Prufrockstar (1578) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Goblet at the brewery. Aroma is citrus, pine, caramel. Light amber color clear with white head. Taste: A lot of caramel malty sweetness, floral hop bitterness that isnít too big but not too small. Pretty well-balanced. Lingering bitter finish on the tongue. Med/full body. Lively carbonation; smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Overall: Surprisingly smooth, easy-drinking considering the style/ABV.

Lightly hazed honey amber with a short white head. Hoppy aroma is floral, tropical, green pine, perfume, alcohol. Medium-full bodied, highly bitter, semi-sweet, silty / pasty texture, quickly drying. Sharp and angular.

stevoj (3022) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Bottle brought to bottle share from Safeway in Ephrata, WA. Nice to know you can get superb stuff at Safeway! A hit of hops was what was needed after sampling sours, stouts and ciders all evening, and this did not disappoint. Typical big bold NW IIPA, but right on target for palate adjustment.

That1Guy (2085) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2015
12 oz can packaged it looks like 7/20/15. Says the IBUs are at 1 billion. Prompts a good laugh. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Good amount of citrus on the nose with some passion fruit/mango notes in there as well. Medium mouthfeel. Bitter flavor with some grapefruit rind and a hint of nail polish. Pretty dry finish. The abv doesnít show too much. Nice.

Wombata (550) - Kobe, JAPAN - AUG 12, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2015 Can from The Beer Shoppe in Yakima. Aroma: Expansive piney and grassy hop and passion fruit plus tropical fruit. Palate: Lively carbonation accentuates the piney hop flavor and bittering without going overboard. Flavor: Pine and grass attack with full on passion fruit, apricot and tropical fruit onslaught. Comment: Big malty body is well matched with the hop flavor bitterness. This succeeds and I prefer it to Fremontís Pale Ale and IPA which IMO have a few problems.

Beaver (1485) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2015
12 oz can. Pours hazy golden orange with a big creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is subdued resiny piney hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malts with a little fruit and resiny grassy hops that have a harsh tarry finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, an OK DIPA. The hop profile is a bit harsh.
