Tasted on tap at Walking Man. A great imperial IPA. Not overpowering in the hops or alcohol taste. Just a splendid mix of bittering and flavoring hops.
Cloudy amber full tan head. Nice sweetish hop/malt initial taste. Long evolving long lasting but finish a bit bitter on the edge of the tongue.

Total home run for Walking Man. Never before had a high ABV double/imperial IPA that was so well balanced and drinkable. No alcohol burn, no throat scraping hoppiness - just great flavor and mouthfeel - blissful EXPERIENCE! Thanks Stevenson WA for creating this.

Clear golden pour with a bubbly white foam, spotty lacing. Nose is tangerine, pineapple, essentially the tropics in a blender. Mouthfeel crisp, mild alcohol warmth, low-medium carbonation. Taste is sweet tropical notes with the spicy tang and hoppy bite. Wicked. Brentv (672) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 1, 2016
On tap at ABV Pub in Hillsboro, OR. Hazy orange/copper pour with a small white head. Fruity aroma. Flavors of orange and mango and other citrus. A nicely malty and sweet IPA with lots of hops and flavor. Medium full mouthfeel.

Bottle: Poured a copper with off white head. Aroma is malty. Taste is malty with some hops. Gets some bonus for the labeling on this one, but not much else here. fiulijn (20515) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2015

Hazy amber color with medium head. The strong malty character of this beer and medium sweetness level, although both lovely, label this as an old school IIPA; the hops are strong, more resiny than else, a bit orangey too; the malts also have a mild biscuity note. The caramel still dominates the final. The alcohol is well conceived.
Excellent powerful beer, I wouldn’t drink more than a glass of it per session though.

Bottle shared with Yanick. Pours orange gold white head - Nose/taste of orange peel, caramel malt, lemon peel, pine and resin - medium body. jsnicholas (628) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2015
Bottle (22oz $5.50) Hazy golden with smallish white head that disappears. Somewhat sweet, malty, but turns much more bitter than I like. The bitterness is not sudden, but builds and lingers and ends up tasting metallic. Not balanced IMHO.
