3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Hazy caramel, orange tinted, large frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Herbalish nose, good does of citrus rind, hops are somewhat muted.   Smooth on the tongue, certainly malty but not over the top.   I am surprised its not hoppier, but for me thats a bonus.   If anything, its actually on the malty side but yet also doesn’t seem all that big for an IIPA.   Very clean, finishes very smooth.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Even a little bit creamy and sweet.   I like the fact that its not overly hopped.   Not in my top five, but this one sits pretty well with me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Hazy amber/orange with a small off white head and a bit of sediment. Aroma of citrus, grass, herbs and caramel. Taste is bitter with a sweet malty base, alcohol is very well hidden. Medium body with average carbonation and a dry hopy finish. Very nice IIPA, not sure about the freshness though.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very fine example of the PNW Double IPA. Lots of hops in the aroma, big citrus hop flavor and loads of smooth bitterness is balanced nicely by malty sweetness. Very drinkable from the lighter body but the high ABV makes it dangerous. This is what a IIPA was meant to be, a great balance of hops, malt, and alcohol.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big bott, imported for Brewnz! A luscious citrus pine in ya face hop aroma, its taken me 3/4 of the bottle to get this far. Damm ratebeer, dont you wish you could drink it without having to think abt it! Anyway, this is mothers milk - such well balanced warmth and sweetness in the palate, resinous well balanced citrus smorgasboard - nothing dominates, just a fine equalibrilum of all things US Cascade. Oh the sweetness - devine...!!!xxxxx

22 oz. bottle- Hops hops and more hops, in case you didn’t realize this beer has some hops, correction- shit loads of hops, but it also has a nice sweet aftertaste. At 8.8% alcohol this beer is smooth, mellow, sweet, and I almost forgot, hoppy.
