COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nothing is like celebrating your own milestones. This is a celebration of our 500th batch of ale. It was brewed with joy and splendor; the brewer wore a suit, and a TV station filmed the event. As a base for this ale, we have elected to play with numbers: 5 hops, 100 IBUs, 10% alcohol by volume. Indeed it is an Imperial India Pale Ale. Big and bold. Great for a celebration!

NeuroPliny (247) - Calgary, Alberta, - MAY 9, 2014
Poured from a 750 cc bottle shared with JB. Pours cloudy copper with a quickly fading tan head. Aroma is an amazing fusion of tropical fruit (papaya, banana, mango), sugar cane, caramel, and sweet malt. Flavour is roasted malt with notes of caramel, coffee, and dried dark fruit. There are surprising hops giving a crisp bitter finish. Medium body. Awesome Imperial IPA!

Good IPA imperial. I drunk it fresh and old (aged). Aged is sweeter, honey, hops, not so bitter. Is meady... Colour - browny-orange, sugary, with sugary notes. Little bit fruity. Raisins also... Aged version doesnt have such head as if you drink it fresh. In aged version - hops turn into mead. I like it. I wonder why people say - dont age it! Anyway - it is ale, why not? - it could have something different in taste and aroma... head and colour...

Marstonlad (940) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2017 On tap at Craft Beer Coeln. Pours murky light brown with a little white head, not a very pleasant outlook. The aroma features mostly strong hoppiness - pine, citrus fruits and resin - with a touch of sweetish maltiness. Intense. Taste is heavily, brutally bitter with also some initial sweetness. Flavours of caramel, pine and fudge. The palate is full-bodied and smooth. Warming alcohol. Rich, complex and intense - classic Nögne.

klm1 (1782) - Bled/SF, - AUG 1, 2017
pours deep orange like golden, slightly hazy with fluffy white head. Aroma: moderate intense citrusy, pine, resin like hop profile and intense malt character which takes on bread, toast, biscuit...flavor follows aroma: intense malt character, with notes of bread, toast, biscuit and hint of caramel, supported with resin, pine, citruses like hop character. hop bitterness is very high, hidden with full malt backobone....finish is dry, bitter...bitterness lingers in aftertaste. Body is full, texture oily, carbonation is medium. Alcohol is perfectly hidden, but 10% knocks you...

Jestem pod ogromnym wrazeniem. Niesamowity zapach. pelno cytrusow, pachnie jak sok ze swiezo wyciskanych grejfrutow, pomaranczy, pomelo, kazdego koloru. Smak totalnie ciezki, moc tych ze wlasnie cytrusow, oliwa z oliwek, grzyby kurki, maslo. Niesamowicie tlustawe i oleisto-zywiczne jest to piwo z atakujacymi chmielami z kazdej strony. Ciezkie jest niestety tak ciezkie jak ciezarowka zaladowana imigrantami Syryjskimi. Alkohol spory choc nie wyczuwalny to nieco uderza po glowie. Doskonale esencjonalne i tresciwe piwo. Jedyny drobny minusik to mala piana. Ale za to osadu tyle co piachu w piaskownicy. 100 IBU doskonale tu lagodzi az 5 rodzajow slodow. Doskonale zroznicowane, niemal ideal stylu jak dla mnie.

DwarfeD (3540) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2017
Draught at Marktzicht, Amersfoort. Hazy dark orange with a small white head. Full body with low to moderate carbonation. Quite bitter with subtle fruity sweetness. Pine, tropical fruits, malts, caramel and spices. Tasty!

beer-yum (1866) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 13, 2017
Pine and malt aroma in a dirty orange brown pour. Hoppy balance is covered by a big toffeee caramel malt body which is sustained through the finish. Surprisingly easy to down - dangerously so. Probably better described as a TIPA though...

CurlyJoe (305) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2017
Cloudy orange with almost zero white head, lots of sediment. Big marmalade fruit aroma, citrus. Sweet taste, once again marmalade. Bitter fruit as you expect, however sweet fruit character is probably stronger than bitterness. Massive bitter hop hit, then smooths to allow lots of other hop flavour to come through. Booze is there, but not overpowering, compliments other flavours. Great beer for sipping, suprisingly refreshing. Sharp on the palate.

Svesse (8731) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2017
(Bottle) Reddish amber colour with dense, beige head. Malty, hoppy, slightly vinous nose with notes of treacle-toffee, resin, grapefruit, caramel, dried fruit, dates, pine needles, rye bread, some chocolate and liquorice. Malty, hoppy taste with resin, burnt rubber, toffee, dates, rye bread, chocolate, burnt sugar, orange peel, liquorice, tropical fruit and a slightly fiery finish with a generous resiny bitterness and a touch of alcohol. More than medium body, quite sweet. A bit boozy and slightly unbalanced, but really tasty with a generous hop presence. Very nice.
