3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Total Wine, Durham. Another TW only presence in NC, and a reasonably welcome one. The label suggests that this is an "imperial amber ale." True nuff in appearance, I suppose, though the aggressive aroma is closer to the ASA designation on this site. Faintly cloudy, nose of citrus rind and leafy bitterness along with sharp resin and some sweet syrup. If that suggests a bunch of different elements clashing, that’s not too far off. It’s not without merit entirely, but there are tons of well-done malt/hop co-bombs out there and this one just seemed to bully you about with undeveloped bitter intentions.

Flavour is too sweet, sugar, caramel, malty, firm pine and grapefruit hoppy finish with a load of caramel sweetness. Medium to fullbodied. Unbalanced, typical sweet American DIPA imo.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2012 On tap @ the Holy Grail.
Clear amber pour with a decent amount of white head. Aromas of pine and caramel malt with a bit of toffee - flavor is citrus and caramel. A bit thin and one dimensional for my taste.
