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.
