This is one that I NEVER thought I would have seen without a trip to PDX... Instead it was enjoyed 4-5 times tonight at the 10 Barrel IPA fight/fest. Pours a light orangish with a tight white head. This is one of the most hop forward beers I have ever had and still is a "bit" balanced... tons of tropical fruits and huge citrus zest... tangerine/red grapefruit.... and hints of pine on the finish. Lighter than should be body... carbonation is nice. For 9+% this is a teddy bear... drinkability is off the charts... super beer for sure.

Slightly hazy light amber color with a one finger off white head. Lots of pine resin and citrus rind in the nose. This is a nice, chewy hop juice IIPA with lots of pine resin, candied grapefruit rind, peach, and a nice warming alcohol bloom in the finish. Very easy drinking for the ABV and all the hops.

Large off white head, good retention, minimal lace. Hazy, orange colored brew. Danky nose, sweet malts. Body is full, chewy, soft carbonation.Semi sweet malts up front with piny citrus notes. Tad earthy. Fairly dry finish, tame bite. Not bad. Thanks 5K!

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy citrus, light mango, peach, and grapefruit. It pours a mostly transparent amber with a soapy two finger off-white head that has good retention and leaves behind some clumpy lacing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus/orange with light mango and peach. There are some faint notes of caramel in the background. The finish has mild grapefruit, herbal hops, and light lemon. There’s no sign of the 9.5% abv. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, this is pretty tasty and drinks way too easy for 9.5%.

CampesinoTino (777) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bomber. Dark honey golden pour with a half-inch of sudsy off-white head. Strong notes of hops oil, pine resin, mint and ripe citrus in the aroma. Taste is an aggressive blend of tropical fruit, grapefruit and resiny hops bitterness with a bit of pine and lemon around the edges. Also a noticeably chewy caramel malt presence holding it all together. Overall, an impressively massive DIPA.

Bottle - thanks Chris! Pours clear orange, large off-white head dissipates slowly leaving lots of residual foam and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is in your face pine, dank forest floor, some passionfruit. Flavor is light plus sweet, medium bitter, not harsh. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Not bad, but not top tier.

Lukaduke (2317) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Pours a rich orange copper color with three fingers of tight sticky white foam. Lots of tangerine and citrus up front that opens into a floral straw, pine forest dankness backed by soft candy corn sweetness. Palate follows with a huge hop profile meandering through tropical fruit, citrus, sap, fieldgrass and honey. Really nicely constructed and the bitterness to sweetness level keeps it very drinkable !

Solid DIPA. As usual, more resiny notes for such a high ABV. There’s nothing that calls this out as being best of breed dipa, but nothing that says otherwise, either. Just a very good, solid specimen.

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.
