3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Single bottle and served in my GI IPA tulip: Pours a clean deep golden hue with a initial huge head and excellent lacework. The aroma is fronted by juicy and dank hop esters like mango, pink grapefruit, watermelon and some resiny notes. Along for the ride is some biscuit and husky malts, dash of Grains of Paradise too. The taste is more refined, moderate bitterness and citrus notes over a layer of basic malts, some sharpened spice tones upon the finish but otherwise a very average DIPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Since DogFish 90 left Memphis I have been looking for a good IPA alternative. This one is with drinking but not in the DF90 category. Been pours a nice coppery color with a rapidly diminishing off white head. Aroma is nice with notes of citrus. . Taste is heavily hopped , intensely bitter with a moderate malt backbone. Not bad

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is pretty light for an imperial IPA. Mostly citrus hops and caramel malts on the nose. Flavor is slightly watery at first but the citrus hops and alcohol warming come out on the finish. Not the best imperial IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle-Poured slightly hazy golden color with minimal white head. Aroma-pine, grapefruit, pear and hint of sweet malt. Taste is piney and lemony, a little astringent with pear flavor in the finish. Palate-has thin body and above average carbonation. Finish is dry and bitter. Overall an ok beer, not very smooth but also very drinkable for me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours yellow gold, nice fizzy white head, which disputes but maintains a lace cap for the duration. Slightly peachy aroma. Taste is distinctive dry piney hops, with an almost smokey malt backdrop. Palate is clean with bit of lingering smoke/pine. Overall a respectable Imperial IPA.
