3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Imperial Pint draft at the Great Lakes Brewing Company bar at concourse C of the Cleveland airport. The pour is a mostly clear golden amber with a smallish off white head. The aroma is tropical fruit pineapple and grapefruit citrus hops along with light sweet cereal malt. The taste is the tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, light lemon citrus, than moves toward the soft sweetness of caramel and the malt. Nice balance, not overly sweet. The palate is medium bodied, soft active carbonation and residual sweetness in the finish that shows some of the alcohol. Does not cloy at all, nice DIPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark gold orangish light copper.Short head.Clear with some slight debrie.
Aroma is very tropical fruit,coconut,mago,pineapple,papaya,and anything else. Its almost exactly like fresh tropical fruit just cut.
Taste is too drinkable for this size. Its got a strong resiony dryish malt taste,hoppy tropical not as strong in tropical taste as aroma but has a almost more piney finish strong but not too much, has a bit of a toasty/buscuity character to it with the dryness.Some mild/medium carmalness.Has a citrus/ somewhat peppery clean linger.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of the absolute best IPAs Iíve had the pleasure of trying. Deliciously balanced and ample on the hops, with an impressive medley. A light spiciness exists on the dry finish, which is ideal for my personal tastes. Not overtly carbonated, which is indeed impressive for a beer with the intense aroma of pine, citrus, and resin going on in this beer. Damn near flawless.

Bottle split with Pedro. Pours a slightly hazy glowing orange with thin beige head and some lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, tangerine, tropical fruit and some light caramel malt. Taste follows suits with the addition of burnt cheddar cheese, pine, onion, with a bitter finish. Really tasty.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber with a firm off-white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, floral, light malty sweetness. Medium, slick body with a light carbonation bite. Flavor is sweet fruits, floral hops, light caramel malts. Nice lingering bitter finish. Not as overly sweet as many DIPAs but with enough to balance the higher hop amounts. Much more accessible than many DIPAs. Top-notch.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
A whole bushel of red berries on the nose; an impressively immense fruity, floral, sweetness. Must be fresh! A pretty awesome flavor. An underwhelming physical presence, but such seems to allow greater complexity of flavor for a double IPA. Easier to drink than most of the style, without sacrificing any flavor. Gotta love it, and it wonít take much.

Lots of bite, hits those nerves in the jaw behind the ears. Smooth going in, and kicks as it finishes. Smells very mild compared to how it hits the palate. I would definitely take this beer on a second date.
