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.

22oz bottle picked up at Lee’s Discount
Appearance: Pours clear golden with a medium sized off-white head and good lacing

This is my kind of IIPA, great. Hoppy but not over the top bitterness. I would love to try this fresh. Next time I’m in Las Vegas I need to find this on tap.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can:   Amber, clear, slightly fiery, moderate off-white batter like head, fairly nice lacing.   Seems like a fairly strong rich biscuity and caramel nose.   Moreso on the caramel side.   Sweet pithy flavor,
citrusy, moderate malt base, not too bitter or hoppy.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Seems like a weak malty IPA if you ask me.   Not much about this says Imperial IPA, not big in malts nor hops.   It certainly
isn’t all that bitter either.   Its not bad, its just overall light.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Twelve ounce bottle from Food N Fermentation. This pours hazed coppery with a decent fluffy beige head. A big caramel aroma with fruit and pine. An interesting earthiness too. This beer has a huge malt profile with citrus and pine hops a little behind. I taste some bready yeast. It has plenty of sweetness and maybe a little too much. A decent brew.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Well last to rate my own shared bottle, figures. Hazy brune pour with some whitish head. Maybe this was an off bottle or what not but the hops have disintegrated, and are giving a soapy flavor off. Malty finish with some warming.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
May 2010: Pint served at Ales and Aces (Las Vegas). The bar is dark but the beer looked a clear amber/orange colour, on top sat an off white thin head that soon became a wisp and collar.
Hops and hints of pink grapefruit came across my nose.
The hops content killed whatever else might have been in the brew, no malt flavours could I find, some inkling of a citrus presence tried to appear, but got beaten back by the hops, which strangley didn’t give the beer a huge bitterness like some hops can (and do).
A different beer for me, pleasant, but not a world beater.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caramel aroma sugary sweet w notes of citrus and floral hops. Very sweet aroma. Pours amber nice clarity good head lasting lace. Flavors of caramel iced tea moderate to low citrus and floral hops. Sweet finish. Light lingering citrus. Not my favorite too sweet for my taste but not flawed and well put together.
