2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is muted but sweet and a little hoppy. Appearance is off; color is right, but head was tiny. Taste was sour and a bit bitter, but not from hop. Finishing taste was sour with some stale. Palate was lacking carbonation, but a nice texture and thickness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. It pours hazy amber with a creamy off white head. The aroma is biscuit malty with berry like and floral hoppy notes. Light sweet marmalade. Creamy malty flavor with citrus and floral hoppy notes. Sweet toffee notes with biscuit and marmalade. Really tasty and even though it’s to the sweet side the floral and berry parts are very well joined up here. Lovely. No sign at all of the high abv.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a copper-amber color with soft off-white head. Syrupy hoppy-pine aroma. Balanced, but hop-forward....clean but there is a lingering sticky piney-hop flavor.

Nose is light citric but with clear malty notes. Nose the same and taste revealed that again. Palate a little fading but still rich. Overall rather good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
9.25%ABV. Imperial IPA.
Tapped out a rich amber. 18ºSRM.
Nose is heavy with a funkly fog-like fug. Aromas of fresh hemp and other more closely related herb relatives. When I sniffed this again for nose after the tasting was done and there was just the dregs slowly evaporating off the bottom of the glass, there are really thickly spicy and funky odors of sweat socks, oregano and dill...and of course that hemp-like nose.
Palate is sweet with graham cracker, honey, barley bread toast. Hops are bitter, resinous, with a hint of pine. The citrus character of the hop comes through when you appreciate the bitter, the sweet and the pine-like tang at the end which is a little like chasing on grapefruit peel.
Finish was medium, bitter and as mentioned above a little weedy funky.
