trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - MAY 8, 2013
On tap at Diamond Knot alehouse in Mukilteo on 5/3. Pours a hazy tannish copper color with a thin white head that leaves spotty lacing. Smells of pine, oak, and toffee. Tastes of all the same thing’s with a slight bourbon flavor as well. Mouthfeel is thick and oily with a dry finish. This is one of the beers I always try to have when its available when I go to Diamond Knot. Unique flavoring for an ipa but very tasty.

skoisirius (1880) - Earth, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Draft at the 2006 Washington Cask Beer Festival. Remember this being a standout through many that evening. Light elements of port buried underneath bits of citrusy hops. Thick and dank.
