3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Serving: Draft at the brewery. It pours a cloudy orange color. The nose is heavy with hops, mostly pine and tropical fruit. The flavor is powerfully bitter with lasting pine, resin, and pineapple notes. Full bodied with a good bit of residual sugar, but not sticky sweet. I am guessing the ABV leans towards the high side, despite an absence of presence. I rather enjoyed this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled during CBC 2013. Amber orange pour with a small khaki head. Light citrus in the aroma, some hoppiness, a bit too much malt and caramel for me. Better flavor, nice bitterness, more citrus hop punch with some melon and tropical fruits, dank, resin. Not bad!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle. Cloudy yellow with only a thin ring of white head. Bright fresh hop aroma, but not really much malt. Light body dominated by up-front hop bitterness. Not bad, but there really isn’t anything complex about this. There is not malt balance. This is - as described on the label - a citrusy hop attack.

On tap at the brewery. Light orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma is pine resin, light citrus, a bit orangey. Flavor is a little overly sweet. Slightly cloying. Ok, but could use more balance.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Super hazy golden honey coloured body with a thin, fast-dying white head. Aroma of pungent alcohol, pine, grapefruit, a bit of sugars and a definite medicinal quality. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong medicinal flavour with a ton of pungent hops, resin, grapefruit and floral notes with a lot of alcohol, malt and some caramel flavours as well - potent as hell. Aftertaste is deep and strong with the hops hitting first, but the malt and alcohol not far behind, and the medicinal and deep flavours lasting quite a long time - strong. Overall, a decent Imperial IPA, but way too many flavours and too much of a deep, bittering medicinal and metallic flavour and too much alcohol to make this really good. Nice to sample, but not worth sampling or trying to find at all reall. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Arrowine in Arlington, Virginia on 20-March-2012 for US$7.99 sampled at home in Washington on 09-September-2012.
