This is a nice brew. Pours out a deep orange color with a nice white head. Aroma is very hoppy and citrusy. Flavor was nice, but not nearly as bitter as i had hoped for. Over all not a bad brew at all. Something I will have again. Also after 6 pints of this stuff, youll be drunk. I certainly was. DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2007
On draft at the brewpub . Nice looking light gold with a moderate white head. Hoppy pine and citrus aroma over a light brown sugar background. Medium body and carbonation, pretty clean on the palate. Bitterness takes center stage, although there is a pretty substantial caramel malty background that prevents thing from getting out of hand. A very nice double IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 12oz bottle thanks to jrob21. Pours a cloudy amber with a thin, off-white head. Nose is very powerful citrus. Taste was same as smell. Mouthfeel was medium-thin with a strong, mouth tingle from the hops and a very bitter finish. Out of balance in a hop-forward way, but that’s ok for this hop-head. Loved it. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2009
decaturstevo’s Febmergency Tasting. Sample from a bottle thanks to decaturstevo. Slightly hazy orange-copper with a thin white head. Big grapefruit hop aroma. Taste is big caramel malt base and a big grapefruit citrus. grandridge (224) - Port Clinton, Ohio, USA - MAR 13, 2009
12oz bottle from a BIF. Pours a standard DIPA cloudy golden with a light white head. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit with some pine resin. Flavor is good, this isn’t top tier good, but I think it’s in the next level down (hard to beat fresh dreadnaught, pliny or hopslam). Medium to full body with a subdued carbonation. FIavor is good, with some pine, citrus and an underlying bitterness. I just think it doesn’t finish as clean as the top tier DIPAs also the flavor isn’t as addictive. Still a very enjoyable brew.

Nice Impy IPA... Pours an orange-amber, semi-hazed into the glass, with a nice eggshell head that leaves generous lace. The nose is of citrus, pine and floral notes. The flavors, although not indicative of the traditional IIPA (not quite the malty backbone that I’m accustomed to), are integrated excellently. There is plenty of grapefruit, rind, zest, some caramel and pine needles throughout. The finish has a nice lingering hop bite, along with a touch of alcohol to close the pull. The mouthfeel is sticky, and the body is full. Excellent drinkability, and a solid addition to the Natty Greene’s line. hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2009
12oz bottle shared courtesy of TomDecapolis. Poured a medium and hazy amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, floral hops, and pine. Tastes of citrus, pine, and caramel. phaleslu (10553) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2011
12 oz. bottle from emacgee- thanks again, Ethan! Pours a clear amber color with a three finger-thick, frothy off-white head that leaves a lot of heavy, sticky lacing. Aroma of sweet and bready malts, cereal grains, caramel, and earthy hops. Flavor has a ton of caramel malts, cereal grains, grassy hops, sweet resin, and some herbs and spices. Medium-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Just a little bitterness. The hops are certainly there, but the malts really make this a cool beer. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2006
GABF 2006: Hazy amber color with a small off-white head. The aroma was hop foward with citrus and grass notes. Good malt standing right behind it. The flavor was mostly sweet malt with light hop flavor running in the background. Kind of mild on the bitterness in the finish. tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours cloudy copper orange with ivory head. The aroma is full of fruity hops- candied pineapple, grapefruit, apricot- and also some very sweet malty notes. The flavor is sweet brown sugar and very light toast, with some fruity and floral hops. The finish is only slightly dry, but very floral and herbal. Lots of hop flavor without being all that bitter. A bit of alcohol comes out as it warms. Dense mouthfeel. Pretty good.
