Clear amber with a three finger high, white head. A lot of lacing on the glass. Nose: Hops, citrus, pine, apricot, pineapple and caramel malt. Taste: Floral, hops, citrus, pine, caramel and grapefruit. Medium bitterness and a litle carbonation. Great beer! So soft an easy drinking. Love it!

Garrold (2689) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2015
Tap. Black Swan, Leeds. Hazy, dark gold. Bubbly, thick, lasting, pale cream coloured head. Beautifully fresh, rich, sweet, tropical fruit. Loads of peach and passion fruit. Behind that there’s a lovely, dank, leafy resin character. Big, sweet biscuit, grainy malts too. Smells fantastic. Taste is rich sweet, turning fruity, zesty, piny bitter. Smooth, full palate. Soft carbonation. Finishes long, resinous bitter, with a lip sticking sweet close. Lovely.

Very light aroma. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Rich malty sweetness followed by a mild hop bitterness. Excellent.

Pretty decent one, but not a 100. Beautiful color and foam, pours perfectly. A bit on the sweet side

Its a good beer. My buddy Lemon left it for me in 22 oz bottle. Drank the bottle and it was nice but IPA not my gig.

Really nice imperial ipa. It’s a great imperial for those that don’t like bitter IPA’s. It has enough malt to really balance out the hops. Very nice change of pace ipa.

22oz bottle from Wegmans in Geneva, NY for $6.99. A solid beer. The bitterness is on point. A little too sweet for my taste but I like them with little to no sweetness cause I love my bitterness and hop flavor. Great hop flavor in this brew. They did a great job with that. Poured a nice very slightly dark amber with a beautiful head that after a few minutes started to look like a mountain range. Decent lacing throughout. Overall this was a great imperial and I would get again.

Tropical grapefruit notes on the nose. Grapefruit remains strong on the tongue balanced by hints of 'herbal'.

Clear, copper coloured with a small white head. Fresh aroma, nice smooth taste. Slightly bitter, well-bodied overall. Very nice.

OMG, I love this beer! It is my favorite IPA. Very well balanced hops bitterness with a strong malt body. And the hop nose! Best when fresh. You can really discern a difference.

Pours a clear bright orange with minimal head. Aroma is skunky dank hops, earth, grass, orange, piss. Flavor is sweet and sticky hop, sweet fruits, bitter citrus rind and skunk hop.
