3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle poured into a Snifter at 40°. Color is a bright gold with good carbonation and a thin head. Aroma is big citrus with a grassy back note. It has a medium body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor comes out with a bold citrus taste (they nail it in there description with tangerine), then a bit of malt shows with a faint sweet feel and a big bitter bite on the end. In the after taste the citrus hangs as the bitterness peaks. Overall its a very good Imperial IPA just leans a little too much on the citrus for my taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours copper with a thick, fluffy, off-white head. Aroma strong of citrusy hops, some caramel malts, and hints of alcohol. The malts could be stronger to balance out the hops/alcohol, but overall it’s a really good beer. Could be a little thicker too.

Coppery amber in color with an off white head. Very nice taste with citrus flavors, hints of spice, and a slightly herbal or floral hoppiness. Very good bitter finish. Not overly strong considering the alcohol. A very good IPA.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 Poured from a 650ml bottle into a pilsner glass. Color was caramel amber. About an inch of head. Average amount of lacing on the top. The film on the sides wasn’t as good as I hoped, but still had a presence.
Very hoppy on the nose. The usual suspects with pine and citrus balancing the way. Lemon zest is the main citrus with grapefruit a semi-distant second.
A lot different than I expected with the taste. Some caramel in there, along with the previously mentioned citrus and pine. The initial taste immediately gives way to a sharp alcohol bite. It then smoothes out at the end with citrus finish that slowly dissipates.
Medium body. Average carbonation. Smooth and consistent taste throughout. Orange comes through later in the beer, where it seemed to be lemon and grapefruit early on.
Just a fantastic beer. It got better as I rated it. I am a bit of a Firestone homer, but it’s hard not to be when their beers are so good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. clear brass body with an off-white diminishing head. hugely resinous pine sap nose with complimentary notes of orange oil / floor wax, burnt citrus rind and an unpleasant peanut and ethanol note. medium body, moderately sweet, coming across sticky and a bit waxy, with strong pine sap / amber / resin rather than fruit / grass, which i prefer. alcohol is noticeable, malt is overly rough, sweetness is far too high and the hops are excessively astringent.

Very bitter double IPA, if you like bitter, this is for you, probably the most bitter dipa I have ever had, nice flavor to it, but bitterness dominates and takes away from the taste IMO, but still worth trying, top notch.
