trujahwarrior (510) - 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.

bhensonb (13821) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 15, 2016
Tap at the brewpub. Pours slightly ruddy copper with a large beige head. Aroma is moderately dark/sweet malt with mixed hop. Flavor is malty, with mixed hop and some definite wood notes. Sort of a roasty barley wine; sort of a malty DIPA. Not a trace of heat for me. Went down quite a treat. A little bit warming. There’s enough bitter to nicely balance the malt.

Draft pour at the Collective Hop Mob. Pours a dark copper color with a foam head and lacing. Very mild aroma of fruit. Flavor is straw like, grassy hops, and a sturdy fruit background. Fun beer here.

skoisirius (1907) - 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.
