Chudwick (2923) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - OCT 24, 2016
12oz bottle of an ABV of 10.0% per the bottle along with 80 IBUs. Nose is citrus and paint stripper. Sip adds floral notes, booze, and flatness. I suspect this is old but te bottle is not able to confirm this. This is not that hoppy and kind of flat. I see a few floaties which my help my argument. Should rerate with something clearly fresher than this.

Hopper8 (55) - Holland, Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Its a little light in its appearance doesnt look as much like other imperial IPAs. That being said I really like this beer. Its got great hop presence on the front end, but wonderful fruitiness on the back end. I think for a beer meant to be complex, its a bit simple, but its so well balanced and incredibly enjoyable to drink. Big fan.

Little head and lacing. Hazy orange color. Citrus hop aroma similar to hopslam, however when tasted does not finish nearly as well. Has strong alcohol bite. Overall good imperial IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (4442) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 30, 2016
12 oz bottle with a bottling date of 17 May 2016. Hazy orange-amber body with a very good, off-white head. Patterned sticky lacing left on the glass. Aroma: quite fruity, mildly pungent, reeking of "citrus hops". Flavor: largely follows the aroma. Moderately high bitterness; Hints of spices and soft ripe fruits. Feel: Medium body and medium+ carbonation. Overall: a drinkable hop bomb with high but partially hidden alcohol.
