Atom (1755) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Bomber thanks to queenholly, pours a murky copper/orange with small white head. Aroma is yeasty and heavy on toffee malts. Taste has a bite hop spice into caramel and toffee malts with some bitterness and light citrus. An English IPA with almost a barley wine flavor. A bit lacking on hops however.

On tap at Brickhouse Tavern in Louisville. Very nice IPA. The alcohol was hidden well and a nice balance between malt and hops.

Growler at the DC Expanded Sour Tasting, shared by maniac, thanks! Poured an amber color with a small white head. Aroma was a balance of hop and malt character, no booze. Bitter hop notes. some light resin. Certainly masks the alcohol very well in this one.

Advocate_Ames (502) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Pours a copper color with a blend of red and orange. The head has a nice retention and the foam sticks to my glass. The aroma is of crisp malts and has defined hop notes. The hops had citrus, minor spice, very resinous, and grassy scents. While tasting I picked up on sugary malted grains, a bitter bite, and booze. The body was medium and it had a good finish that did not linger too long. Nothing really stands out here. Its a good beverage but not one I’d search to have again.

seymour (1650) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Tasted on draft at 2015 St. Louis Microfest in a willi becher glass. It poured a clear orange amber colour with thin but persistent white foam and lace. Strong caramelly malt backbone supporting an even stronger hop load: grapefruit, black currant, black pepper, pine resin. Fruity. Tangy. Medium body and carbonation, well-rounded mouthfeel, lingering hoppy aftertaste. Good stuff in the West Coast IPA vein.

Brentv (476) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 12, 2015
From bomber. Pours a rich clear dark honey color with a thin dense foam head that hangs around and lots of lacing that clings to the glass. Aroma is subdued, with citrus floral notes. Taste is bitter, some citrus and floral. Medium oily mouthfeel. Bitter finish.

AirForceHops (4413) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 18, 2014
22 oz. bottle purchased at Learys Fine Wine for $8.95. Dirty orange color with lasting head. Aroma is fruit and floral and mild grassy hops. Tempting.

The flavor is sweeter then I was hoping with more of an English feel to it. Candied orange and peach upfront with grain and caramel in the center. Also has a light earth note with the grassy and floral notes. The body is medium with a lightly dry texture. I drank the 22 oz. myself and it actually really grew on my as I sipped. The ABV was hidden until I stood up. A nice surprise.

This might be the most delicious Imperial IPA I have ever had. Hops, but not chalky. You cannot taste the alcohol at all, never mind being over 10%. Fantastic nose and finish.
