4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass from Julio’s Liquors. Aroma is pineapple/tropical fruits and citrus, faint pine/spruce and corn chip. Appearance is slightly hazy greenish yellow with fluffy white head with decent retention, beautiful sparkle and nice sudsy lacing. Taste is moderately sweet pineapple/tropical fruits dominating with late mild bitterness. Palate is medium bodied with sticky texture, lively carbonation and mix of sweet and bitter finish. Overall, superior complexity of aroma and appearance with above average taste and palate.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2016 Clear pale golden pour, frothy head and good lacing. Strong aroma of grain / pilsner malt. Intensely grainy and sweet. Strong fruity presence...pineapple, tropical fruits, melons. This is my favorite flavor profile for an IPA. I like melon notes.

Flarra. Rätt Klar ljus färg. Doftar Apelsin å nysågad enplanka. Smakar fan apelsin rejält ockdå sen kommer tydlig smak av pilsner och mjöl. Mycket mjöl i eftersmaken ??. Ja färsk flaska men här ingen höjdar Dipa.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, light golden yellow, with full, thick, lasting head. Aroma marked by hops, some citrus, a certain grassiness. Doesn’t really smell like an IPA--more like a pilsner. Flavor is very fruity. Lots of tropical flavors and a distinct sharp finish, again not like the usual IPA. Interesting beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz single bottle from the Craft Beer Cellar - Fort Collins. Enjoy By: 07 MAY 2016, so this is probably almost 4 months old, assuming 6 months for enjoyment. Clear golden appearance with a small, fluffy white head that lingers and laces up the glass. Aroma of juicy hops, tropical fruits, zesty citrus and light must with a hint of onion/garlic. Similar flavor, sharp and resinous with a slight hint of alcohol. Light sweetness and medium to heavy bitterness that lasts all the way through to the finish. Medium plus body with a light dry feel. This is still drinking pretty well, but I’d like to try a freshie.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a very good imperial IPA. It pours bright yellow with a good bit of carbonation and a lot of foam that leaves a stubborn lace. The aroma is pine and citrus hops and lemon. The flavor is bright, juicy, and crisp. A little bit of the 9% ABV comes through on the exhale. Nice.
