4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transfer from BA review on 3-2-13-
Poured from glass into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a medium amber color with a one finger white head. The head fades relatively fast to leave a good level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is big of herbal and citrus grapefruit hops. Mixed with these are lighter notes of a bready smells as well as some faint tropical fruit aromas of pineapple and mango as well as some flavors of a bubblegum like smell.
Taste- The taste begins with a bready quite malty flavor. Mixed with these flavors there are some flavors of a mango and tangerine sweetness. There is also a hop flavor of a more herbal nature in the initial tastes that bring a moderate hop flavor to the tongue. As the taste advances the fruit flavors remain relatively constant while the hop flavor grow more intense with a grapefruit flavor soon overwhelming the herbal and becoming the dominant hop flavor. At around this time a light yeasty flavor also comes to the tongue. In the end this grapefruit hop is rather potent, but in many ways, fits the tropical fruit flavors rather well to leaves a nice bitter and fruity flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the creamier and thicker side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. Both are very nice for the style and match the hop and fruit/malt profile nicely.
Overall – This is a fairly nice yet easily drinkable imperial IPA with a good blend of hop and fruit flavors.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Kris Wines, Aug 2014. Bottles of this have varied over the years - in the past have had batches with a hoppier, more resiny hit. Aroma on this batch was good - sticky, sweeter malts with piney hops - but the flavour was a bit off. A savoury ’soy sauce’ note, more thinness in body than noted before, and a less pronounced resin hop flavour & mouthfeel. OK but not as super nice as previous bottles I’ve had.
