Bottle sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Grapefruit up front. Mellows into citrus and caramel on the finish. Boozy as it warms. Pretty darn good GTPpilot (20) - the valley, Connecticut, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Head starts off with large quantity of frothy foam from large bottle. Dissipates quickly with lots of lace. Very powerful malt and hop flavor with plenty of warming booze quality. jkwalking05 (4745) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2013

Flawless copper color. Thin lacey white head. Funky, hoppy danky aroma. Staunch citrus and pine flavor. Medium body. Tons of flavor and even more smoothness. Like the 471 but maybe better, minus the lack of head. viyh (90) - San Luis Obispo, California, USA - OCT 27, 2013
This is one of the better IPAs that I’ve ever had. Quite bitter and the most piney of aromas. Rich, deep amber colored, super thick head, and tasty, tasty, tasty! blankboy (7884) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
My bottle [750ml] shared with GregClow, mds, jerc & mabel. Pours orange-amber with a large lasting fluffy off-white head. Nice hoppy aroma with lots of grapefruit. As it warms the aroma gets boozier. Flavour: Whoa that’s boozy, along with resiny & citrusy hops, caramel malt and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good but not as good as expected. thicksuds (451) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Definitely a double IPA living up to the imperial billing, I would say more of an imperial IPA than a double. Real rich, hops are nice, thicker than most double IPAs, if you like them thick and chunky this is for you. Pretty good but not my favorite....probably wouldn’t revisit. jercraigs (11087) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2013
2013-10-10.Crisp orange amber body with a large foamy beige head and lace. Aroma is hoppy, with a lightly musty resiny character. Flavour is fairly bitter up front but the base also has a good amount of sweetness to it. Muddled citrus notes and resiny hops throughout. Average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Enjoyable.
