3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Didn’t see this as an DIPA when I was drinking it. Floral aroma, somewhat murky, giving way to vegetal flavors. Malty, caramelly body, making it seem less than a DIPA and more like an Imperial Oktoberfest. Not satisfying. (bottle, 2013 Ale Jail festival, St. Paul, MN)

Bottle. Hazy golden amber color, huge fluffy cream colored head with good retention. Aroma of spiced caramel candy and pine resin. Taste is bitter pine resin and maple syrup. Interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
24 oz. bottle. It pours a nice golden color with a thick and creamy white head. The aroma is very nice with lots of fresh tropical fruit, mostly pineapple and papaya with a touch of more dense piney hops. The flavor is mildly sweet and fruity with more pineapple and strong alcohol that leaves some harsh phenols in the finish. This tastes like it had an aggressive fermentation maybe on the warmer side. Not bad though. It’s nice that it was light on the caramel malt.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Central Market in San Antonio, Texas.
The beer is transparent and orange with an inch of white head and ample effervescence. The aroma brings dank hops, pine, citrus, alcohol, floral notes. Bold flavor of juicy hops and alcohol. Medium to full bodied for the style. Sufficient bitterness with lingering citrus and hops. Solid.

My first drink, around 9:10pm on a Saturday Night.
the pour was sexy. Enough head so that the last half oz or so wouldnt fit in my glass. My first sip was to finish the bottle, when it hit my tongue it was a bit shocking. It had a really awesome flavor profile that changed dramatically from the first to the second sip. It has some heat, it being 9% abv probably has something to do with it. But the overall hoppiness was very much on target for an Imperial. Plenty of nose, but not crazy overpowering. I am pretty impressed, you could have told me it was a West Coast IPA and believed you. Good job Brazil!
