3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Imperial Pale Ale = Golden/Blonde Ale? Someone should look into this dont you think? Did Rae Carruth add this? Do I need to send a correction? Fuck it who cares? Caramel and floral pepper aroma. Golden amber pour no head. The Snohomish County hoes at the booth were hot in a lets have sex kind of way... oh yeah! = + 1 point for appearance. Light sweet flavors overall, caramel, pale malt, floral bitter finish. Not that interesting. Drinkable I guess.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slight cloudy orange pour some head. Citrus and piney hop aroma with a solid malt background: smells like an amber. Some peach aroma too. Savory flavor abounds; rye bread and medicinal hops. Wet on the palate, mid to big body, some drying on the finish. Seems like a fusion beer of amber and pale. I wish it were a bit more pale and a bit less amber.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Pale orange and bronze colored with beige foam. Mostly herbal hops, caramel malt and toffee in the aroma. The flavor is medicinal hops, citrus and pine resin with some toasted grain sweetness toward the end. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with average carbonation and a bitter, grassy finish. Tastes more like a standard IPA than an APA.

12oz bottle poures a light amber color with thin whit head that leaves light lacing. smells of dough, citrus and sweet malt. Tastes of the same things. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with light carbonation. This is just a mediocre pale ale with a the only plus being the high abv.
