Yellow-orange, a bit hazy, nice lace on the side of the glass as the foam recedes. Inviting aromas, mostly citrus, some perfume/floral. Bracing bitterness up front, a hint of carmel malts, then a battering of bitter follows through. Lingering resins in the luxurious finish, like toffee covered in pine sap. Ten, even five, years ago, this would have been an incredible revelation, now it’s just an average DIPA. If there is an "average" DIPA.

From bottle, the bottle is highly carbonated, had been in fridge 2 days 0 movement and the beer foamed immediately upon opening. The pour is yellowish Orange very cloudy with sediment at the bottom with a thick off-white head. The aroma is yeast sharp Hops and citrus. The aroma smells like the Imperial has been aged. The taste is a really hoppy with notes of raisins, a little bit of citrus and almost a little strawberry lightly in the background. The mouthfeel is thick and strong carbonation but rather smooth. The finish is citrus and dried fruit reminiscent of prunes. bigben873 (258) - Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2016
Too bitter hoppy (not malty enough) for an imperial ipa. A solid west coast regular ipa. The_Osprey (8189) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2016
August 2016 - Cask, gravity dispense at GBBF 2016 as ’Marble DIPA’. Hazy orange, foamy off-white head. Aroma is tangerine, orange, toffee, resinous hops. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is tangerine, toffee, boiled sweets, fruit laces. Pretty nice. Deep sweet flavour. Another beer that’s not really suited to cask, but which delivers anyway.

On tap at brewery. Fairly gentle hop aroma on a cloudy orange/golden pour. Skin of head leads into big hop bite. Sharp, short, but potent. Makes my cheeks flush. Tasty, but pungent aroma enough to make this a sipper. parkerj (52) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 1, 2016
It’s alright, but I like everything (except the Imperial Red) in the Seasonal Flight better. CObiased (506) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2015
22oz bottle - pours a cloudy orangey gold with a medium fluffy off white head. Good layered aroma of pine resin, juicy citrus peel, a touch of sweet caramel and bitter grass. Very satisfying IPA flavor starts with citrus, pine, bitter vegetal and some sweet malt. Smooth bitter aftertaste. Martinus (4610) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2015
