4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear light amber, with small persistent head. Aroma is herbal with mild citrus. Taste has a strong malt punch, warmth of alcohol, and good balance. Nice Imperial!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from mix 12. Pours a cloudy golden amber, with a small whie head. Smells of sweet resinous hops, with the sweetness being especially strong. Taste pretty much follows with a relatively bitter taste being beaten by the alcohol at the finish. Relatively light bodied with good carbonation, leaves quite a resinous taste in your mouth.

On draft. Amber color with one finger head. Resiny and sweet malt taste. You can taste the alcohol slightly. A big beer and a good one

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, greenish tan, from the looks of things in a dark room. Muted, fresh, tangy aroma. Slightly savory up front, a little citrus gel, hoppy but not a bomb, some off starchy-veggie notes but not a major flaw. Tight carbonation, a generally crisp mouthfeel and finish. Pretzel tones at the end, amidst an overall hoppy-boozy thing. Ok, good, but just another 2xAIPA. On tap, Baby Proof, day before Thanksgiving.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I don’t understand why it’s an imperial India pale ale. I think it may be forging new ground. This rich, stately, tour de force is the one beer to have if you’re having only one - because it’s intense and two will kick your butt.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a copper color with tons of floaters. No head at all. Just a little cling of white to the edge of the glass. A sweet grainy aroma. Carbonation is low. Taste starts a bit sweet and grainy and then finishes with orange pith. Lots of alcohol in the finish.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a bomber into my pint glass. This bottle says 9.5%. First drink was a blast of flavors, sweet then hops, made my ears warm. I think a new category of beer should be started for this, Imperial orange IPA. Well F’n Done!!

23oz bottle pours a pale brown color with a bit of head. Piney hop flavors but a little boozy.

12 oz. Bottle. From craft 12 pack with Gemini and 2xipa. Nice hop. Need to ease into it. But refreshed quite well. Definitely a top ipa.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a cloudy gold with no head retention and minimal lacing. What it lacks in appearance it more than makes up for in aroma and taste. Smells of alcohol, citrus and pine. Outstanding!
