Sampled on tap at city beer. A nice fully bodied hop ale. Quality brew with a crisp palate. Hop blend is crisp and lingers on the tongue.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear copper with a creamy off-white head. Lots of hop. Resin, floral, ci9trus. Med body. Flavor is very hoppy. Citrus, resin and I think floral. It’s bitter as all get out. Oh, there’s some light roast caramel backbone. But if you don’t look for it, it may not stand up. This finishes NW dry and bitter, but not quite so harsh as many. Extremely nice!

Lightly resinous and warming to finish with more pine, dry bread, dry caramel. Lingering dusty pine. Standard big and piney DIPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
this pours a darker copper with a large light tan head. This beer is more malty then hoppy. It is sweet and malty with a light hops flavor. There is a light bitter after taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A decent IPA, although a tiny bit too bitter for my taste. Nice, subtle aromas of tropical fruit and pine. My one criticism is that it was just slightly bitter enough that the aromas were impeded. Beautiful deep amber color, quite dark. An oily mouth-feel makes it feel substantial. Overall quite good, definitely on the strong side.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Burger. Nearly amber pour. Piney, citrus aroma and palate... With a nice undertone if sweet malt. Balanced with nice bitterness. Solid. Would drink again.

Deep orange with a very nice foam. Big Pacific Northwest IPA aroma is balanced nicely with a sweet caramel base. I can’t say that any specific variety or single flavor draws me into this beer. It’s just nice.

Bottle from World Market. The nose is hopped and somewhat piney. Not super hoppy for a double. A little sweetness with a bit fair amount of hop flavor. Pretty malty for the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to docjitsu. Pours a clear reddish orange color with a huge fluffy white head that looks like whipped egg whites. The aroma is of slight fruity hops. Subdued for a DIPA. The taste is malty to start but quickly finishes bitter. Refreshing mouth feel.
