A: Golden pale ale. White half finger head. Hardly any carbonation.

S: Citrus, pine, orange. Very underpowered.

T: Fruity, bitter, nice and hoppy.

M: Thin.

O: Slightly boozy but I'm just underwhelmed. Was hoping for a better flavor and especially aroma.

3.35/5  rDev -18.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Golden yellow with one finger of head that fades slowly to a thin cap with a curtain of lace.

Aroma: A piney, hoppy bouquet with hints of melon, grapefruit and toffy.

Taste: A strong malt backbone from start to finish with a creamy body, topped by some potent bitterness that really get going towards the middle and ends up fairly harsh by the finish, which is lingering and a bit unpleasant. After a few sips the aroma gets a bit katty.

The Rest: A decent beer lacking a bit in the balance department. There's a great, malty base in there that unfortunate gets overwhelmed by some over the top bitterness. I realize that this is an imperial, but the bitterness is just a bit to ragged and harsh for me to really enjoy this beer.

A-Bright yellow with decent head that dissipates rather quickly

S-I smelled the hops as soon as I uncapped this guy, I love the citrus and grassy smell

T/M-Yum, thats pretty much it. Nice malt/sweetish beginning and then you get a visit from the hop fairy who sprinkles wonderful hop flavors on your tongue. delicious

O-I really enjoyed this guy, recommend
