3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated hazy orange brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The deep aroma was hoppy. The semi-thick crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a nice copper with a white head. Aroma is a nice floral hop with an almost sweet berry. Flavor is again a nice sweet floral fruity hop. Not much in the way of malts but hops shine here.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
4 oz sampler at Ferguson. Pours a copper color with white head. Hoppy, grassy, garlic flavors. A touch boozy but decent imperial ipa.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ Ferguson. Pours a clear, burnt orange appearance with a creamy, light brown head. Rich grapefruit, a bit spicy, lightly resiny aroma. Some retro nasal burn. Slightly boozy, creamy, nice grapefruity flavor. Not bad.

Somewhat sour, tasted off. Pretty disappointed. Hot from alcohol. No where near hoppy enough.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap- Served a hazy copper color with a small head and good lacing. Aroma of citrus, bit of pine and sweet malt with fresh grain. Taste of citrus, roasted malt with a nice bitterness and a dry finish. Fairly medium body, crisp and refreshing. Nice balance. No hint of the alcohol. Nice beer, quite enjoyable. Well worth a try.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap from the brewery. Poured a hazy yellowish orange color. Pillow white head that left lacing on the glass as it went. Fresh hops, pine aroma. Flavor was pine, citrus and grass. Oily textuare. Not as bitter as I would have like, still very good and drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on tap at the brewpub. Appeared a light golden color with chill haze and moderate off-white head, good retention with nice lace. Aromas and flavors typical of true English IPA. The beer was plenty bitter, but nothing like some APAs. The hops were much more pronounced in the middle-ground flavor which I liked. I couldn’t really tell this was Imperial strength, I refuse to believe it was really 8% alchohol, but it was an overall well-balanced beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted 9/26/11. Growler from the Brewpub. The listing on the chalkboard listed this at 8.5% at time of purchase. Pours mildly hazy with a rosy, orange amber hue. Spiraling off white head. Aromas of bready malts and grapefruit rind. Sweet sugary citrus nose. Full bodied with a solid palate and nice, dry flavors. Medium roasted malts with a slightly nutty and fruity nuance. Nice mix of sweet, sticky and tart in the front. The finish is lingering with a mix of bitter and tart. The high gravity contributes to the sweet and sugary flavors, but the alcohol itself doesn’t really overtake the rest of the palate. The hops are bitter, floral and citrusy. Citrus rind and grapefruit. Grassy and mildly resinous. Tasty!
