Almost indistinguishable from the standard IPA = Not much additional malt, more of a dry hopped profile. Very floral with an astringent, oily hop flower finish.

Draught. Lekker floral hop flavour. Orange with lasting foamy head. Refreshing bitter flavour with floral notes. Full mouth feel and lasting finish. Seek this one out.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 On Tap - Hilltop Ale House, Diamond Knot Brewery, Old Towne Ale House. This is a transformational ale. Tread lightly with this powerful brew. This IPA is very close to the heart of the standard of the northwest style. I can’t find a brew like this anywhere else in the country. Best of breed for sure.

Dark amber color with a nice head. Thick aroma and a great flavor this is a IMPY IPA. Has a deep malt and hops flavor and the hops win every time. This is a spicy and deep rich flavored beer. Grea BEER...

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 18, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2007 Draft at Taphouse Grill in Seattle. Pours orange amber with an off white retentive head. Aroma of spicy hops. Initial flavor is heavy on malt, with notes of caramel and toasted grains. Mid palate has hints of orange with a strong dry hopped resiny bitterness. Finish is slightly dry, woody, with a strong herbal (sage, mint, pine) bitterness. Not bad, but I am not the biggest fan of the Columbus hop..

thedm (4928) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 5, 2007
This draft brew from the Oregon Brewers festival poured a large sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent softly carbonated golden brown colored body. The mild aroma was hoppy and dirty sock. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of cascade hops and orange peel. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2008 draft @ the taphouse grill - loved the warning from the barkeep that this was 7.5%...haha...comes clear and dark orange; full aromas of hops and mild mix of malts; goes down very smooth with that slight dry aftertaste...........5/16/08 update: ymmm, just nice to have again at the brewery and slightly more tasty than I remember

Amber with an average head with good lacing. Nutty malt with orange and pine - very nice bitterness that lingers on the back of the tongue. A very nice IPA that I found enjoyable.

On draft at the Diamond Knot Brewery back on 06Jul2007. This double IPA (or xIPA as DK calls it) is good stuff. Nice darker amber color with a creamy head. Good malt sweetness that gets covered by a hop flavor that is very strong but not killer bitter (is there such a thing?). I really like this beer. It has such a creamy body and just had a great hop finish. Nice piny, citrus, herb flavors in the hops. I had 4 of these after I rated it.
