Catherine the Great was a decent beer. It poured a clear copper with thin white head that left some lace. The scent had hints of sweetness and a touch of bitterness. The taste was evenly balanced but sweet malt prevailed. The Mouthfeel was medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall it's ok.

Catherine the Great, the "Imperialistic IPA" - Not quite a double IPA but close enough for us to call it "Imperialistic". This is massively hopped with those special hops from the pacific northwest. Copper colored, medium bodied IPA with tangerine and orange peel notes and enough malt presence to balance out the hops.

A: The beer is very hazy yellowish amber in color and has some clumps of yeast visible floating near the bottom of the glass. It poured with an eighth of a finger high beige head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of bitter grapefruit are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is very bitter and has strong notes of grapefruit flavors. It reminds me a lot like drinking grapefruit juice.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: If you don't like the taste or bitterness of grapefruit juice, this is a beer that you probably won't enjoy. Otherwise it is nice and bitter and citrusy.
