4.38/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Appearance is a burnt orange-to-copper color with a half finger of head that dissipated quickly. The nose is distinctly hoppy in a way that makes my mouth water for the first sip.
The taste is certainly NOT a disappointment - great combination of malt and hops. The hop bitterness gets bigger near the finish, but a touch of malty sweetness comes back to merge with the increased bitterness.
The alcohol is well-hidden here. All-in-all, a tasty and complex offering!
Update: Sampled the 2013 batch and found the alcohol to be much more pronounced than the 2012 batch. Still a tasty offering, but I enjoyed the 2013 version less as a result of this variance.
Serving type: on-tap

Tipple's Brews - Gainesville - Release #18, 2014 - 1 pint, 6 oz. Bottle
A - pours a nice orange with two fingers of white bubble head that somewhat quickly dissipated. Carb levels coming up are standard. Nice clarity.
S - Nice citrus notes on nose, has nice earthy qualities to it. Hop presence is forward here. Mildly boozy here.
T - Start is nice and warming. Has a boozy quality there (expected for 10+%). Extremely smooth for being an Imperial. Has a very balance hop and malt profile. The end you get that booziness for sure, but between it is a nice caramel, sweet taste.
M - Medium bodied, quite drinkable. Carbonation is perfect. Smooth, very smooth, no real bite to speak of like you get w/ alot of Imperials.
O - Worth a try. Very nice qualities to it. At the price point, it may not be all that, but for what it is it does not dissapoint.
