3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear straw-amber with minimal head. Muted aroma - a bit of citrus hops, alcohol, and some sweet notes. Flavor is very hop-driven - a lot of citrus, and fairly bitter. A bit of malt helps balance things out. Not bad, but a bit dull for an Imperial IPA.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smells like a flower garden with a slightly citrus note. Golden amber with a forever lasting white head. Extremely complex hop bitterness in the aftertaste, great sparkling palate with a medium body to balance out the dry finish. Not over the top in any way other than quality and flavor, just wonderful. Extremely fresh tasting.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle pour into Goblet. Half-inch head faded out pretty quickly, but leaves nice lacing. Aroma is hops, hops, and a hint of floral and citrus notes. Appearance is golden with a slight reddish tint, not quite as deep as copper. Taste is, as expected, very hop forward, sweet and bitter but very clean and with an abrupt end with just a slight soft lingering bitterness. Medium body with a slightly oily texture. Carbonation is visible but not fizzy, nor flat -- average I guess if there really is such a thing with IPAs. You may note I use a lot of modifiers here. This is a complex beer but the bottom line this is a pretty sublime IPA and if youíre into those sorts of things you should try this brew.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Very light hop aroma. Clear medium amber color, bubbly white head cover, lots of lace dots. Taste is solid caramel malt with a hint of apricot that adds full-bodied citrus hops on the swallow. But, the hops arenít strong enough to take over, so both sides move 50-50 to a lingering finish. Overall, a surprisingly lightly hopped brew, or, is it just the strong malt? I like it.

1.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Mildly sweet perfumy aroma from a bottle. Oh my, big knuckles in the mouth. Twisting and turning almost fruity, but not, nastie real nastie. Terribly on style. Hey, did somebody forget to wash teh hand soap out of my container? Large as life and bring you to strife. Quite a lick in the face. Knock you down and kick you a few times, Terribly terribly on style, wew. Getting a little dizzy near the end of the session.
