3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy golden orange with a bit of white sticky head. Smell is caramel malt, hops and resin. Taste is malty up front then a splash of bitter resin on the finish. Medium body, light carbonation.
Thought this was way to malty for an IPA

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear pale amber with a full white head that shrinks to a good cover, sheets of lace. Good looking. Nice aroma of light malt and strong hops. Taste is solid lightly caramelized malt that is taken by solid citrus hops. Both sides move to a finish to savor. A deceptively strong IPA, most excellent. High recommendations.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Single bottle from Julio’s. Pours out a hazy light orange color. White head fades to nothing. Strong aroma of sweet burnt rubber and spice. Flavor is sweet and malty up front with layers of muddled hop bitterness. Nothing stands out. very strong finish with some fruity bitterness.

On tap at Macche in Rome. Pours yellow/orange peel color, unfiltered with a white solid foamy head. Nose: background hint (very light) of caramel, speck ham. Mouth: smoked-fried bacon, lemon grass, blast of bitter hops. One of the most peculiar Imperial IPAs I have ever drunk!

A very hoppy, fresh and wonderful IPA. Long, fresh, delicious aftertaste. True, but distinct IPA made but one of the Northeast best breweries.

Draft sample at Hopgeist 2014 pour light gold. Nose dank earthy hop with some floral character. Taste more floral, citrus, and slight grassy hop. Fairly sweet early mid palate. Lingering bitter finish. Certainly don’t get the 120 ibu.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2014 Aroma of pineapple and grapefruit, citrus, alcohol and a touch of honey. Taste of citrus pine biscuit malt, grapefruit juicyness. They keep the juiciness well balancedcwith resinous pine characteristics. Works very well. This years is great. This beer should be rated yearly not as just itself. I don’t think they have used the same recipe twice and I highly doubt more than that. Always one of my favorites. This one is very well balanced without compromising complexity.
