2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampler at the brewery. This is the kind of beer that I never liked and its not even what I donít usually like about it. Its just a lot of malts that arenít sweet but just messy. The bitterness isnít super strong, kind of indistinct hops. Just a lopsided, uninteresting beer that would have been cool a decade ago.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Georgetown, pours a clear amber with a small beige head. Nose brings out quite a bit of resin, along with hemp and bready caramel. Flavour is well-balanced, with lots of resinous hops and caramel malt. Big robust flavours with a hempy finish. Solid big red ale.

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.
