Pours an orangey amber with white head. Weedy, citrusy aroma. Big grapefruit and pine hop character with just enough malt sweetness to balance it out. Good.

Nice bronze color. Piney hop aroma. Taste is like a dozen other iipas, but done very well. Nice example of an Imperial done right.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Watering Hole. Clear amber colour, small off white head. Aroma not so much, light tropical fruit, bit of citrus. Quite weak but not unpleasant. Taste has expected bitterness, quite subtle though. Bit of orange at the end, and a bitter finish. Grapefruit. Quite drinkable. Not that exciting though. Lost something on the way over maybe.

Sample on tap at beer club. Light amber color. Sweet on the nose, and nicely bittered on the tongue. Nice one, but Iíd prefer it with more malts.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear amber with pillowy cream head. Aroma is grapefruit and citrus hops with a slightly biscuity malt. Taste is vibrantly bitter with loads of grapefruit, ample malt to balance it out though. Finish is exceedingly balanced with a good lingering hop bite. Excellent.
