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.

dmschefke (576) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - MAY 22, 2009
Pours an a nice amber with thick off-white head. Aroma of very floral hops, slight citrus hops, and a little bit of pine. Flavor is interesting, but nothing unexpected from the aroma. A bit of sweetness balances this a bit too much. This just doesnt have the bite that it should. Enjoyable, but nothing I would search for again.

Drught. This is a good hop forward DIPA with enough malt backbone to hold the whole package together.

Bomber, bought in Durango. Floral hop aroma with notes of tropical fruit, citrus hops as well as some caramel malt. Pours dark amber colored with a large soapy off white head that has excellent retention and decent lacing. Starts with caramel malt flavors with a bit of tropical fruit and citrus hop sweetness. Finishes dry with floral hop flavor and some bitterness from the hops. Nice double IPA.

BeerRenter76 (842) - Texas, USA - APR 16, 2016
Originally rated on 8/27/08. Upon smelling this for the first time it reminded me of my grandmothers pineapple upside down cake. Aroma of canned pineapples and brown sugar were very pleasant. It poured a nice looking amber hued body with ample carbonation, a thin off white head that left very heavy lace on my glass. The most surprising aspect of this was the bitterness, hop bite was present but not as much as expected for an IIPA, in fact i didnt know it was an IIPA until looking at the bottle this morning to review it. Overall this is a pretty good brew, a little on the sweet side

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear bright copper with a thick, creamy off white head and lots of lacing. Tastes like grapefruit, hop resin, caramel malt, pine, and creamy orange. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like pine hops, grapefruit, resin, and faint caramel malt and orange.

This was on draft at the brewpub. Resiny hops dominate this brew, with solid results. It isnt mind-blowing, but it is a good big IPA.

DarkElf (3059) - La Jolla, California, USA - MAR 30, 2014
30-Mar-14 (22-oz bottle)
This Imperial IPA pours a hazy, amber body with over half an inch of light-tan head that settles to a ring, leaving a wide ring of doily-like lacing on the glass. The aromatic nose offers sweet and caramely malt, candied orange, and citrusy and lightly piney hops. On the palate, its nicely balanced between malt and hops, the malts tasting caramely, toffee-like, and fruity with medium-plus sweetness, the hops giving citrusy and piney flavors with medium bitterness. Its a full-bodied, medium carbonation beer thats very smooth and goes down way too easy for an 8+% ABV beer. Very enjoyable.

Amber with a creamy, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus, toast, and toffee malts. Taste of pine, citrus, toffee, spruce, with caramel malts, a grapefruit and alcohol finish.

Westchesterco (1883) - mclean, Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2013
At the brewpub on tap it is a clear golden color with a minimal head. The aroma is citrus and that is what cones through with the taste a slight bitter ending that lingers on the palate.
