3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at ABV. A clear light orange with a dense, white head that falls off to a thin ring leaving little lacing. The nose is awesome. Bright, pungent, citrus and piney hops. Bitter pine, mildly earthy, mildly minty. Moderate tropical fruit as well. The palate opens with a big, pleasing pungent bitterness, palate bruising in its awesomeness. Bright hop flavor with a ridiculous amount of pine with a little spruce, grapefruit and candied orange peel. While the beer is resiny on the finish, it does feel just a hair watery on the mid palate in a way that?s distracting. Malt character is practically absent. Medium light in body, moderately carbonated , this beer has a long, bitter finish with grapefruit peel and zest most noticeable. Barley Brown?s DIPAs have always had a mild astringency on the bitterness and this isn?t an exception. The Chinook also adds a little catty flavor. Nice stuff.

On tap at APEX. Awesome beer. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A massive fruity fresh hop nose. A deep rich hop flavor, huge fruit, some resin, lemons and orange, a bit of dry malt backbone. Flavorful, big and super drinkable. Lovely. Reminds me of PTE a bit.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear dark yellow/orange with a nice long lasting white head.. great lacing.. Nose is a massive tropical fruit bowl that has just enough pale malt to move this up into the DIPA realm, but never is sweet.. just a hop delivery device. Nice bitterness, but not teeth-scraping, tons of clean American hoppiness... Has to be a bunch of Citra in this monster... One of the best smelling/tasting PNW DIPA’s I have had in a long while.

Great aroma mix of green hops, pine hops. dry caramel. Clear deep gold color with modest white head. Full without being weighty in the mouth. Crisp flavor with a keening hop edge: hops, honey, oak, a distant boiled greens. sharp finish
