Smooth for its strength. A solid IPA that doesn’t blow you down with hoppiness. Hinez57 (253) - Clinton, Mississippi, USA - OCT 30, 2016
Not over the top hoppy in aroma or flavor. Very floral-fruity. Juicy fruit gum on the nose and taste. Beautiful clear pale gold. Nice malty base light grass/hay, more sweetness than usually associated with most good iipas. Good fairly viscous mouthfeel with firm bitterness and little gearing finish. Overall well made, enjoyable, fruity, very clean, balanced drinkable brew. coldbrewky (1730) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Impy IPA... You focking cretins. Yeah, its kinda robust. Its kinda lacey and a nice gold in the Daffy Duck glass. but it seems to go about 84.6 % of the way and then go......Meh... it reminds me of those co workers which I despise. Again I state the logisticians and bean counters got a hold of the brewers nut sack, squeezed and then said... "we are growing exponentially Focktard!, Damn the craft! full speed ahead! Make sure we have every style represented somehow within this ridiculous budget! Sub standard beer? that’s OK! Its brand recognition that counts! The public is confused and will like what we tell them to like....!" That is the state of this underwhelming IIPA.....

[Bottle (355ml)] Pours a deep amber-gold with an average size lasting frothy white head. Good amount of lacing. Aroma is lightly sweet and fruity along with bready malt and a good amount of hops. Nice fruity, hoppy flavour (7+) with a moderately bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied. Easy to drink for an Imperial and quite enjoyable. Shot (533) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Pours golden with a massive frothy white head. Subdued aromas of floral hops. Flavors are stone fruit, herbal tones, mango, fresh bread, and a bit of fresh cut grass. Nicely balanced. Clean mouthfeel. Drinks easily for an imperial IPA, but the alcohol presence is noticeable. Overall, very nice.

12 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, served a few minutes out of the fridge in a pint glass. Slightly hazy amber-gold, moderate white stable head lasts and lasts and leaves touches of crystalline lacing when it finally subsides...nose is primarily citric and sweet - honey-dripping-orange - but there’s some woody and earthy notes there too...quite sweet upfront, moderately bitter all the way through, drying out somewhat towards the end; fairly acidic, somewhat tart, but primarily juicy; there’s also something of an overripe or spoiled fruit tone that doesn’t really help matters...thick and fairly syrupy body, moderate tingly carbonation. I think this is the first NB beer I’ve rated since I’ve been back on this site and it’s certainly one of only a few that I’ve had over the last several years, though it’s become a ubiquitous brand in the Midwest. Something about them just doesn’t appeal anymore; while this was not a terrible experience or anything, it’s not about to make me care about this brewery either. danielst (405) - AUSTRIA - SEP 23, 2016
On tap: Golden color. A ripe pear and apricot hop fruitiness. Noticeably sweet honey malt, pleasant alcohol note and a relatively mild bitterness. Delicious. Martinus (4601) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2016
Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of hops, loads of hops, tropical fruits. Bitter flavour, light sweet, honey. Finish tropical fruits and honey.Ungstrup (37558) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2016
(from 65cL bottle @ Leuven Innovation, Leuven 2015)
Bottled. A golden beer with a huge white head. The aroma has notes of hops, spices, citrus fruits, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, carmel, hops, flowers, alcohol, citrus fruits, and spices, leading to a bitter finish. Bosco (322) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2016
Not "pure copper" like brewer states, more like an almost clear yellow with fine head and lacing.
Hard to describe complex flavor includes candy, citrus, toffee, spice among others. Not "bone dry" yet a fairly dry finish. This beer deserves another go around.
