Many thanks to Px2Grafx for this bottle.

12oz brown bottle, I really dig the graphics on this one. 7.5 abv, and imperial amber, eh? Can’t say I’ve ever had one. If there’s a date or bottle code on here, I don’t see it. Quite frankly I’m a bit too eager to drink the bastard to look very hard, though.

Nose is standard amber, with a noticeable hop kick. Sweet overtones to boot.

Pouring in to my trusty Arrogant Bastard pint glass. Not as opaque as I had expect, looks like a decent IPA. A very clear burnt orange with just a hint of amber. ¼” inch head faded quickly (I did have to fish a speck of something out of the head with my finger, which I imagine aided in its speedy demise). Not a whole lot of bubbles coming from the bottom of the glass, but they’re definitely there. Not a whole lot of lacing action, but there is some.

Pretty tasty. Very IPA inspired, in my humble opinion. The amber is almost an afterthought. Very well balanced, not as complex as I had anticipated. A slight caramelly flavor rushes into a burst of very piney hops, with just a slight hint of fruity sweetness at the end. This all passes very quickly, with the hop taste being the predominate flavor. It’s quite tasty, just not very complex. This leaves it very drinkable, however, and the mouth feel is very passive, but pleasing.

Poured into a pint mug, this is a reddish amber beer with a smallish but persistent head. Good malt aroma with a pleasant underlay of grassy, piney hops. Flavor is really good, with plenty of malt backed against high bitterness that tastes of citrus, fresh-mown grass hoppiness. Nice big body, but not overly heavy. Light esters finish out the dry end.

Bought this one in Baltimore on advice of my son. Pours a hazy amber with white head. Aroma is more malty than expected. Biscuity, sweet and some pine notes. Taste is more bitter than the nose, moderate to heavily bitter. The caramel sweetness and biscuits make a nice backbone to the pine, resin hoppy bitterness. Crisp mouthfeel. A solid effort for a hoppy IPA.
