Beer of the gods. I must depend on memory since this is only available at the brewery as far as I know. The best beer I have every had. Very strong, fresh tasting, and good.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of Free State's top three or four beers. I was especially impressed by the aroma, usually not an area in which FS excels...malty, bready, cantaloupe, subtle...with just a hint of cinnamon as an anchor. Flavors were full and mouth-expanding, light caramel malts blended with pears and wheat. Just a touch of lemon cake rounded things out a bit. Rich yet smooth with a bit of a hop bite to offset the pervading creamy maltiness.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lightly fruity/citrusy aroma. Honey-colored ale, with a more than usual amount of effervescence, but an even, slight head. Initial flavor is of some piney, resiny hop flavors, mingling with a light citrusy taste and some Caramel malt sweetness. Great balance and mouthfeel...almost creamily smooth. The finish is a bit long and hoppy, but without any sort of hop bite...just lightly fades away. Mmmm...Imperial Pale Ale...
