3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden amber hue with off white head that reduces to a lacing cap that attempts to coat the side of the snifter. Nose is all malt and caramel goodness with slight flowery bouquet. Taste continues the theme with ample bitterness to consider this well balanced. Body is medium to full with mainly slick qualities, but is prickly and drying in the end. Aight?!?

Rating #1472 - 27.02.2015 On tap @underground_yeg. Pours a darker amber, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is doughy, pastry malt, and a bold punch of pine, citrusy, grapefruit hops in the mix. Taste is boldly hopped, pastry dough malt meets the fruit bomb, lots of pine resin, and citrus notes throughout. Beats me.

Pours a hazy golden brown with a decent head. Smells of honey, caramel and flowers. Smooth texture, tastes like strawberries, huge notes of honey, a slight bitterness to balance the sweetness. The alcohol is almost undetectable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
9.75%ABV. Imperial IPA.
Tapped out a deep amber. 18ºSRM.
Nose is sweet, with aromas of fresh warm barley bread, roasted acorns and some other rich nutty aromas of roasted almond, hazelnut and pecans.
Mouthfeel syrupy and soapy. Palate has a funkly umami that is reminiscent of sardines or any other equivalent small oily fish in a tin. There are of course nutty, roasty, caramel and toffee like flavours. There was a sweet alcoholic palate which I for me was just a little much. A very personal thing. I wouldn’t say it was a bad thing, just not for me.
Finish is bitter and a little cloying. I guess that was the play on words they were hoping for "IBU". Well there certainly was plenty of BUs to go around!

Caramel cloudy look. It has a light citric aroma, but not much. Perhaps its too cold. Very rich and sweet taste.

330 mL bottle. Slightly hazed amber, thin beige head. Floral and pine hop aroma. Taste is big on the hops, piney, resin, fairly bitter finish. Overall nice balance though.
