On draft. Served in a pint glass. Pours a clear medium yellow, slightly copper hued body, one finger white head, fair retention, not much lacing. Smell is fairly malt-forward, with a crisp barley and malt sweetness, caramel and a light lemon and zest; maybe a little resin. Not too riveting, toasted grains are pretty strong on the nose and on the palate, where there is a slight bit of caramel and lemon to go along with the grains. Not particularly interesting, mildly bitter without too much nuance to the medium body that it comes with. Fairly decent carbonation. Compared to 5 years ago when I first had this, I think this IPA has been left behind by most of the newer ones that have come out even around town.

Imperial IPA pours a darker copper color with a big lacing head. Maltier aroma, with hints of hops. Taste was light, and balanced. Some noticeable hop but sweet malts come through. A bit watery and flat. Overall, not bad, but nothing special.
