Piney and citrusy hop aromas with honey and caramel notes as well. Clear orange-gold with a mostly lasting, white head. Dry with fruity and bitter hops, cushioned by a heavy, malt backbone. Medium bodied and very smooth. Tongan77 (115) - Ventura, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2013 Bottle,color orange with a thin whitehead,smell is very hoppy,taste is bitter,very heavy beer. BeerKurve (520) - - JUL 26, 2013
Pours a hazy orange color with a 1 finger heads and sticky lacing. Strong Floral, Citrus, Dry and Piney hops all upfront followed by a caramel sweetness. Flavor is strong floral/piney/citrus hops and some grapefruit and caramel maltiness. The hoppiness is strong upfront but it becomes even stronger on the back of the palate. Body is heavy and the carbonation is moderate and lends to the flavor. Excellent Imperial IPA overall, cannot wait to have this again! mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Beautiful orange color with a sharp hop nose. Nice lace from a dissipating cream head. A bit of sweetness and then bitter hop. Kind of medicinal. Good not great. Amateurish to me. When breweries brew a line of beers it seems you can taste the similarity between them. The base beer ingredients. This beer has that distinct Sierra Nevada quality. I love variety and it doesn’t make you want to try all their beers when you know basically what they will taste like. But I am a hophead and this one is highly rated. tozac (19) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Dark orange, crystal clear. Huge nose, delicious. Hops are strong but not overpowering

Bright deep orange pour with a thinning white head. Aroma is light fruit. Flavor is strong hop, pine, some orange & moderate malt. Finish is dry, quite malty and lingering. Wow, what an IPA!

On tap at HOTB. Orange clear pour. Not a ton of head. Slight aroma of hops but mostly alcohol aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. rxeight (3084) - Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Very bitter. A bit floral. Sweet and carmel malt. Has that hop alcohol bite like hopslam but doesnt pull it off nearly as well. Decent but i really dojt see what the big deal is. RespertFTW (521) - Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle. Clear orange gold. Looks nice. Hop/pine/fruit aroma. Taste is heavy pine and hop as well. Fairly smooth for being a heavy hitter but slightly astringent in mouth. fr5ed (62) - Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Like Torpedo on steroids - but better. Grapefruity, resiny (if those are words) deliciousness. This is a great everyday DIPA. Need to get another keg if this.
