3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the 76 station in Davis, CA. Pours a nice copper color with a good sized head. Lots of bitter citrus hop to it. A little unbalanced on the palate knocks it down a notch from the best Imp IPA’s. Very solid brew.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
amber color; caramel malt aroma; flavor is mostly malt with caramel notes; some hop bitterness, but not what I would expect from an imperial IPA; more of an English style IPA, with malt being the prominent flavor; a very good beer, but more like a barleywine that an IPA

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Strong alcohol taste and it’s only 8%. I’ve had a lot of Imperial IPA’s and love em, but this one doesn’t do it for me. A sub par DIPA that I will not get again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2014 Bottle: Hazy, yeast lees, orange copper, thick head and good lace. Huge hop lift. Orange rind. Slightly roasted caramel malt. Reese chocolate and peanut butter. Almost like east coast DIPA. Clean. Rich. Dry, not sour but very bitter. Rich, dense long palate. Bitterness is even to excessive for the the rich malt palate. Other than that issue its very nice. Fruit. Mix of yeast, malt and hops.

Bärnstensfärgad med mellanstort ljust skum! Massor med humle i doften och lite malt! Tropisk och lite krispig i smaken med en del malt! Bra öl!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 12oz. It pours a small, dense, off-white head over a quite clear, golden body. Mint-ish and resiny aroma with some maltyness. It’s full-bodied and lightly warming on the palate, semi-sweet. Sweet maltyness and a nice bitterness in the flavor. Mint, herbs, grass notes and some pineapple. Lasting bitter finish. A decent one, far from impressive. 131231

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
[No date on the bottle, so I assume it is fresh and will be rating it as such.] Orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some strong toffee and caramel notes as well as some old hops and trash. The flavor is similar. I get a bit of orange and pine but the beer is extremely malty with some strong alcohol notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not good.
