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.

Bomber. Pours a copper orange with an off white head and resin, pine aroma. Taste is bitterness up front, with resin, pine, hops, and caramel leading to a dry, bitter finish.

Pours deep amber into a snifter. Tan head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Sour caramel aromas. Thick with bitter sourdough, toffee and roasted nuts upfront turning to bitter resin and pith in the lasting finish. Perhaps this bottle has been on the shelf too long....

Un peu trop sucré mais reste un bière buvable. Bien houblonné mais rien pour se démarquer de ses semblables.

Palais est malté, cara et pâle/ambré, pas mal de belles notes d’agrumes, amertume moyenne avec un côté de pamplemousse et orange sanguine. Malt et léger caramel perdurent en fin de bouche.

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.
