Bottle from the Bier Stein, Eugene. Pours a darker orange. Small amount of off-white. Aroma rich, floral, amazing. Body wonderful, lively balance with some creamy overtones. Finish crisp yet creamy. Doesn’t get much better than this...

Clear golden yellow with thick fluffy white head. Aroma is piney flowery hops. Taste is dank resinous pine with grapefruit citrus follow through with a soft malty backbone. Aftertaste is lingering bitter resinous piney hops. Palate is sticky resin. Overall great balance and delicious hoppy bite. Outstanding double IPA.

A long time want for me. The pour is yellowy orange with a white foam like head that leaves quite the lacing. The aroma is heavenly. Huge piney hop aroma. I would love a side by side with Enjoy By and PtE. I think the alcohol is a bit more noticeable in the taste than both of those. This is still smooth and delicious. Such a good beer before Independence Day. Also #50 IIPA!

On cask @ the brewery. Pours cloudy medium golden with small head. Aroma is big bitter citrus notes. Taste is clean, sweet somewhat thin body. Massive hops - notes of pine, grass, grapefruit. Bitterness lingers but not so much that it interferes with the crisp finish. Incredibly drinkable for the abv.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours clear dark yellow with one finger head that fades to a persistent film. Pine/citrus aroma. Very clean taste of citrus with just the right amount of sweet malts. Full palate, not sticky or syrupy. Nice hop and alcohol tingle. Finish of pine hops but not overbearing. I’m not a big IPA guy but this is very good.

I’d heard good things about this one and it did not disappoint. Bottle from Nugget. Lots of complex hop flavors, unique citrus profile, pine, spices... very good.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden orange, with a medium off white head. Aroma is stone fruit and berries with some pine and tropical fruit too. The aroma dominates this big ipa, and much more complex than the flavor, which is a bit underwhelming compared to the aroma, but the aroma is so good thard not a knock. Really good beer.

Bottle. Somewhat hazy dark golden with a white dens head. Aroma has tropical fruits in perfect balance with the malt notes. Citrus, pine, pineapple, mango... Taste is pine bitterness with a fruity sweetness and light malty sweetness followed by a nice dry lingering bitter finish. Truly great!
