3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Fat Head’s PDX. Pours clear dark orange copper with minimal white head. Aroma is big herbal, vegetal hops; sweet caramel malt that is dominated by the big hop flavor. Taste is clean caramel malt, sugary sweet throughout. Hops are sizable, dark citrus, pine, and dry on the finish. Nice DIPA.

Had the Ibusive right before this and loved it--how is this different? the aroma not as assaultive but is that cause the snifter has a smaller opening?
maybe this shouldn’t be as cold as the IPA., more resiny aroma. a fuller flavor--peach, alcohol, grapefruit. calm in the mouth, jagged finish.

Tap at Fat Head’s PDX.
A: Cloudy amber color, thin white head.
N: Orange syrup, grapefruit, some pine, and earth, more of those damp hop leaves.
T: Bitter and sweet in proportion.
M: Medium, resinous body, prickly carbonation, no alcohol presence.
O: Very good IIPA, but I also have to say I prefer IBUsive. Tough problem to have, I suppose.

Draft: This is a great example of big...delicious IPAs, with that in mind, I get tired of the same big IPAs sometimes. Yes, this is really good, and is exactly what they say it’s going to be...big malty backbone with a big bitter citrus hop profile, but that’s just what it is.
