Another fine imperial IPA. Flavorful but not overpowering at 8.5 ABV. Limited release is fun while it lasts.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at TK Pizza & Pasta. The beer pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes gradually to an outer ring. Stringy lacing. Aroma of piney hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, grapefruit and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a piney hop aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from bottle shared by BDomue. Hazy orange color, average sized off-white head. Aroma is malts, loads of hops, lightly a hint of old hops but the sticky piney resinous hops dominate. Taste malts, hops, loads of resinous and piney, hop bitter and bitter finish. Medium to full body, medoum carbonation. Nice!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a pint glass.
3.75 A: Lightly hazed light orange color. Two fingers of pillowy beige head. Retention is good and a short ring of lacing is left.
3.5 S: Surprisingly spicy hoppiness. Followed by herbal and piney hops and peach and papaya fruitiness. Moderate caramel maltiness with biscuit and just a touch of bready yeastiness.
3.25 T: Tastes like it smells. Hops are - in decreasing strength - spicy, piney, herbal, citrusy. Again lots of peach fruitiness. A touch of vegetables. Caramel and biscuit malts.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and smooth.
3.25 D: Decent overall, but does have a touch of off-flavor and it pretty average otherwise.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clean caramel color with a floral aroma. Taste is intially full floral and bitter but then dissipates into a cities malt flavor. Overall a good beer for the style, full of flavor and not excessively bitter.

500ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, orangey-copper-ish amber colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head.

Taste is dry, citrusy hoppy, notes of lemon, a touch of grapefruit and mint, lime peel, discreet pale malty background. Relatively light body, hence very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sweet, fruity aroma with caramel, citrus, and cherry. Flavor starts with sweet malt and finishes with fruit bitterness. With the heavy malt character this is almost more like an ESB or English style IPA, but in any case this is a really good beer.
