3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 500ml bottle thanks to Mike. The aroma is musty, fruity, tropical fruits. Fruity hop flavors, dry, soft malt character. Not bad.

Gold, light haze, white head. Aroma of grainy malt with lots of orange-tangerine-citrus hops. Flavor: loads of resiny hop flavor with tangerine, an almost lemony citrus. fruity notes, a little grassy hop character as well, finishes fairly bitter and resinous.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Bottleworks, pours a hazy golden with a medium beige head. Aroma of cat piss, moldy socks and skunky, herbal hops – WTF? Flavour is thankfully quite a bit better, with citrus and piney hops, dank earthy notes, and dry, slightly sweet biscuity malts. Actually a gorgeous beer, despite the off-putting aroma. Highly enjoyable stuff.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours cloudy orange with thin white head. Aroma is
syrupy sweet malt and citrus notes. Taste is rough pale malt and big grassy citrus hop finish. Slightly bitter up front but finishes sweet. High abv is somewhat surprising as this drinks easily. Lots of the standard DIPA taste notes but more medium bodied. Wish this were easier to find, as is it’s rare in the Seattle market.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Uber. Whew -- this one just reeks! My brother said it smelled like a sweater, and I added that it smelled like a sweater someone had worn for a few very warm days straight. Very, very dank hops over some citrusy pine and caramel. I had bitter beer face each time I took a sip of this, and I really like bitter beers...

Bottle @ The BeerMongers... Poured golden yellow with a moderate eggy, white head. Nose had tons of hops that lent towards skunk and danky earth tones. Tasted balanced with some bitterness. Loads of citrus and dense resinous hops that pushed the palate. Still balanced with some honey sweetness and grainy, cereal-like malts.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pours hazy dark orange with a short head. Complex and well balanced aroma featuring slightly bigger hops than malt. Not overly assertive orange, lemon, and pine with bready malts. Medium sweet, medium bitter flavors. Med-full body, thick-oily texture, subtle carbonation and a very long, very bitter finish.

Shared small bomber with sherm1016 just transported from Oregon this week. Darker yellow / slightly hazy color with white head. Initial nose and flavor is hoppy with taste of pine / fruit....tasty.
