3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Blue Palms. Pours with a hazy golden hued body with a large white head that lasts and leaves very good lace. Aromas are of hops, citrus tangerine, grapefruit, overripe fruit (which I generally associate with Centennial, but I guess not here). Some sticky caramel presence, resin. Low but still present esters. Flavors are malty, sweet, burnt caramel, crystal malt. Too sweet and distracting in that respect. Hop flavors are grassy, resin, tangerine, rotten fruit, grapefruit. Medium carbonation, sweet, a touch boozy.

Poured from a 500ml bottle, thanks to Mike. The aroma is grassy, slight vegetal, harsh hop character. The flavor slight citrus, harsh bitter, slight tartness, grassy, off hop character. This is a great hoppy mess.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle from bevmo. Pours a translucent copper color with a big off-white head that has good retention. The aroma is medium in strength with pine, grapefruit, something floral and caramel. The taste is bitter hops forward with lots of pine, some mixed tropical fruits and a bit of caramel. The palate was full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finished long and harshly bitter. Overall: A decent brewski, but the bitterness was a tad harsh.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Craft Shack. Pours translucent light orange amber with a slight beige head. Aroma is mixed pine/caramel. Full bodied. Flavor is caramel, pine/resin and citrus and fruit. It has a bitchin hop burn. Yet itís not harsh like the NW monsters. Which I prefer, but to everything there is a season. Season, not saison. Itís good ale!

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