4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Collins Pub. ’tender 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.

Poured from a growler on 10.31.15. A: Red grapefruit, caramel, pine, and orange cream. A: Hazy amber body with lots of bubbles. 2 finger fluffy white head. T: Red grapefruit, pineapple, orange cream, mango, and caramel dominate. Pine is subtle. P: Creamy smooth. Medium to heavy mouthfeel with some resin. O: It’s super easy to drink and very juicy, but with balance. I can see why people freak out over this one.

Tap at Clyde Common in Portland. Clear copper pour. Floral but deeply resinous hop aroma. Taste is rich floral resin hops - bigger maltier than an SD-style IPA but in a similar vein. Delicious. Rich palate with good carbonation. Really great DIPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growlette from Growl Movement. Pours a clear dark amber color with a very light amount of foam on top. Strong sticky sugary hop nose. Very highly hopped nose. Sweet and hoppy up front. Lots of hops with a sort of a dark fruit character to it. Quite sweet throughout with a lot of sweetness. Reminds me more of a hoppy barley wine or ASA. Tasty though.

Draught @ Mikkeller Bar Victoriagade. Pours golden with a small offwhite head that doesnät leave much trace on the glass while dissipating.
Smell is tiny malty and fruity with biscuits, grapefruit juice, mango, papaya, freshly cut grass, pine needles and elmon zest. Taste is sweet,
bitter, tiny malty and fruity. Mouthfeel ie round, slightly astringent and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with biscuits,
grapefruit, mango, payaya, freshly cut grass, pine needles, lemon zest and hints of butter. Fair but unspectacular...
