3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 8-28-2010 at JK O’Donnell’s in Fort Wayne, IN. This draft beer has a small tan head with a short retention, transparent orange body, no visible carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma consist of light caramel malt, citrus and pine hops. The taste is bitter, light caramel malt, citrus, pine hops, and has a semi-dry short finish. The palate is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is a hop heads delight as the hops are upfront in the aroma and in the flavor as well they should be for this beer style. This is a straight forward beer as far as noting the various aromas and flavors. It is worth trying if one likes hoppy tasting beers.

Floral hops, alcohol, somewhat of a lingering aftertaste. Decent brew, although I prefer the Dragonfly IPA.

On tap at the source. Darker orange pour. Hops on the more floral side of the spectrum. Quite a bunch if malt.

Copper, small tan head. Smells of pine resin, grapefruit, hints of bubblegum. Mostly bitter. Medium body, higher acidity, medium carbonation, longish finish. Fine, not awesome.

Great imperial IPA. This beer is well made with good hops, taste, and feel. Solid choice if available.

Draft: coppery orange color with a nice white head. Aroma of biscuits and grapefruit. Tastes like nice bitter grapefruit with a full mouthfeel. Wonderful beer sitting here sipping after work. Lovely end to the week.

Bottle at Jim and Brian’s house. Thanks! Poured into a tulip. Nice golden-orange color with haze. Decent white head and lacing. Strong hops floral scents with musty hops as well. Taste was citrus, floral and balanced caramel with the malts. Bitter finish. Medium body. Better than I expected.
