650ml bottle. Pour is copper in color with thin head. Aromas of sweet malt and caramel on the nose. On the pallet red grapefruit and the bitterness of the Cascade hops dominate. Some spicy notes mixed with floral undertones, Dry finish with persistent dry bitterness. The 9.25 abv well shielded as the malt and hop play off each other.

Pours a straw from a bottle. Big pine/tropical notes in the nose follow into the mouth. Rather sweet. Good beer.

It may have been passed it’s prime. Tasted fine, but nothing more. Red grapefruit was still reckognizable, but not too sweet. Coppel colour with almost no foam.
Plays by the standard rules for an imperial IPA. Nothing remarkable or outstanding, but overall a decent effort. john44 (3420) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2017
Bottle. Copper in colour. Very Hoppy; piney resinous and grassy spicy hops. Fruity; grapefruit and tangerine citrus. Malty; toasty malts, wheat and caramel. Nice hop/fruit/malt balance. Much sweeter than most American IIPAs or DIPAs. Quite fruity and spicy, with a pronounced and lingering hop dryness. Enjoyed this. Nice IIPA!

Orange pour with white head and lace. Aroma is large resiny hops and sweet bready malt. Flavor starts out as big sweet maltiness followed by resiny hops. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation. very good HoppyScallywag (339) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2016
Malty aroma but not nearly as malty as I anticipated on first taste. The malt is mellowed by a very slight citrus and the alcohol warm. A little heavier, but not out of the question in the summer, if in the mood.

Drank from a pint glass poured from a twelve ounce bottle from a twelve pack sampler. Very hop forward with the Chinook hops, aroma isn’t overly hoppy, but the bitterness.
