Really fruity nose and well hidden alcohol, this skews toward some tropical and citrus with a little pine back. Clean and big, it goes to the head.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - Earthy hops, pine, grapefruit and nice malts to balance. Clear dark amber with thick white head. Rich pine, orange peel, resin and a smooth bitterness that lasts well pas the finish. Lives up to the "imperial’ standard, and definitely a beer to wreck your palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
As if three different beers. The first and third a hop forward attack on the palate, with the middle drinking (immediately after some food relief) a wonderful orange and grapefruit citrus combo. Very good orange and grapefruit aromas. Above average mouthfeel. Good drinkability. Light orange with s ome lasting head. Recent NJ trip.
