on tap at the Brewery & Public House, Portland
Bright bronze with rings of snowy white foam.
Musty grapefruit rind nose - Citra? - with some Pledge.
Creacked wheat crackers then pink grapefruit, resin, and Cointreau hops.
Dried pineapple finish and sugared grapefruit linger.
Medium, chewy, some oil.
Big fruity hops - all the sweetest parts of citrus from Amarillo, Cascade and Citra. No burn, light enough, and wears its IBUs easily. But too sugary to quaff.
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Boathouse in Conshy.
Pours tangerine-orange with minimal head
Aroma not to prominent of fruity hops
Taste is citrusy hops and tangy. Not overbearing but subtle. Bitterness overtakes the citric qualities.
kind of light bodied with good carbonation.
My wife asked me how it was and the word that came to mind was ordinary. A good beer for sure but nothing that hasn't been done before.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter. Off white, thick, foamy head, beautiful lacing throughout tasting. Hazy golden orange mixed with a deep yellow honey...nice.
WOW...a big hit of sweet citrus, caramels and fresh baked bread with an apple butter spread on the nose.
First swallow and I'm overcome with molasses, juicy, creamy and sweet. The mouthfeel is nice, somewhat heavy but not overpowering, medium carbonation. Bready malt and hops play together with caramels and toffee creating a rich even middle. The finish is big...dry and bitter, orange peel and peppery...a warm alcohol sensation lingers with the bitterness.
I love this Imperial IPA! I enjoy my IPAs a little on the sweet side...with a caramel/molasses center...this is spot on. Bold flavors and it's ampt up alcohol, (9.3%) along with its 99IBUs makes this a great hop bomb with a nice warm finish.
The only downside that I see...at over 500 calories for one 22oz bomber...you've just eaten a meal...and in my case...breakfast...enjoy...again and again and again!
