3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Canned 4-30-2010. I keep finding Impy IPAs that I should not be saving this long. Letís open this and see if I can still do justice to it. The tab opens without the usual "pssht," but then the froth comes out. Not a gusher like my Belgians; I only missed a few drops. Once poured, thereís a short, porous, but pretty persistent head over a hazy, light range IPA body. Nose is still pretty sweet and citrussy, but thereís a bit of rubber in there. Nah, I ticked it up to 6 because the malt comes in once the rubber is driven off.
Taste is still fully malty. Hops are there as a bit of orange juice on the side. Palate is nicely thick. Thereís still some "off-ness" that Iím sure comes from my letting it sit far too long. Hops bitterness is subdued, and I still get the occasional note of rubber. But again, thatís my fault. My lesson here: Stop aging IPAís! And yet, Iíve held onto a 120-Min for nearly 10 years in spite of myself.

Trying to find an IPA that I like. Seems like iipa are more agreeable. This had the hops but also included much malt so it was balanced and not just a hop bomb. Resin nice palate light to no citrus some barleywine characteristics

Can. Not quite as aromatic as many IIPA's but flavor makes up for it. Smooth, mild malt with nice hop balance.... Some woody tones as well.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Fresh aroma of hops and malt. Clear medium/dark amber color, off-white head that drops to a full cover, hanging strands of lace. Taste is sweet malt with light rye bitter that pushes a shot of hops through the swallow, only to return to malt, and then tea in a long finish. A complex, nicely balanced brew.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour is a thick almost see through dark orange, thick head that dies after you drink, but retains a minimal presence after with kickass lacing.
smell is caramel, orange, bitter hops, pine, burnt sugar, itís all there and very nice.
Taste has a front of caramel and citrus mix, sort of a dark chocolate orange and rich caramel flavor with the hops and the pine settling in for the after taste, which is sweet combating bitter
