3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle I purchased @ the Phoenixville brewpub. Fresh bottle served at cellar temperature. The color is perfectly clear amber with normal amount of carbonation. Nose is a subdued caramel malt and toffee. Taste is pine hops upfront then flowing into grapefruit and grassy hops. The texture is dry with a lingering bitterness. Lighter in body for an Imperial however, it adds to the drinkability. Nice effervesces. Can you find much better in style? Yes you can but this is easy to drink with solid bitterness. Well made.

Can from beerhive. Hazy orange, thin head. Sticky caramel nose. Medium body, low carb. Thick mouthfeel, sticky. Bitter resinous taste. Certainly more imperial than double to me (I know there is no technical difference). Just a mile away from the other DIPAS out there at the moment. cgarvieuk (26360) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 9, 2016

Tasty Towey1989 (3427) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2016
Can from Beermoth, Manchester. Pours a hazy amber colour with a frothy off white head. Aroma of toasted malts, some biscuit, orange, slight grapefruit, a little pine and floral hops. Taste of orange, grapefruit, some pine, a little peach, slight toasted malts and subtle floral hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A lingering, dryish, slightly piney, floral hop bitterness in the finish. A little on the malty side at first and a fruity, piney end. Subtle alcohol detected and a bitter finish. Solid but there are better. Garrold (5814) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2016
Can. Wine Rack, Sharrow, Sheffield. Just a month date left on this. Hazy, dark ginger colour. Thin, dense, lasting, cream coloured head. A bit leggy. Looks good. Nose has sweet, fusty, candied orange hop. Thick, pungent, honey malts. Some spice, and floral herb. It’s not fresh, but it does smell pretty good. Taste is rich, spicy and sweet, turning big, oily, chewy bitter. Full bodied and smooth. Long, hugely bitter, spicy finish. Really enjoyed this one.

Pours cloudy orange amber with tall white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, somewhat floral. Taste is resin bitter with a mellow fruity finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation. hrabren (1947) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 23, 2016
0.33 l can from Pivoteka, Zagreb. Shared with Višnja 666. Hazy golden, rich creamy off-white head. Relatively light tropical hoppy aroma considering the style, uninteresting. Aromas and bitterness develop in the beggining, they settle down, then bitterness kicks in. Alcohol well hidden. Medium body. Long bitter finish. Quite drinkable. Good, but too ordinary.
