3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a slightly hazy orange/bronze with a nice white head on top. Aroma was pleasant citrus and grapefruit nose. Had a pretty smooth hoppy flavor however it was pretty subdued for being considered an Imperial. I guess it’s just for the higher alcohol content. Somewhat sweet with a medium body and smooth creamy mouthfeel. Actually a really good brew if not for me expecting to have a little more flavor and hope bite.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
resinator seasonal @ 8.2% abv... wasn’t really sure of the style until now. it makes sense, though... beautiful color like toasty caramel before the cream is added. off white head and a small amount of lace. lots of fruity hops in the aroma remind me of fruit loops cereal... orange, pineapple, pink grapefruit, flowers, sweet grains, caramel/toffee and coriander. the flavor is quite similar with a dry lightly resinous bitter finish. skunky and dirty earthy hops in the aftertaste. medium body with a rich mouth feel yet crisp...
