3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the brewery tap room (as "Superchopp"). The beer is a clear dark amber color with a medium bone white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of malt, hops and caramel. Medium-bodied with flavors of piney hops, citrus and caramel malt. The finish is malty up front with a resiny hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap at the brewery. Iím again confused by the ESB categorization. I understood this to be their super-IPA offering. Dark in color with monster hop presence. The body was substantial - a high quality, bigger IPA. It wasnít anything that stood out to me, and given the opportunity, I would much rather pound a bunch of the Johnny Utah.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Indeed a hoppier version of Choppers. citrus hops are everywhere. lots of grapefruit aroma and flavor. almost hopped to soapyness. quite sweet. i think a an imperial amber is an apt description.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at jules maes. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a loose white head. Gorgeous big tropical fruity nose. Mango and pineapple. Soft woolly body. Toast, caramel, and orange peel marmalade on the mid palate. Lightness of the body makes absolutely no sense with the turbine powered hop plume on the nose, but theyre both good (great, even), even if they are two different beers in the same glass. Long tangy fruit finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark amber color with a nice off white head. Aroma is hoppy with some pine notes. Flavor is fairly hoppy, mostly piney notes again. Well balanced with malt presence as well. Finish is fairly bitter hops though, overall itís well done. I would pick this up if I lived in the area. Growler refills are very well priced.
