Oh this brew is rich and lush on the tongue with a heavy malt backbone and strong hop shards that cut right through the blubber. Sip this one cold on a hot night. Deeply golden in color with long head retention and strong aromatics.

I cant understand the other comments on this beer. Its truly amazing. I thougt double IPA wasnt my style anymore but this one blowed my mine. Nearly no malt flavour at all, this is all about grape, the aroma is the only thing that says its a double IPA and not a regular IPA. The high ABV is well hidden in the big amount of hops. Im in love with this beer . Port Brewing is one of the best breweries ever.

Aroma is hop/candy, pine and sweetish malts. The flavor is fruit/berries, hops, mild/medium sweetness in the middle, malts and a very long and very bitter/mild heat in the finish.

From Zombier. 6? 66cl. In Teku glass. Playing Broken Sword 4. Very resinous. Reminds me my beloved Pseudosue but this one is just a tiny step below because its higher ABV, which is very well hidden but goes up to the head pretty quickly

I dream of making a beer like this someday. Has real triple threat bite with alcohol, bitter and carbonation all hitting you at once. Really must let this one warm up and fizz out a bit so it can bloom in all its glory. Tantalizing malty grain nose. Dry in the mouth. Numbs the lips quick and everything else soon after. Yeah Baby! I detect some Scotch and caramel here. Mesmerizing.

For the longest time I was on a real drought when it came to IPAs and double IPAs. Now that Ive discovered the Craft Ale House in Limerick, I am now most definitely on a roll. Thanks to the folks over there at the CAH, I have been the recipient of a huge amount of great (I)IPAs. I have sampled a good amount on draft there, and taken home a good amount of bottles. This Impy IPA was an impulse purchase of mine out of their enourmous selection of bottled brews. With this one, along with quite a few others, I am definitely falling in love with the West Coast-style of (I)PAs. They have this sweeter nose than those from the East Coast, and that makes an IPA that much more enjoyable. And this offering is no different. This double IPA just has that fruiter and sweeter nose that a lot of other IPAs dont have. The beer pours a darker copper color with a slight haze. The head is off-white and sticks beautifully to the edges of the glass. As mentioned, the nose is intoxicating, with notes of pine, grapefruit, hops, earth, bread and coriander. The body is full, but completely drinkable and deliciously enjoyable. The flavors are well-rounded and balanced, with notes of citrus, grapefruit, lots of hops, grass, earth and a bit of bread. The finish is also quite balanced, with notes of citrus, bread, spicy hops and toast. This is one damn good double IPA. Im glad I know where to get more!

On tap. Opague orange color, it just looks like pulpy mush from some tropical fruit. The aroma was sweet melon and loads of grapefruit. Wow. Citrus and resinous hops about, very complex. This is mouth-puckering hoppy and super thick...like a hoppy milkshake.
