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.

Light copper, almost yellow. Tons of citrus and slight pungent hop aroma (thank you for using SUMMIT!) Flavor is tropical fruits, super summit spice, and lots of bitterness. Subtle honey sweetness when balanced with the heavy hops. Great stuff.

Can. Clear golden color, medium white head working down to a thin lacing. Citrus and floral dominate the aroma. Sweet citrus and berry fruit taste. Medium-thin body, sticky texture, long & dry bitter finish. Nice double IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
reminded me of Belgian blonde ale but with decent hopping presence. Pale in color, malt oriented more than hops, thick textured and foamed, above medium body, aroma dominated by lime zest, floral-grassy tones, bitternes- average for style, medium lasting aftertaste. Interesting for one time.

Intense malty background with distinct caramel, pleasantly intense citrusy hops. light pine, bit of tropical fruits. Moderate sweet with quite intense bitterness. yes, its 10 abv, yes its quite complex, but its helluva refreshing as well

Pours a golden yellow with a foamy white head. Has a citrus and hops aroma. Flavor is tropical fruits, spice, and lots of bitterness. Somewhat sweet, but the finish is quite dry. Great beer!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Ok, thatís a bitter beer. Has some kick too. Gold in color with a nice head. It is weirdly strong on the citrus side. Taste is well like a really bitter, alcohol tasting IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma is hops - spruce, grass. Pours a yellow/orange, clear with a big frothy head mostly diminishing with excellent lacing. The taste is bitter. The body is light to medium, creamy with average carbonation and the finish is a long bitter. Very good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Rustico. Pours a clear dark golden orange color with one inch of white head that settles quickly to lacing. Aroma is citrus with slight spicy quality. Flavor is aggressive and big: hoppy bitterness with swet malt presence that is ultimately masked by forward alcohol presence. Bitter aftertaste, overall unbalanced to my taste.
