4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from The Wine Emporium November 2013. This is a big hoppy beer that takes a bit of work to get through. Citrus dominates the aroma and the finish is long and dry.

Taster at brew haha - nose is citrus. Sip adds lemon peel and a malty backbone. Fairly bitter. Somewhat light for the style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours amber with a large head.
Nose shows overt resinous, piny and grassy hops with sweet backing from lashes of clean malt.
Very hoppy flavours. Very piny, grapefruit-like and citrussy. Orange peel or orange bitters. A fair bit of sweet clean malt balances things out.
Carbonation is too high.

This IMPERIAL IPA is a very piney bitter, citrus tasting beer. This beer is probably only going to be enjoyed by real beer drinkers that enjoy good beer . Not the best IPA but worth a try.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Clear amber pour with golden highlights and a small, creamy, off-white head. Decent retention. The bouquet is a fruity, spicy swirl of honey, cantaloupe, mango and pluot with a subtle mélange of ground pepper - white, green and pink. Medium to full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and adequate carbonation. The flavor is fruity, spicy and medium-bitter – tropical fruits, melons and caustic peppercorns. Bitter, abrasive, dry finish. I would have enjoyed this more without all the spicy, peppery hops. They mauled the fruity components.

Thought it was a little hard on the throat. Loved the bubblegum, butterscotch, and clove hints, though.
