look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottled on 12/19/12. poured into a tulip.

Appearance - crystal clear golden straw, two finger head that fades into a lasting white cap. Nice.

Smell - Hops have a musty, moldy character with a moderate touch of pine. Maybe a sweet bready malt is there beneath the hops. Aroma is not in your face, but it's solid.

Taste - Piney hops definitely pervade the mouth with lots of bitterness, but it's not overdone or unbalanced. Minimal malt sweetness here.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium with prickly carbonation on the tongue. Bitterness is ever present in this brew.

Overall - Not my favorite style, but this is a solid beer though nothing extraordinary. I prefer more complex hop flavors with less bitterness and more sweetness, so this one didn't deliver in that sense. Still fairly enjoyable and not offensively bitter like some IPAs I've had.

Appearance has 1 or 2 fingers of whit e head sitting on a semi-clear orange/yellow beer. Head retention is fair with an attractive lacing.

Aromas are mainly of citrus hops and tropical fruits, with some caramel and bready malts included in a lesser degree.

The first taste brings a heavy hop bitterness to the table. Flavors are mainly hop resins and other spices. A bit of fruity sweetness is on the back end.

Thick bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. The finish is dry and hoppy.

Overall a really nice IPA here -- I like the naming on the label that this is an Imperial Pale Ale -- seems like a better name these days than an India Pale Ale. I would have liked a little more balance from the malts, but I can't complain.

Thanks to baybum for the try!

Appearance - pours a beautiful yellow-orange with a nice soft head, leaving some nice lacing on the glass after just a couple sips. This is a nice, clear, filtered IPA.

Smell - citrus, grapefruit, the promise of a sweet peachy ipa; not over the top. Just right

Taste - WOW. This is one of the best IPA's I have had in a very long time. It is near perfect. Balanced, a little battle between bitter and sweet - has a real east coast feel to me. Doesn't hit you over the head with hops. Troegs nailed this one.

Mouthfeel - Looks thinner than it tastes; you feel it right away on the tip of your tongue, although it is silent in between and then bang - hits you with the bitterness at the end.

Overall - this is quickly becoming one of my favorite beers. Right up there with Dogfish 75 minute IPA. You need to get this, now.
