4.63/5  rDev +21.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Lotsa winter sun shining through this bottle, seems a clear brew, but poured into a pint glass, just a slight haze shows in copper, SRM 14 on my Beer Color Chart here. Very teeny tiny bubbles rise all the time, more discrete than good champagne. Excellent head shrinks slowly, leaving sticky lace on glass and persistent foam on surface. Smells yeasty to me, slightly greenish hop blossomy, don't smell malt. Tastes just great, excellent simple solid-block bitter with hints of yeast and caramel, only a beer pretzel and goat cheese nearby could possibly improve this delish mouth-watering happy/hoppiness. I also enjoy IPAs with more various multi-noted hop flavor, but this huge juicy simple unified hop taste is great, too. Mouthfeel could be too carbonated if you don't pour big head, so let it splash high from your bottle pour. Long lingering oily hop aftertaste just what hopheads live for. I'll admit I'm biased toward local beers, grew up in Syracuse, live in Ithaca now so this counts as locavore politically correct ale for me and I try to keep ImPaled Ale in fridge at all times. Only 2 left? Time for another fresh 6-pack!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: slight haze; burnt orange in color; with a conservative pour, got a 1 finger pillowy head that receded to a film; really nice lacing;

S: caramel malt and some soapiness;

T: follows the nose; a small amount of hops detected in the background; a touch of citrus in the mid-palate; almost no bitterness;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; well balanced;

O: matches the style very well;
