Batch #13 March 2011 22oz bomber into large wine glass
A – A clear orange copper color with a 1 finger head that quickly recedes to a very thin layer while leaving nice lacing 4
S – Upon pour the large mango and grapefruit scent will hit your nose, syrupy sweet malts smooth out the charging hops, pine, and overly ripe fruit notes as well 4.5
T – Pine, alcohol and resiny hops with a mélange of caramel, earthy and herbal bitterness. Grapefruit/Orange zest finish. The alcohol kicks the drinkability down substantially, but isn’t overpowering. 4
M – Mild to moderate carbonation, not thick but the flavor body and flavor impart heaviness to this brew, resiny pine taste and mouth feel throughout. 3.5
O – A good DIPA but not at the top of my style list, and not at the $11 a bomber I paid. Worth a try for any hop-head, but it will be my last. 3.5

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.
