3.88/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

22oz bottle poured into a large mug. 159 G 0020 2013 and JAN 09 13 16:36:59 are both printed along the bottom edge of the bottle. Not sure, but I would guess it was bottled on January 9th 2013 (more than a year ago), with a best by of 150 days after that (more than half a year ago). So...take this review for what it's worth (which is very little, even under the best conditions).

It's a pretty beer. Big creamy looking head, beautiful rosy/amber color, lots and lots of carbonation. Clear. No sediment or haze at all, despite an ungentle and thorough pour. Smell is amber/red more than Imperial (or India, whatever they think the I stands for). Fruity, bready, slightly yeasty, little in the way of hops except a moderate grassy aroma. Smells good, but not phenomenal.

Taste allows more of the hops through. There's a little citrus rind bitterness up front, and some piney bitterness as it finishes off. Still lots of fruitiness, some of the bread. Tastier than I was expecting.

Mouthfeel is pretty dry. Not sticky or thick. Overall, this is a good beer.

3.35/5  rDev -13.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, pineapple, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet malt, citrus zest, and pineapple flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but the smell is better on this one in my opinion.
