3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear bronze color with a thick head and lovely lace. Aroma knocks you to your knees with something floral, something citrusy and a little bit of skunk. Flavor is intense bittersweet, with a medicinal aftertaste. Kinda weird.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at irish mile, pours a bright copper orange with small to medium white head and lacing. Smell and taste of dank hops, orange candy, ultra bitter pine, and lightly toasty malt. She’s a big girl but still easy going at 10.4% and not overly sweet. I Don’t drink these often but can still appreciate its super hoppy profile.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
24 oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Very hazy dark orange with a good size white head. Good retention and lacing. On the nose, it’s citrusy hops that come through the most. Strong booze presence second. Some sweet malts come through in the end. The taste is rather simple, unfortunately. Grapefruit hops initially, with a fair amount of booze. Sweet malts come through afterward with a lot of lingering bitterness. Tasty, but one dimensional. Thick, heavy, and sweet. Medium carbonation. Strong booze finish and a lot of bitterness hanging around after the swallow. Tasty, but one-dimensional and boozy.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
An overall delicious Imperial IPA! Drank from the bottle, has a fragrant, slightly floral aroma, and an excellent balance between bitterness and a strong hoppy taste. Smooth finish that will leave you craving another sip! Will definitely be buying this stuff again! And at 10.4% it’s a good bang for your buck.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355 ml bottle, vintage 2013, BB date 31.05.2014, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. ABV is 10.4%. Orange colour, slightly hazy. Large head, slightly off-white. Strong hoppy aroma, notes of orange marmalade and pine needles. Very sweet and very bitter flavour, fruity and piney hops galore, but the sweetness and bitterness are nearly too much for me.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle pour into goblet. Aroma is caramel with floral notes, Color is amber/orange-red. Pours clear with a minimal head of tan foam. Taste has a medium sweetness and is very bitter, with a bit of a a salty aftertaste. Texture is creamy going down, leaving a slick feel on the tongue. The finish is quite long and bitter. Overall this beer delivers on its promise both with the hops and the alcohol, the latter of which is not overpowering to the taste but you will notice the effect of almost immediately.
