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!!

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!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Waxys. Dark amber with a small head. Thick and a bit sticky with good carbonation. Aroma is floral and malt. Flavor is a good balance of hop bitterness and sweet malt. Lots of nice hop citrus and grassy flavors. Very good, but I had no idea the abv was as high as it is while drinking this.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I could swear the alcohol is back to 9. something but I could be wrong. Being from NY this is an imperial if any I can get from some convenient stores and usually offered in the supermarkets with bombers. It has a nice aroma and hop flavors of pine and citrus well balanced but the malt is a little thin.
