On tap. Dark orange pour with thin layer of head. Big, hoppy nose. Wonderfully bitter with excellent balance and well-hidden abv. Pricey, but a very good IIPA.

This is a very special ale from a small brewery in northern Idaho. It has all the hallmarks of a great IIPA. I would always put it in my top 5.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber, moderate to large tannish head, foamy, nice lacing. Strong resiny nose, pithy, slight alcohol and hops. Fruity malt aroma, not unlike a dubbel. Pours cloudy but settles quickly into a clear amber. Weird. Moderately sweet dark fruit flavor with hint of citrus. Hops are well blended and not overpowering as the trend seems to be lately. Alcohol is muted. Body is medium. Texture is chewy. When warmer, the beer finishes with a fairly dry mandarin orange taste. A nice double. Balanced in all regards. Good job.

Poured a murky brown w/ a huge head. Aroma is alcohol and dried fruit. Syrupy palate. Flavor is nicely balanced malt to hops. Not as hoppy as I would expect from an imperial iPa. There is citrus, grass, alcohol, and chocolate. I was pleasantly impressed w/ everything about this brew except the finish, which has a bit of an unpleasant aftertaste. I think its the breath of grapefruit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle. Nicely balanced DIPA, strong grapefruit and resin hops offset with a creamy malt. Not a hop bomb for sure, maybe I didnít get to the bottle fresh enough, but it made it rather easy drinking for sure a strong and thick beer. Overall, "balance" is the word of the day.
