A showcase for hops. Four Northwest hop varieties are added at five stages in the production of this full bodied brew with the intention of exhibiting the subtleties of that noble flower. A strong profile of deeply caramelized malt - and a generous ABV - provides a strong foundation so that the hops can take center stage. The fruity and floral esters evolve in the glass and linger on the palette, but at just over 90 IBUís, this beer remains enjoyable to a wide host of taste.

On tap at Hood Canal, pours a hazy orange with almost no head. Aroma is pretty restrained for the style, with resinous hops and dry bready caramel. Flavour is pretty bland for the style, with dry bready caramel and some resinous hops. For a IIPA, this is missing something. Nothing offensive, but itís just completely underwhelming.

Draft - Vegetal notes and some apple. Hazy dark gold with a decent white head. Apple and some hoppy bitterness. Nope.

Big malt bomb. It was a huge malty brew and very little hops linger smell or add to the flavor. Opps

Holy fuck, this might be the most crystal maltest beer I have ever had. For fucks sake, did we put anything else in here besides crystal malt? God damn, caramel iced tea on the nose, residual sugars, a little floral notes. Pours dark amber, nice head, good color provided by all the crystal malt. Incredibly sweet, caramel, iced tea residual sugar, light earthy peppery hops. Very sweet, tons of residual sugar everywhere. Big bodied, very hard to drink. Wow, not my favorite at all.
