4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask pour into shaker pint glass at Jimmy’s Culpeppers. Aroma is strong herbal and citrusy hops. Appearance is clear amber with finger-width white foamy head with fair retention, decent lacing, fair sparkle. Taste is strong herbal over citrus hops, dominant over malt backbone, well balanced mix of bitter and sweet. Palate is medium bodied with lively carbonation but in an appropriate, refreshing way, crisp lightly bitter finish. Overall, a more flavorful than bitter IPA with a nice refreshing quality.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle@home, from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Strong pungent aroma of slightly sweet red berries and fruits. Amber/golden color with small white head and clear liquid. Medium/strong taste of slightly sour, over aged berries, hops and some malts. Slightly unbalanced with medium/wide taste spectrum and long hoppy and fruity aftertaste. Medium/light body with medium carbonation. Overall, bold though bit stale. A bit more red berries and this would be a very good imperial amber ale.
