3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of caramel, tropical fruit, with the slightest hint of pine. A clear medium amber pour with a thin, rapidly dissipating, white head and no lacing. The taste is a pleasant combination of malt sweetness and hop bitterness - both seem to be happening at the same time, which is an interesting experience. Tropical fruit and sweet malts with a bitter finish and aftertaste, and perhaps some minior alcohal warmth thrown in the mix. Medium body and medium carbonation. Oveall, a nicely balanced IIPA.

Never really been a huge Imperial IPA fan, but this brew most definitely changed that perception the first time I had it a few years back. Re-visited this brew recently and remembered how amazing it is. Scary drinkable, great hop presence with a solid malt backbone. Extremely balanced and boozy in the best way possible.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark gold body with a fleeting off-white head.
Minimal aroma of sweet malt and flowery hops.
The flavor is well balanced but not too bitter and not much sweetness.
Full bodied but not impressive.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured into glass. I picked this up on my most recent trip to Colorado, even though I’ve never really been a big fan of Ska Brewing. The flavors and aroma’s were mostly hoppy and floral, as I expected. Not sure how long this has been out but I’m sure a fresher bottle would have pleased me more.

Smells musty, looks similar to tea.. Deep, strong flavor for an IPA. Would drink again
