4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle served in a Struise glass. Cloudy amber colour with a massive white head. Powerful aroma of abundant resinous hops. Taste is exactly as promised by the aroma - grassy, resinous hops dominate. Little malt presence which is how I like my IIPAs. Quite a severe bitterness which considering I had just finished a Hardcore IPA is a testament to its strength (I would be interested to know the IBU rating of this one).

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2016 Medium gold pour, a little cloudy, nice off white head. Stone fruit, grapefruit - big fruity aromas, light malt. Taste is jammy orangey malty goodness, quite bitter, sweetish, long very bitter finish. Like it a lot - for 9.3% it is very, very drinkable

Bottle to IPA glass
Bread, grapefruit, overripe apple, tropical fruit, and light spruce.
Pours a hazy amber with a 5 cm and growing off white head due to boisterous effervescence. The cashier in the store I bought it from knocked it over, but that was 6 hours ago. Taste is fruity and sweet with a strong bitterness that lasts.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 cl bottle purchased at Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Hazy gold color with lasting head. Aroma of mild citrus (peach, mango, grapefruit) Light citrus rind. Body has some sweet malt and marmalade base for the backbone. Hops are still here but a tad muted. Grapefruit peel, floral hop hints and light pine toward the finish. Extremely dry texture, like cotton place on your tongue.
Personal note: Imperial IPA rating number 200. For an undated bottle with having no idea of the age, this was really tasty!
