Bottle at Chriso tasting (from Belmont Station - Portland) 18/11/12. Lightly hazed pale golden with a thin white head that dissipates to the edge. Nose comprises light pine, touch of piss, grapefruit, bitter orange, hops. Tastes of pine, malts, bitter tropical fruits, grapefruit, hops. Medium bodied with soft fine carbonation, bitter finish. Decent!

Bottle at Chriso tasting, London. Thanks Colin! Pours clear, yellow-gold with a frothy, white foam head. Ripe citrus nose, some grapefruit and melon. Medium sweet flavor with light, dry citrus rind, mild spice. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately piney to finish, lightly warming, with pale malts, mellow bread, a bit more citrus fruits. Good.

Pours a sunny gold with not much white head. Juicy aroma of oranges, grapefruit, lime. This is my kind of double - lots of tropical fruits, citrus, malt balance and a great hop profile. The alcohol is slightly noticeable on the finish along with a citrusy hop bite.

Light, cloudy orange appearance. Head hangs around with a fair amount of lace. Aroma is strong. Honey, hops, and sugar. Mouth is pretty light. Taste is very bitter but has a strange wheat like finish. This beer is close to being super tasty, but it could use a few tweaks.

Tap. Golden with white foamy head. Smells like citrus, pepper, and rubber..Flavor follows. Tea like.

Delicious. This one works really well. The nose is floral hops, grassy resins, slight malt at the back end. Well balanced hops take over but its awesome, they got the recipe just right

raphael (1288) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Sometimes a beer just hits you right. floral crush of hops, some citrus, some resin, full spectrum, with some peach-honey on the edge, and the beer this comes out of is lighter than I’d expect, yellow beginning to orange. thin white head. light and smooth in the mouth but definite. an unsweet malt heaviness behind the flavor, hops more of the resin side, sharp hop edge but well-balanced.definite warming. balanced finish.

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 28, 2012
Bottle. Amber with fair head. Aroma is hop and malt and not extreme. Flavour has noticeable ABV level, strong hops and good malt base. Not spectacular enough to make me think Imperial is a good thing. I am trending back to big hops, balanced malt and session able ABV levels.
