3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From 12oz can.
Poured a cloudy gold with big white head. The hops dominate the aroma, and come through very strongly in the taste and aftertaste.
Lots of character for a beer from a can.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - World Market - 12 oz can. Pours a medium golden with nice bubble action, a sticky show white head and thick rings of lacing. Strong resiny fresh spruce aroma, touch of spearmint. Flavor has plenty of sticky hop citrusy bitterness, a touch of maple syrup sweetness, a hint of spearmint. Mouthfeel has a nice stickiness to it. Fades just a bit in the finish, but overall pretty solid.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral, lightly citrusy, and lightly fruity hops, plus a little pale and light caramel malts. Flavor the same, but somehow light and tin-like for a beer with such a high alcohol content. Average texture. Not bad but not great.

Geez, what a mess. Bright yellow. Smells nicely hoppy. Taste is really just a big boozy mess. Overly sweet mixed with harsh bitterness and a lot of alcohol. Ugh.

It will get you drunk. Pours yellow with a white head. Great floral aroma. Creamy, very average hop character.

extreme malt aroma with alcohol and pine - cloudy light amber pour with lots of head - all of the typical flavors are present - citrus, pine, malt, alcohol - finishes with bitter orange/malt

12oz can poured into glass. While I was intrigued by having a DIPA out of a can this one didnít really live up to my expectations. There just wasnít enough hop character to it and it was overall pretty boring.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can, extra from trade with my friend Randy in Arizona. Pours a clear golden orange color with a big, thick foamy head that fades very slowly, leave some lacing. Fairly faint aroma of musty grass hops and pale malt. Taste is stale, bitter hops with no sweetness to balance. Very strong bitterness. Light caramel malt backbone. Overpowering oily mouthfeel which also makes it a little thinner than I like. Overall, bitter hop bomb and the hops arenít even fresh. Not a very good Imperial IPA.
