Not expecting much, as this brewery has been mostly meh.

Pours a smaller fizzy head covering, fades at a med pace with surprisingly nice lacing, little sediment, hazy, reddish orange color.

Nose is herbal hops, earthy and a bit leafy grassy, mild herbal tea and slight vegetal, some earthy bitter, more U.K. style bitter. mild sweet malt base.

Taste starts with sweet malts, a little candy syrup and some caramel, mild toasty flavors too. Then hops, quite bitter, earthy herbal hops, spicy, chewy hops, some vegetal herbal hop characters with a little leafy grassy note, but so chewy spicy bitter hops. In the middle is a quick flash of honey, straight up strong honey flavor, then quickly back into the chewy hops. Also a mild apple like fruity flavor on the back end. Finish is long bitterness, a bit astringent as it's so bitter, more herbal earthy spicy hops, that's about it.

Mouth is med bod, plenty of carb.

Overall meh, more like the old style IPAs from actual Imperial U.K. with the herbal vegetal grassy earthy hops, very bitter, some malt backbone that even that can't balance it, nothing too bad but it also doesn't really have anything going for it.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #67 (August 2012):

LOOK: Quick frothing, clear pale amber

SMELL: Grapefruit rind, passion fruit, pineapple skin, green peppercorn, herbal, estery, crackers

TASTE: Smooth, crisp snap, bitter, grapefruit pith, heather, peppery, lime leaves, dry toast, yeast, slightly warming alcohol, very bitter finish

Wow, talk about being caught off-guard. Yeah, we saw the 82 IBU’s on the label, but we run into that on nearly a daily basis. 4000’er rakes down our taste buds with bitterness and a pretty wild flavor profile. Even the raw nature of this beer does not distract our palate from the massive hop presence here.
