I really like everything gearys makes and this is no exception. I think itís their blend of malts that I like so much. The hops wonít exactly wow anyone, but I didnít expect it to be a hoppy ipa. Itís really just a high alcohol pale ale... But if you did the gearys flavor you will love it,

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Draft @ Damariscotta River Grill) Coppery orange body with a nice biscuit head. Aroma is mostly fruity hops, a little bready. Good lacing. Fairly heavy, full mouthfeel. Taste is fairly bitter right on through from start to finish. Bitterness overlays pleasant fruity hop flavor. Seemed a little musty as well. No alcohol apparency. Not much depth of flavor but I liked it for its lack of sharp sweetness and lack of big alcohol presence like other big IPAís Iíve had. Much like a regular IPA except feels heavier and of course the higher ABV kick.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this on tap at Brian Borusí in Portland. I think they just get it in this week. Pours a bright yellow orange color with small creamy head. Aroma is pungent with floral hops, some grapefruit and other citusy stuff. Flavor is dominated by hops, and grapfruit and some spice, sweet. i think this is an Imp. IPA but the bartender just told me it was an IPA. thick and heavy mouth feel. Quality beer, i would have probably rated much high if i was a bigger fan of IIPAs

12 oz - The Wine Source. Dark copper, off white creamy head. Dried buttery citrus and spruce aromas warm to a light toffee raisin undercurrent. Dry citric-pine bitterness is nicely balanced on a buttery toast and toffee-like tone. Full bodied, soft carbonation, drying bitter finish. English in style, but I personally prefer West Coast style DIPAs...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a three finger white head that fades slowly, leaving some lace. Almost clear amber color. Light grapefruit hops nose. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is light sweet grapefruit hops. Not enough beef for an imperial IPA - needs more malt and hops. $2.70 for a 12oz bottle from Tullyís Beer & Wine Wells, Me.
