4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle @ Jungle Jims / Cincinnati OH --- Aroma of malt and tropical fruit. Nearly clear bright medium amber, smooth 1" white head, sheets of lace. Taste is Caramel malt that moves quickly to a swallow that has fizz and neutral hops. The hops knock the malt out of the way, but the malt recovers, returning for an exceptionally balanced finish. A terrific IPA, light in the stomach, complex, and balanced.

This is a rather solid IPA. Well balanced bitter to sweet ratio. Not over the top on the hops.

Bottle. Pours golden with a giant white head. Smells of grapefruit, flowers. Taste is grapefruit peel, orange, bread, light formal notes, pine. Was surprised when I saw this was an imperial. Hides the alcohol well.

bottled - thanks Rob - see-through golden color. Super hoppy aroma and flavor. Good, but I’m not a huge fan of the double IPA’s and Imperial IPA’s.

It pours a golden color with tinges of orange and a large, off white head. There is a huge aroma of grapefruit with floral and pine elements. It has flavors of grapefruit, citrus, floral, and pine, It is on the lite side of moderate for the fell and the bittering effect on the palate lasts a long time.
