Pours an amber color with a thick white head. Aroma is dirty hops and caramel malt.The taste is earthy hops, cooper penny, with a slighty sweet malty backbone. It’s just ok. Pretty weak taste for a west coast double Ipa. It’s not a bad beer, just below average.

Tap, served in a pint glass. Pours a filtered golden color with excellent white head, great head retention leaving rings of lace as the beverage subsides. Big aromas of pine, grapefruit, slight pineapple, earthy, floral, some weeds, resiny and a kiss of caramel malt. Taste is heavy, with lots of malt character to back up the intense hoppy bitter bite. Lots of pine and oily/resiny mouthfeel, very light citrus. Nice flavors of stone fruit, caramel, toasty malts, and eventually some grapefruit. Nice crisp, dry finish. It’s nice to see a smaller/new brewery come out with big beers to challenge the market. Well done!

[US West Coast 2013] en humlig och fruktig aroma. Lite jordig i smaken. Beska med fint långt häng. Kraftig med döljer alkoholen riktigt bra!

Maltier than expected, carmally smokey overpowers the hops, I wouldn’t call this a hop head beer

Bottle; poured a dark orange color with a khaki colored head. , Aroma of orange/citrus/grapefruit, spice, herbs, and caramel. Flavor had a vibrant quality. Earthy and citrus, with a nice zest and herbal quality. Nice palate and aggressive hopping, without a huge alcohol presence.

Herbs and pines on the nose. Crimson/copper in color with a thin foam rim. Pleasant pine, herb and hops taste with a nice caramel/biscuit malt base. Fairly bitter with strong hops and alcohol on the finish. Overall, pretty well balanced with a noticable hop bitterness.
