3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2015 Thanks to iNBe. A rather thirst quenching DIPA. OK, it was hot and I should have chosen a different beer but it was the only one cold and I probably drank the first half of the bottle too quickly. So it was grapefruity too. Rather good, but the serious hop heads will find it a bit mild. I liked it though. Serving: bottle

This particular offering seems to me to be pretty much the usual DIPA, but what I don’t like about it is the obvious alcohol content, undisguised by maltiness, hops or flavor. So many other DIPA’s do a much better job at this... sometimes to my detriment (I’m thinking of you, Lagunitas Maximus!) Aroma of citrus and caramel, pours amber with a cream head. Sweet and full malty flavor with some pine involved. I would try this again.

Draft at Pyramid Taproom, Oakland Airport. Pours clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus, floral notes. Taste is citrus, floral notes, caramel malt, bread. Finish is moderately bitter and a little too sweet.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is sweet corn, caramel, mild pine and citrus. Taste is sweet and subdued...maybe this wasn’t very fresh, a little too sweet and not nearly enough hop flavor for an Imperial IPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark copper color. Moderate, but stable light beige head. Floral to citric fresh hops aromas. Hints of toasted malt in the background. Quite citric and malty. Fairly sweet with a mild syrup flavor. Finish is a bit biting and quite long. The longer I wait between quaffs, the more I hesitate. 12/10

Sweet caramel, cotton candy, pineapples and pine in aroma. Ruby copper with small head. Medium bitterness with notes of tropical fruit in taste. Pretty decent ipa, something different.

This was a very strong beer it had a nice upfront kick that really was strong but didn't go all the way through the beer to take it over.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep amber. Minimal head. Aromas of sweet malt, a touch of corn, and hops. Taste is of buttered biscuits, citrus hops, a touch of pine, and a nicely smooth finish. ABV is noticeable only very late in the palate. A nice beer. Not great, but so few are.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Pours a hazy amber with a beige head and good lacing. Smells fruity pineapple and earth. Tastes fruity and tangy, not your standard NW DIPA. Nice level of bitterness and a good fruity aftertaste that lasts the right about of time.

Yum. Not my fave IIPA, but gets the job done. ABV not noticeable, which is great if you want go havesies with your best friend.
