4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance was orange copper gold with creamy lasting whitish 2 finger head, lacing throughout glass. Aromas are sweet caramel honey malts with soft pine, herbs and spice and citrus fruits. Taste was a thing of beauty with sweet malty backbone then peach, berry, cherry, orange spicey hops, but not overpowering. Palate was silky creamy CO2 with balanced body, then long fruity sweet slightly dryish finish. Wonderful.

Enjoyed the wide variety of fruit, citrus, melon and berry along with the significant bitterness and the warmth. Maybe a little too sweet, but certainly hard to balance everything. Would drink again.

From tap at BrewCo, Manhatten Beach, 8.6. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white and creamy head. Aroma is solid hoppy, peachy and grapefruity. Smooth, mellow and lingering fruity into the finish.

Pours a cloudy orange color with a small white foamy head. It has a hoppy,wild smell. The taste is hoppy with a slightly malty flavor and a little citrus. Excellent blend of hops, malt and citrus flavor.

Citrus and earthy aroma with an orangish/amber hue. Citrus and grapefruit flavor and some earthy undertones to finish with the slight bitterness. More malty than bitter.

Golden brown pour, fruity aroma. Deliciously fruity and sweet...and yes, I get the berries. Bitter pink grapefruit/orange citrus bite. Well balanced and assertive. Good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a perfectly clear golden orange, with a big fluffy bright white head. Great lacing and smells of citrus, grapefruit, and earthiness. Taste is bitter from the start to finish, sweet malt in the middle, and a touch of alcohol on the finish. Sticky mouthfeel and high carbonation. Not bad.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap and listed as Nelson’s imperial IPA., so first I thought this was from england. Big hoppy aroma with a combined nose of BO. Looks like pale lager. Big terrible green grapefruit rind impact on the taste buds. Nice lacing on myglass. Over the top and down the sides is the impact this has on my mouth. Lots of what seems to be fresh bitter citrus in ther. Some mild co2.
