2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours deep copper/red, thick off-white head, decent to poor lacing. Nose is deep caramel, overripe grapefruit, some damp cardboard, some soap... Flavours are sweeter than expected, smoky caramel, pith, some grass, soap and boiled vegetables. Really not my thing...

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Whole Foods - El Segundo. Big grapefruit nose, some floral notes, too. Hazy dark straw. bid rocky head. Heavy toffee, caramel initial; hops poke through in mid, but not much; final has some mild hop traces over thick sweetness. Medium-heavy body. Maybe less-than-stellar ingredients are used in this one. Contract brewed for Fox Brews. Okay. A bit too sweet.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a deep rich amber color with a big three finger head... Aromas are sweet toffee butterscotch with a touch of pine. On the palate this really is a mess... Butterscotch and alcohol, taste like an overly sweet barley wine that was mixed with a half glass of tap water.... slight bitterness in the finish, other than that where are the hops... again where are the hops ?

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Orangish/Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, Thick White Head, Good Lacing
S: This smells like a bad, gritty barleywine. There is zero bottle dating but I am going to say that this is an old bottle.
T: This is completely devoid of any hops...
M: Great Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, ...this is either an old bottle or just junk.
Overall....nothing more to say.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Relatively smooth for a strong beer, orange amber with abundant creamy off white head. Hoppy, piney aroma leads to very astringent taste, sharp bitterness lingers long after. Still smooth enough to mask to the high abv. Nicely done.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can. Pours hazy orange with a thick cream-colored head with great retention. Aroma is packed full of caramel malt and a hint of cooked vegetables. Smells too malty. Taste starts out sweet before a big bitterness sets in. No hop flavors, just bitterness. Not a fan of malty IPAs like this.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yellow brown reddish in color... Sweet syrupy aroma... Flavor is fairly sweet, burnt caramel malt, finish is not very bitter, mild spicy hop finish... Not the best

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 aren’t even fresh. Not a very good Imperial IPA.

Can. Pours bright clear gold. Huge fresh nose and big white head. Taste iOS fresh with a nice citrus hop profile. Decent malt balance. I would drink this often if i could find it in tx.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a copper gold color with a cream colored head. Lots of maltiness and citrus hops in the nose. Taste is sweet and bitter. Its a good DIPA, but I’ve had better.
