4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served a bit too cold with a creamy, thick, off- white head and a ton of lace. Color is a clear copper amber. Aroma is fain (bad nose on my part) but does have a good hop & malt character. Flavor’s much stronger than nose, slightly more bitter than sweet up front, then more bitter and some tang. Body is good tho carbonation a bit soft. Finish is heavy bitter and long with some booze. Decent beer.

Great hop aroma and the hop bitterness you’d expect form an Imperial IPA. Not so hoppy it melts off your tastebuds though - subtle malty balance.

Golden color out of the tap with the barest of off white heads. Vague nose with some resin. This is pretty subtle for a IIPA, with some caramel sweetness, lots of fruit and berries with a long hop resin finish.

Hoppy, but not an overload, I enjoyed, crisp and citrusy. If it had more of a finished hop I would rate it higher.
