   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2013
On cask at Sugarland Flying Saucer. I have yet to try an IPA on cask that I like better than the keg. I compared this (in pints) side by side against Endeavor and Maharaja. They all look almost identical in the glass. Hop Delusion is is full of fruit and pine, but (this cask version at least) is not as hoppy and citrusy as Endeavor. This version lacks the hop punch I love in a IIPA. It’s still good, and I look forward to doing the same comparison when I find it on keg instead of cask. Bring on the Valkyrie, Southern Star! I think you’ll have a winner for best IIPA produced in the Houston area and perhaps beyond.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Theydon Bois. Bright clear gold beer, big cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Mild fine carbonation. Airy malts bring mild creamy sweetness. Good marmalade hops backed by light lime and lemon. Mild pine and a touch of tropical fruits. Hops spice before a light semi dry finish. A fine beer.

Warming finish with moderate piney resins, some crackers, toasty pale malts, more orange and grapefruit. Pretty nice.

Light to medium amber pour with robust and enduring head with some lacing. Nose is grapefruit and citrus with a bit of grassy backing. Heady hop bitterness and mild carbonation persist on the palate and linger. And linger. The alcohol on this imperial is notably high but not overpowering. Absolutely not session material (you did read the name, right?) this bold but not remarkably different imperial IPA is quite satisfying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
