4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 very solid beer all around. solid bitterness, nice solid malt body. definitely an Imperial Pale Ale as opposed to India Pale Ale in that it's stronger and thicker. well balanced - the hops have kick - but they won't make you pucker-up all that much. nice spiciness with a little bit of citrusiness. should be enjoyed by strong ale fans and hopheads a like.
UPDATE: this review was from a sampling on tap, tried in the bottle - not nearly as good - was strictly decent. similar experience with hale's ales (they're about 3 blocks away from maritime)

Tap @ The J & M Cafe: Meh. Musty and in in flavor. Ok, but glad I only drank a half pint of this bad boy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a rich golden amber color. Very little head. Aroma is floral and citrus hops up front, with significant maltiness. Flavor is bitter and roasty up front but with a sweet backbone. Overall a decent imperial IPA.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Served on tap at Jolly Roger. Clear gold color with a large white head. This is the cask version. Hoppy aroma. Low body. Not much initial flavor but finishes a little hoppy.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at jolly Roger tap room. Pint glass with commonmac and rosskyle and wildcard. Dark gold with white head and thick head and lacing. Aroma is subtle. Sweet and alcohol, then dry hop at the end. Was a bit clunky.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pub glass on 02.03.15.
A: Candied tropical fruit, grain, and lots of bready malt.
A: 1/4 finger head that recedes to a ring and fluff.
T: Some tropical fruit and grainy, bready malt dominate. Pine on the back end and tuna are subtle.
P: Oily. Not very bubbly.
O: The malt was too strong in this one. Granted, it’s an older IPA, but it wasn’t very enjoyable. Drain pour.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ Taphouse in Seattle. Hazy bright yellow, low white head. Low aroma of grains and citrus rind. Grainy palate with astringent, medicinal bitterness and weak citrus character. Overall lacking brightness and punch.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This IPA is all about the cascade. Citric notes of orange, lemon and mandarin. Dusty and grassy as well. Oily texture.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate white head on there. Nose is somewhat citrusy, with a bit of sweetness coming through as well. Taste is a bit sweet up front, with very little bitterness coming through, and a tad bit of citrus present.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice fruity hoppy aroma. Taste is the same. Mild malt with juicy hops as the star. Nice beer. Easy drinking.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is clear dark amber with a yellowish white head. Nose is bready and doughy, piney hops and resin. Taste is doughy, some bread crust, pine and faint citrus with gentle bitterness. Body is rather full and creamy, moderate carbonation and a semi dry finish. Some malt sugars of caramel linger through a shorter finish.
