Draught at Chuck’s Hop Shop, 85th st, Seattle
Hazy amber color. The caramel dominates, yet it’s lean, and then the powerful and resiny hopping happens; long final.

On tap @ Collective on Tap. Pours dark brownish amber with thin off white head. Aroma is thin, sweet caramel malt. Taste is clean medium caramel malt with tannic bitter hoppy finish. Somewhat harsh notes of oak, pine, and grass. Not bad, but I wouldn’t seek this out.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A nice one. Many times with this style -- particularly at high ABV like here -- the flavor is way too resin-forward. No such issues here.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Fiery amber, fairly clear, moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Stale musty hop nose.   A little dank.   Cerealy up front, dank, sweaty, not all that hoppy.   Backside is very mealy, a bit biscuit, like honeycomb cereal on steroids.   Hides the 9.5% well, but isn’t bright nor all that fresh.   Finishes like it started, cereal like grains, a muted hoppiness, with a touch of heat.   Not a fan.

Cloudy dark amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is a great carbonation of soft and smooth but with good fine carbonation providing a nip. Lovely bittersweet pine hops, trace of mint. Underneath is good creamy malt with a touch of caramel. Finishes creamy soft with more piney hops, mostly sweet this time. Touch of fresh orange. Slight aniseed. Well joined up and super drinkable DIPA.
