2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2014 Canned 10/15/14, so still fresh by my standards (I think pale ales, including IPAs, are just fine within three months). Popped open the can: ugh. Big pine, catty aroma Iím not fond of in some IPAs. Flavor unfortunately follows suit, though there is also some resin I like. Not noticing the fruit. Maybe this isnít at the right temp. Iíll give it more time and see if I can re-rate. Got a four-packer, and I liked their pale ale, so Iím hoping to avoid drainpours here! NEXT DAY UPDATE: This stuff is still vile to my nose and taste buds. Onion, garlic, body odor, cat pee, pine. Ugh. Had to drainpour the whole pack. Disappointed. :(

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz can from BOTW, shared with Phil. Deep amber/copper with a decent orange-tan head. Really big grapefruit, brown sugar, resinous, peppery, fruity malts, big stuff. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Very big and spicy, peppery, resinous, less fruity and friendly than the nose; off-dry with fairly big bitterness and a long burnt sugar, resinous, peppery finish.

As youíd expect, this falls in between the regular Daleís Pale and the imperial Gubna, but surprisingly itís not as good as either one for me. Good but not as great as the consensus is giving it. Iíd prefer the others.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The color is a very clear orange with a large white head, and the aroma blends caramel malts with citrus and piney hops. The taste is mildly bitter and slightly sweet with a very nice blend of malts and hops. The aftertaste is a lighter version of the taste but contains a lot more hops than malts. The palate blends a frothy yet average-level carbonation, medium body, and a sticky texture.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma is rather heavy malts and almost perfumy lychee and mangos. The taste is just great. Heavy, chewy and thick. Loads of tropical fruits and with an almost "over-ripe" orange sweetness. The texture is a little oily and resiny. Itís a beer that grows hair on your chest.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity and rather sweet IPA with intense and pleasant hop bitterness that lasts well. A fair bit of alcohol warming follows reminding of the almost imperial abv.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer packs a punch but it's excellent. Floral hop aroma, partially opaque copper Amber color, strong lacing and a decent head. Taste is grainy with lots of fruity hops. Nice balance of hop bitterness and sweet brown sugar or caramel malt.
