3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle. "Imperial IPA for Autism" edition. Pours a murky, copper/orange with a half finger, off-white head that thins to a small film quickly. Aroma is noticeable. Big notes of tropical fruits, bready malts, and a solid amount of resin.Taste is a solid bitter with a resiny, piney, slightly bready aftertaste.Medium body with a low-medium carbonation.Slick mouth feel. Resiny.Overall not bad. Probably could have been a fresher bottle but still good. Great aroma but a bit too slick and resiny on the texture for me. Would get again for sure to retry.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Doesn’t have as much punch as you’d think, but yet doesn’t contain the diversity of flavours you think it might.

One of these will be enough to get you going at 9%. Nicely hopped ale that competes well with Fat Tug and Moody Sociable

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2016 Amber in colour big head that disappears quickly. Grapefruit and malt on the nose and like others have said, some tobacco notes as well. Gotta say, this is one of the worst imperial IPAs I?ve had. I?m really not impressed with this. Pretty big disappointment, especially because it?s a 60 ml bottle.

Strong aroma of resin and some grapefruit. Taste is bitter and hoppy, balanced sweetness in the middle, finished with a resin character and alcohol. Good iipa well made.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is a little bit sweet and piny. There’s a bit of sweet pine and a bit of light fruit as well. A bit sweet and sticky on the back. Sticky finish with a bit of white pepper. A bit of a simple brew. Could have more hop character.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smell: very subdued, caramel, toffee, honey, malty. Taste: silky, rich mouth feel, sweet, med carbonation. Finish: tangerine, bitter/sweet/pine/hop/alcohol balance.
This is very balanced but I was expecting a more emphatic beer, given the high abv. (bottled 01/28/16, tasted 04/15/16)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2016 Despite not finding a date, well, oh, okay, here’s the rest poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a semi-dark red/burnt close to brown sort of color with a slim sort of semi-finger-ed sort of white messy head. Lacing was few and far between.
The smell started off with the sweet caramel/toffee malty backbone covering a slight sweet to dry sort of tobacco aftertaste and finish.
The taste was mostly the same with the same sort of dry/sweet almost "tobacco" sort of flavoring coming about.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a great sessionability about it.
Overall, damn nice beer that I would have again.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber, with a large creamy head. Aroma has notes of citrus, passion fruit, pine, and mango. Tasting notes include pine resin, chewy malt, bland orange, bitter finish. A little disappointed by the taste, not very clean on the palate. Bitterness is not front and center, the taste is not as complex as the nose would suggest. Decent.
