2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy, medium amber. Really rich, chewy, bitter, lots of crystal malt, really hravy-handed on the palate.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at WA Brewers Festival, 2014. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a very small head on it. Nose is hop forward, as expected, with some resin and grassy notes to it. Taste is very bitter, and a bit earthy. Solid beer, and I did enjoy it.

Very wimpy double ipa. Nothing over powering about it. Extremely average in taste and mouth feel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Really piney, hoppy, with a somewhat sweet malty background.   A little pithy, some actual peel.   Hops seem pretty fresh, bright.   Enjoyable, could use a little more body to balance the big hoppiness.   Can’t tell its 8%.   Pretty good example, a little bruising but big hoppiness.   Only thing I would wish was a little more malt body and then we’d really have something.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lightly cloudy copper with a thin beige head. Aroma is candy-like caramel malt and resinous, piney hops. Flavor follows suit: a little sweetness with solid piney hop presence and bitter finish. A bit of citrus. A solid, tasty DIPA.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Starts with a nose of citrus followed by a caramel sweetness. Has a fairly thick head for a DIPA. Medium carbonation in a light copper color. Nice chewy body with a pleasant bitter bite that lasts just right. Very impressed, few local breweries have successfully pulled of DIPA’s.

In the bottle from Tacoma Boys: Wine and vanilla notes with a powerful head and tea-like appearance. Taste is of whiskey and caramel with strong alcohol-dominated vapors. Interesting, from a small local brewer I don’t know well. I’ll have to check them out further.
