3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear copper pour, malty and citrusy on the nose...and lots of caramel malts on the taste with some residual hoppiness. Not enough citrus or hoppiness, but still pretty tasty.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
What a disappointment. Had done interesting for aromas and taste initially like pineapple and citrus, but the alcohol and malt just make this beer drag across the tongue. No thanks.

Deep amber orange. Nice, big pine and tropical fruit hop nose. Clean toasted malt, caramel and biscuit with grapefruit/tropical fruit bitterness. Finishes with the perfect malt/hop balance. Lighter than anticipated, but highly drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very sharp and clean ruby amber with one finger of sandy tan head. Wonderful nose, like candied citrus and peaches. Citrusy and floral with some caramel malt notes. Flavor shows a lot of citrus rind and candy notes. Medium to full bodied with a moderate hop bite and piney finish. Some resin in the flavor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Apricot colored pour, mostly a white head. Sticky malts and citrus hops blend together nicely in the nose. Flavor is sticky and a bit more malt that I would have liked/expected. Still a pretty good example of the style.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear dark orange pour, a little bit of head and a very musty sweet hops aroma. Flavor is slightly sweet oranges, medium piney hop bite and very clean and crisp on the aftertaste. Solid beer all around, and pretty well balanced for 9% ABV.

It poured a copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was of some citrus, a slight pine scent, caramel and grapefruit. The taste was similar with pine, some hoppiness as well. A very good Imperial IPA.
