aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Very soft beer somewhat reminiscent of a clean mid-late 90s IIPA. Herbal and floral nose with just a soft hint of malt sweetness that is much drier on the palate. Clean and lingering finish. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - FEB 10, 2004
Medium gold color. Medium white foamy head. Aroma is floral and citrus. A light to medium bodied Imperial India Pale Ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are grapefruity, floral and citrusy. Nicely balanced, slightly toward the malt sweetness. Seems a little low in alcohol (7.5% ABV) for an imperial, but the flavor is there. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
