3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 Pours a medium yellow-golden color with a big, foamy, lasting head. Medium carbonation. Hints of fruit and caramel in a fairly mild aroma. It leads with an almost nutty malt flavor and then finishes with a crisp but not overwhelmingly bitter finish that lingers nicely. It’s not as thick and chewy as some IPAs, which isn’t a complaint. Very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Clear golden amber, thick off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of resinous hops and apricots. Strong bitter finish, but not as much hop flavor as straight bitterness. Not much malt character, and a bit light of body for the bitterness, some caramel notes early in the finish. Not bad, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to find it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a golden color with an off-white head. Aroma has lemons and spices. Taste is slightly creamy and very hoppy with some interesting barnyard flavors. Some cheese as well with a malty backbone. Overall pretty good!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a bright, clear brass color with a respectable head. Gentle lacing. Aroma is very delicate hops and fruit. Taste is heavier on malt and lighter on hops than one would expect from an imperial IPA. Overall a pretty good beer, but I think it rates low for its category.

Very peachy hopped aroma. Light brass and effervescent. Initial taste of hops and slight malt. Dry finish. Fairly light for an IPA...just to my liking.

Beer poors light gold with a large white head. Aroma I of citrus with a minor solvency note. Flavor is medium sweet, dank citrus hop, and medium high bitterness. Body is medium, with hop sticky texture, and low carbonation. Overall nice beer. I’d like to have this again.

Aroma is very sweet soapy citrus. Appearance is clear brown light carbanation creamy off white head that stays thought the beer. Thick lacing. Very nice appearance. Taste is very citrus piny with some floral vegetable very nice and clean. Very easy to drink for a double that is fairly high in alcohol. Overall one of my favorite imperials yet.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Six pack from the local Harris Teeter here in Huntersville, NC. Pours a nice copper color with a small head. Hoppy notes abound in the aroma - taste has a subtle citrus note with a bit of sweetness to accompany the bite the alcohol gives this. Clean finishing, very drinkable. Well played New Belgium.

Bottle from local gas station in the Dells. Pours a orangish copper with an off-white head. Aroma has major bittering hops. Citrus, pine, pitted fruits and more citrus. Taste is of grapefruit and pine with plenty of caramel back. Some sweet and pitted fruits. Medium bodied. Quite strongly bitter. A nice one if you are looking for a bitter IPA.
