Pours light copper with white head that goes away quickly. Aroma is clean piney hops with a bit of rich caramel malts in the background. Medium mouthfeel with light carbonation and bits of prickliness. Flavor has the piney hops from the aroma with an added bit of floral qualities. There is also some rich malt underlying to give balance. Due to the flavors there becomes a bit of a syrup aspecet the mouthfeel. I remember this being beer in the 750 ml bottles, but the 12 oz. bottle is still nice. A nice quality beer that is worth trying.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2006 Great beer. Super smooth and pleasantly bubbly, and great hops in the aroma. This is one of my favorite beers. Its hard to find an IIPA as well balanced and evenly rounded as this one (and easy to find).

A great IPA but I think it lacks some of the bite that the 60 min. is famous for. It has almost too smooth of a finish for an IPA. I must admit the regardless of my critiques above, this beer is still one of the top ten in my book.

12 oz. pours a rather clear amber with a medium off white head. decent lacing. Aroma is of pine and citrus, taste is of big bitter hops up front with a malty body and a smooth, piney bitter finish. In my opinion, this is the most well balanced imperial ipa ive come across.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2007 On draft at Issac Newtons. Pours amber with small compact off-white head. Aroma of pine hops, citrus, sweet malts. Flavor is exceptionally smooth, citrus, sweet up-front, carbonation with a mildly bitter finish, with an after taste of slight orange. Good healthy body, Great brew.

Bottle. With the immense hop presence, I was extremely surprised by the continual balance of sweet candy-like malt presence. It just doesnt seem like anything else should squeeze through, but a lot of malt presence is there. Wonderful aroma of flowery citrus. A little sticky, but also very dry. Good head, and gorgeous golden body, but I was dissapointed by the lack of lacing. A world-class beer which has earned my admiration.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2007 The hops are amazing, the aromatic hops are more impressive than the bittering hops. A really great effort. all the hopiness makes you forget it 9%.
