3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours opaque amber with a small yellow head. Quite bubbly and leaves some sticky lacing down the glass. Nose shows some nice toffee backing very vibrant hops. Passionfruit and mango are very prominent. A light nutty tone behind it all. Great mix of mixd nuts, toffee and vibrant and tropical hops. A lengthy, citric bitterness on the finish. Great beer

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 mL bottle. Smells like an ASA. Tastes like an ASA. Why’d they call it an "imperial amber?" Good, but missing something. More mid-boil hops maybe. Perhaps a little debittered black malt. Good, though.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared thanks to Dmac. Pours out a nice reddish amber color with a small white head. Aroma is of oranges, light sweet citrus and some sweet malty notes in there also. Taste is a good dose of juicy citrus hops, light grainy malts, more citrus, light floral notes, some sweet fruits, with a punch of hops and a light alcohol touch on the finish. Solid brew.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a murky brown with a dry appearance. The head pours 2 inches, big, bubbly tan but settles to 3/8" and lasts for the drink. The lacing is strong. The aroma is straight hops. The flavor is just like an imperial IPA. Not sure why they’re calling this an imperial brown, save for a little malty sweetness that lingers in the finish. This beer is infinitely enjoyable. You would enjoy it if you went and got one, now.

On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a cloudy amber with a medium creamy beige head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is floral hops and pine. Thick mouthfeel with a strong hop bite and grapefruit with a long lasting bitter finish. Alcohol present but not overpowering a good American strong ale from Clown Shoes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep coppery, almost the same color as the glass bottle, with 2-finger clingy off-white head. Nose is earthy caramel malt, resiny hops, pine, definite funky and feety Simcoe notes. Tastes very bitter, with a big caramel malt flavor, big resiny hops, some fruit. This one is like an imperial ESB.
