From notes.

A: Pours a clear blond colored beer with a foamy large head with a good retention.

S: The nose is malty, mainly caramel. Yeasts notes. Citruses also (lemon).

T: The taste is fruity, spicy with a malty sweetness. The finish is slightly bitter.

M: Light bodied with an ok carbonation. Refreshing.

O: Not truly an imperial IPA, but quite a decent refreshing brew.

This beer pours as a rich copper-amber color with a sudsy white head. The beer has a full-on hoppy aroma, with lots of Goldings aroma. Herbal hops, lots of British malt smells. Fresh. The taste is semi-sweet, with a little fruit character (peach and pear). The mouthfeel is smooth, with a little fullness. The bottle describes this as an Imperial IPA, which is clearly not the style, although the hops are forward and fresh. It's an engaging and drinkable brew.

3.85/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours cloudy amber with a rocky taupe head that leaves just a few trailers. Big resiny hop flower nose - pure Cascade. Apple cider malts with a bit of toast and caramel, then a battle between spicy and orangey hops. Lingering fruity sweetness. Fruit fade to pure bitterness and a hint of bubblegum as it warms. Prickly, medium, more burn than expected for 6%.

Interesting UK/US hybrid with lots of fresh hops forward, but too harsh in the end to be very drinkable.
