On tap at the Parkway in Tacoma: malty mild IIPA with caramel notes and crispness. Initially not wowed because it wasn't dank, but growing on me.

Can. Pours bright clear gold. Huge fresh nose and big white head. Taste iOS fresh with a nice citrus hop profile. Decent malt balance. I would drink this often if i could find it in tx.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a clear amber with about a finger of thick white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, pine and tropical fruits. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet. Mostly caramel and citrus. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Overall, very good. Not as good as some other beers out there, but I would gladly drink this any day.

Pours orange with a finger white head. Smell is tropical hoppiness, taste is floral, dirty and bitter. Interesting, but nothing special.

12oz bottle. pours out a reddish/brown color. aroma was malt forward with some earthy hops present. malty on the tongue with some blah hop flavor. nothing from this beer reminded me of an imperial ipa. i still would like to try other offerings from them considering they will be opening up shop in Wisconsin soon..

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12-oz can. Pours a hazy medium amber with a dense and creamy tan head that takes off as soon as it touches the moustache. Very mild apricot nose mixed with caramel. Creamy medium body with modest carb. Caramel and apricot mid palate, along with a bit of nitrogenous funk. Not a welcome addition. Mild finish.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very solid head that last. Actually impressive how long this head endures. Nice hop aroma. This was from a can, as soon as its popped, the aroma comes clear. Taste is sweet with a Hop punch at the end... Citrus herb. Excellent Job. As good as some great IPAís from Great Divide.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
May 2010: Pint served at Ales and Aces (Las Vegas). The bar is dark but the beer looked a clear amber/orange colour, on top sat an off white thin head that soon became a wisp and collar.
Hops and hints of pink grapefruit came across my nose.
The hops content killed whatever else might have been in the brew, no malt flavours could I find, some inkling of a citrus presence tried to appear, but got beaten back by the hops, which strangley didnít give the beer a huge bitterness like some hops can (and do).
A different beer for me, pleasant, but not a world beater.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 Appearance was hazy orange amber with creamy 2 finger off white lasting head, lacing throughout glass. Aromas where sweet honey caramel malts with citrusy buttery hops, spices. Taste was sweetness of malts upfront with the resinous lemony grapefruit hops the in end with an alcoholic acidic bite. Palate was smooth yet thin for a DIPA with creamy carbonation. The meduim body should be heavier, then the resinous bitter lasting finish. Could be smoother finish. DIPA average...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(12oz bottle from Total Wine Henderson). Pours a clear copper color with massive tan head. Lively carbonation. Aroma is caramel, resin, citrus and some tropical fruits. Taste is sweet with some bitterness on the end. Thinner bodied with a slick texture. Bitter, but smooth finish. Not bad at all, but its got a way to go before it can compete with the multitude of great DIPAs.
