3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is crisp & herbal, with hints of almond, and almost a fresh cut minty smell. The taste gives white pepper, pecan, white grape skin, and some orange zest. The aftertaste is nicely grassy with hints of sweet caramel, and a dry finish. Nicely done -- this is a solid and very tasty DIPA.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Foamy, cloudy copper with a head that dies quickly. Grapefruit aroma punch in the face.
Very bitter with a very bitter aftertaste, but the aftertaste dies quickly. High alcohol is virtually undetectable. Finish is surprisingly dry with pine nuts and slight caramel. On tap @ 3 Cellars in Franklin, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Nice overall appearance of opaque copper although not a great foam head, 1/2 finger. Decent lacing. Aroma is a sweet fruity and floral complexity. Very nice nose. Tastes of creamy plums with slight bitter dry back of the palate. Nice drinkable IPA for a 9.4 abv.

Hazed dark orange.Slight head,slight lace.
Strong herbal pungent aroma. Earthy like.Some caramel malt.
Taste is smooth malty,with a strong herbal piney hop bite.Caramel ,dry toasty robustness.Bitter linger with a dry chaulky toast. Reminds me of Sprechers imperial ipa. Probably not fresh ,but seems is always the case whenever I can find NH stuff.Its ok cant say I really enjoyed it drinks ok though doesnt seem this big there are definatly lots of imperial ipas I would take over this anyday.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Post-Yonah BSP run. The pour is dark orange, with a medium, tan head. Strong citrus nose, with some distinct floral hops, black pepper, and honey notes. This is a very bitter beer, but with a good malt backbone, resulting in a smooth and delicious flavor, with a bitter and spicy finish. The palate is heavy, grainy, and fairly carbonated. Overall, this is a stellar IIPA. The aroma is deep, and the flavor is smooth and pleasant.
