3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big IPA with loads of hops and bitter citrus. Very full and lingering with that grapefruit finish. Get the cheese curds to go with the brew, they go together well.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a shadowy gold with a brilliant white head of tightly packed bubbles (Brussels Lace and a rare [from me] five for appearance). Potent although simple aroma profile: hay, grass, cheese, and alcohol. The taste is actually incredibly balanced... I’m surprised for some reason. Nice but unremarkable palate. Would buy again. Recommended.

"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."

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.
