COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big, bold, and British! O.G. 1080, 100 IBUís, AbV 8.5%. She is amber/copper in color with a strong persistent head. An intense hop aroma is deliverd by copious amounts of English Styrian Gold and Kent Goldings hops. She is full bodied with a strong sweet malty toffee/caramel backbone that supports the 4.3 pounds of hops per barrel making her a very bitter, but delectible woman.

On tap at the source - enjoying ck1ís birthday. Pours a yellowish-orange with little head. Some lacing. Aroma has fruit and simple sugar and light citrus. Taste is fruity, citrus, some biscuity malts, some sugar. ck1 identifies the Golding Kent hops. Medium bodied with a bit of an alcohol presence. Finishes to the sweet side of bittersweet. Shrug? Old keg?? Hope to get back to retry. Having a taste of the ipa - it was better, so would hope the base would generally translate.

tmoreau (2563) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Shared bomber poured to snifters with a cloudy, orangey gold color, with a modest layer of off white head foam to a bubbly ring & film, and spotty lacing. The nose was a little dank & stinky, with a touch of sweetness, resin, and light citrus & spice. Medium bodied with average to soft carbonation, the taste followed up with medium astringency & dryness to the hop bitterness, and some malt sweetness. Not really a bold alcohol presence, and although tasty, was altogether too mild & thin to be considered Imperial, imo.

Draft at 8th street Ale House Sheboygan WI. Dark gold and hazy. Milder hop nose. Interesting flavors with some light spiciness and sweeter hop profile. Unique and very good.

CloakedDagger (728) - - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle 65 cl. Label reads 9,0% ABV. Pours an almost clear amber with a small off-white head. The aroma is almost entirely caramel with some alcohol showing. Hardly any detectable hop aromas. Rich, malty body, again loads of caramel. Clearly there is some bitterness, but itís more herbal than fresh and citrusy. Reading the description I understand why! Ends bitter and alcoholic. 260713

Lemke10 (826) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 11, 2013
This pours a cloudy copper orange color with an off-white head. The aroma is a mixture of hops and citrus. The taste is smooth, rich, with a lot of hops mixed with citrus and caramel malts. Finish pleasantly dry. This is an all-around good beer.

XmnwildX12 (2078) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Has an off caramel bitter scent, taste is similar to the scent but it has a little sweeter caramel/toffee scent and a huge burn that was a little unpleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

deyholla (6989) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 7, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber with a near white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces nicely. Aroma has a nice combo of grapefruit and pine with a grain backbone. Flavor begins with grapefruit that transitions to a bitter pine note with a bit of a light grain backing.

Enjoyed on tap as part of a sampler at Grumpy Troll in Mt. Horeb, WI. Appearance is a cloudy caramel brown thin white head. Aroma unique english hops, light fruit, bit of malt, bit of yeast. Taste is pretty good, light burn, bit of fruit, rich in malt and hop, tastes more like a red. Pretty good.
