3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
"a nice enough dbl ipa that would’ve done better not being stacked up against the Big Boys. not a hop monster, but still well hopped and bitter. medium bodied and thickish. fresh hop aroma, a little more malt heavy flavor profile."

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ale Alpharetta. Not sure this was that fresh, actually notes indicate a year old almost. Taste was old malts, but in a clean way. Caramel, faded piney hops with a linger bitter finish. Would have certainly been better with some freshness.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample at Ale Alpharetta. Pours light yellow, with a small, off-white head. The aroma is floral hops, resin, and butterscotch. Very bitter, but with a nice, malty sweetness. Medium body, with a thin, astringent, chalky, and grainy mouthfeel, that somehow ends up being very pleasant. This is an over-age IIPA that’s aged surprisingly well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Aces & Ales in Las Vegas. Pours a clear pale amber color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of earthy hops, pine and roast malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub, Vegas. Light amber, hazy, with a thick off-white head. Surprisingly, this is not nearly as hoppy as the Dirty Dog IPA. Given the freshness and abundance of hops in the regular IPA, I had high expectations for this imperial version. I was very disappointed. Not that this beer was bad, just woefully underhopped compared to the excellent Dirty Dog. Oh well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 ounce bottle at Freakin Frog. Owner thought this was special and we would want it. Overpriced, of course. Hoppy. Pine. Grapefruit. Best of the Las Vegas beers I had.

Pale golden from the tap with a thin white foam. Big aroma of tangerine and grapefruit. Strong piney bitterness with moderate body. Finish is more hop bitters and dryness. Pretty nice.
