Pours partly tan cloudy. Minimal head. Smells of spice and citrus. Bitter muted alcohol taste. Lingers bitter on palate, weak finish. Ok IIPA, but wish it tasted better.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
