b33r (861) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Pale gold/yellow color with medium fluffy white head and nice thick lacing. Aroma has sharp citrus notes, pineapple, mango and some grassy/yeasty notes. Flavor is very citrusy with smooth bitterness, lemon, grass and faint spices. Crisp with a light mouthfeel and minimal alcohol presence. Very good!

Idiosynkrasie (6709) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2016
355ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, orangey golden colour with small to average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy and tropical fruity, hoppy aroma, notes of orange, lemon, grapefruit, hints of mango and passion fruit, some pineapple, a touch of liquorice and burnt rubber. Taste is moderately sweet caramel malty and slightly bitter, fruity hoppy, notes of pineapple and mandarine. Slightly artificial, jelly bear fruitiness, surprisingly light, completely hidden alcohol. Joins the same clean, if not aseptic, easy going kindergarten league as e.g. Ballast Points Sculpin. Alluring and boring at once.

thedm (5881) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2016
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The sharp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of biting hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.A nice strong hoppy beer for us hop heads! It really wakes up your palette.

mkel07 (5314) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2016
Bottle from Beer Cartel 061016. This is an easy drinking beer for an Imperial IPA and it hides the alcohol well. Not a big hop bomb like I was expecting but rather a more subtle low key beer.

angelkostvo (1182) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 22, 2016
Yellow colour, white head. Aroma of biscuits, diacetyl, light caramel, peach. Taste is light to medium bitter. Light body, slick texture, average carbonation.

Interesting aroma with mango and pineapple that also come back in the taste. One could expect a little more mouthfeel. Low carbonation.

ciocanelu (1611) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 8, 2016
Clear golden color with a bit of white foam. Aroma is not very intense on the hops, you mostly get a clean malt profile. Taste is more hoppy but overall its still a very clean beer with some earthy bitterness and a lager like malt profile. Body is on the lighter side and feels quite dry but the high ABV is hidden quite well. Overall its really drinkable DIPA buy it lacks some aromatic hops.

Bottle- pours yellow with a small white head. Aroma is fruit, pine, malt and some herb. Taste is hop bitterness upfront with a dry lingering finish.
