3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
8%ABV. Imperial IPA
Tapped out a beautiful deep amber with a thin head of white pearly foam.
The nose is full or lemon blossomy type citrus brightness. There is some lemon zest, but not like a weissbier and more along the lines of a citra hop.
There is pretty active carbonation.
Mouthfeel is heavy and almost syrupy. There is just enough carbonation to keep this drinkable and enjoyable, but not for long. You’re quickly reminded of all the good quality hops that they invested in bringing you this brew. There are nice toasty flavor notes and there is some residual brightness in the way of fresh fruit, especially plums, apples and pears.
The finish is quite clean. No cloying flavors. You’re just kinda left in a cloud of beery cheer.
Despite all this, I could not get past the syrupy cling and will have to leave this off my favorites list. This fact alone should not detract from the fact that this was a very admirable collaborative effort and I’m all for synergy!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle into tulip. Minneapolis.
Pours golden orange and medium cloudy. Very little head.
Aroma is a little musty, floral, and a little citrusy. Alcohol. A little more muted than expected.
Taste is sweet with a subtle bitterness underneath. Not overwhelming.
Body is medium-full. Longer pleasant finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 500ml bottle on 27/6/2015 (batch nr 881, BB 09/2016) Pours a light golden with a small head. The aroma is very floral and fruity - orange,lemon and lychee. It’s very fruit forward flavour wise as well, with lots of sweet citrus and peach. There’s a big dash of hops, featuring more lemon and grapefruit. Medium bodied with average carbonation. All up, this is a very quaffable, nicely balanced IPA. Wouldn’t necessarily pick it as a double, as it almost has a summery, quenching character to it.
