Smelled great - sweet citrus. A thick, golden appearance -- but simplistic and overly sweet taste. Not a big fan, but it is decent.

29th July 2013
Rake. Keg. Almost clear gold - amber beer. Decent creamy white head. Palate is smooth and slightly soft. Hops are surprisingly mellow. There is a touch of coconut and a little cherry. Colour me confused! Not picking up the usual El Dorado crystallised tangerine fruit. Little aniseed alcohol. Cherry becomes almost cherry blossom. Finishes smooth with a medium and somewhat hard to identify bitter linger. Intriguing!

Flavor is hop bitterness throughout with some dry, bready malts and light fruit esters, but not enough to balance the hops; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Put simply not a great representation of a dipa in my opinion, burnt flavor alcohol is evident. Coffee flavor is detected. Not terrible but not something I would look for in an imperial.
