Bottle 5/19/13. Hazy orange/yellow color. Small head that dissipates. Floral/apricot and hoppy scent. Full mouth fizz sweeps through into a hoppy, alcoholic wash that channels through the center and edges of the tongue. Lively mouthfeel. Bitter aftertaste.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 6-pack of bottles, nice orange with a white collar. Good hop flavor with a little fruit, good bitter happy ending. Nice 8.5% content, not really noticeable except in the warm buzz. Was on sale for $5.99 which makes it a total score.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pour, and bottle poured probably a couple dozen times over the years. Can’t believe I haven’t rated this. Pours a copper color with a foamy head. Hoppy grainy aroma. Flavor is bitter, with some sweet hops mixed in. Finishes on another more bitter note. Always been a bit of a go to imperial for me. What can I say. It’s cheap, strong, and tasty. I’ll keep getting this.
