3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a crystal clear light orange body and an aggressively large, tight bubbled, bone hued off-white head. Staying power is good as is the lacing. Aromas of orange, citrus, light butterscotch (uh-oh), bready, a touch of rotten fruit, lightly herbal, some pine notes. Some caramel and bready hints. No alcohol. Clean fermentation. Flavors are on the sweeter side of things (surprisingly nearly a neutral balance!), tea, citrus, some bitterness. Caramel, orange, grapefruit. Very easy drinking, not rough in anyway (by aggressive cohumulone, alcohol or otherwise). I wish it were a bit fresher, but at only 2 and change months old, I am not sure how much better it would be fresh (I have been a touch generous). Creamy, smooth, not harsh in anyway, a touch warming. A hint of vegital hop matter in the finish. Medium bubbles, decently dry. Good beer overall.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured golden orange with a foamy head. Smells of hops, maltiness, and a little of the reported peaches. Delicious imperial ipa. Make sure you let it warm up. Good balance between hoppiness and malt body.

bottle thanks to BgThang. Pours amber with a medium white head. Aroma is boozy with lots of citrus and dank hops. Flavor is big and boozy as well with lots of hop character but the bitterness seems very light and lacking.
