2 Pints on tap. Hazy orange-copper with a half inch of foam. Mild aroma of caramel, citrus and toast. Tastes of pecan, toffee, toasted wheat bread, with a delicate finish of pine resin, citrus and cocoa. Light-medium body is well balanced and has a smooth medium carbonation. walleye (1099) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2012

Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Grain and citrus aroma and taste with a malty finish. Maltajo (329) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 8, 2009
3 oz Sample at the brew works downtown. For an Imperial pale Ale this drops offs way short. 5.5 ABV? Does that even count as an Impeiral? Not in my book. But here it goes. Very dry light golden pour. Almost sour wheaty with a strong barley palet. I can pass on this one also. Big river has yet to impress. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Thin white head, pale golden body. Aroma is pale malt sweetness and little else. Taste is grassy, caramel, strange.

Cloudy orange, foamy, dense head. Cirtusy, grapefruit-like aroma. Very crisp palate at first, then some piney, resiny notes. Crisp finish. Nice session beer. arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Malty with a caramel flavor and not much hops to speak about. Light orange color, seems english style and in my opinion it could definitely stand to have the hops kicked up about four notches. Not a bad beer just needs some hops dammit. I’m not sure why they call it imperial as it is nothing of the sort.

on tap-pours a dissipating off white head and copper color. Aroma is mild grain, some herbal hops. Taste is grain/medium malt-caramel, secondary spice hops. Borders on a Vienna Lager with some Tettnang/Hallertau. OK now I had the Vienna Lager which has a bit more malt and a bit less hops. jzzbassman (1634) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Draft at Downtown Chattanooga location
The winner of the 8 different ones I had, this was the one I could have drank all day. Nice citrus aroma, and the flavor was almost perfectly balanced between a great malt character and a crisp hoppiness. Nothing ground breaking but this particular pint was nice. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 8, 2008
On tap at Hamilton Place. The body was deep gold with an off white head. The aroma was earthy and light with some grapefruit. There was also some fresh cut wood. The taste was grapefruit with some bread crust. Decent.
