Medium/narrow taste spectrum and long hoppy aftertaste with sweet malts and fruits. Medium body with light/medium carbonation. Overall, nicely organic combination of sweet and sour nuances and even some malts can be detected. Bit simple.

Freaky_tiki (1184) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2016
Bomber from Total Wine. Pop the top & worship the hop. Big whiffs of pine & tropical orchard. Such a beautiful hop perfume. Deep notes of resin, mango chutney, orange marmalade & honey dripper malts. The real game winner here is the two-for-one prize of high octane hops & high drinkability. Where many double IPAs inevitable either bury the hops in too much malt or forget that drinking should be a pleasure. Sure, Id be game for even more hop firepower but this is such a pleasure to drink. I can only imagine how much better this would be fresh & on tap.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2016
650ml bottle. Clear golden orange in colour with a long lasting thin white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is very hoppy, lots of caramel, pine and citrus. The flavour is again straight up hops but with wonderful balance with toasted caramel hops, good sweetness as well. Hoppy mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long and hoppy. This is a wonderful DIPA, love the balance between the hops and malt.

Way too sweet for me and my wife also. Carbonation very weak. We love strong IPAs in the 70 - 105 I.B.U. range but the strong sweet flavor of this one overpowered the hops.
