COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with the juice of over 10,000 luscious pomegranates, ORIGIN is a complex, rich and balanced Imperial Amber Ale with a truly unique character. The pomegranate juice is added during fermentation, leaving only the residual sugars, which serve to balance the hop bitterness.

nothing special, bitter, not very much to say. ABV sure doesn’t feel or taste 8%, I would say 6% at best. Like I said, nothing special.

Bottle. Poured a hazy medium amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma was fruity (but not particularly pomegranate), caramel, floral, touch of citrus. Flavor was moderately malty and fruity. Mild bitterness. Medium body. Moderately sweet.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 11, 2013
cloudy amber, thick light tan head of fine bubbles. Nose of pomegranate, raisin, Belgian yeast and candi sugar. Taste is kind of tart, light alcohol, spicy from the yeast, lightly hopped with earthy hops, slight kick or alcohol burn on the finish. Fairly fruity

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Pomegranate is certainly up front. An enjoyable brew but doesn't really seem like beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of floral tones with a beautiful dirty amber pour, balanced taste and lingering mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cmonster (968) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark amber with a short-med head. Aroma is malt-forward. Minimal fruit and some earth. Medium sweet attack with fruit on the mid-palate. Strong amber is right. Medium body, average carbonation and a pomegranate skin bitter finish. Not bad.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 21, 2013
A half finger of head on a hazy, medium straw colored body. The aroma is grain with some fruitiness thrown in. The taste is not enjoyable. It has a strong bitter-sweetness that does not come across well. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Not fun.

bytemesis (3076) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear medium amber with a medium foamy beige head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is malty, caramel with pine and citrus notes. Flavor is about the same, with a definite fruitiness that I would never in a million years place as pomegranate. Medium to very sweet, some citric zesty bitterness present as well. Fairly full bodied and creamy. Actually a pretty nice beer, although the sweetness gets a little cloying with further consumption.
