3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very small sized head of foamy with a frothy top white colored bubbles that were and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent orange colored body and a very good lacing. The aroma was hoppy malty and orange peel. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of orange peel citrus crisp hops and bread dough. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Churchkey. Mostly clear orange pour, smallish bubbly white head. Nose and flavor bring clementine, lemongrass, and hints of pine, but nothing too distinctive. Nice flavorful IPA with good malt balance and above average body, but definitely not a stunner.

750 from Capone’s. Poured dark straw with off-white head. Nose was yeasty caramel malt, hops, mild fruit. Tasted like a Belgian IPA to me , with yeasty caramel malt up front, and tart mildly fruity hops at mid-palate.

Beautiful golden beer with perfect head. Very clean and crisp as expected from Dogfish and Sierra Nevada. Nose is very sweet, almost like cotton candy with sweet melon dominating. Melon is so strong in the flavor, I didn't even know this was possible in a beer. I guess that's the #644 hops. It begins almost sickeningly sweet, gushing with melon flavor, but crisp hop bite and more typical citrus flavors from the Bravo come through just in time to finish it off. Sweet melon notes linger for a while. Very much worth a try for how unique it is although a too sweet for me to keep coming back to. I'll be very interested to see what can be done with #644 in the future.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a very pretty golden copperish color with nice big frothy head. Aroma is a bit stale, not what I like from my IPA. Must be the wheat. Hops are there and slightly piney and a little floral. Flavor is very floral with some bitterness up front. A little candy sweetness fades into a mix of dry wheaty funk and light fruits (pear? White grape? Light to medium mouthfeel with light to medium carbonation. Decent beer, but I was hoping for more from this collab.

Nice hard hoppiness. Wheat almost rye bread. Earthy. Good stuff.

Really liked this one. Aroma is nondescript hops, not in a bad way, in a good way. Lots of head. Flavor is bitter throughout, lots of pine and citrus (grapefruit). Malt backbone holds up well to the bitterness. All in all a great Imperial IPA.
