3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy amber with an orange tinge and a thin creamy off white head that lasts and laces the glass really well. Aroma is citrus, fruity, sweet malts and some caramel. Flavour is a higher but well balanced citrus bitterness, sweet malts, biscuits and caramel. The bitterness lingers for a very long time though isn’t too harsh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Tom’s Little Havana. Earthy and overly sweet with a boozy kick. A real letdown in the Imperial IPA department.

Puissant nez de houblon frais qui se traduit parfaitement en bouche. Une amertume assez prenante s’impose du début à la fin. Puis une touche de caramel vient nuancer le portrait. Seul ombre au tableau; un arrière-goût un peu métallique demeure.

Bottle share by BVery, year aged IPA here. Some old corn/wheat/pine scents on this. Taste is similar, watered down pine/hops.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
December 15, 2012 bottle shared by Bvery. Orange pour with some head. Aroma was dominated by malt but there was some hops in there so this may be an older bottle (yep bottled December 2011). Taste was like a dirty sock. Past its prime for sure.

Bottle. This is just okay for me - orange yellow pour with a small soapy head. Sharp drying hoppy flavor. Herbal and floral aroma.

Aroma is one of beer’s most complex features. Aroma is propelled by lively CO2 and dampened by pillowy heads - especially nitrogen foam. Click on a term below to add it to your tasting notes.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours orange, translucent, murky, with lots of white lees wafting about; the head is beige with a tint of orange and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: burnt toffee, grapefruit, and biscuit. The taste is medium-bitter that carries through to the finish; there are notes of burnt toffee and grapefruit. The palate is medium bodied, creamy, and has a long finish. Overall, defined hop flavours with a well balanced malt backbone.
