3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear gold into a tulip. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving soapy spiders. Lemon joy and mild scallion aromas. Thick with mango and papaya tort upfront turning to sweet resin, and unfortunate lemon cleanser that dominates the lasting finish as it warms

Lightly hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry with good fine carbonation. Smooth pale malts, light creamy sweetness. Hops are pithy and mildly spicy. Modest tropical fruits underneath light pine. Semi dry finish. Hop spicy linger. This bottle is at least 6 months old so it has held up well.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Foundry. A solid Imperial. Spicy hop and citrus aromas lead to a fairly full bodied brew, fruity and citrusy with an alcohol underbody. Itís not complex, itís not bitter and it is very drinkable. One more 4 star member of a very large club.

Iím a sucker for Mosaic hops. This bottle was sent to me in a trade, bottled on 11/15 /15. Itís a muted version of its glorious self, Iím sure, so Iíll rate it accordingly.
