4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
It seems I keep forgetting to rate these wider beers. I remember this beer as having a strong bitter hop taste to the point that the imbalance gave it a poor finish. Good but not great.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden orange on tap with fluffy off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of nice citrus and earthy notes from the hops, taste is a hop bomb with a hint of caramel malt back, finish is really bitter. Pretty solid, but nothing mind blowing.

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.
