COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big flavor, intense pine and citrus aroma. We keep the malt profile clean in this Imperial IPA to let the love lights shine on the fine Northwest hops.

For a super-heavy-ass IPA this one had a lot of good, solid flavor. After one glass I would crave more.

bomber, huge pine flavors in this one, lots of bitterness, not very sweet or boozy given the abv. Nice.

MrHangover (2452) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is piney, citric, hoppy with a nice, light caramel backbone. Flavor is bitter, full citric and piney influences. The malty sweetness hits you in the back with a nice boozy touch in it. Very nice beer.

Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday tasting. Aroma is fruity piney citrus, some biscuit and caramel. Flavour is sharp strong bitterness, caramel, some liquorice, big fruits. Nice one.

Maakun (518) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2014
Deep amber with small off-white head. Sweet malts with slight roasted touch, nuts, bid citrus, pine, peach, grapefruit peel. Light sweet with strong bitter finish. Medium to full bodied. Love it.

flip_soeperman (566) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2014
Quite a nice beer, however, although it is quite bitter, the malt plays a dominant role with some honey in the aroma. Some Goldings aroma as well. Not bad, but just not exciting.

Brentv (314) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 24, 2014
On tap at ABV in Hillsboro, OR. Hazy dark yellow with small whitish head and lots of fine lacing. Big pine citrus hops aroma. Taste is pine, citrus, a little bit of caramel with other malt qualities, but never as much as the hops. Medium bitterness in the taste, lingering into and through the crisp finish. Nice DIPA.

tiong (3682) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Draught @ Baileys Taproom, Portland, OR

Pours hazy orange with a smooth foamy head. Aroma of dank wet piney hops, grass, fruits, malts and juicy notes. Taste is dank hoppy, malty, fruity and caramely. Finish is lingering bitter with massive amounts of fresh wet hops and dank fruitness. Awesome DIPA.

RedSox2004 (1214) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Clear golden amber with a dense two-finger head and very nice lacing. Stong citrus and pine hop aromas accompanied by sweet biscuity malt. Big bitterness in the taste, supported by just enough caramel sweetness, with bright citrus, pine and tropical fruits ever present. Alcohol is very subtle. Medium to full body, lively carbonation, creamy and very smooth mouthfeel, and a crisp bitter finish.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate pillowy white head on there. Nose is very hop forward, which I like; there is some nice resin and grassy notes to it. Taste is fairly bitter, and grabs your palate. Really interesting and pleasant beer.
