3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Co-op in Davis, CA. Pours gold with a foamy white head. Aroma of noble hop. Medium body with creamy/foamy carbonation. Flavor is a bit bready with a lot of grassy/spicey hop. It’s pleasantly bitter and quite tasty. There’s malt sweet but the bitter seems to stay on top without losing the sugar. Nice.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Bevmo. Pours clear yellow with a nice white head and a faint floral aroma. Yes, there is probably enough ingredient to warrant an "imperial" label, but the flavor just isn’t there. Some light malt and a sort of crisp bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Golden, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   HUGE grassy nose.   Getting straw, hay, and maybe even alfalfa.   I have never smelled anything so... well... grass like.   Nice sweet grassy malts up
front.   Lots of sweetness.   Not as strong as the nose suggested, and thankfully not dank or musty.   Bright on the tongue, yet sweet.   Body and mouthfeel are full bodied.   Soft dry grassy finish.   Very minor
honey and pale bready notes.   Smells a bit offputting, but thankfully the sweetness and lack of ubergrass helps this beer out.   Still, happy to share this bomber as I am unsure I could do it by myself.
