3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
pours fuzzy amber, small white head
sweet hoppy smell
sugary, malty, hoppy taste . bit bitterness, but ’cornflake-taste ’overpowers the hops a bit .
rather high carbo
i like it, but it a bit weird to taste more malt than hops in a IIPA . To old, perhaps ? still awsome though !

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber with a scattered etching of off white foam and a loose, soapy rim. Mangos, peaches, cat piss, bits of pine and bubble gum. Flavor is sweet and bitter with good fruity undertones and plenty of sweet biscuit malt. There are notes of resin, pine, apple blossom, alcohol sharpness and pineapple. Medium bodied with easy, soft carb and an off dry finish. Nice beer – I’d drink this again.

on tap at the Provisions market, real nice orange hazey color with a huuuge foamy head, good hoppy aroma with some lingering citrus. Tastes somewhat nutty with a fairly bitter hop finish, some orange in the initial bite. What a wonderful IPA.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bomber from San Jose. Good aroma, nice pour with a good amount of head, but was very quick to dissipate. Pleasantly bitter on the tongue with good body and not overly hopped, but taste was a little grassy and underdeveloped/imbalanced. Worth having again but would enjoy more with a bit more sweetness to complement the hoppiness in the nose.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark orange in color. Normal IPA head. Smells slightly hoppy and alcoholic. Smooth taste. Not overpowering anything, which is surprising since it's not too hoppy and almost 10%. Pretty good IPA

11/18/13. 22oz bomber. Deep amber orange pour with a 2-finger khaki head that sticks and laces plentifully. Big rich hop aroma, lightly sweet, candied grapefruit, dank, some dishrag, just a hint of alcohol. Nice flavor, plenty of bitterness, balanced with plenty of sweetness, but not too much, lots of candied grapefruit, some citrus and pine, lingering bitterness. Tasty.

On tap. Poured a slightly cloudy cooper with off white head. Smell of pine. Very nice aroma and very nice taste. Was surpised as the more I drank it the more I liked it. wanted to order a second but I had to go.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (750ml): clear, medium copper. Moderate persistent head. Floral, pine spice and tropical. Mango. Slight resin. Huge lift. Malt but hop dominated. Slightly sweet. Not sour. Moderate to high bitterness. Rich. Long and densely flavored. Classic West Coast Imperial IPA. Over the top. This is another show beer to collect and not something to drink.
