22oz bottle from PDX. Clear deep amber with a smallish off white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, caramel, prune and alcohol,. Flavor is toasty/bready malt, clean hop bitterness, dried fruit and a light alcohol warming. Medium body with a somewhat slick mouth feel. Really interesting beer, lots of northwest hop character with toasty malt and light alcohol, it all comes together well.

Marron pâle avec un petit col blanc. L’arôme du malt caramel, épices, et un peu d’agrumes. En bouche il y a du malt caramel, et quelque chose qui ressemble du malt Anglais. Pas mal houblonée pour le style.

16 oz can split with a friend. Pours clear amber with a white head. Pretty balanced out for a strong ale. Pretty hoppy with some cheese and a bit of nail polish. Drinkable.

16 oz can- Pours slightly cloudy dark orange with a decent light tan head that slowly reduces. Aroma is hops, which is unexpected and welcomed, spicy rye bread, some caramel malts. The taste is similar to a red IPA, in fact it very much reminds me of Sierra Nevada Flipside Red, which is a good thing when your beer is compared to the masters at Sierra Nevada. Nice caramel malts blend wonderfully with the hops, good.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3443) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 16, 2015
This 7.3% American Strong Ale poured out a vibrant reddish gold with a thin light beige head in my snifter. A powerful hop aroma of piney citrus with a touch of dank rises from the glass to entice the drinker. The zesty carbonation on a soft body is quite satisfying. The taste is sweet malts, fruity hops with just a bit of pine. A very satisfying ale, beyond the beautiful can this is a great beer to check out this winter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle pours a clear, burnt orange with some creamy, white head. Nose is all DIPA, very pithy, orange, herbs, pine, some guava. Flavor has pine, grapefruit, kumquat, orange peel, mild honey. Full bodied, bitter finish. DIPA all the way.
