COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our version of Imperial India Pale Ale is as drinkable as beers with half its alcohol prowess. Be careful because at 9% alcohol, this beer will sneak up on you fast! CAMMO use a combination of the citrus, floral, and pine characteristic from Cascade, Amarillo, Summit, and Simcoe hops give this beer a floral hop nose and significant hop flavor. We kept this one as pale as possible and let the hops carry the weight without losing balance. This beer finishes dry and clean creating a refreshing, and very drinkable beer.

TwoSipDip (8880) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Bottle @ home, courtesy of armin. Thanks! Reddish orange appearance with a small, cream head. Light fusel, orange citrusy, a bit toasty aroma. Somewhat bready, earthy, light citrusy, a little boozy flavor. Eh.

Nsanders (484) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Dark amber with thin white head. Smells very bready, rye, with citrus/fruity hops and alcohol. Mild flavor, light bitterness. Heavier body.

This is the first beer Iíve had from Lucid. Citrus hop aromas, with hits of malt sweetness. Mild citrus hop flavor, not very hoppy for an imperial IPA but it is well balanced. Overall I eally like this beer you donít notice the alcohol is so high, it comes off very drinkable.

brokensail (10527) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 3, 2012
The pour is nearly copper in color with a white head. Rather sweet on the nose with lots of caramel and toffee. Very little hop character, maybe just a bit of an herbal note. The flavor is similarly poor. Bread, caramel, and toffee are the primary flavors with minimal hop influence.

bookman10 (621) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2012
Pours a clear, copper-gold with smallish, quickly-dissipating head. Rather muted floral, hop aroma. Flavor is also a bit understated. There is the expected bitter hops and citrus combination, though not as intense as one might expect from a beer like this. It finishes quite cleanly--not bitter on the palate. Itís a promising start, but I wish theyíd up the ante a bit and really go for the flavor...

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2012
Iím following up a Surly Furious with this one, so my results may be a tad skewed. Itís like watching The Stones open up for some debut performance of a young indie band. Anyways... Pours a nice clear burnt pear/gold, some pinkish hues. Thick white cap and good lacing, zero beading. Earthy hops on the nose, herbal bits. Sweet/tart, no discernible booze. The taste is not what I was anticipating - thereís a standard hop canvas that is disturbed by some onion/garlic/spinach quality. Not as in, like a filtration issue, itís something else. Canít quite put my finger on it. Plenty of potential here, but the taste shows that something maybe has gone a-rye.

Guerde (1161) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2012
(bottle) Pours a clear gold color with a medium white head that retains nicely and leaves a significant coating of lacing. Aroma is, well...., suspect, with a large amount of vegetal scents that reminds me of sniffing a freshly opened can of Green Giant canned green beans. I can sense some of the floral element they were apparently going for (particularly a rosehips scent), but the vegetal scents just dominate. Peanut brittle creeps in from out of nowhere, and just makes this even more bizarre. Cracked black pepper. An utter smorgasbord of conflicting scents that confuse the olfactories. The taste is thankfully a little more straightforward, with some fairly pleasant pale malt sweetness and an astringency reminiscent of darjeeling tea and grapefruit pith. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is spot on. Overall this beer is pretty jumbled, as the aroma is god-awful, and the flavor is nothing short of mediocre. Methinks this recipe requires some significant retooling.

Trev (1868) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2012
Bomber: Pour is medium gold with a tight thin foamy head. aroma is tropical fruit, citrus, light cardboardy malt under that. Body is slightly syrupy, strong medicinal herbal hop presence that is slightly off putting. some caramel and piney hop.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2012
On tap @ Pizza Luce. Clear amber orange with a film of white head. Nose of caramel and bready malts with some floral hops. Flavors of citrus and resin with a bitter finish.

DalzAle (1941) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2012
On tap at the newly revamped Old Chicago-Eden Prairie. Dark clear orange pour, clean strong hop aroma. Flavor is also very strong and alcoholic hops, a little bit of malt and burns on the aftertaste. Iíd give this another chance.
