From bomber. Pours a dark amber honey color, hazy, with a medium off-white head. Aromas of grapefruit and pine with some caramel. Taste is the same, bitter with strong sweetness in there, too. Bitter finish.

What do we have here, hmmm...a nice lookin’ DIPA from one of my favorite Oregon companies. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a nice hazy golden bronzed orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. The lacing was fairly light but carried a nice smooth glazing around the glass. The smell started off with some grapefruit in front and then had a sharp spice that I can’t quite right place what exactly that is. I will say that there is a nice onion/garlic thing going on but to me, I like that. It really smells absolutely awesome. The taste was slightly sweet and bitter and it carried over a nice spice from the garlic/onion I think I got. On the palate, this one sat right at a medium on the body. I think I wanted to drink it, but found myself sipping it for the most part. ABV seems to be slightly deceiving however, the bitterness for a DIPA is there as it adequately pounds my tongue into submission. Overall, wow, what a really nice DIPA, no flaws as this is one I super like for what it is and who it came from. I wish I could get it on a regular basis.

22. Pours a murky medium amber with a dense and creamy light tan head that never really goes away all the way. Big sweet nose, showing nice pineapple and plenty of grapefruit, along with some untoasted caramel. Creamy thick body with lively carb. Some straight caramel along with tons of fruits--lots of mango and pineapple, but mostly sweet pink grapefruit. Big grapefruity finish. This is a big bad beer that’s just waiting to get everybody into trouble.

22 oz bomber served in a tulip glass. Pours dark orangish copper with thick creamy head that retains well. Aroma is sweet juicy caramel malt with floral, leafy, hops on the back. Light notes of citrus and pine. Taste is big, lightly roasty caramel malt - sweetness is surprisingly restrained. Nice fresh hop flavors - floral citrus, pine, and vegetal notes. Fairly dry on the finish. Would love to taste this next to Green Mammoth, via my notes they seem quite similar. Hop notes are a bit richer here, so it comes out slightly ahead.

tom10101 (2781) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle (22 oz). From kbudd19, thanks! Hazy caramel/orange with a huge mostly lasting off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is quite hoppy with tropical fruits, fruits, resinous notes, caramel and light alcohol. Taste is slightly sweet and very fruity with tropical fruits, caramel, light alcohol and moderate bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Slightly dry. Lingering fruity aftertaste. Good DIPA. Quite on the fruity side. Alcohol is well hidden. Decent drinkability. Worth a try!

On tap at Beermongers. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A huge fruity nose, resinous and tropical. Very sweet hop resin flavors, a bit green, bursting sweetness, medium bitterness. Really awesome IIPA. Fresh and super flavorful.
