Bottle. Amber color. Aroma: fruits, hay, flowers, white port wine. Taste: port, juicy, slightly sweet, pleasant hop bitterness, good. brandon1989 (712) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2017 2017 Vintage: Pours a mostly clear orange color with a two finger off white head. The aroma is very hoppy, pine, hop resin, citrus notes, bready malts. The flavor is the same as the aroma. At first you get hit with a wave of hops and pine and feel the 100 ibu but the finish is citrusy and bready and very well made. The mouthfeel is heavy and abv hidden well. gnoff (11145) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2017

Clear golden to amber color, off-white head. Hoppy, fruity, sweet, caramel scent. Sweet, hoppy, bitter, tropical fruits, alcohol taste. Medium full mouthfeel, medium high to high bitterness. For me to high bitterness and not that well hidden alcohol.

It started with a good aroma and then I was completely surprised by the full round taste.

Clear amber, thick offwhite head. Aroma has malt, pine and peach. Strong, hoppy flavour. Piney, resinous with fruity peach and orange. Some sweetness and lasting bitterness. Slightly chewy. Warming. Very flavourful, strong but still well balanced. Piw (1290) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2017
355ml Flasche. Klar und rotgolden mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Intensives Hopfen- und Malzaroma. Fruchtig. Geschmacklich erst herb und trocken dann malzig süß. Alkohol leicht schmeckbar. Wojo21 (354) - Pelplin, POLAND - JAN 8, 2017
Aromat dość intensywny, tropikalno żywiczny. Barwa bursztynowa, zamglone, piana średnio obfita. W smaku słodkie, takie karmelowe ale nie do końca, oleiste. Goryczka wyrazista, ściągająca. Ogólnie dobry imperial. PabloZab (1750) - Wroclaw, POLAND - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle 355ml.Clear amber colour, white-yellowish big head, long with great lacing. There are sweet tropical fruits in aroma, fresh and intense, very nice to smelling. Additionally malty aroma like for barley wine, very nice as well. Bitterness is high with herbal character with alcohol hint at the finish. Full body, a bit dense, a little sweet from second site. Good balanced between bitterness and malty body. Warms inside but it’s quite drinkable when we look at the power of the beer. Very good imperial IPA, malty and bitter with fresh aroma of hops. Maybe one small minus for alcohol which is quite intense when beer gets warmer. PugUglyBrewer (840) - - DEC 22, 2016
Up there with Narwhal as one of my favorite Sierra Nevada brews. A "triple" IPA that is aggressive on all descriptors. Big malt base of caramel and toffee that supports candied orange, fresh pine, grapefruit, and perhaps some tropical notes in there as well. The 10.4 ABV is impressive and is masked well by the engineering of the recipe.
