3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
First of all, this bottle has horrendous label art. No matter. The pour is a clear reddish color. Thin white head. Aroma is orange and some sort of cleaning product. Like a citrus pine sol sort of thing. Flavor is totally thin and watery. Not sure how you manage this in an IIPA. It has the boozy candy sweetness of an imperial, but then no palate whatsoever. Flavors are fine. Just some candied orange peel and crystal malt. Not much bitterness, but who needs balance when there is so much flavor and body missing already. No off flavors to complain about, but not much to like.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice light amber, creamy white head. Alcohol and hops in the nose. Bitter. Middle is sweet malt tempered by alcohol. Finish is bitter, alcohol at first, but luckily hops closes out. Somewhat unbalanced for me.

Overall a very good beer. I would like a little more aroma. Alcohol taste is a little much but not excessively. Great value though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can, poured in a pint glass, in Texas. Very solid head, foam sticks very nicely on the glass. The aroma is outstanding, definitely some top notch hops in this one. The 9% ABV is completely lost in the smooth balanced flavor of this beer, you can tell it's big, but you'll look down and the cans start piling up, very drinkable.
