3.33/5 rDev -8.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Poured a beautiful amber color with a thick off-white yellow tinted head. The head had wonderful retention but eventually faded to give a great deal of lacing.
Smell – A nice sweet caramel and biscuit aroma are mixed with a stronger pine smell. A grapefruit and lemongrass aroma are also present mixing with the others nicely.
Taste – The taste starts out biscuit and bready, with a lighter caramel flavor. These are mixed with a pine and citrus flavor. The pine grows stronger toward the middle of the taste where a lighter alcohol flavor comes onto the scene. Given more time the alcohol flavor gets stronger and when it mixes with more bitter citrus and some earthy hop flavors a bitter and boozy flavor is left on the tongue taking away from the overall taste.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is nice and creamy with a carbonation level that is medium. Both are wonderful for an Imperial IPA and really allow one to experience both the malt as well as the hop.
Overall – This would have been a wonderful brew as it had a fantastic look, smell, and mouthfeel, unfortunately its taste was quite off; There was far too much booziness and it was a bit on the bitter side.

Color- light red amber. Medium head.
Aroma- crisp winter night in the pine forest.
Taste- starts silky with a balance of butter and hops with grapefruit jolly rancher candy notes finishing with a Dogfishhead butteryness.
Poured from 355 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted March 2013.
