4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Definitely has a hoppy smell, but there are more layers to it - not just a hop bomb. Aggressive but not overly sweet malt bill to balance things out. Nice natural grassy aroma. Pours a dark golden color with a lot of carbonation and a fairly large white head of foam. Nice, refreshing, easy drinking taste. Hops are present, but subdued - you can barely tell itís a DIPA. Honey-like taste in the background, sort of like Bells Hopslam. Great served cold on a hot summer day. I could drink this one out of the bottle while barbecuing. Palate is just oily/slick enough, just fizzy enough. Again, a great balance. I really enjoyed this one; I will be sure to remember it. Sometimes you donít want a hop assault, you just want a nice refreshing beer. While other DIPAs are all trying to outdo one another to see who can have the most hop bitterness, Unearthly has carved out a niche as being the easy drinking one. Well done, Southern Tier.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy amber orange with a one finger off white head with decent lacing. Aroma is of pine, citrus, sweet malts, caramel, and some herbal hops. Taste is pine, citrus, herbal hops, sweet malts, caramel, pepper, and some rye. Has a medium body with a oily, semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi-moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty, well balanced DIPA that lean east coast style.

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.

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.

I donít understand why itís 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 youíre having only one - because itís 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.

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 Fín Done!!
