Keg at Spacebar, 4/6/15. Clear golden, thin fizzy off-white head, poor retention. Aroma of floral and mild piney hops. The taste is resin, melon hops, pale malt. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness.

Hazy to cloudy brown color, small white head which disappeared quickly. Biscuity aroma, a bit boozy. Taste is pleasantly hoppy, medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Boozy yet refreshing.

Surprised by the "low" ratings on this one. Glad I finally tried it. Pour is clear, golden-amber with thin, clingy top. Aroma is other-worldly, one of the most fantastic smells I’ve encountered - bready malt with wild berry and citrus. I spent most of my time with this thing with my nose in the glass! Flavor has malty start, a nice bitter bite in the middle, finishing pretty clean with a nice semi-sweet linger. Good stuff, this!

12 oz bottle. Tasted on 4/29/15. Bottle from The Cellar Norman, OK. A pretty decent double IPA. Nice bitterness to it with some e grapefruit & slight darkness. Not too bad.

Draft at the Green Growler. Average looking pour. The rich, sweet aroma is the star of this show. Unfortunately the flavor lags behind - dry with dashes of grapefruit, pine, & yeast. A solid brew but not a first rate imperial.

One glance at the bottle and....I am not sure really, it looks classy and greasy all at the same time. What lurks inside is a fantastic brewski, why it isn’t rated higher for style I am not sure? Is the SRM off? Is it too sweet? Whatever, style bitchiness aside this is a pretty fuckin’ tight ale. Barreling off of a dark copper body come audacious aromas of peach, tangerine, sweet grapefruit, pineapple, honey and some wee vinous hints. T’is a big, bold fruity IPA , headed up by off-white foam. It is pretty much on the sweet side but enough grapefruit zing saunters in late, managing to hold this tropical train on it’s tracks. With a full mouthfeel and a fine lingering lusciousness consisting of sweet and citrus fruit, this booze-hiding big’gun is very much a tasty pour.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at O’Hara Zagreb, with Ribafish (huge thanks Marin & co!). Poured a darker amber body with an off white head that went away relatively fast. Sweet earthy, more malty than hoppy aroma, ok. Though I feared that would mean a sugar bomb, the taste disproved me quickly - lemongras-forward hop, on dry maltiness - slightly figgy, caramelly, which is overrun by a good bitterness. Quite tasty beer, I like it!
