4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.33l bottle from myBrewerytap. Pours a clear golden-orange body with a nice heavy lacing dense just off-white head. Lots of fruity hops in this one. Actually smells a lot like a DIPA: heavy and thick on the malts and it has a nice leafy-hop character. A little bit of chocolate in this one as well. Quite delicious! My god that’s one smooth beer. Really comfortable in the mouth with strong yet balanced flavors of branchy-sweet-malts, leafy-hops, citrus, pine cones and berries. Lingering bitter finish that slowly slowly fades away and there is actually a hint of both licorice and flowers in the aftertaste. Really nice one this! Oh, it was a DIPA.. Well now, aint I an idiot.. 12.01.2012

Sample at the impromptu Kuhnhenn tasting on 01/17/2012: The beer is a slightly cloudy copper-orange color with a medium thick off-white head that recedes slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Citrusy hops and sweet malt in the nose. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character and notes of grapefruit and biscuit malt. The finish is hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a decent lacing white head. Huge grapefruit aroma with a nice sense of hops. It just springs from that mirky beer. Very light and crisp for an imperial, but the ending punches you in the mouth. Dry finish, and definitely a beer that will catch up to you in the long run.
