3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer has been reviewed by many others so I'm not going to break it down in typical fashion - this has already been done ad-nauseum. I would just like to say thay I do not feel it has been represented here entirely fairly. While I would admit that it should rate only fair AS AN IMPERIAL IPA, I do find it to be a very drinkable beer and I would certainly encourage anyone to sample it for yourself. I say this as a tried and true Imperial IPA fan (my favorite style). Perhaps one should take it in the spirit of Florida as a hot weather brew which perhaps should sacrifice a little purity of 'type' for drinkability. As a final note, I've drank this from tap in Florida and remember it as being better than the bottled version.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft pour pint in Margaritaville. Clear golden pour with a quick fade head. Soft and sweet malt aroma. A ton of booze comes through here, and finishes with a bit of burn as a result. I expected this to be even stronger than it is. Malty. Not too bad, but just short of a pleasant IIPA.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a subtle transparent burnt golden/orange color with a slim finger’s head. Messy lacing is somewhat foamy and clingy.
The smell has a ton of dried tobacco/leafiness over top of subtle dried floral over some caramel malts. Slight floral? Patchouli? Really? Is this some liberal hippie beer?
The taste was mainly the dry tobacco flavoring. Definitely the dry tobacco aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it, if one can look past the dryness of it.
Overall, hard to say if I’d try this again, maybe if I saw a date on this....not sure, I’m left scratching my beard.

Bottle in Miami. Clear amber color, medium-sized white head. Cardboard, sweet alcohol aroma in the nose. Medium-bodied, rich palate. Punch of alcohol, herbal bitterness, pine with long aftertaste. Grassy and grainy. This is quite heavy on booze.

High alcohol and strong pine hop makes this beer pretty one sided. Cloudy orange with a decent foam. Bitter and lingering.
