3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2015 Very malt forward IPA with a significant caramel character. Hops were faded and piney. I think that I may have an old bottle, note to rerate when I get a known fresh bottle. My bottle clearly says the ABV is 6.5% Not an imperial by a longshot--feedback sent

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Ori. Clear amber with a big head. Smell of stale green hops and caramel. Sweet, fruity and quite malty, boozy with strong bitterness. Medium bodied, syrupy. Too old and heavy for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a deep gold with a high, fine-grained, incredibly lacy off-white head. Nose is grapefruit, fresh bread, funk, light floral notes, a touch of smoke, and a little catbox. Hops bitterness and juicy grapefruit up front, with a creamy, substantial texture; great flavor, with some spiciness and crisp biscuit following. Really tasty, and has a lot of layers opening as it moves across the palate. Finish is astringent, refreshing, and clean. Nicely done.
