Wow. Huge hops from front to back. Powerful yet well balanced Imperial IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Auburn-tan brew, stubby bottle, decent label. Pour makes a nice tinged ivory lather. Mature, malty aroma with toffee and subtle esters. Assertive, woody bittering at first swig. Sweet at times, boozy at others. A slightly ragged balance, barleywine-ish. Chummy, chewy, interesting. Finish is bitter and flawed. ABC Liquors, Betton.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Apricot and grapefruit. Pretty heavy. Dank fruits and bitter on the tongue. Bottle at home. Not bad

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz stubby bottle. Slightly murky dark copper pour, nice bone-colored head that leaves a nice film of lacing. Aroma has some ripening fruit accents, some alcohol, a touch of baking bread. Flavor is just a little too much of everything, no subtlety whatsoever, too much molasses sweetness, bitterness is hidden too deep within the maltiness to make this an enjoyable Double IPA. Mouthfeel is decently thick. Glad this was only 12 oz.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
355ml bottle. Haze gold pour. So this is brewed at jolly pumkin who makes good sour ales. But wow the aroma of this one just fucking sucks, they totally fucked up, smells like any old homebrewed amateur acetone smelling ipa. the flavor is a bit more tolerable but it is sickly sweet like those fruit flavored candy canes, boozy, melon, not as acetony, not great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aromas are wet grass, wood, light caramel, and candied pineapple. Tastes like huge candied tropical fruit with dank grass and strong malt sweetness. Mild bitterness in the finish. Pretty good it wears on you after drinking the whole bottle.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly cloudy deep golden with a thin Rocky white head. Lovely aroma with piney and leafy-floral hops, and a little bitter grassy undertone with a bit of grapefruit pith. Spicy and bitter grassy flavor with some bitterness throughout and much pithiness, but it’s got loads of old world biscuity blondeness as a base. Very bright and bitter and bold while retaining a bit of old germain charm.

Draught@ Jolly Pumpkin Ann Arbor. Rich orange color with small frothy white head, faint hops aroma, low carbonation, slightly sweet taste with strong floral hops flavor, orange peel in the background, long hoppy finish.. Deliciously hoppy!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle (bottled on 6/11/14) - nose is grapefruit. Sip adds a malty backbone. OK, OK. I’m disappointed by this. All of the others I’ve tried from North Peak have been awesome. I guess I raised the bar too high or maybe Jolly Pumpkin can’t brew very well, or both or something else or a combination. Wife loves it and she can have it. Just checked the date - that might be why this is off.

Draft at Dutch’s in August 2014 from notes. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice mix of resiny, citrus, floral hops, toasted bready malts, a splash of caramel, moderate bitterness, this was definitely better than expected.
