3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into an American pint glass, color is orange-amber and slightly hazy, produces a clear white head that is thin but maintains itself well, plenty of lacing to go with it. The aroma is basic, piney with some malt and a little citrus. The taste is much the same, although the citrus is stronger and there are some hints of melon on the back end, it’s also sweet but not overbearingly so. Medium-bodied and thinner than some of it’s Imperial IPA counterparts, but it has the alcohol content to match them and it warms you all the way down. Overall, a good beer with a great name and a flavor that will linger on your palate.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
I was hoping for a nice smooth mellow ale but what I got was imperial double IPA, nearing strong ale attributes. Yes, big rototiller cannot be appreciated while it mows down every cell across your tongue and down yer throat. Rude nasty strong American ale BS, wew. Terribly on style and over the top. Warm on the way down. Getting dizzy near the end of the bottle, wew. Soapy viscous appearing mouth coating thing. There, you have; a big overly hoppy beer by all measures. Good job yards on this giant beer. Finish? Won’t be able to taste anything for a while.

Malty aroma similar to 90 minute. Hops also come out. It pours a clear but deep reddish amber. Taste is balanced yet a tad more to the spicy hoppy side. Instead of the sweet roundness of malt, there is a slightly sour lemon presence which makes this interesting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a deep amber color with a decent off white head. Nice head retention. The nose starts with a dash of pine but quickly goes heavy with citrus. The flavor has decent malt and hop balance. There is a toasted malt, slightly buttery flavor. Plenty of malt bitterness and lots of citrus notes from the hop side. The alcohol is a bit obvious. Medium to full bodied with an oily feel to it that clings to the tongue. I wouldn’t mind a cleaner finish. I feel like the flavors don’t quite mesh together. Okay, but not one I would return to.

Bottle. Pours a orangish amber with little head and aromas that are odd. Chocolate? Flavor is kind of weak and doesn’t really match my idea of the style. Like a washed out IPA with herbal and fruity hops.

Orangey copper color with a whitish head. Hints of citrus zest, pepper, leading to a hoppy but not overly bitter finish. Well balanced, punchy, hints of lemongrass. Quite a nice IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mari’s. Pours clear copper with a small white head that dissipates quickly to a slight film. There is plenty of carbonation in the glass. The aroma has a good citrus punch with enough astringency to let you know this is well hopped. The taste is very citrus forward but has a nice bitterness on the finish. This well exceeded expectations!
