Bottled. As Imperial IPA. Small sample. The aroma has peach, resin, bread. Clear, copper coloured beer with a medium sized white head. The taste is moderate bitter with resiny sweetness, has tropical fruit, bread, citrus, pine. Medium-full bodied beer with average carbonation. Pleasant.

Tight meringue like foamy 2 finger+ head atop an only slightly hop-hazed honey orange brew... surprising spotty sticky lacing.

Aroma is will rounded citric hops.. but without being too overdone... I could be getting a little caramel.. but my nose could be playing tricks on me.

Flavor mirrors the aroma.. but with a background fruity hoppiness.. Amarillos? Big bitterness is balanced nicely with a light toasty malty body.. could use a little bit more pronounced hop flavor with maybe dialing down the bitterness a notch.. Bitterness cuts down on the drinkabilty for me.. . good viscosity and just enough carbonation.

Little hazy orange beer, big creamy yellowish irregular head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very fruity, pineapple, some strawberry, jam, honey, sweet, malty, some caramel. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet malty start, some honey, bitter, pineapple in a can with syrup. Aftertaste: nice bitterness, sweet malts, some caramel, bit sugary, exotic fruits still, some pineapple, passion fruits, bit resinous. Nice beer!
