3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear dark amber that is mildly hazy with 1 finger head that is creamy and leaves heavy lacing. Toasted malt flavor that is largely overpowered by the pine and ruby red grapefruit hops. Full bodied with moderate carbonation and long bitter finish. This is a well done imperial IPA

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a very dark amber almost clear brown color. Big malty aroma, caramel malts, toasty character, light resiny hop. Malty flavor as well, same resiny type hop character. Not sure how old this is, not offensive in any way just doesn’t seem fresh.

12 ounce bottle, pours a cooper color with aromas of sweet citrus, and some toffee. Flavors are the same citrus, toffee, and sweetness, ok beer overall would drink again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very sweet, lots of hops. Actually, this seems like a hoppy barleywine. So much sweet, heavy malt that it verges on cloying. It was actually kind of a chore to finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
8/07/2010: Rivertown Hop Baron... Aroma: Sweet, complex citrus. Appearance: Mostly clear copper color; frothy beige head; tiny bubble lacing. Flavor: Smooth toffee maltiness with lots of citrus hoppiness piled on top; goes down easily; some alcohol venting; finishes bitter (like citrus peel/pithe); bitterness is moderate to relatively high. Palate: Medium-bodied; slightly syrupy and oily. Overall: Pretty good.
12 fl. oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #63 for this beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. Active body of clear amber-orange, with a lasting quarter inch of spongy head. Smells of fresh tangerine, pineapple and molasses. Tastes of pineapple, orange toffee, earthy leaf and vegetable, and lightly peppery wood. Medium-heavy body has a finely beaded carbonation. Finishes pithy dry and lightly astringent, but hides the abv well. I like the hop nose, but they seem a tad overdone in the flavor.

12oz bottle - First off, love that red ale aroma! Huge spectrum of flavors from lightly sweet, to a pronounced bitterness. Not sure all the hops meld well together. Turbidity problems. More than okay overall. Happy to try.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a extremely large sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent orange colored body. The mild aroma was hoppy and floral. The semi-flat mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mediumly tingly finish with a mellow hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of mild hops and floral. An OK brew just nothing special.

Such a good beer. Great double/imperial IPA from a local-ish brewery. Exactly why you expect from the hop bill. Great flavor, nice finish, nice body. Great double IPA.
