Brentv (658) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 1, 2014
On tap at the brewery’s Raccoon Lodge. I had the bourbon barrel aged version. Amber golden pour. Big malty citrus and caramel aroma with plenty of bourbon. Taste is the same, sweet, some bitter hoppiness. Like an amber barleywine with the bourbon barrel flavors. Nice, but not the usual DIPA.

Gription79 (2839) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Had on draft at the brewery. Resinous, sweet, caramel malts, fruity hops, a bit of alcohol heat. Meh, not my style of IIPA. This beer could use more hop flavor.

On tap at the Barrel House. Pours a copper color with a medium white head. The aroma is big malty sweetness, some caramel and dust. The flavor has some bitterness, maybe some light citrus, but really this is a dry malty brew with caramel and some toasted malts. Really this is an Amber Ale in terms of flavor profile. Nothing wrong with this beer, unless you are searching for a modern big IPA let alone IIPA.

after4ever (7620) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Draft at ebp. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a creamy, sudsy tan head. Big sweet caramel, tangerine, and citrus nose. Very appealing. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Toast, caramel, and fresh ttopical fruit mid palate. Clean and balanced and straightforward. Big resiny pithy bite at the end.

mcberko (14682) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2012
On tap at Cascade, pours an opaque orange with a small beige head. Aroma of citrus hops, orange zest and dry citrus peel. Flavour is huge citrus zest bomb, with dry orange zest / peel dominating, with some biscuit malt to back. Leaves a nice zesty, hoppy astringency on the finish. Surprisingly great. Cascade comes through with a great non-sour.
