3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle. Barely clear, faint, yellow-ish golden colour with small thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, snow-white head. Citrusy and piney hoppy aroma is condensed like astronaut nutrition, only some sugary and zesty lemon flavours evade this black hole’s almond malty gravity centre’s grasp. Taste is pungent bitter hoppy, citrusy, minimally chalky and zesty lemon notes; full-bodied, forthright, well set up - but tolerable without garter.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits into a pint glass. Light orange and pretty clear appearance with a fluffy white head and sticky lacing. Aroma of musty hop resin, bread, earthy yeast, pine, floral notes, light citrus fruits and light herbs. Similar flavor, piney, resinous and bitter, a little unpleasant. Medium plus body with a light sweet finish. Possibly a little dated and kind of hard to drink. Pairing: Widespread Panic - Hatfield, Knocking ’Round The Zoo, from 09/10/92, Monsoons, Flagstaff, AZ

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crisp, slightly hazy golden and honey coloured body with a nice, dense, three centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of tropical and hybrid hops with a good dose of biscuits and malt right behind. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong hoppy flavour at first with resin, pineapple, passionfruit, guava, flowers and a little malt as well noticeable. Aftertaste is a good balance between sweet, hoppy and malty with perhaps more of the finish showing sugar qualities rather than hops. Overall, a nice beer that shows quite nicely and mellow, especially considering the alcohol. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 05-July-2015 for US$3,99 sampled at home in Washington on 20-October-2015.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bomber. Clear orange yellow, firm white foam settles and mostly lasts. Aroma of forest fruity hop, faintly floral. Initially bitter citric forest fruit taste, softens quickly, becomes more juicy tropical fruity, leaner caramel malts, very sneaky ABV, but pretty easy for an Impy. Aveage carbonation, medium bodied, well hopped. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours clear straw gold with a big creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet fruity piney resiny hops over some bready malts.
The flavor is biscuity malt with some sweet fruit and bitter tarry floral resiny hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall, an OK DIPA.
