Cloudy amber beer with a cream white head that quickly dies away. Soft beer. Hops dominate but they are very civilised and not bitter. Flavour tends towards a marmaladey orange. Some creamy malt as well. Low carbonation. Very easy drinking and satisfying beer.

Tasted at the Light Ales/Lagers Tasting in Chicago. Bright copper. Aroma: chewy caramel, some florals, slight almond notes. Big malt palate - pale, sticky, and syrupy. Some apricot. Long flavours of malts, but nothing special. Reminds of Lee's Harvest Ale, which isn't really my bag.

Good looking bomber bottle. Hazzy golden color with a medium white head that diminished quickly. Full aroma of citrus, malt and hops. Medium body with smooth texture. Great complex flavor with a long finish with a small alcohol bite at the very end. Gone but will be remembered.

I just had a bottle Ive been aging in my cellar.Ten is even better with a little age. The hop aroma and flavor is still there, but is more balanced than when it was fresh.

(RBSG2003): Clear amber with minimal off-white head. Aroma is sweet, alcohol, syrupy, malty and moppy (floral and lots more). Taste is sweet, alcohol, syrupy, but not much otherwise. Seems like some of the flavors cancel each other out. Nice warming swallow.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22-oz. bottle from Kevin. Pours hazy, pumpkin flesh orange, with a patchy off-white head of film, lined lacing lazily forms from the edgy remnants of the head. Aroma is malt (cookie) and sweet, candied sugars, caramel and perfumey, fruity hops, floral nose. Moderately bitter and a drying acidity, citrus rind hops are faint but detectable, caramel sugared malt, medium sweetness then finishes tart, fizzy and spicy. Medium bodied and warm, spicy palate.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at From The Vine monthly beer tasting Aug 4th, 2003: This is a good way to celebrate - and Imperial IPA! Apricot-colored with a medium thin off-white head and fair lacing. The aroma is well-hopped and heady. Rich-bodied with a strong hops presence, along with a little malt, spice and alcohol. The finish is long and nicely bitter. While not as complex as you may be led to believe, this is still a good beer.
