Dark amber color with little head. Earthy sweet aroma. Sweet taste. Mild hoppyness. Actually mild flavor in general. It’s ok. Was expecting more from this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on draught at the Blue Moon bar in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear golden pale amber with a thick creamy ivory colored head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some thick lacing. Aroma of light biscuit malt, earthy hops and a touch of citrus. Taste is full bodied (and then some), soft carbonation with flavors of caramel malt, some biscuit like malt, earth hops and a touch of grapefruit. Finish is semi-sweet with a weedy and citrus hop aftertaste that lingers for about three minutes. Just as thick and chewy as the Simcoe version.

Draft. Enjoying this more than the S one but who knwos maybe freshness is a factor. The malt extremeties are a bit calmer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper pour with a tall thick white head and some nice lacing. Big sweet caramel aroma lots of fruit grapefruit and a hint of strawberry along with a touch of alcohol. Huge thick mouth feel creamy swallow and warms the way down revelaing that big ABV. Flavor is sweet a little cereal notes and sine dark fruit bits with a lightly bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark orange-red pour. Very sweet aroma with lots of caramel and maltiness. Taste comes through with plenty of that honey sweetness. Citrus peel, other tropical fruits, and almost a slight heat are present as well. Smooth, oily, and full bodied. Interesting (and sweet) imperial IPA.
