3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy golden orange from the can with thin lacy white head that sticks lightly. Aroma is sweet citrus up front, odd boozy caramel malt middle, then it falls off instantly. Taste is sweet, citrusy, booze is more hidden but again falls off quick. No real finish except a late burn in your stomach. Too much but at the same time not enough going on, not too great.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A heavily hazed, bright dried apricot body supports a 1.5" frothy-smooth bone white head which creates a dense wall of lace as it settles
Flavors and aromas packed with peaches and grapefruit trimmed in pine needle and alcohol with a big rounding savory hop component on a smooth, mildly carbonated medium body finishing fairly clean with very light tact, and a slightly spicy note of warmth, residuals echoing the aroma and flavor with a stronger dank influence, very drinkable for the style

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
courtesy of Laurent Mousson; canned - fully cloudy copper-orange beer with a long lasting foam; solid hoppy aroma, resiney, rapes and litchies; full-bodied, pretty subtle carbonation, lively and tasty; hugely bitter, some apparent alcohol in a long hoppy aftertaste with more resiney notes and ripe fruits (litchies and melon)

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. can. Pours hazy and cloudy with minimum froth. Aroma is of lemon and citrus bitter flavors. Palate is heavy on the bitterness side but refreshing, while the taste is offensively delicious...extremely high IBUs, hoppy and explodes with citrus flavors. Overall: Expensive beer, but the craft beer love will appreciate the master Brewers concoction.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap. Big and citrusy. Extremely bitter throughout with a wet mouthful. A bit muddled with a sweet mouthfeel and finish. Dangerously drinkable.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured from can to glass. Hazy honey hue with creamy white head that lingered. Aroma is malt, pineapple, ethanol, orange, pine, straw. Mouthfeel is chewy with a full body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a nice hop bitterness in the following and a strong ethanol finish. Overall this wasn’t a very enjoyable IPA. It’s just too disjointed and hot...tastes like a moderate IPA with a shot of vodka poured in.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can with "offensively delicious" printed around the top. Hmmm. Cloudy peach colored pour with fluffy tan head. Piney, citrusy spicy aroma: hints of nutmeg. Bitter with tobacco and some nice smooth backbone. Nice long bitter linger. Good and maybe even better on a long hike.

Can poured a foggy orange hue w/ small white head diminishing to a ring. Moderate malty aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a bold long lasting bitter finish. Tastes are orange, hay, grass, pine and cantaloupe. Full bodied, balanced mouthfeel and warm finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber coloured body with a copper glow and a thinnish two centimetre tall head. Aroma of tons of hops, pine, resin and a lot of honey and sweetness from fruits. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong rich hoppy flavour with resin and PNW hops the strongest flavours coupled with a distinct honey and caramel sweetness that tags the beer nicely. Aftertaste shows some malt balance, but also some apricot and pear fruit flavours. Overall, a very nice Imperial IPA with tons of flavour and an alcohol that is somewhat hidden, but the sweetness brings out the severity of this beer. I sampled this pint on draught at Publick House with haddon90 on 06-June-2014!
