3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear deep amber with a smallish white head and medium carbonation. Aroma is very piney, floral and a bit bready. Not really "over the top" as I have come to expect from DIPAs. Flavor is medium to heavy bitter with a light malty sweetness. Medium to full bodied, sticky texture. Very abrupt dry finish. A very nice beer from what is becoming one of my favorite breweries.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Little head and lacing. Hazy orange color. Citrus hop aroma similar to hopslam, however when tasted does not finish nearly as well. Has strong alcohol bite. Overall good imperial IPA.

Hazy orange-amber body with a very good, off-white head. Patterned sticky lacing left on the glass.

Bottled@The Bishops Arms, Umeĺ. Hazy amber colour, small white head. ARoma is glue, fruits, grass and some crisp maltiness as well. Flavour is hoppy, some alcohol and grassy notes with also some mild wooden and sweet malty notes to it. Slightly too much on the boozy side of things.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours deep gold into a tulip. Pancake head with good retention recedes leaving scant lacing. Sourdough and grapefruit aromas. Soft with sweet pineapple and caramel upfront turning to hot resin and grapefruit before the lasting overripe banana finish. Meh.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap @ Hebron BrewHaus / Hebron KY --- Clear deep maple amber color, ivory head that drops to a thick rim, splashes of lace. Taste is malt with mild caramel that scoots through mild carbonation to enough citrus hops to balance. This is good, but seems light for an imperial.
