3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber at home. How is this not classified as an imperial IPA? Burnt orange color, good lacing, rocky head--beautiful beer. Nice strong aroma, simple and to the point. Bitter sitter. I mean itís good, but the aftertaste is a little strong compared to the rest of the profile, and it doesnít offer much in the way of floral or herbal tastes, in my opinion, itís just sharp. Itís clean, though. There isnít much here that sets it apart from the crowd, it doesnít justify the hefty price tag.
