Had this guy on tap at Alibi Room a few months...going off of hadnwritten notes. A gorgeous bright orange pour with a flitting pale yellow head. The nose has huge floral and resinous hops bursting with grapefruits. A bit sweet up front but as it opens, a gorgeous floral and resinous smack of hops take over. The finish is sticky and sweaty with a lignering hop flavour in the aftertaste. Just exceptional!

Appearance has a nice copper amber color supporting a steady healthy head with less than fair lace. Smell has a nice balance of caramel malt and citrusy hops. Taste is big on the grapefruit piney hops, but not the malt backbone I expected for more of a balance having a slight saline note. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Not a bad Imperial, had better though.

Bomer poured a clear golden amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of straw, earthiness, grapefruit, pine and light mint. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavorsof straw, grapefruit, pine, light lemon zest and a hint of mint with a smooth dry bitter lingering grapefruit finish.

Lubiere (9788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2012
A hazed golden DIPA with a thin creamy lacing light mocha head. In aroma, a great classic IPA with loads of piney and floral hops, citrus pulp. In mouth, a nice citrus pulp with light floral hops, light alcohol warmth, a bit on the light side, but good. On tap at Courtyard Marriott Portland, Oct. 5 2012.

This bottled brew from a rating party poured a small sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated hazy orange colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was musty and malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of citrus hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Hazy golden beer with a thin off white head. Big hop resin nose. Thick hop resin taste with lots of grapefruit citrus. Okay IIPA.

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 18, 2012
18/10/2012 Bir&Fud Bottega (500ml bottle). Ambrata, limpida, bellissima schiuma bianco sporca, molto compatta e persistente. Al naso esplosiva, freschissima, agrumata ed erbacea, con note di malto ben percettibili. In bocca molto amara, ma comunque bilanciata con il malto, sebbene non caramellata stucchevole, finale molto lungo, intenso. Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta. Una gran bella birra!

Bottle. BIg strong head on dark orangey beer. strong woody spice hop nose and a bit of alcohol promises a fight across the palate but will there be joy? Dirty yeasty peppery hop beer wants to be a Saison not an IPA or IIPA. Like a $20 hooker in a back alley. FU long time Charlie. Finish does not taste like you need to finish it. Not sure I have had an IPA or IIPA that needed to settle before a careful pouring.
