Bottle. Pours a deep amber-reddish with a soft frothy amber-white head. Smells of bittersweet hops, grapefruit, and pine. Taste is bitter grapefruit peel and pine with a slight peppery finish. Nice.

has a nice pine hop aroma with a touch of citrus. A nice body, caramel malt mixed well with a nice pine hop with a good hop aftertaste.

Really solid Imperial ipa. I got a big garlic aroma initially. I donít think Iíve ever had a beer that hit me with garlic like that. Very tropical and sweet smelling as well. Taste is nice tropical fruit with a big punch of bitterness and sweet maltiness. Lotís of malt but itís not too overpowering. I always get worried when I get that big brown sugar malty sweet aromy but this one keeps on the hoppy side so thats a plus. Good stuff, I bet itís really good on tap. Cheers!

Bottle - Pours a clear copper with a fairly big, frothy head that left some lacing. Great aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, and some pine. Juicy mouth feel with the aromas continuing. Some bitterness with the finish. My kind of beer.

Bottle. A hazy, dark golden to amber beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is rather piney, with resins, pine cones and a touch of pale malts. Bitterness, pale malts, resins and a nice citrusy, piney hoppyness. Full body and a nice carboonation level, with some palte malts, resins and grapefruit peel. Lasting resiny finish. Not bad this one, but nothing extraordinary going on. 150621

ICEatALAMO (1173) - Troy, Michigan, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle. The pour is a rich vibrant orange, looks nice. The aroma is full of citrus hops. The taste is very bland, almost watered down, which doesn't match the color or the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle, thank you Bjorn. Has a nice sweet but still nice being hop forward. Good initial complexity, with a finish slighty toward the tale end of being too hoppy.

Coppery gold in color with a whitish head. Full, strong, punchy with a lot of bitter hoppiness. Pine, resin, citrus zest. Not too heavy, not too earthy.

Bottle from local grocer.. Color is a subtle amber with hints of gold almost a whiskey hue.. Very light aroma,, nothing punches my nose immediately. Light floral at best.. Now the palate.. Very crisp, and hop infused.. Notes of syrup linger on the backside... I wish it had more of those attacking hops that the west coast made famous but I realize this ISNT a Westcoast DIPA.... all in all its a great brew. Dare I say it almost has a hint of Pliney the Younger in it.. Or is that blasphemous??
