UPDATED: JAN 4, 2013 Boy this tastes d e l i c i o u s. Bitter and sweet is what I look for in an IPA. They could go in a lot of other directions with this tweaking it toward Belgium styles.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Murky copper with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet caramel, citrus, pine resin, oak and alcohol. Flavor is more sweet caramel, medium bitter hops and some light boozy oak/alcohol. Medium body with a sticky mouth feel. This is one of those IIPA/Barley Wines, really nice either way. There is a fair amount of sweetness but the hops and high abv help balance it out.

Really smooth imperial. A lot of west coast style hops coming thru with citrus and some spice. Strong hops but not harsh, with a real clean finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Herby, leafy hops on the aroma. Darkened copper with almost no foam at all. Taste is boozey with flavors of nuts, herbs, sage and some biscuit malt. There is a very subtle fruity flavor hiding in the back of the palate. Overall, not as good as I had expected. Nevertheless, it is a well done brew with moderately complex flavors. I’d give this a B+ rating.

This golden brown beer pours with very little head. It is surprisingly not too bitter for a beer with this name. It has a fruity almost sweet taste.
