Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, - AUG 12, 2010
Bottle at home. Clear deep orange pour, huge off-white head leaving loads of lacing. Aroma is very hoppy with loads of floral notes, grass, pine and resin. Intense and wonderful. Flavor is slightly sweet at first, then more hoppy bitterness all the way to the finish which has some of the more grassy elements. A tiny bit harsh, but mostly an awesome IIPA. Creamy texture, lively carbonation. Lingering bitterness.

Cimbasso (975) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2017
Sampled from a bottle. Amber colour with an off-white foaming head. Aromas of pine and grapefruit. This is an intensely hoppy beer with flavours of grapefruit, pine resin and grass. Good balance, but the hop flavour is so immediately noticeable that one tends not to notice the well-modulated caramel flavours of the malt. A very enjoyable Imperial IPA. Highly drinkable.

teddybeer (4038) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 29, 2017
Orangish color, white head with good retention, some lacing. Aroma has notes of orange zest with a good presence of resin hops. Flavor with a decent bitterness, very fruity maninly dominated by orange peel and grapefruit. Bittery finalwith some caramelish and peachy mouthfeel.

orbit (173) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2017
Nice IPA, but not very imperial, more a regular IPA actually. It's too crude and with not enough finesse to qualify amongst the premier league of IPAs

From cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. Playing A Foretold Affair. Very pleasant floral notes, with caramel. Abv well hidden. Nice feel. Its only downside is the lots of foam it generates

Cette très belle bière nous propose une robe ambrée troublée par les levures, accompagnée d’une belle mousse blanche à la fois crémeuse et persistante. Le nez, digne des plus grandes India Pale Ale, est très expressif : On y retrouve les arômes classiques des houblons américains Tomahawk et Simcoe, à savoir de belles notes florales accompagnées d’agrumes, notamment le pamplemousse. En bouche, l’attaque très sèche met parfaitement en avant l’aspect à la fois floral et agrumes de cette bière. L’amertume vient ensuite prendre le dessus pour s’imposer en fin de bouche et déboucher sur une très belle longueur. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
