Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Fredís the man! Pours copper with a creamy/foamy/bubbly light beige head. Hop aroma is dank! Itís not harsh. Itís just very heavy duty. Floral and citrus, probably. Full bodied. Itís got a lot of light roast malt. Itís almost suggesting barley wine. But there is a load of citrus, floral and resin hop. Curl around this and take a nap. Succulent. Finishes both dry and sweet. Taste is just wonderful. Makes my salivary glands ache with pleasure.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber in color with a finger of off-white head. Kind of past its prime, it seems. Sweet caramel and toffee malt with some bready malt. Floral hops and a bit of citrus, but not all that hoppy. A little bit herbal and piney with some floral notes. Sweet toffee and bread, but overall just kind of meh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: † Amberish, pale haze, moderate to large frothy off-white head, nice lacing. † Citrus peel, pith, hops, and alcohol on the nose. † Similar on the tongue, not too bright, but thankfully the 9.5% really only comes through on the nose. † Bitter but not biting, decent malt background, mild citrus sweetness. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † Nota big example, but not overly done on either side. † Could be a little brighter, but as is its pretty enjoyable. † Thanks Ron!

Bottle brought from CA by my neighbor. When it was too cold, it was really unpleasant, but as it warmed the orange/citrus came through better. Hoppy but not over the top and doesnít rise above the other Imperial IPAs Iíve had lately. Bottle.
