3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Ray’s, Wauwautosa WI, Jan ’11. $3 single. Pours light amber color with definite copper in the center of the glass. The usual sudsy IPA head. Smell is simply warm with those Pacific hops wafting to my nose. Taste is a fine mix of slightly syrupy, chewy crystal malts and resiny IIPA hops. Just enough alcohol in the mix to make me warm. Despite the thick malts, it still wants to go down nice and quickly. Hops may have mellowed a bit into a resiny melange with whisps of pineapple and pine. Plus a somewhat strong bitter aftertaste in back of the mouth.

9/18/2010. From bottle. Aromas of malt, hops, caramel, citrus and spice. Some alcohol burn, but good balance of flavors and finish. Not bad at all.

Very strong tasting IPA. Lots of malt, hops and fruits. Nice beer, but it could have been a bit more balanced.

bottle, at klub malych pivovaru. bright orange with a thin head; aroma of cookie dough and pine; not overly bitter for a double ipa but the better for it, revealing some bready malt, pine, grapefruit and a really clean but not dull character

Bottle split at JF’s, cheers James, 19/07/13. Labelled as ’AV - Imperial IPA’.
Very lightly hazed golden amber with a decent sized off white head that retains well.
Nose is caramel malt forward, hops, bitter orange, light pine.

Full end of medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish with hop bitterness.
