3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Hazy orange pour, with a medium, beige head. The aroma is heavy resin and floral hops, with some butterscotch and wet hay. The flavor is very bitter, with little to no malt backbone. Heavy body, sticky, and very astringent. Low carbonation. Overall, this is a strong and hoppy, but fairly unpleasant beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very fresh and floral hops in the nose, the beer starts very floral and hop-aromatic. In the mainpart there is a nice smooth sweetness with hints of the rye, which makes it nice "grainy", a bit like a good rye bread. The aftertaste is long, intense-floral and very nice balanced rye-bitter.
A very great beer! I like it! --> 13/12//13/13

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy orange-golden color with a large well-retaining eggshell colored head. Tons of bubbles migrating from the bottom. I hope it’s not because it’s Sweet malty and lightly citrusy aromas. Mildly scrubby and astringent mouthfeel. Lightly spicy, honey, citrus, cereal malt flavors.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fresh bottle. Pours hazy gold/orange with slight white head. Aroma is pine and citrus, but both are muted. Not much in the nose. Taste is orange (ShockTop-ish) with some balance by the malt. Would like more carbonation here. Feels a bit one-note.

Draft at the source, part of the $10 tour. This is the older version that uses Zythos hops, the new version has Galaxy. Hazy golden color, fluffy white head. Aroma of subtle fruit. Taste is bittersweet fruit. A bit plain.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nothing special. Sticky mouthfeel and pretty dry. Hints of apple. Smell is piney, but muted. An ok rye, but not one for the ages.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Perhaps my very favorite brew currently. An Imperial Pale Ale with a strong spicy flavor and aroma of hops. At 9% alcohol there is no mistaking it’s potency but the brew is so well balanced... full body, medium texture, soft carbonation with a lovely long finish. World class. I highly recommend this to one and all.
