Derek881 (1269) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Poured this beer from the bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a very cloudy amber-orange color with some slight sediment and a good-sized foamy white head with solid retention, great cling, and good lacing. Its aroma featured some spice, citrus, pine, and floral hops, and touches of barley malt beneath. The taste was grainy and bitter with some lighter citrus, and a modest sour grain effect too. It was a lively, fizzy beer with good carbonation, and was very dry, but with a thick, filling mouthfeel.

Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation and soft alcohol bite at the finish. Solid brew.

Large off white head with fair retention and lace.Slightly hazy copper/amber hued ale. Nose of grainy malts and some co2. medium bodied, somewhat astringent and a bit carbonated, prickly. Dry and somewhat astringent malt flavors. cant find much for hops, maybe slight grassy notes, metallic(not the good kind either!). Dry, astringent finish. Thats enough of that shit. Must of gotten a bad bottle by the appearences of the other ratings. Hooof!

jgb9348 (6050) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2012
Super hazy copper coloured body with a nice orange glow and a thin one centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of honey, grapefruit, earthy malt, alcohol and a bit of basementy must. Medium to Full-bodied; Deep strong earthy and herbal hop note with a bright grapefruity and lemony flavour with a lot of alcohol and a long-lasting flavour. Aftertaste shows some herbal notes, but mostly a bright and earthy hop flavour with a good malt balance and some alcohol tucked in. Overall, a nice Imperial IPA on the lighter side, but still showing a ton of hops, a lot of alcohol and a more herbal and citrus fruit flavour - plus the small format bottle helps. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Chevy Chase Wine & Spirits in Washington, DC on 28-October-2011 for US$2.99 sampled at home in Washington on 17-April-2012.
