3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought sweet orange and grapefruit, kind of syrupy with some pine, grass, hints of caramel and toffee, touch of floral notes. Taste was a mix of sweet orange marmalade, grapefruit, pine, grass, some spice, hints of caramel, finishing bitter, dry.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle. Hazy light amber pour. Citrus and floral notes in the nose. Good hop to malt balance, maybe leaning a bit to the hop side. Citrus, yeast, and floral notes build with a lingering aggressive bitterness that doesn’t seem to go away. Not the cleanest IIPA but decent.

Smell is bright hops with a slight alcohol sniff. Hops smell like sweet flowery rather than evergreen. Nice creamy white head stays at top but doesn’t coat glass much. Color is a golden haze. Taste is lightly sweet. Very dry bitter aftertaste that lingers on tongue. The sourness also lingers on but shorter than bitterness. Body is light with soft carbonation. Finish is again bitter and long with some tart. My first Double IPA, is probably the longest lasting finish on the palate of any beers I have had so far. Would enjoy this style more if finish wasn’t as tongue numbing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp clear golden and light amber coloured body with a thinnish, soapy two centimetre tall head. Aroma of alcohol, resin, grapefruit, grass and some floral hop notes, all with a bit of sugar and some moderate yeast. Medium to Full-bodied; Deep grassy, herbal and resinous hop characteristics with a nice malt backbone, some subtle peach and pomelo sweetness, but quite a lot of bitterness noticeable from the hops. Aftertaste shows some good alcohol notes, a pleasant level of complexity and solid bitterness on the end without being too cloying. Overall, a surprisingly nice Imperial IPA that I wasn’t expecting much from the ratings here. My bottle shows a good deep bitterness without being pungent or showing too much alcohol. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$2.99 sampled at home in Washington on 22-February-2014.
