4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2013 Have had plenty of times, but have never reviewed it. Pours a hazy sunset orange color with a finger length head that goes away quickly. All their double ipas look the same, but that’s not a bad thing. Nice carbonation coming off the glass. Smells of resinous pine, fresh cut grass, apricot, little sweetness, breadiness quality to it, little orange. Very dry. Interesting smell. Taste starts with a smack in the face of abrasive bitterness. Get some apricot, orange, tons of grapefruit, pine, some grass in the front. Then the breadiness from the malts kick in in the middle and somewhat cut the bitterness. The sweetness from the dextrose sugar also comes in and somewhat balances it. Then on the back end, just loads of more abrasive bitterness, but accompanied with flavors of grapefruit, apricot, mango, pine, some grass, some floral notes as well. The sweetness lingers through the back end. The carbonation does wonders for this beer to at least try to clean the palate from the resinous hop qualities. Very dry finish. No detection of the 9% alcohol content, which has never been a problem for them. High medium body with a creamy and oily texture from the hop oils. If you are a hop head, you will love this beer. Very intense, yet complex.
The smell is spruce/ citrus hoppy. The appearance was a nice golden orange brown in color with a decent foamy head. Good taste with some sweetness included. Fizzy carbonation, not offensive just not optimal. Finish has a little bitterness, abrupt ending andrewje41 (4519) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - AUG 6, 2017
22 oz bottle poured. Shared by Tyler. Thanks! Double header baseball beers. Love it. A shiny golden orange pour with a patchy foam head. A ton of pineapple and mango like fruit on the nose here. Impressionable, and it hangs around. Flavor is a ton of bitter earthy hops, as well as some citrus fruit rind like bitter notes. Orange peel. Creamy reminder late. A bit of a warming finish to it, with a strong bitterness continuing. A fun imperial here. Tasty. commonmac (1367) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2017 On tap at Indiana’s beer mecca. Beautiful orange and golden color with minimal head but strong lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit and slight pine. Taste is pleasant sweetness underlining a traditional but amped up hoppy citrus and almost pineapple imperial IPA profile. End has resiny characteristics and leaves you wanting another one. This is one wolf worth hunting. Panzuriel (2429) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2017
Appearance: Deep honey amber. Hazy. Finger of tiny white bubbles.
Nose: subtly sweet malt with grassy, citrus and pine hops.
Taste: Again sweet with good hop bitters. Light caramel, grass, pine and orange zest.
Body: Medium to a touch thicker.
Parting thoughts: An above average IIPA. Sweeter than some. Good hop profile. Flavors blended very well.

Bottle brought back from Chicago and shared on Christmas Day. Pours a medium straw color, nose is pine and malty sweetness. One finger creamy white head that disappears rapidly. The taste is malty with a bit more hoppiness than I expected.
