3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice Impy IPA. Pours amber-orangish into the glass, with a diminished eggshell cap that reduces, leaving thick solid lacing. The nose has some strawberries and floral notes. Solid malt backbone, a bit sweet but of substance, holds its own as the 133 IBU’s coat the tongue. The finish also integrates a touch of fusel oils, providing a nice sting bite. Oily palate and full-bodied, has a silky texture that slides down the gullet ok. Definitely an aperitif, this isn’t one you’ll want to want to chug. Best offering from Pisgah so far on my beer travels.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: A cloudy amber/copper color with a fluffy white head.
S: Very malty, grapefruit, pine, and some floral notes.
T: Quite sweet. Good grapefruit flavor comes through despite a lot of caramel maltiness, and a bit of pineapple as well. A decent hop bitterness rounds things out.
M: Medium body, fairly high carbonation. Coats the tongue well.
D: This beer drinks a bit more like a barleywine than a DIPA, but it’s still got enough of those IPA characteristics to make it a pretty easy drinker.

Bottle courtesy of fishingnet. Poured a hazy amber with an average off white head. Nose is caramel, orange, some tropical fruit, and grass. Medium body with a sugary mouth feel. Taste is fairly balanced with caramel malt sweetness and bitter citrus hop notes. Finishes grassy with mild bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty sweetness and earth on the nose. Mildly funky with notes of feet, and b.o. Not the best nose. Pours hazy copper with an explosive rising head. Obviously overcarbonated. Sweet caramel, toast, toffee, feet, some earthy bitterness. Dirty and dusty. Odd.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice earthy and doughy aroma. Nice lacing on an amber colored beer with a small white head. This one packs a punch. Sharp bitterness with a slight fruityness. Great beer. Get this one if you have the chance.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy, orannge, yet amber hue, forming a great head of craggley foam. Aroma pungent with hoppish pines, resins, mango, cantalope and light malty air. Flavour is immediate of tropical fruit character, both pine hops and a rather smooth malt kick into a balanced symphony of blissful heaven. Truly a triple pale ale, most excellent organic beer.
