COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial IPA brewed with blueberries. Brewing with a hill of blueberries composes a fruit flavor that lingers. Tropical hops play a sweet melody balanced by the bitterness of vows that were never to be.

Aroma is citrus, blueberries and sweet malts. The flavor is blueberries, citrus, grapefruit, malts, slightly coarse and a bitter/mildly sweet alcoholic finish.

12 ounce bottle from the Malt Shoppe, 9/10/16. Hazy purple, large foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of tart blueberry, pine, pale malt. The taste is piney hops, sweet blueberries, caramel. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness, decent balance, nice execution.

A unique amber colored ipa. Blueberry is not the first fruit I’d want in there, but as expected Tyranena did it very well, mixing sweet and tart blueberry and tropical sweet and bitter hops expertly.

madvike (3302) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 3, 2016
Bottle - Pours amber with a bit of ruby tint and TONS of floaties. Not appetizing in an IPA, but whatevs. Nose is pine and sharp booze a bunch of bready malt. Not a blueberry to be found. Taste is where it comes out--a bit of berry sweetness with dry breadiness, pine hops, and a sharp boozy bitterness. Slick and thin with medium carbonation. Too sharp, not tropical like it was billed, and the blueberry--yeah, not there. Disappointing.

Tmoney99 (15034) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Bottle from alexsdad06. Poured reddish copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy dark berry and hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium berry bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

muzzlehatch (4969) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2016
12 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, served at cellar temp in a pint glass with a label that can no longer be read. Big fluffy near-white head dies slowly, leaving chunky lacing above the copper, faintly hazy body....blueberries in the nose, sure, but mostly it’s citrus and tropical fruit - mango-lime is the closest I can get, and more acidic than sweet...in the mouth, it’s pretty nearly all IPA (I would definitely not have listed this as a fruit beer), with faint blueberry character, lots of acidity (I guess that’s the primary fruit component), some lightly caramelized malts and a burnt/toasted character that competes with the very strong bitterness at the hard finish...alcohol presence is noted throughout; it’s a bit much perhaps but not overpowering...body is very full and juicy, never syrupy (this is definitely drier than most IPAs of this strength that I’ve experienced), moderately to strongly carbonated. Kind of a beast and a bit of a challenge to drink but for whatever reason I’m really liking it at the moment.

12 oz bottle shared with drsordr. Pours a mostly clear golden amber color with save for the ample floaties throughout and a large off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale toasted malts, caramel, resin, tropical fruits, light blueberry that grows, some musty character, I liked this more as I continued to drink.

drsordr (2885) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pour hazy light copper with a snow storm of floaters. Moderate ecru head. Nose I was expecting bright fresh blueberries but more like the moldy berries at the bottom of the box. Dank and musty fruit with some tropical fruit hop and slightly powdery. Taste blueberry plays better with the hop tropical fruit flavors.

Headbanger (4023) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2016
12oz bottle 9/8/16 (Binny’s Naperville)-42° in Shaker-Pours light brown with a bunch of floaties. Aroma of hops, blueberries, and sweetness. Taste of the same with more hops on the back end. This full bodied brew is well blanced and is downright tasty.

Bottle thanks to Seth. Pours a cloudy copper with medium off white head. The aroma is berry, floral, citrus. Medium body, berry, sweet resin, light bitterness, very good.
