[3120-20100705] 12floz can. Super spruce evergreen hops aroma has a weird taco note. Clear, medium orange brown body with a big long-lasting creamy off-white head. Bitter sweet evergreen hops and grainy malt flavour has mild maple sugar notes. Medium-full body. Strange combination of bitter hops and sweet malt.

One of the best imperial Ipa’s I’ve had to date.Could easily hurt someone due to its exceptional smoothness. RPKLove (105) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2010
Damn impressive imperial IPA. Amazing citrus and hop aroma. Pours a nearly transparent copper color which is truly deceiving. A burst of hop bitterness and assault of citrus on the palate. You can really taste the high abv. I drank this one in the dark with no note pad, so I’m rating on memory alone, which is unfortunate cause it’s really good. Sorry for the lack of detail.

12 fl oz can [email protected]
, Oslo. A finger of dense beige head resting on a brilliant golden brown colored body. Leafy and piney hop nose with citrus tones. Sweeitish, light nutty malt aroma. Also a strange scent of spiced onions and herbs. Taste is medium sweet and dominated by not so appealing taste of bitter, roasted nuts and vegetables. Piny bitterness underneath. Noticable alcohol. Medium full, quite smooth in the mouth. Lingering bitterness in the finish.
Can Pours out a golden topped with a white head. Aroma huge tons of citrus and pine hops. Taste is obviously lots of hops grapefruit peel, pine resin, melon, and some sweet malt along with the help of some caramel it was able to pull it together.

Can sampled at Sorbon, Bromma, Sweden. Pours out in a hazy orange colour topped with a rich off-white head. Rich aroma of resin, grapefruit, quantalope and pineapples. Nearly full-bodied with rich bittersweet hoppy notes of resin, grapefruit, grass, melon, honey and starfruits. Long bitter resinous aftertaste. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - JUL 12, 2010
Slightly hazy orange amber color with a dense fluffy head. Aroma is big, nice full malt backbone with some pine and citrus juicy hops. Flavor is sweet, really malty. Great hop resin flavor, stick hops with lots of grapefruit and sweet pine. A touch or sugary sweetness and caramel. Awesome. mcox90 (2095) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 12, 2010
12 oz can. Pours a coppery/orange color wih a one finger white head. Thick looking, nearly opaque. Pungent hop aroma hits you the second you pop the can. Pine resin and grapefruit backed with malty sweetness. Flavor pretty much follows aroma, not a whole lot else to say. Hop heads only. Nice full palate with a long bitter finish. TheSponge (342) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2010
12 oz. can purchased at QFC in Lynnwood, WA. Pours a hazy amber color. Aroma: Bold grapefruit, with just a hint of spice. Flavor: Grapefruit, pine, and sweet malt. I prefer my imperial IPAs in bottles, but this is one awesome beer.
