look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
The beer I poured was bottled Mar 2011 and was noted as batch no 13.
Poured into a pint glass. The color is a dark amber, really quite stunning with a lot of carbonation. I got a two finger, off white, and rocky head. This is a beautiful beer.
Smells sweet, like pineapple. I picked this aroma up as soon as the beer hit the glass.
I first taste the malty sweetness, then some orange citrus. Finishes with a little hoppy bitterness. At 10.54% I can also taste the alcohol on this one. This is a very tasty yet very strong bold beer.
Medium bodied, fairly boozy yet in a pleasant complimentary way. This leaves a malty sweet after taste but it's not over powering and quite enjoyable.
As soon as I poured this I got hit with the sweet smell of pineapple and was also very pleased with how this beer looked. I will buy more of this, just so long as I can find it.

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.
