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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber with a sweet new label sticker. Clear copper with a thin head. Stone fruit aromas, hop forward. A light dry classic IPA, with a creamy sweet quality. The dry character isn’t over the top and lingers on the back of the palate. This is a seriously good beer, enjoyed it to the last sip.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
An upped alcohol and bitterness and you’d expect from the regular IPA though the standard IPA is just a bit better in terms of flavor.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is a big blast of hops. Pretty standard IIPA as far as flavours go, a nice hop burn and some citrus notes. Well balanced with the abv & malts.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours an almost red color with little to no head. Aromas of spruce and citrus with caramel candy thrown in there. Taste is bitter and sweet. Flavors of sticky tropical fruit, raw sugar, pine sap. I’d guess the FG on this is pretty high. Tons of residual sugar trying its best to mask the alcohol, which it does, but ends up being a bitter sugar bomb. So thick and cummy. Medium bitterness, some tropical hop juice but in the end just too sticky sweet. Fuck Bon Jovi and Bryan Adams.

Tap at the 2014 OBF. Pours clear copper with an off-white head. Aroma of lots of malt and hops. Full bodied. Flavor is lots of malt and lots of hops. Guessing floral and fruit hop. Very strong flavors. Finishes malty and bitter. Balanced? Tasty!
