3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at BTBF. Pours with a very lightly hazed amber hued body with a lasting off-white head. Aromas are of grassy and resin hop flavors with tangerine and light caramel. Relatively clean ester wise. Flavors are sweet, caramel, grassy and tangerine. Not my favorite combination (sweet crystal malt + hops), but its not bad for the style. High carbonation.

Pours clear copper with a beige head. Smells piney. Taste is bitter and piney with some sweetness underneath. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Martin House The Imperial Texan finishes with a lingering bold bitterness.

Pours a nice amber/red with a light tan head. An aroma of spicy hops and malt. A flavor of smokey malt with a toasted and hoppy finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an opaque brown, thick head. Some caramel and brown sugar on the nose. Very malty, almost too much, overpowers the hoppy bitterness. This is a heavy beer, not my favorite but a solid ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at home. Pours a slightly hazy reddish gold with a persistent thin off white head. Aroma is very hoppy - pine, slight citrus, and more pine. Some maltiness also. Flavor follows. Very bitter. Really in the Imperial IPA but with a reddish hue. Nice beer. Sweet sticky finish.

4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is the biggest beer I have tasted. The 100 IBU's really linger on the tongue. It's such a full bodied beer that you can sit on one can for an hour. Each mouthful is to be savoured as this is a flavour bomb. Totally divine. This is my favourite beer. And it's very good value for money.

This is a great beer. Pours amber, white head tight bubble. Caramel aroma some fruit hop aroma. Medium body nice carbonation little alcohol warming bitterness lessens as it warms and malt comes forward. Still a hop bitter aftertaste

This thing doesn’t hit as hard as you would expect from a 9.7%, but introduces a ton of flavor as it flows. The finish is distinctly grapefruit but in no way offensive. It’s almost too-drinkable for an ale so strong. Love every sip.

16 oz can pours a red color with a nice white head. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit, light spice. Hop heavy but balanced a nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz. can. Pours a medium, we’ll retained, light beige head, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy, dark amber (SRM 15) body.......nose is pine, resin, toasted malts, balance to the hops......taste is very slightly sweet to start, with barest hints of toffee/caramel, then strong pine, resin, citrus peel, arrive, finishing with strong hop bitterness, no esters, balance to the hops......moth feel, medium body, sticky, alcohol warmth present, carbonation adds tingle, and light acid. This is a very hop heavy, dominated, beer balanced back by just enough malts. The hops are not overly complex in either aroma or flavor, but they are very definitely American. BJCPP 7/3/14/4/7
