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 oneís for you.

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.

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 Daleís. 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 Daleís, but itís a bit rougher around the edges. Setting that aside, itís 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 itís 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

Fruity, herbal hop aroma. Stale-like oxidized aroma; less of that in the flavor, but itís there. Citrus/grapefruit and peppery hops. Light caramel malt.

Can. Pours a clear reddish amber color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose is pretty light for me and only has a bit of grassiness coming through. Taste is quite bitter, and has a surprising bit of toastiness coming through. Interesting.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear amber under a thick foamy off white head. The nose was grassy and piney with something like clean mountain spring water. Big resiny and floral flavor with a clean biscuity caramalt undertone with a small sticky sweetness toward the finish. Kinda leafy bitter throughout.
