3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hop aroma but otherwise light nose. Cloudy orange colour. Surprising big malt profile with good hop balance. Quite spicy aftertaste with bitterness lingering long with warming alcohol in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. A DIPA to enjoy while watching the State of the Union Address (drinking beer always makes these things more watchable). Pours a hazy, burnt orange with fluffy white head and good lacing. Nose is cakey malts, Juicy Fruit gum and grassy hops. Mouth is medium bodied, mildly sweet, oranges, crackers, clover honey, soap, mild tannins, bitter dryness handsome astringency to finish. Iíve had a few of P49BCís beers now and while this isnít my favorite one from them (although itís decent) Iím very happy that they have become available here in the Midwestern US.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy golden-amber with lots of particles through it. Warm cap, frothy, creamy, good retention and some nice lacing. Aromas of hops (which I am not a fan off) with caramel and orange notes. The taste is a little better with the grassy hops balanced with the fruity malts. Hints of wax (and even mint) in the finish. Not the best Imperial IPA, but a true one that is still worth trying. Smooth overall.
