3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
APPEARANCE - hazy, golden dark yellow with strong white head hat sticks around a long time.
NOSE - super boquet of tropical fruits! And it gives way to a piney resinous scent. Six months old in the bottle and the boquet is still amazing!
FLAVOR - all resiny hoppy flavor. Slight malty sweetness at the very end.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Look - Bright, light yet cloudy copper. Lots of head. Medium bubble size. Not a lot of lacing in my cup.
Smell - Malt. Floral. Citrus. Pine.
Taste - Orange icecream. Malt. Pine and bitter. Grapefruit.
Feel - No carbonation overload. Bitter on tongue but well masked. Creamy and medium.
Overall - It is bitter but not too bitter. It is sweet but not too sweet. I keep saying I need to have a side by side taste test but I still say Cimmerian is the best.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bomber pours a foggy golden orange with a nice off white head that faded fast. Aroma is citrus and resiny pine. Taste is very fruity, citrus mostly, maybe some mango. Nice malty finish probably helps eliminates some of the bitterness I expected, maybe that’s why I prefer Imperial and double IPA’s.
Overall, this is a Damn good brew, too bad 3 Floyd’s beers are so hard to get!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden with nice head, doesn't thin too quick. Collars nicely around the glass and clings to the sides. Aroma is some malt, piney hops, nice citrus grapefruit scents. Taste is floral and grapefruit up front, descending into the sharp malt and bitterness. Very good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Smells of melon, tropical fruit, the bubblegum I get from the FFF ale yeast. Taste is similar: lots of fruity hops up front, faint bubblegum, the bitterness follows. Some of the fruitiness lasting into the finish. A nice, underlying sweetness that supports a medium bitterness, though far from a sweet DIPA. Slightly soft mouthfeel, medium bodied, average carbonation; bitter finish.

Pours an attractive heavy orange with a two finger head that laces well. Taste is orange, apricot, grapefruit and pine. Very hoppy but not over the top. Excellent imperial IPA.

A: Grapefruit, dandelions, mango, passionfruit T: taste follows nose, get some anise as well. O: Expected a lot more hops! Quite sweet. Too old? Very nice anyway. Really enjoy it, but pretty overpriced in Sweden.
