3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. can. Pale yellow and transparent, with an active head on the pour. The head fades fairly quickly and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is mostly citrus with some resinous pine in the background. Taste is mostly citrus, grapefruit and tangerine, and overpoweringly so, as it really wreaks havoc on the palate. Perhaps the Summit hops are not to my taste, but this seems overdone. There’s not enough behind the bitterness to carry it properly, especially onto the back of the tongue for the finish. It’s kind of like POP! and you’re done. It’s an ok brew, but for OB repeats, it’s still Ten-Fidy and Gordon.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours a fairly clear golden orange with plenty of white head and lacing. A quality citrus nose with a bit of spruce. It has citrus flavors that are highlighted by orange flavoring with some floral that is highly bitter on the palate.

Can - big foamy head, medium straw color, good size pineapple and coconut aroma and flavor (was not expecting that, but it's a very good thing, reminds me of a piña colada!), good malt backbone, fairly bitter finish with some lingering coconut notes, excellent overall

A tad bit syrupy. Descent aroma but truthfully I have already had to much to drink tonight.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at OB tasty weasel. Standard looking beer with a good albeit kinda weak aroma. The flavor is out of this world. Mango, kiwi, pineapple with a sharp, hoppy finish. This was very good, and I will be buying some soon.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Canned 5/12/2015 enjoyed 7/23/2015 in a tulip/snifter.
Look - Lighter than normal orange. Relatively clear. Thick ivory head but I over poured. Medium sized bubbles. Lacing retains until it is gone.
Smell - Grass. Malt. Caramel. Light citrus.
Taste - Dank. Hoppy bitterness. Grapefruit and other citrus. Balanced well with pine and malt. One drink one comes out, the other the next. Spice.
Feel - Medium to heavy. Carbonated throughout. Alcohol burn but not overpowering.
Overall - I expected more of a Triple IPA for some reason which did not come through in the look but did in the taste. Good beer.

Burk från SB 2015. EN kompetent välgjord klassisk DIPA som tyvärr inte är superfärsk när den når SB. Det gör att den specifika humlemixen är svår att urskilja. Men balans och tryck i beskan är det inget fel på. Smarrigt.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours as clear as they come, orange, slightly darker than your average IPA. The aroma fills the room and putting ones nose to it is a experience! Mandarin Citrus in abundance, very sweet aroma.
Taste is the same with the added dankness and heavy bitterness that makes it an IIPA. No alcohol whatsoever on the taste, some slight warming going down the throat.
2015 version, probably one of the best Imperials i have ever had. Wondrous beer!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Burk från Systembolaget. Klar guldfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Härlig doft som går åt mango/persika. Kraftig tung dricka, känns att den är stark utan att bli spritig. Söt med söt beska i eftersmaken.
