3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Clear golden body with a diminishing white head. Strong fruity aroma, peaches, grapefruit and pine with malt. Flavor is mainly fruity and bitter on a nice malty background. The alcohol is well integrated and so goes for the rest of the flavors, a fine and well balanced IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Houston Flying Saucer. A clear and light gold-orange color with a small head and some small lacing. The nose is strongly tangy and citrusy with some sweet crystal malt. Flavor is heavy on the crystal malts; rich and a little bit spicy. Soft mandarin orange-like hops are present throughout and especially notable in the finish. A sweet beer, no doubt, but very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
10 oz. goblet at the Draught House- served a transparent light caramel/brown color, medium carbonation, white ring around the glass for a head. Aroma of hops by the tractor trailer load, consisting of pine and grapefruit. Hits the mouth with a light medium body, caramel malt is slightly restrained, mild hop wave in the middle, finish is slightly acidic and sweet at the same time. Sort of run of the mill for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
on tap. Orange/amber pour with a cream head that dissipates to a ring fast. Huge fresh florals, very fruity, slight tingle of sweetness. Great palate, seems more like an apa with the thickness and how smooth it is, fresh sticky fruity hops and a great finish.

On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a clear amber with a small frothy white head that diminshes quickly. The aroma is a light hop and grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel with a dry hop with caramel and a nice smooth finish. Hides the alcohol well making it easy to drink. A very good IIPA from Brooklyn.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Taco Mac. Clear orange pour. Caramel and honey in the nose along with piney evergreen hops. Bready malt flavor with pungent but amazingly balanced evergreen burst of hops. Crackery balanaced hoppy finish with enough residual sweetness, body, and blast of hops to give the definite "imperial" impression but with well-hidden alcohol. A really nice double IPA.
