4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 20/20
22 oz. bottle purchased at Safeway in Lynnwood, WA. Pours a beautiful dark/clousy amber color with an off-white head. Aroma: The obvious grapefruit and pine you would expect in a powerful IPA. Flavor: Similar to the aroma profile, with a hint of spice and orange peel. Well done Red Hook!

Golden copper in color. Okay head with very good lacing. Pine, hint of citrus are in the aroma. Very heavy bitter flavor. Full-bodied beer with a long, abrupt finish that leaves a bitter film in your mouth. I love imperial beers but not all that great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Redhook. Poured a golden honey color with a small white head. The nose is "dirty" as previously described. There is no good floral hop in this thing. It is a strange hopped smell with some rich caramel malt as well. Pretty much a two note smell followed by a one note taste of rich malt. There is a strange bitter hop taste to this that isn’t like the IIPA’s i’ve had. I really like IIPA’s but not this one that much. Good try Redhook.

1 PT. 6 Oz. Bottle. Pours somewhat clear and amber/orange in color. Citrus notes tingles the nose. The taste is a little different from most IPA’s but still quite refreshing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice, hoppy aroma. The pour is a hazy, strong, amber. A real smooth ale with strong hop flavor. A pretty solid IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint at Red Hook. Golden amber in color. Aroma is weak but pleasant. Extra malty on this one but not complaining, it is still an outstanding beer and finishes top notch with just the right bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice clear copper color. Great hop aroma. Not much head retention. Citrusy, a little piney and not really malty. Body is very thin and malts do not add much to the flavor. Nice bitter finish and a pleasant hop aftertaste. Very drinkable for the abv.
