3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a creamy white head. Pine trees on the nose, with peaches and sweet malts to back. Flavour of piney hops, grapefruits and other more subtle tropical fruits, and earthy caramel malts - bitter dry piney hops on the finish. Quite solid though nothing distinguishable about this that makes it a standout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought orange, grapefruit, pine, hints of spice and a slight yeasty note. Taste was a mix of grass, bread, biscuit into a bit of caramel, orange, grapefruit, slight old hoppy notes, finishing fairly bitter.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle my great parents brought back from a recent road trip. "Born: 5/27/2011". Orange color with lots of fine, suspended sediment, so beautiful when you shine a light through it. Webby lacing on the surface, and some on the side of the glass as well. Mm. Great, solid maltiness. Mild alcohol but no warm burn, complements the resin hop nicely. The level of hop is very appropriate, it’s conservative but nice. Mild bitterness. Very light, crisp carbonation, long aftertaste. This brew is definitely a sipper, and for that purpose this palate is perfect in my opinion. Solid and satisfying... Another fantastic Imperial IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orangish amber with a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces slightly. Aroma has a good amount of pine with with a bit of sweet grains and a hint of caramel. Flavor begins with a good amount of pine that has a bit of resin and mellows to have some sweet grains in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Bottle. Very slightly hazy orange pour with a small soapy white head. Nose is pine and tropical fruit hops, but I’m getting a bit of aspirin in the nose as well. Wonder if this bottle is a bit old. Moderate palate with good carbonation. Taste is an initial sharp pine and pineapple hop, but its well balanced and finishes clean. Thinking I need to try this a bit fresher.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours an orange amber, clear, with a big, lacy, gold-tinted head. Intensely resinous, grapefruity hop aroma. Oily hoppy body, juicy hops dominate, with the expected long bitter finish. This one struck the right balance for me, not too heavy or sticky, but still an immensely satisfying hop bomb.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Orange liqueur, melon and tinned peach aroma with plenty of alcohol, and hints of wine gums, Darjeeling and honey. Dusty copper with a slender magnolia head. Slick, slightly hot and grapefruity with a streak of softer, tropical Fruit Salad hop and leafy Darjeeling. Honeyed, floral..but somewhat booze-laden and charmless, without the brilliant hop freshness of some of the paler, lower ABV US beers I’ve had this week.
