4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The orange amber colored body was clear, and the pour formed three ginger thick head. The carbonation looked subdued. The aroma was very tropical, with mango, peach, and papaya smells. There were also spicy and herbal notes in the nose. The taste was quite intense, as the spicy hops battled with the very sweet malt base. The result was not unlike sucking on a cinnamon flavored red hot. The alcohol was very warming as well, and the mouthfeel was sticky. This was a typical east coast style DIPA, with complex malt bill, lots of herbal hops, but no bracing bitterness.
12oz bottle to tulip with 10abv/80ibu. Pours clouded orange copper, beige foam head, heavy sediment. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, mango, fig, onion, booze, pizza dough, white pepper. Taste of same with good caramel malts. Excellent thick syrupy body. Good blend of hoppy fruit, spice, bitter and sweet. Balanced for a hop bomb. Pretty boozy finish...typical for a 10.0% PhillyCraft (7219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2016
Blackberry backlog, Bottle, pours a very light hazy copper with medium to larger head. Smell is citrus, caramel malt, bread, and light vanilla bean. Taste is hop resin, wood, and other bready malt. Some lingering sweetness. Chudwick (3205) - Taylor Mill, 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 (178) - Holland, Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2016
It’s a little light in its appearance doesn’t look as much like other imperial IPA’s. That being said I really like this beer. It’s got great hop presence on the front end, but wonderful fruitiness on the back end. I think for a beer meant to be complex, it’s a bit simple, but it’s so well balanced and incredibly enjoyable to drink. Big fan. justkoehn (157) - Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2016
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.

Bishops Arms, Umeå. Hazy amber colour, small white head. ARoma is glue, fruits, grass and some crisp maltiness as well. Flavour is hoppy, some alcohol and grassy notes with also some mild wooden and sweet malty notes to it. Slightly too much on the boozy side of things.
