antzman (325) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2007
Draft. Pours a medium copper with a full white head. Excellent lacing. The aroma is a blend of piney, citrusy hops, and some malts. I initially was expecting a pure hop bomb, but that was not was I got. The initial taste is all hops. Very floral and citrusy, but then the malts kicked in to balance the beer out. Damn well put together beer. Based on opinions at a tasting, this should be their next bottled offering.

Pours dark amber with thin head. Smells hoppy. Aroma is chocolate and has a hint of licorice. Aftertaste lingers due to the hoppiness.

Pours a heavy orange with a frothy head. Taste is bitter as would be expected. Some citrus notes.

From a 22oz bottle obtained in a trade from CarlyRaes. My first Imperial Pale Ale, nice title. The pour was a semi-dark amber color with a nice foam head. I got next to nothing in the aroma department. The taste was pronounced malts but I might be biased based on my recent trend of DIPA’s the last month. I didn’t find much on the finish and was hoping for a little more hop goodness. Didn’t know this was 8.5% and this could definitely creep up on you rather quickly.

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark orangewith this white head. Aroma is sweet malts, bread, and a small amount of hops. Palate is a little flat. Taste is a bit bitter and sweet at the same time. Nothing special, but refreshing.

decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 6, 2011
Orange pour with white head and lace. Resiny hops and light caramel. Resiny, perfumey, sweet maltiness, with a medium hard bitter. Medium bodied but just a tad too foamy for me. Best beer of the stop.

On tap at browning’s. Pours deep amber. Aroma of citrus hops, caramel malts, and some spice or something. Flavor has some weird light taste. A decent pale ale.

ContemplateBeer (2097) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Aroma of grapefruit hops, caramel and confectionery sugar. Appearance is reddish brown with tan head. Flavor matches the nose. Palate is lively and creamy. I wasn’t blown away, but I do see why this is their most popular beer.

kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Clear apricot color. Good holding head. Light resinous nose. Mild sweet hoppy flavor. Small bite. Bitter finish.

Frothmeister (841) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2010
650ml bottle. Pours a cloudy dark amber, (like unfiltered apple cider) with an off-white head. Aromas are faint. Resin. Toffee. Citrus. Flavours of sweet toffee, raisin, dried fruit, bread crust, finishing with some lovely citrus hops. A bit like a hopped up Belgian ale.
