4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Apex. Pours bright, lightly hazy orange copper with thin lacy white head. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel malt, big juicy citrus hops featuring orange and mango. Taste is likewise - malt is sweet but really moves to the background as the floral hop notes dominate. Hops are huge and juicy up front, dank and earthy on the back. This is outstanding for a BB DIPA, and thatís saying something.

Draft pour to a sniffer at the Thirsty Hop. Listed at 9%. Bright oily orange pour with a patchy fizz head. Orange peel bitter like aroma. Juicy up front, with a delicious orange flavor to it. Fruity hop character throughout. Has a bit of a nutty background and late palate, to pair with the bitter hops. Bitterness isnít harsh though. Overall a smooth, easy drinking imperial. Very nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Half growler at the coop for 7 bucks. Pours out clear golden color with little head, almost flat ish. Iím not sure if that because of my growler. Nice hop aroma with woody notes and bready malts. Flavor leans more towards the malty side then the hops. Was not what I was hoping for. It finishes with a nice bitter bite but not enough to push this to the next level. Iím wondering if the carb issue played a bigger role and will revisit this rating again.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A couple of 16 oz pours from a newly opened tap house in Salem OR called Heroes.
Nice looking beer bright golden with a large frothy white head.
Great wafts of fruity, spruce tip hops..gets a little resiney but not a lot.
Taste is like the aroma with the citrus/fruitiness shining through.
Great mouth feel..medium with generous carbonation moves this big guy along easily.
Great beer..i was definitely careful walking home after just two!

Draft at brewery. Lots of tasty IPAs, double IPAs, etc. at this place, though Headshake was one of my favorites. Fruity, floral and clean. Big alcohol was hidden dangerously well. Rich malt backbone, but not overly sweet. Bread, light toast and crackers mostly. Not overly bitter, either. Good balance. Tasty stuff.
