Keg @ Pelican. Gold pour with a small white head. Aroma is bright. Loads of citrus and dank greenery. A bit of onion. Honeyed bread underlying. Flavor’s quite bitter. Underlying sweetness. Some blunt onion. A bit slick. OK gear. Nothing subtle about this Nickls (2652) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Tap. Slightly clear yellow mud puddle. Nose is fruity, some candy, citrus, and some berry notes in the aroma. Flavisnis more bitter, some grass, berries and slight resin. Medium slick body.

A hearty looking IPA with a lovely head that clings to the sides of the glass longingly. The aroma is fantastic, full of incredibly juicy fruit. Satsuma and orange dominate and there is a slight roasted note in there too. This drinks very light with a carbonation that is almost too pin-prickly to begin with but which quickly subsides into a more mellow, oily texture. There is definitely a note of acetone in the finish as that ABV rears its head but it mixes quite well with the resinous hop to give this beer some serious attitude.

Nice orange coloured ale with a good sized frothy/bubbly white head.
Aromas of orange pips, peach stone and young pine shoots. Nice.
Taste is fruity, piney and at the same time creamy, alcohol barely noticed. Very inviting.
Lovely smooth satin like mouth feel until the very end were the hops break up the sweetness.
Overall a very nice easy to drink Imperial IPA.

22. Thanks, D&S! Pours a hazy dark orange amber with a loose, light tan foamy head. Sweet caramel and orange nose. Creamy medium body with light carb. Heavy sweet syrupy caramel malt base on the mid palate, big sweet oranges. Long sweet finish. If this were a bit lighter, dryer, and more approachable in the malt base, the hop flavors would shine through a lot more. Fatehunter (2654) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 6, 2016
Pours two fingers of head on a hazy straw body.
Aroma is danky grapefruit and lemon with a little orange.
Taste super malty with deep pine and citrus bitterness.
Texture is thick. bpreo (3057) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 5, 2016

Re-Rating 2/10/2018: From the bottle, it's strong, tastes like a ton of hops, and would knock anyone out who wasn't ready for it. My rating not only holds, but increases...
