Really solid. A bit more malty and bitter and pine-hop influenced than their other big ipa. Still, a really lovely beer.

sonnycheeba (5311) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 6, 2016
Tap at brewery. Pours hazy orange/amber. Aroma is grassy and floral hops, caramel malt, faint booze, and faint citrus. Flavor is hop forward with nice citrus and grassy notes with some malt body and sweetness to balance things prior to the dry finish with a touch of spicy booze lingering. Medium body.

HeadyDE (765) - Delaware, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle pour..aroma is dominated by bready..dough malt sweetness..not much else..mouthfeel and taste follows suit..kind of like a 1 trick pony here, not my cup of tea for a double as too much malt presence and not enough hop essence..

Draft. Little aroma. Ruby-caramel color with thick lace. Flavors are strikingly mild for a DIPA but include toasted pine nuts, some orange and toast crust. Maybe some honey on the finish. A little bit muddled, but seems close.

jgb9348 (5797) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Rich, hazy orange and copper coloured body with a nice tan head, only about a centimetre tall. Aroma of pungent tropical fruits, hops (of course), alcohol and a nice rich malt backbone. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong hoppy flavour at first, tropical fruits, light pine, strong syrupy maltiness and a rich deep alcohol note at the end. Aftertaste shows a very well-balanced hoppy flavour with tropical fruits, a touch of sugars and a nice complexity at the end. Overall, a surprisingly well-balanced, robust Imperial IPA with a smooth hoppy flavour at the end - great, to be honest. I sampled this pint on draught for US$7,00 at TJ Stones in Alexandria, Virginia on 28-August-2015.
