balanced thick aroma of somewhat aged hops and carmely malt. good body. a touch thick, smooth. covers the abv well. taste hoppy, citrus, sweet malt. decent finish. i cannot freakin beleive i had a decent JJ beer. This place had 5 drainpours and a sad excuse for an RIS in the first six i tried. this is by far the best. I know thatís not saying a ton...Pliny it is not...but damn, itís not drainpour. Yay!!

Golden beer with a sticky white head. Big thick hop resin nose. Strong caramel malt backbone with grapefruit rind and apricot hop flavors. There is a long pinching bitter finish. Nice IIPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Relatively smooth for a strong beer, orange amber with abundant creamy off white head. Hoppy, piney aroma leads to very astringent taste, sharp bitterness lingers long after. Still smooth enough to mask to the high abv. Nicely done.

Slightly hazy straw color with fluffy white head. Nice spicy aroma. Not overly hoppy up front but nocely hoppy overall. Clean finish. Not bad.

Bottle - Skunky hops with a bit of grass and a light malt sweetness. Pale gold with a bubbly white head. Resin, bitterness and a candy like sweetness. A decent IIPA, doesnít have the body or malts to really back it up though.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy copper orange color with nice soapy head from a can. Aroma is grapefruit citrucy hops upfront. Some tangerines and slight malt note. Taste follows the Aroma with a medium mouth feel. Typical west coast DIPA but is very well made. No alcohol noticable in the taste. Smooth drinking Dipa. But nothing standing out accept they did put it in a can wich jmo is a plus. Iím surprised this doesnít have a much higher score. Itís tasty!

From can. Pours a hazy orange color and leaves a thin lacing on glass. Aroma is citrus with maybe a slight hint of pepper. Taste is Hoppy with citrus but is also slightly sweet. High Octane at 9.3%

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, amber beer with a three finger high head.
Nose: Tropical fruit, grapefruit, honey, citrus, pine and hops.
Taste: Grapefruit, grass, pine, tea and citrus. More nose than taste.
A solid DIPA but nothing special.

This is one of the better DIPAs out there. Very well balanced malt and hop wise, and the slight sweetness really works. Bitter but not a hop bomb.

Can from Uber in Seattle
Apricot with a loose soapy top, slightly hazy. Smells nice with peach, mango and dry, crackery malts. Flavor is well balanced on the hops to malts - not particularly bitter, but lots ofhop flavors, fruity and tropical overall. Medium bodied with light carb and a semi dry finish. Nice beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Intensely hoppy and aromatic, expressed through vibrant notes of orange zest, lime and mandarin. Precise carbonation leads to massive bitterness, buttressed by a rich malty body full of toast and caramel character. A huge IPA yet all aspects in excellent balance.
