UPDATED: AUG 10, 2014 All I can say is wow. If you think that youíve had it all the time you tried 60 Minute IPA, think again. Thereís a new king in town and his name is Tex. From this little brewery on the Oregon Coast comes a colossal IPA that will fry your brian. Super complex, and rich it is now my all time favorite.

Perhaps the best commercial double ipa out there. Finally a brewery is able to balance out a butt load of hop aroma and flavor with some interesting malts. You can tell they hop bursted this sucker because it has none of that early hop harsh bitterness. This is the way all IPAs should be made. Got mine at Mainbrew ABV.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Saravezaís 4th IIPA fest, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of brings out loads of cat piss, citrus hops, and some dank herbal hops. Flavour is very pungent, with loads of bitter pine, a touch of citrus, some earthy notes and more piney hops. Just enough malt to round things out. Finishes very bitter and piney hoppy. An excellent IIPA.

Tap. Poured pretty dark orange amber color with one finger of foamy head. Aroma is pretty classic NW IIPA, big citrus and pine. Flavor is juicy citrus, strong pine, and just enough malt and alcohol. Iím not sure about triple but a great double/imperial IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ apex. why is it so dark? i think barleywine but also at one point wonder if this is a CDA. Like many good IIPAs has some barleywine resonance, enhanced by that darkness. i smell hops resiny & citrus, dark caramel, prunes. The head fades quickly and then dark brown body may let a little light through.. the mouth gets confused, a light touch, but very drying.
as with aroma the flavors mix and balance--burgundy, pine, dark caramel, alcohol. fiinishes sweetly

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Belmont. Pours a dark copper color with a medium white head. A massive resin bomb nose. The flavor is big over the top resinous hops, pine, dank hop oils, big malty backbone, a bit like a barley wine but clearly a IIIP in many ways. Hell, this is good. The sweetness and green hop bite isnít for everyone (Mike J!), but despite intensity, this is drinkable. The bitterness in these IIIPAs is odd, somehow intense but also I would not describe this beer as bitter.

Brand New 22oz Bomber from Whole Foods - Pours a deep orange with an off white head, a little darker then I was expecting. Aroma is awesome, but the first thing Iím gettin is Hawaiian Pizza . I get pungent smells of fresh cut garlic, grass and pine; sweet notes of pineapple, fresh tomato and some booze. Flavors are sweet and malty. The bitterness is really nice, you can tell a lot of hops went into this. Overall I like itís but it pretty damn sweet.
