I had this on cask at Engine House #9 and it is one of the best beers that I've ever had. The pint came with a gorgeous offwhite head and a cloudy orange color. I didn't pick up any strong powerful aromas, slightly floral, sweet and a touch of wood tones, but nothing overpowering to the nose. Wonderful hop flavors with a lingering bitterness at the end but exceptionally smooth and mellow. Creamy mouthfeel and smooth, smooth, smooth. Did I mention it was smooth? The cask conditioning really added a character to this beer that is hard to describe but the results are perfect. If I run into Imperial Pale Ale again on cask it will be hard to pass it up.

Draft at a Thai place in Seattle. Copper pour with small white head. A very nice floral aroma with a hint of citrus to go along. Decent bite, floral flavors, with some nice malt backbone to give it a solid body for a pale ale. Middle of the road, but always excited to try the west coast brews I have never heard of. I would drink it again if available, but would not go out of my way here.

Poured copper orange with a finger of bright white head. Aroma of caramel and some mild pine.
Moderate carbonation and a full, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Quite sweet with lots of caramel, honey, and bread. Just a bit of pine and citrus on the finish.
Interesting to have an imperial pale ale; definitely more malt-forward. Just a hint of booziness and not overly sweet, but one was plenty.
