5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
A wonder of cloudy ambergolden waterfalls pouring down my glass. Aroma of rapeseed honey and flowers. A complex full body filled with hops, hops, hops and sweetness. Honey and a hint of orange zest.
Might be the best one ever.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark yelow. Sadly it’s about one year old and the rating isn’t very accurate. Hoppy, fruity, sweet aroma. Full body and creamy mouthfeel with notes of hops, citrus, sweet malt, but not so strong.

Pours a beautiful peachy-amber with a wildly frothy white head that lasts long and leaves copious lacing. Nose is intensely hoppy with rich malts and tropical fruit notes. Taste is on the bitter side. Full body. Mild carbonation. Very nice brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours very hazy with hop particles, for the style very promising!
Aroma is slightly held back by age on my bottle it feel like, still lots of citrus and pine just not the "room filling" aroma bomb i expect from hop juice style Imperials!
Taste is very dank right from the start, citrus, pine, the usual suspects really.
This was one of my first Imperial IPA:s back in the day, loved it back then, now it just seems like there are so many options that does the same trick but slightly better! Still an really top notch ale!
