3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a bad DIPA. Overall though I wish for a bit more body. It is indeed a maltier DIPA among DIPAs, but it seems to settle for the middle ground, i.e., in my opinion, if you’re going to be DIPA, either go for a weak or a strong malt backbone. In between seems oddly weak. Still, not bad.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 355ml @ Harpoon Tap Room - Terminal A, Logan Airport (BOS), Boston, MA
Pours clear deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, alcohol, floral, herbal and citrus. Taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter with a long warm, boozy, caramel, floral, grass and citrus finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Way too strong, sweet and malty for my liking, didn’t seem that fresh either.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Off white head with decent lacing. Dark golden color. Looks malty. Smells malty! And boozy. Citrus hops, but you can tell the malts will win this battle. Good hop flavor but it fades to sweetness very quickly. I think I taste bananas. Very little lingering bitterness, but it’s boozy. Syrupy and sweet, but drinkable despite. Good IPA, if a little sweet.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy dark amber, fluffy two-finger ivory head, streamers of lace. Big caramel malt begins this brew, with equally strong hops joining on the swallow. Both parts push aggressively through a long lingering finish. I don’t know how much of this I can stand in one session, but 12 ounces is plenty to savor. Highly recommended.

This is one of the most unique imperial IPAs I’ve tasted, and they are usually unique. I can’t place my finger on what the flavor is that is tickling my fancy. Something in the blend of malts and hops is extraordinary. Wow!
