I was expecting a NW hop explosion from this, instead, I got a serious introduction to the malt backbone. Not sorry I bought this, but not quite what I expected. In any case, if you like malt, this one’s for you.

A well made, nicely balanced beer. Because of the balance, the hopheads rate it far lower than it should be, but I pay no attention to them anyhow.

No real nose on this one, but tastes great. This is an IpA? Tastes more like a hoppy Amber. Nice lingering sweetness to it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light bronze, touch of haze. Thin head. Light rambutan aromas and a subtle toasty crystal chewiness. Quite sweet, smooth but very caramel, and a dash of toffee.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A hoppy flavor with sort of a sea salt after taste. Strong aroma but lite on mouth feel. Beware 8.4% alcohol.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 16 oz can into a tumbler on 11.13.14.
A: Citrusy. It smells a lot like Oskar Blues Deviant Dale’s. Tropical fruit with a big brown sugar malt base.
A: 2 finger head. See through red/amber body.
T: Pineapple and brown sugar dominate. Pine is subtle and on the back end.
O: It really does smell and taste a lot like Deviant Dale’s, but it’s a bit rougher around the edges. Setting that aside, it’s not in the West Coast style because it has a big malt presence. This does have a nice bittersweet piney sting on the back end.

16 Oz can pour. Pours a copper color. Bitter hops and caramel malt flavors, and a little boozy. Decent flavor here. You can tell it’s strong by the taste. Overall a pretty good IIPA. Will drink again.

At killer burger on tap. Smells bitter, not much for notes here. Goes down nice, carbonated well and bitter afterbite. Decent
