Wow! Golden color as the beer pours with a rich white head, citrus/piney nose denoting good dry hopping. Bold flavors of citrus, carmel and medium carb. finishes spicy, resiny and very dry with lingering bitterness. These guys are really putting out some good beers now!

Draft - Sweet caramel and orange hops. Clear gold with a decent white head. Sweet but harsh hoppy notes. Big lingering bitterness and pith and resinous flavours. To edgy.

On tap at Northwest, pours a hazy golden with a small beige head. Aroma is nearly non-existent, with light spicy hops. Flavour is the same, with abrasive spicy hops, light cosmetic notes and dry crackery malt backing. Very spicy and abrasive. Needs refinement.

Hazy blonde. Tons of bitterness. Light grapefruit, quite woody. Not all that complex, pithy, husky, ok DIPA.

Bottle. After drinking triple IPAs for a couple hours, this seems damn close to water. Fortunately, I had a palate cleanser before this. Pours a clear dark golden color for me. Nose is cleanly floral. Taste is quite bitter, but has a pleasant lightness about it. Actually ends up being fairly crisp for me. Not bad at all.

A double ipa from Washington is crazy. I guess hence the name crazy bitch. I mean, this thing is seriously hoppy. Nice sweet malt up front, but from there its all hops in your face. If hoppy bitch is hoppy, crazy bitch sure is crazy. ..hence the name.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Iíll preface this by stating Iím not a DIPA/IIPA fan but Iím always willing to explore and see if I may find one that changes my mind. To be fair to the beer, I donít feel rating it anything less than 7 on taste would be appropriate considering this isnít one of my fav styles.
However, I do love the smell of a strong-hopped beer and this one didnít disappoint at all! Loved the piney, citrusy aromas that lingered until the last drop. Appearance and mouthfeel were nice as well. Iíd think that if you were a DIPA connoisseur, youíd probably think this was a pretty decent option.
