3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very tough beer. One of the breweries highest in alcohol. The atypical in your face Pacific North-West IPA.

Not bad. A bit citrus but not too much. Had this in Seattle with John and Mark. Floral.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Nice IPA. I actually prefer Worthy’s normal IPA over this, but this one is still good. Tangerine and floral. Pretty good!

22oz bottle picked up in Boise
Pours hazy orange with a small off-white head, some lacing. Aroma is fruity, caramel, dusty and resin. Taste of grapefruit, malts and pine resin
A decent IIPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle poured and split. Pours a hazy light orange color with a huge foam head. Soft bready malt aroma. Flavor matches, and is fairly light. Doesn’t really taste imperial to me. Hops mostly in the finish. Lighter than expected, but a good beer overall. Enjoyed this.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Clear paler orange, fading thin white foam. Foresty fruity aroma, orange zest. Piney fruity taste, soapy, oily and floral, mild pale c-malt, grapefruit, some spice, lean and dry, a bit harsh. Soft carbonation, medium bodied, well hopped. An unworthy atypical PNW IIPA. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Imazato. Orange-golden color with lace. Nose of orange, grapefruit, biscuirts. A bit syrupy, but nice citrus flavor, solid bitterness and good, crisp carbonation. A likeable big IPA.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Sugaya. Big fruity nose, peach and citrus, large caramel, and some grass. Orange/amber color, 2-cm head, and some reluctant, sticky lace. Big malty initial, piney hops, doesn’t really go to balance. Final moves to an overripe date note. Medium-heavy body. Pretty good, overall. Doesn’t have the aggressive rush of malt or hops of many imperial IPAs. A really good imperial should knock your hat off with the first sip; this one merely gives you a nasty glance, and then walks on by...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle in Seattle. Darker clear orange, small foam. Mild dense hop aroma, I imagine this isn’t as fresh as we’d like it. Smooth sweet body, apple fruitiness. Some bittering.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange with thin white head. Aroma of pineapple and guava and taste is the same, but taken down a notch by some English character. $4/22oz
