On the whole this beer is greater than the sum of its parts for me. Drinking out of a wine glass with some air in it is allowing for some of the nice maltiness and breadiness that’s a little hidden to come out and balance the overwhelming grapefruit pulp bomb that dominates this beer. This is definately a sipper and it requires some patience to get all the wonderful complexities out of it. Impressed by how not overly-sweet it is for such a high alcohol content beer. Definately hoppy but the texture is surprisingly creamy and unsticky, especially when it comes down in temperature a bit. I was pleasantly surprised with this one.

Pour from a slim 12 oz can. Clear amber brew with nice head. Aroma dominated by piney hops, some citrus. Taste is sweet malts at the very start with pine and resin kicking in mid swallow. Finish is solidly hoppy, but restrained with some of the sweet malts still coming through. Lots of malt from start to finish keeps this from being a hop bomb. Very good but not a standout as a DIPA. jeremytoni (3058) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - DEC 18, 2012
From a can poured a darker brown color with a small amount of head. Strong hoppy flavor with a lingering aftertaste. jd10 (68) - Lebanon, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 17, 2012
pours golden amber with medium white head and some decent lacing. nose is all pine and citrus hoppiness. flavor is no surpise - serious spruce and citrus (mainly orange) hops, although not overwhelming. there’s definitely a somewhat sweet, malty presence, which helps add balance. finishes with more orange notes along with creamy malt, as well as a hint of bitterness. medium texture; not all that thick, but definitely quite sticky.

12 oz can to pint. Looks good; a semi-transparent orange with sticky off-white head. Smells and tastes solid; some hops and malt. Average on the palate. Decent, but forgettable. cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - DEC 12, 2012
12 oz. can via trade with DrSilverworm - Pours a hazy amber color with a one finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is big resin and pine hops. Flavor is much of the same with the addition of a little malt sweetness. Surprisingly, there is very little astringency and it’s not very bitter. Medium body. A good beer.

Deep copper glow with a nice amber tint and a good sixed off-white head. Aroma of pungent, resinous (funny) hops with a lot of sweetness, a ton of malt and perhaps even more alcohol! Medium to Full-bodied; Strong piney and herbal hop notes dominate the flavour with a good malt backbone, a bit of sprucey and herbal hop notes and quite a bit of alcohol warmth at the end. Aftertaste is potent and filling with the hops obviously dominating, but some robust sweetness and oaky herbalness also noticeable. Overall, a very nice Imperial IPA - not overdone and the small format can is nice as well. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Beer Table Pantry in New York, NY right before drinking this on the train upstate on 11-December-2012. ep2021 (29) - SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2012
