3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a basic yellow golden color with a small white head. Aroma of grassy, resinous hops, citrus, pale malts, bread, and sugar. Flavor of herbal, grassy hops, pale malts, crackers, toast, and just a wee bit of citrus. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a semi-sweet, malty mouthfeel with a bit of grassiness. Nice IPA but overrated.

Pour orange with white head good lace. Aroma caramel, citrus, grapefruit, resiny hops, pine, skunk, tangerine. Taste caramel, grassy, citrus, grapefruit, floral, light sweetness, resiny hops. MF medium body with good carb. Really good brew well done and not as normal as some of the other double ipa’s.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the bottle at GABF. Pours an attractive golden orange with a stiff white head. Nose is really nice, fresh and bright citrusy hops, also some nice resiny notes. Some biscuity malts peek through as well. on tasting, really nice level of bitterness and dry hop flavor. Beer finishes dryly from the palate and just really serves as a hop delivery vehicle, in the greatest way. Really fantastic IPA.

This is a wonderful example of an imperial IPA, amazingly smooth, with beautiful blend of hop flavors (which isn’t easy to do).

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma- sweet malts, caramel, hops, light aromatic fruits
Appearance- copper colored, nice, thick white head
Taste- like Nugger Nectar, only less harsh, more fluid taste
Palate- mouth-coating, slightly syrupy
Overall- Extremely close to Nugget Nectar yet more sessionable. Must be had fresh though. Mine was bottled in mid-September and tasted excellent.
