Poured from a 22. Aroma is nutty, grassy and caramel. Flavor has a nice hop punch at first, balanced out by sweet grass syrupy and nutty. Interesting beer, drinks "thick" and is packed with flavor.

I love the IBUs on this beer. It definitely seems like 100 IBU. Unfortunately there isn't too much to the pallet. I'd definitely buy it again. Cheers!

I smell hops malt and fruit in this hazy blood orange brew with almost no head. A full bodied brew crisp at first then bitter as can be with small amounts of sweetness. The beer is sweet enough to mask the 9% abv and it tastes very green in flavor.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bomber, served in a Riedel IPA glass. Pours beautiful bright orangish copper with thick creamy off-white head that laces well. Aroma is medium sweet caramel malt, and dank resinous hops. Taste is thick syrupy caramel malt, surprisingly not as sweet as suspected. Big bitter hops which cut through the heavy malt easily - notes of pine, fresh herbs, and grapefruit. Fairly big beer for the abv. Lingers quite bitter on the finish. Not its fault that my expectations were so high for this based on other Laurelwood IPAs. Maybe just a touch more malt sweetness would stand up better to the hops on this? Either way, nitpicking, solid DIPA.

22 oz bomber bought from Roth’s Sunnyslope Store in S.Salem.
$5.99 ( and on a room temp shelf).
Darker burnt orange colour, slightly hazy body with a nice sized thick and frothy off white head.
Very strong aromas..of caramel,fudge like malts and citric,floral and spicy hop. Nice stuff.
THick and very malty taste though the hops make an appearance later.
Nice on the palate..thick and low carbonation.
With the aroma i thought this was going to be a hop monster but i think months on the shelf have eroded what it once was.
Ihave noticed Roths are putting more and more of the bombers on warm shelves..not good .I think i will take my business elsewhere.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a huge frothy off-white head on there. The hops on this one are very herbal and very strong - they definitely hit you up front in the nose. Taste is sweeter and earthier than I would prefer, though there is a moderate level of bitterness to the beer. Not bad, but not really my type of DIPA.

On tap at the Eastern Oregon Beer Festival. Aroma was hops, citrus. Flavor bit of carmel, dark fruit, and lots of hops. Medium body. Finish is hoppy, tangy, with some dark fruits and malt.
