4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Review according to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 14C).
AROMA: very intense hop aroma, with floral, grassy and some resinous notes. Sweetness from malt in the background and some dried grape notes. Alcohol aroma masked by the hops.
APPEARANCE: deep golden amber with orange tint. Medium head retention with ivory color. A bit of haze presente maybe due to un-filtered dry-hopping.
TASTE: strong hop flavour with floral notes and very high bitterness Sweet malty flavour that balances the hop bitterness. Low fruitiness flavors to dried grapes. A very long and lingering bitterness in the aftertaste.
PALATE: smooth medium body with no astringency with moderate carbonation.
OVERALL: a very intense Imperial IPA with complex aromas and balanced. Recommended, but not for everyone.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour from a 12 oz. bottle. Consumed on 4-7-14. Scents of apricot, pine, caramel, yellow plum, and paprika. Alcohol is noticeable in the smell. Otherwise, the aroma is not as powerful as I expected. It smells like a single IPA in terms of the hops content. Pours a mostly clear, deep gold with some suspended particulate. Small amount of beige head. Excessively sweet taste: Marshmallow, ice wine. Spicy hoppiness and dry finish. Definitely the sweetness dominates the dryness in the flavor. Dry aftertaste. Full body; drinks slowly; filling. Heat in the throat from the alcohol. Oily and somewhat lively in the palate. Too filling and just too much overall palate-wise. Molotov Cocktail rises up, passes the point of quality, and descends into being not very good. Itís not awful, but itís also not enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Pizza Luce. Orange with a thin off-white skin on top. Peaches, honey, alcohol, fruity and soapy hops. Taste is sweet with a burst of soapy bitterness in the middle that dissipates and then finishes sweet with a mild alcohol burn. Heavier body with a sticky feel. Didnít seem like a typical IPA, but donít know what Iíd call it.
