COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop on board and experience three "All American" hop varieties; Warrior, Tomahawk and Simcoe. which the brewers have worked into this Imperial India Pale Ale. The brewers focused in on the key attributes of each hop for the best possible interplay of aromatics and bitterness with the malt extraction. The result is a floral,citrus nose, bold bitterness and a hint of sweetness. Once again the Steam Team is on time and on track.

obguthr (5825) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Bottle best by 7/2009: Very oaky overripe whole orange nose. Shimmering copper, thin head. Malty and woody. Moss, dirt, and overripe oranges are prevalent. Not super bitter, but very earthy. Alcohol burn is tasteful and appropriate. Pretty nice.

skortila (5417) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2010
Bottled. The aroma has citrus, some pine, little malt. Hazy, orange coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is a bit sweet, quite bitter and harsh. Starts with hop juice, ends a bit more dry. Hops have grapefruits, melons, grass and some pine. good one.

paultheguru (644) - Parker, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Poured into a snifter. Color is of a slightly opaque amber with a lot of orange hues. Off-white head on top, rather low in height. Retention level holds up nicely, with a good amount of lacing. Aromas of floral and citrus hops, with a nice sweetness from the malts. Nice hops flavors, I pick up a lot of Warrior and Simcoe hop flavors with a nice solid citrus note. Good malt backbone on this, but a little light. Full bodied brew with this one. Very crisp and clean Imperial IPA. Good flavors, but I can see how the ABV(9.24%) could be a bit much in a bomber.

caesar (6740) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2010
Bottled. Hazy orange golden color, short head. Aroma of strong harsh hops, quite sharp. pine, grapefruit. Bitterness is on the contrary pretty soft, especially compared to the more harsh aroma. I was in the mood for such a DIPA, so quite nice.

22 oz bomber. Pours a slightly cloudy coppery amber with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of caramel and light pine. Taste is hoppy with hints of pine resin and caramel.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2010
Draught. Orange and brown with white head. Aroma is muffled by creamier head but consists of citrus fruits and light candy sweetness from bigger malt background. Flavor follows malty with tangy citrus hop bite burying into the back of your gums with lasting bitterness. Finishes extra long and extra dry lipped.

r464 (2315) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Coppery in color. Very hoppy, though the flavor is tempered with hints of grass and citrus. Strong in alcohol content. Best sipped and enjoyed in the evening :)
