3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
An imperial that really delivers. Pours a hazy orange gold. Aroma is rich fragrant citrus and pine and sweet malts with some boozy warmth. Taste is
citrus, grapefruit, pine and deep dank chewy oily hops with just the right bitter bite. Very satisfying.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. A hazy golden color with a white head. A delicious citrus (grapefruit and orange) aroma. This one packs a tight punch and finishes strong but remains a beer that you could "accidentally" drink 4 of them and not get palate fatigue.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Another classic! I could drink this beer everyday for the rest of my. Boozy, but balanced very well. Caramel malt-like taste lingers while a resinous, bitter hop profile coats your mouth. Itís rind fruit galore with harmony!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I loved this beer. I really, really loved it. It pours a very hazy golden color. The head fades to a reluctant rim ring. The aroma is warm, citrus hops and strong, boozy malt. Like a good rye whiskey, this beer unapologetically invades your nose. The flavor is a combination of grapefruit juice, booze, beer, and thick, dank, oily hop aggression. On the exhale there is this burst of ABV vapor that seems like it ought to be something you can actually see. But it isnít medicinal. It isnít overdone, and it never gets old. Iíd have gladly opened the next bottle after finishing any one of these, but Iím trying to ration them out. I donít know how much of this Iíll be able to find.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet resiny fruit aroma. Clear deep copper body topped with a thin bubbly head. Bold bitter bite. A resin fruit sweet malt taste. Warms the palate a lot. Definitely want to sip this one as it grabs you with itís intensity.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Aroma of weed and syrup. Flavor is distilled hops. If IHOP made a hop syrup this is what it would taste like. Tropical hoppiness without limits.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Absolutely huge double IPA on draft at the Bistro on Bridge. The beer poured an amber color with ample off-white head. The head left some decent lacing around the inside of the glass. The nose was big, well-balanced and very inviting. The body was full and a little boozy. I tasted some wine, grapes, whiskey, dank and wet hops, sweet malts, grass, earth and lemon.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is a delicious beer. In fact, after consuming a lot this beer over the past several weeks, Iím left wondering if there is a double- or even triple-IPA, receiving its level of distribution, that comes even close. I believe I just purchased the last couple of sixers on the shelf in my neck of the woods, and Iím going to miss this lovely monster. One good sign, for me, of an excellent IPA is when aroma hits me as soon as I uncap a bottle, and Iím smacked in the face with a good dark and dank hoppy one every time with Waldos. Beyond the aroma, thereís plenty of taste to enjoy--bread-like, a little hay, and resin and flowery beyond belief. The ABV is evident in every sip, but in a kind and welcoming way. Donít pass this up. Or do, and leave that much more for me, please.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Whoa, this was on freaking bitter beer and I didnít care for it. Deep gold in color and no head. Aroma was mostly grapefruit peels and pine needles. Taste was the strangest ipa Iíve ever had. Malty and hoppy to the max.
