4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Collins Pub. ítender was swamped on election night and spilled my first one. The aroma hit and I wanted to lick it up! Pours orange with a bit of a white head that leaves perfect concentric circles of lacing. Aroma has fresh fruit, pine, citrus and resin. Just lovely. Taste is of bitter citrus, pine and a lot of sticky resin. More and more bitter through the glass. Not very balanced, but a good example of a hop-forward NW double ipa.

Tap at Pine Box. Big citrus (grapefruit, tangelo, pineapple) and pine aroma. Massively hopped, but held together with a solid malt background. Chewy, fuller-bodied DIPA. Great dry, bitterness and strong, warming alcohol punch. Long finish. Very impressed.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Imperial Bottle Shop and Taproom. Big citrusy nose, blooms into berries. Clear bright amber color. Massive caramel initial, peaches, overripe apples / some pretty rough hops, tobacco in mid / finishes with a burst of maltiness, tropical fruit sweetness. Medium-heavy body. Very very tasty. Maintains fruitiness throughout. Maybe a touch too sweet. But Iíd have another.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Reykjavik Beer Festival. Surprisingly this one only available for a very short timeframe. Amber with a small head, massive pine in the aroma. Taste is very piney with some sticky sweetness and huge afterburn of hops. Very extreme dipa.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2014 Pint glass from draught. Pours amber with big white head. Good lacing. Big hoppy floral aroma. Floral/citrus taste with a big hop nose, a little sweet, and a pleasant hoppy bitterness. This is a great beer that Iíve had a few times and always love to see. Theyíre now limiting sales to on draught only, no growler fills. Really? Iíd love to take some home with me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Livermore Saloon. It pours a clear golden color with a huge off white head. The aroma is super juicy with lots of mango, peaches and orange. The flavor is the same with massively fruity hops and some nice florals and pine in the finish. Full bodied and fruity hops abound. A little onion. Some sweetness on the palate, but it seems to be hop derived rather than malt. Really, really good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler... Mostly-clear yellow pour with a small, creamy, white head. The hop-driven nose is musky, dank and fruity Ė apricot or peach or pluot or all three. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with dancing carbonation. The flavor and finish are both bitter and biting. Growler courtesy of ctipping!

Iíve had this both in draught and out of a growler. Both times in a pint glass, and I have to say, this beer may not be perfect, but if it isnít, itís as close to it as Iíve ever had! I could stick my whole head into the top of a glass and sniff the aroma for 5 minutes before even taking a sip! Itís phenomenal!
This is probably the best overall beer Iíve ever had. I saw one review saying that the guy had a sample of this next to a sample of DFHís 90 minute and chose this one. Iíd do the same, and thatís saying a lot!
This is a fairly regional beer, as itís not bottled or canned, only kegged. If youíre ever in the PNW and get a chance at it, do NOT pass it up!
