Beer pours hazy orange golden color with a decent sized mostly white head that is retained. Aroma is compelling. Notes of fruit. Quite sweet smelling where are the hops? Very odd flavor. Almost taste like orange juice. Not going to become one of my favorites, but is quite intriguing.

Great Imperial Pale. Bursting with flavour that isn't over dominated by the hops.

After a bunch of different sorts of big IPA today, this one is, well, different. A great deal more malt: almost akin to HopDevil. THe malt is fruited up and well-bittered by the hops, but I'm surprised by how prominent the malt is. Never have I encountered such a malt-driven Imperial IPA. Almost a candy apple character.

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2004 Co-rated with scraff... This beer rocks! Very lightly hazy orange ale. The aroma is of sweat, caramel, light perfume, floral notes and wet leather. The flavor offers notes of caramelized pineapple, orange blossom honey and grapefruit rind. Thoughtfully bittered. Full-bodied with a heavy, oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Lengthy, bitter, dry finish. Great stuff! Underrated!

Tarty malty aroma. Nice looking amber colored beer with a thick head. Really sweet, average tasting ale. Nothing special, but decent enough.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2004
Gold color with nice big head. Big floral aroma. Sweet and sticky but a little too sweet. Alcohol finish.

Glowing reddish brown color...cherry brown or somesuch. Smells like a couple drops of brandy at christmas mixed into a great northwest IPA. This beer has probably seen wood...I KNOW IT'S SEEING MINE. THANKS AND GOODNIGHT::::**)))!

This was a very tasty IPA - big citrusy grapefruit hops were mouthfilling in every respect because they blended so nicely with the intense malt presence. A great palate IPA just for this reason, everything just flows so well and it is all very appetizing.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Like hops? This one's loaded. Aroma is sweet and tangy, hops all over. Palate is very full and malty, with grapefruit esters and bitter zing. Not for the weak, this beer should satisfy any hop head.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2003
Golden with a nice,frothy head. Good lace,and streaming carbonation. Aroma is heavily malty(caramel,bread),with lots of earthy,pine. Very smooth,creamy texture. Big body,rich malt backbone. Starts malty,followed by hop bitterness,lightly fruity. Finish is malty,with lingering earthy/citrus hops. Not overloaded on the hops,actually malt/sweetness stands out more to me.Pretty good.Thanks Kinz.
