Has nice tropical fruit note of melon or mango which gives the air of sweetness without actually being sweet. Unfortunately I notice a catty note that makes further consumption a bit difficult. A good enough DIPA, easy to drink for 9%, but yeah the cat piss is hard to ditch entirely.

Good mix of hops and malt here. Booze well tempered. Comes together very well. Pours golden blonde with good head and lacing. Bittersweet finish. Hint of florals. Tap at Birch and Barley.

Pours light for an IPA, and as an imperial I would call it an albino. The sweet grassy and floral aroma was enticing, but I found the aroma didn't translate to any substantial flavor and it felt bitter and medicinal on the tongue.

One of the smoothest ipa’s much less an imperial. A little to flowery or else it would be perfect.

Finhead (1260) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Slightly hazy, yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has nice pineapple notes. It has a medium body with oily texture and good carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with nice citrus hop flavor.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head. Aroma is of perfume hops, bready malt and peaches. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is long, dry, with some alcohol. Delicious brew.

OmegaX (1301) - Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Bottle served into snifter. Aroma mainly consists of citrus with a sharp tropical bite. Onions? Something weird in there but not off putting. Flavor is similar with bold citrusy hops. Malt is an afterthought. Overall not bad but it had something strange in there for me.

backdaft (244) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is fruity/floral hops and pilsner malt. Taste is fruity; with pineappple, orange, mango, & peach. Nice grassy bitterness from the hop profile. Pretty smooth for 9 ABV. Medium carbonation with a slick, oily mouthfeel and a slightly sweet finish. Very Nice!
