COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Constituting a beginning; giving origin to something derived or developed; original." Need we say more? True to its Imperial roots! This brew clocks in at 9.5% ABV, and over 100 IBUs! It is made with four varieties of grains resulting in a bold dark amber color and four varieties of hops, creating a subtle citrus aroma, and bitter, hoppy finish. Winner of a gold medal at the 2009 Santa Cruz National Organic Challenge, this recipe surely will not disappoint.

Kroney (198) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 30, 2015
Burnt orange pour with a nice frothy tan head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is floral hop but quickly gives way to a sweet brown sugar candied malt forward aroma. Dried fruit(dates, figs, raisins) sweetness as well. Taste is mostly burnt sugar and dried fruit sweetness, but does have some hop bitterness coming through. Sticky mouthfeel. Little but of alcohol warning. Really good beer.

drpimento (2421) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 16, 2015
Real thick, cream-colored, long lasting head, lots of lace, and a clear honey amber color. Aroma is caramel, toffee, fruit, hop - very nice. Flavor’s like nose, slight sweet, carbonic tang in front, then the bitter which is long. Body is perfect. Very good drinking. Slight alcohol warmth at the very end.

Rubber tire smell. Permeated through an otherwise great beer. Nice mouthfeel really clear with some chill haze at beginning. Would be a 4.5 beer but could not get over rubber tire.

hapjydeuce (970) - Carlsbad, California, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Bottled. Color is clear dark gold. Nose of grapefruit, pine sap and apricot. Flavor is quite sweet with notes of caramel underneath layered with more sticky grapefruit, lavender and hops. Pretty aggressive and thick. OK I guess. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (14910) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle. It pours a light hazyness, golden-orange in color and with a dense, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma is very piney and grapefruity, with a maltyness in the back. Candy hints. Lots of bitterness in the mouth, with some malty sweetness joining in. Full body and a pleasant carbonation. Lasting bitter finish with grapefruit peel and resins. After a while I sort of get used to the bitterness level, but it’s too bitter anyway. 141219
