3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. clear red golden, low carbonation, white head. Sweet perfumed american hop aromatics (pine,lychee). Medium full body, slightly sweet&sticky, well balanced by grassy hop dryness, light onions, parsly finish.
Quite drinkable and pleasant enough, but I must admit I am getting more and more annoyed with the style.

Bottle - Hop flavor but not a bitter taste. Citrus notes on the palate. Sweet flavor as well which counters the bitterness. While it has 8.5% alcohol, there is no alcohol taste. Its a good beer but nothing over the top, donít think I could drink several of these in a row.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle. A stylistic favorite of mine that new Belgium did well. I don't love many of their beers but this one hits the mark for an imperial ipa

lx49j.0^ Enjoying this so far. nice and bitter with a very malty and thick base. Donít know what a stonefruit is but I assume I am tasting it right now. Finally the air has cleared as my cat unleashed the beast in the litter box. Peaches. Sitting out of the fridge for over an hour and a half. Very interesting aroma taht I donít quite get but really dig. Itís a deep huff that gains it not the average rim job. Flavour is well worth the $ spent, which wasnít much in this out of control, massive disposable income beer world of Alberta. Early on this was a mean bitter beast and that was cool. Much more syrupy now. Great - just saw the best before date of March 15th. I suck for not noticing that but a small, lightly and only temporarily annoyed FUCK YOU goes to Keg ín Cork. Iím already down to 2 new beers every 2 or 3 weeks. I could have just got more Fat Tug for 7 bux. Either way.... who give a fuck as Iím still enjoying what this íoldí (ha!) beer is offering up to my taste buds. Now I donít feel like reviewing this any more.

Pour is medium at best (Cloudy orange-yellow with faded white head). Aroma is of strong hops/pine/melon/gaoobatat/whatever!) Favors is of hops, melon, pine, and weird bubble gum. Upper level alcohol content is not detected whatsoever. After 3 bags of Old Dutch pretzels aftertaste of insane hops still punched itís way through. Not bad at all. Alcohol content is invisible!!! Bottle from VJís Mart in West Allis/Milwaukee.

New Belgium Rampant is a pretty decent representation of the style. Nice floral aroma rising from a copper pour with a decent white head. Taste has a malty backbone with nice florals with just enough bitterness. Rampant is a very satisfying IPA and doesnít kill you with its Imperial title.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted from bottle. Pours a slightly hazy but mostly clear gold with thick white head. Tons of lacing. Aroma is very citrus and floral. Grapefruit, mango, lemon. Taste is pretty well balanced. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Citrus flavors with a little pine, flowers and grass. Slight perfume taste. A little more light and effervescent than most double IPAs. Average to above average for style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour. Clear gold with moderate head and nice lacing. Smell of hops, flowers, citrus, and very faint skunk. Taste has more malt than I expected but is excellent; I get mango, caramel, light spice, and more pine in addition to the malt backing. Nice bitter finish with a lot of hops. Oily mouthfeel. Pretty solid...definitely one for the hop heads to try!
