3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. Deep golden with small head. Medium malt body. Light pepperiness. Big hops, both citrus and piney. Quite a bit of booze to this, especially as it warms.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer has a bad aftertaste of alcohol. The aftertaste is similar to gin or vodka.
I paid $13 for a 4 pack that says hop rocket on the bottle.
I barely tasted any hops.
Poor effort in my professional opinion.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Dark amber-orange hybrid with a quickly dispersing, white head. The beer looks quite thick on the pour. Aroma is very hoppy, full of citrus, pine, with a light white pepper-esque finish. The first sip is very sharp, warm, and spicy. Almost like peppercorns thrown on top of heavy, dank, hot hop resins. Rubbing alcohol flavor as the beer warms. Some sweeter malts in the end with just a little bit of citrus... But you’re left with a scraping bitterness. Thick, gritty body. Very harsh and not good at concealing the alcohol. Not really my thing, here.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2013 Pours a deep amber, almost orange. Fluffy white head. Smells of citrus hops out front, followed by pine and some floral. Very balanced for an IPA. Taste follows the nose with a lingering sweet citrus floral finish. We?ll rounded, and not overpowering. Good imperial IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very nice IPA. Murky golden with a tight small head. Citrus/ pine on the nose. Very crisp going down. This would be greatly satisfying on a hot day.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy straw golden color with 1 finger head that lingers leaving heavy lacing. Somewhat sweet with moderate bitterness. Toasted malt, resinous hops, hint of caramel. Full body, softer, creamy carbonation which is a little different for the IPA body. Pretty well balanced. Long, smooth but bitter finish. This is a good imperial IPA. Unique

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Inconsistent hazy orange with white head. Aroma is pine, citrus and alcohol. Taste is Bitter citrus with unpleasant alcohol in the back. I don’t really like this beer.
