COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer encompasses everything we love about Double IPAs. HOPS. We used a simple two-row base malt as a vehicle to bring a burst of hops to your palate. A healthy dose of Chinook, Simcoe and Citra is the reason we love brewing this beer.

Bartzilla (622) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 23, 2014
For a double IPA, this was fresh. I knew when I took a big whiff. Freshy. Nose has some hops in it. Flavor isnt standard DIPA fare. Hops first, malt second, hops to finish. This is how I like my double IPAs. This is some fine shit. Up there with the Sculpins, though not really. But close. Lovin it.

355ml can from DMs (BB 8/17). Pours clear bright golden with a loose white head. Hoppy nose of pine needles, citrus (oranges, grapefruit) on top of the biscuity malts. Taste follows the nose, quite sweet up front for a DIPA before a resinous hop bitterness takes over. Palate is oily and medium bodied with a lively mouthfeel. Quite nice but there are better fresher locally brewed DIPAs out there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hawthorne00 (3808) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2016
Can, 11C (be inclined to try the next one colder). Clear pale gold with a frothy inch of white head. Aroma of grapefruit, mandarin, pine, some onion (enough that you cant not notice once you do, but not enough to be really off-putting). Very sweet and apart from the hops, rather bland. Medium to high bitterness with resin and citrus, some pepper at the fairly classy finish. Pretty easy drinking for >8% (which is not a good thing). Goodish.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2016
Silver can. Gauzy paleness slicked over with white. Nose of orange and lime barley squash (neat), peach, pine, honey and slight bile. Good punchy straight-down-the-middle IPA uncluttered by soggy malt nonsense. All lemon zest, neat cordial and soapy flowers. Lean and savoury with zero heat. Like it.

tmoreau (4152) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Succinctly labeled bomber shared and poured to snifters at Lunar Brewing Co. showing a hazed, gold tone, with a modest layer of soft white foam, and light spots of lacing. The nose was dankness, greenery, and earthiness, with only a touch of fruitiness. Light to medium bodied, with okay carbonation, the taste added a fairly strong and lingering bitterness that was earthy & rind-like, along with a bit of warmth. Not very taken in by the aroma & body, but the flavor recovered somewhat. Why a separate bottling for the "Imperial IPA", when a simple description of the hop variation & abv would have sufficed?

mjg74 (3077) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Bomber from K&B. Quite hoppy from the get go. Easy sipping. Some citris notes. Mostly grapefruit with a touch of sweetness to it. A very solid 2IPA. Good and clean. Finish is grapefruit peel. No alcohol is noticed.

tightslice (1182) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Can from Target in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is pine, marmalade. Taste is marmalade with some dank piney earth. Solid and approachable for a DIPA.

Braudog (6579) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2016
Bottle. I know a big company bought this little company, but this is a big, good beer. Bright golden. Nice head. A brilliant San Diego examplar... Viscous and hoppy, oily. Brilliant. (#6308, 8/28/2016)

thegreenrooster (4280) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Pour is a cloudy orange with a large white head. Aroma is a fresh hop with a mix of citrus rind, honeydew melon and a faint green onion. Flavor is more of pineapple with some grapefruit bitterness. Finish is more fruit and is quite bitter. Pretty solid IPA. Plenty of fruity hops with no heavy malt to get in the way of the hops. My bottle is a bit old so getting my hands on a fresher bottle would have upped the score.
