Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Tap at brewpub May 2012-This beer is now called Bristol Imperial IPA-same ABV and IBU count. pours bright orange with a rocky soapy white head with decent lacing. nose is tropical as hell-mostly mangos, tangerines and passionfruit. smells sweet! flavors do not match the nose at all-wow this is a resin bomb! prickling puckering bitterns all the way through with very little malt to sweeten it up, only on the initial taste do you get any sweet malts. body is somewhat lite yet refreshing for this style. I quite my ratings "damn this has to be 100 ibus very strong resin pinecone finish with spruise like qualities as well" . I cant fault this beer its very well made however, its somewhat of a challenge for me since its so harsh on the hop profile.

BeerandBlues2 (10065) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Draught at brewery. Pours ruby-copper with a medium sized frothy tan head and lined lacing. Aroma is huge fragrant floral citrus, grapefruit hops with trace malt (meal). Heavy bitter and moderate acidic rind, grapefruit hop flavor, medium sweetness and a lasting hop flavor. Medium bodied and fizzy, clean palate.

Draft at brewery. This IPA deosn’t really smell too good and it really isn’t that wonderful in taste either. While it has a lot of hops, it tastes funky, as if there is bad malts or something. Not as good as their regular IPA.

Aubrey (3451) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2006
Draft at brewery: Medium copper with a really nice and lasting head. Very nice texture -- not too thick and not too thin. Rich and roasty with a complementing caramel sweetness. Fruity, aromatic hops, with notes of sweetened grapefruit and spruce tips. Bitterness level was very balancing. Overall, I thought it was a very tasty beer. A little beefier than your typical IPA, but it was still clean enough to quaff easily, and it doesn’t put you out like a double.
