3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is full and rich, complex malts and kinda heavy with a slight hint of citrus hanging on its back. The taste is like the little sister, a little round from the wheat but fresh and fully bodied. The hops is not as dominant, but they are there. There is actually a little much of alcohol breaking through in the end to make this a real bomb. But it is still up there as a top brew!!

Very interesting here. Pours golden into the glass, with a fizzy head that leaves wispy lacing. The nose is of piney resin. Flavors are sweet, a bit different than the traditional malt billing for an Impy IPA. The wheat almost pulls away from the citrus flavors noted in the "traditional impy", save for some lemon and lemongrass. A decent grain bill, though, almost like an Imperial Saison. The pine grassy bitter finish is hefty and lingers appropriately. The full body and active carbonation make for a zesty mouthfeel that substantiates the palate. A definitely different take on the Double IPA, but not unwelcome whatsoever. Prost to the creativity here!

Se acharem provem. Otimo balanço entre malte e lupulo, com final amargo. Pena que a garrafa é pequena.

I never give a perfect score to a beer because to me, perfection doesn’t exist when it comes to beer or food. To be fair, I must say that this one is pretty much close to perfection! First, Lagunita’s labels and beer names are funny! Then comes the serving... This one has a great looking golden colour with just enough carbonation to make the liquid jiggle in the glass. Head is foamy and the strong citrus aromas still make their way through this thick bubbly white head. Taste is absolutly beautiful: pink grapefruit, lemon, flowers, lime, malts.. it is so complex, that I can barely name a few ingredients storming in my mouth right now! The mouthfeel is outstanding with a smooth carbonnated bitterness, low alcool, a little sugar and a fine long long magnificent fruit taste that stays in your mouth as the liquid is going down the throath. As I said, it is simply a principle matter that I don’t give this beer a perfect score. This is just the perfect ale for me! Btw, sorry for all the mistakes, English is not my first language.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber, full beige head cover, walls of broken lace. Aroma of hops and a little malt. Taste is caramel malt that builds through the palate, finally allowing a satisfying shot of hops in on the swallow, only to have malt join in for a blended finish. Really solid, really enjoyable, recommended.
