3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from 650mL bottle. Clear, light orangey-yellow with white head. Citrus hop and biscuit malt aroma. Taste is light-medium hops and slightly sweet biscuity malt. Not much finish. Medium body. Alcohol is hidden, balance is nice and light, but it’s not long enough and little bit bland for the style.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
For those of you who don’t know what all those fancy words mean, this is for you. If you can handle most IPA’s, you will like this one. It is smooth, has little to no aftertaste, and at 8.5% alcohol, it will mess you up if you have more than 2. This is really good stuff, Maynard.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
a little zing of hops, a sweetness nearing bubblegum, sawdust. Thick white head on crisp yellow with an orange tinge. A little under carbonated. Resiny bitterness with caramel, lemon and alcohol. Thin finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Six pack from Proof bottleshop. Big crisp lively ipa. Drinkable and not too big. A dry sweet. Even bitter with fairly quick dry finish. Pine, floral, grapefruit, herbal. Wouldn’t mind this now and again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brash golden color out of the bottle with a sticky white head. Sharp hop nose that remind me of peach jolly rancher candy. Syrupy mouthfeel with lots of candied grapefruit, peach pie, and some tropical fruit. There is some light toast, but it is all under the peach marmalade/hop candy flavors. Long dry hop finish with a strong alcohol kick. Not as balanced as most but still tasty if you like hops.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home, pours dark golden, foamy head stays. Aroma fruity, pine peach notes, citrus. First sip refreshing, not very complex, but good. Hoppy aftertaste doesn't linger. Each sip is awakening the senses.

Strong, piney hops define this flavorful, reasonably bitter IPA. Somewhat sticky, resinous mouthfeel, long dry finish. Pine aroma. Enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours absolutely clear, light golden, half finger thick creamy head. Aroma dank pine, tropical, hops, slight fruitiness, slightly bready. Taste smooth, slight bitter, pine, tropical, earthy hops, perfect malt presence to balance it out. Mouthfeel and carbonation medium, dry finish, no alcohol detected. Overall excellent beer, completely balanced in all aspects, not the best out there, but very tasty and drinkable Imperial ipa.
