Pours a dark amber copper color with a small white head. Aromas of sweet caramel malt, and floral hops. Taste is initially caramel sweet followed by a great hop bite. Mouthfeel is moderate. dfhhead25 (251) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2012
Aroma- malts, caramel, floral hops, bread
Appearance- dark, hazy, blood red, with some lacing and an off-white head
Taste- hops, malts, caramel, more malts, slight hop finish
Palate- decent body, mouthfeel is best part of the beer
Overall- Two-toned beer with opposites as main parts. The dichotomy of these two characters make the beer jive too much for my liking. jkwalking05 (4745) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2012
Brown in color and hazy with a good sized beige head. Aroma is of caramel, nuts, bread, hops and light grass. Taste is of spicey hops and caramel. A very well balanced Imp IPA. TheJester (2543) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2012
355 mL bottle. Pretty much a by-the-numbers American Strong Ale. Not sure why it’s called an IIPA here; way too malty. Not that malty is a bad thing. Lots of caramel (debittered black patent malt?) and lots of hops - mostly citrus. Bitter finish and good body. fr5ed (89) - Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Hazy, dark red/amber. Sweet malty, yet hoppy aroma. Caramel, molasses, bitter fruit flavor. Very nice!!

Pours a dark amber color, nice carbonation, nice small foamy tan head which lasts awhile. Deep caramel malt aromas. T astes like there might be some rye in there too. The hops aren’t too big, but still have a pleasant lingering quality. A smooth beer. kenjohn (88) - Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Reddish-brown color with a thick, light-brown head. Aroma is almost like a Sweet Tart, as it is fruity yet has a nice bitter presence to it. Nice full mouthfeel. Flavor is very malty, with a rich caramel presence and hoppy finish. Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2012
From Beerilicious iphone app: detect a herb aroma in the hops. Red and clear in appearance with a frothy tan head. Light bitterness when it first hits your tongue only to finish very sour and bitter. Average duration. Body is medium/full with a thick and creamy texture. Containing lively carbonation and a bitter alcoholic finish. tkrjukoff (4334) - SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2012
