3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Comes off more like an East Coast IPA, than a west coast brew I expected more bitterness, you can definitely taste the malts on this brew. It looks more like a Pale ale than a IPA The aroma or is a little hop forward but not what I expect for a Imperial ale. Reminds me a lot of a local Imperial I PA I drink from Grittty's

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Two 12oz cans into a giant tulip. Pours a marmalade orange, butterscotch tan. Head is large, frothy and full. Plenty of lacing, white and nice. Aroma of spiced orange, coriander, and melon, dried fruit also. Taste of orange, hoppy laced fruit, gracious vine picked hops, sweet candied pine resin, and bitter grapefruit. Finish is bitter and hoppy with a dry pine cone slap. Abv is not too obtrusive, holds nicely and rounds this one out. Not impeccable, but a solid imperial.

Can pour. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a patchy inconsistent head. Semi sweet citrus flavors with a hint of grassy hops too. Smooth transition to a decent bitter hop finish. Enjoyed this one. Pretty heavy beer. Good overall.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy brew with a orange/amber colour. Hoppy deliciousness pine cone and citrus aroma with a nice pungent grassy hoppy backdrop and sports a slight pepperness. On the palate it is made in a drier hoppy style that showcases the hops, slight sweetness but that only adds a little bit of backbone to this brew. Has a sort of soft mid-palate but that doesn’t’ take away from thisdelicious brew!

Light head much like a golden pilsne r in color with some haze. Citris notes with a light cat urine notes . Massive hops bite that lingers with high resin notes.

Pours a hazy golden color with a thin white head. Nose is caramel and citrus. On the palate is grass, grapefruit, and and caramel. Little carbonation and a water mouth feel, but very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours a clear copper color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is a little more resiny than I usually find with the IPA family, but pleasant nonetheless; just a hint at some caramel in the end. Taste is quite bitter, but still very drinkable and light. Hides the 9.3% quite well, methinks.

Can thanks to Brian! Pours crystal clear orange with a medium creamy off-white head that dissipates slowly with good lacing. Aroma is pine, spruce, leaves. Flavo rid light sweet, medium bitter, a bit of grapefruit on top of the pine and spruce. Medium body, a bit harsh.
