Draft @ Burien. Hazy light amber, light grapefruity nose, lots of malts, crystal, dash of grapefruit. By the numbers DIPA.

Ferris (6521) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2014
Draft - Sweet caramel and earthy hops. Cloudy copper with a decent beige head. Boozy sweet caramel and a balanced bitterness. A malty almost Barleywine but I like it.

kathouse (1182) - Nevada, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Amber with brown tones. Head is dense with a baked biscuit aroma and light caramel. Hop aromas are floral and earthy with a hint of pine. Body is sweet, creamy, with an oily mouthfeel. Bitterness barely keeps up and the finish has a fusel alcohol taste. This one needs work.

luttonm (2868) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Draft at Elliot Bay, Lake City. Warm hazy orange. Soapy yeast aroma, medium to heavy body. Rosy, soapy hops. Smooth, nothing horribly off. Just not very interesting.

BillKismet (3412) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Petrified wood amber color with a creamy, cask-like head. Perfumy and lightly floral hop nose. The body is creamy, so perhaps this was served on cask. Woody undertones, moderately perfumed hop body. Certainly and alcohol and fruit presences, but not quite out of control.

after4ever (6466) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Draft at uber. Pours a hazy burnished golden brown with a gorgeous dense and creamy tan head. Loose drippy lace. Mild caramel and pine nose. Creamy medium body, almost slick, with mild carb. Toast, caramel, and a bit of butter on the mid palate. Mild finish.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 11, 2011
Golden amber pour, white head. Biscuity malt on the aroma, floral, herbal hops, a whiff of butter. Tastes of crackery biscuitymalts, herbal, floral, citrusy hops with a resinous finish. Has a bit of a diacetyl buttery flavor with a touch of slickness on the body. Not enough to ruin the beer, but it’s not a flavor I enjoy in IPAs.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 24, 2010
On cask at West Seattle location. Opaque gold brown with no head. Interesting aroma, yeast, toast, some earthiness. Sweet malts followed by bitter citrus in the taste.

riversideAK (5726) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Nose is rather grainy with some buttery notes, light sweetness, and citrus hops - mostly lime and grapefruit notes. Does not smell all that promising due to the butter. Golden hazy pour, thin head. Grainy malt bill, lots of bread, pale malts, not a lot of butter as I got in the nose. Nice juicy citrus finish. The hop profile takes a back seat to the grainy malt bill, but I enjoyed this one after I got over the odd nose.
