4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I mean...good lord. Bottle, pours golden orange-ish, tight soapy white head. Big dankness on the nose: pineapple, tropical fruit, some orange peel, a touch of cat pee, whiff of grass. Robust malt bill really props up the mouthfeel, which is big and bready, but man are those hops pungent. Just super-clean, super-drinkable. Near perfect.

Pour is golden yellow with a small amount of tight white head. Huge citrus, mango, and grapefruit with a hint of pine resin in back. A faint touch of sweet malt up front. Taste is more grapefruit with a hint of bitterness. Malts are so faint, hops are huge. Resin and grapefruit through the finish. Body is light, very well carbonated and quite dry.

Poured from a bomber. Aroma is citrus and tropical fruit. Flavors are tropical fruit, citrus, melon, light pine, and a tangy tartness. Amazing beer! No trace of bitterness or alcohol content. Another epic beer from TG!!

Overall a very nice DIPA. Aroma does have some of that oniony stuff. A bit of that onion in the flavor otherwise a little sweet breadiness, nice hop backbone

A huge year to say the least for the folks brewing in Decorah. Bottling line finally up and going and releases of Kentucky Brunch, Mornin’ Delight, XHops, and Sosus have them one of the most talked about breweries in the country. Early in ’13, Sue and Sosus were released simultaneously and people went crazy for it, and still do. This Imperial IPA focuses on the mosaic hop bringing out citrus and tropical fruit notes along with some dankness that make this an easy pick for the Hot 25 in Eastern Iowa!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell - London. Huge thanks to Ryan for hooking us up with this one. Pours clear gold with a creamy, white head. The nose has lots of piss, mango and grapefruit. Medium sweet flavor with big peach, grapefruit, pee, light pine needles, light grass. Medium to full in body with fine, creamy carbonation. Moderately resinous to finish with some sugary bread, more mango, peach, tangerine, pee and grapefruit. Really solid.

Nice and interesting IPA. Goldish copper pour. Citrus and tropical nose. Someone at tasted noted some dank and onion aroma...not unpleasant though. Lots of pine in the hops with grapefruit and bitterness that linger. Sweetness towards the end. Really interesting taste.
