3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strongest part of the aroma is pine a little too concentrated, sourish, with caramel and resin. Moderate white head on clear light amber. The pine continues in the flavor, not sour but tongue-numbing, alcohol with some caramel sweet and distant orange.

Enjoyed this last night with a couple friends. This is one of the best Imperial IPAs I’ve had from Washington. Alcohol melds well, hop aroma is amazing and the body really helps showcase the hops. Big fan of this brewery!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
"More pine than citrus, but both are present. Some balance, but still showcases the hops well, and has a pretty bitter finish. Lightly fruity. Not a standout, but nice."

Really nice, clean, crisp Imperial IPA. Pine and resin flavors overwhelm with citrus flavors kicking and fighting. Impressive Imperial IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Elizabeth St., Bellingham
Cloudy amber color with small head. Fruity caramel aroma, hoppy but a bit old, light sweat. Bold, full bodied, with moderately sweet malt and caramel flavor; strong bitterness, still some hop resins and fruitiness.
I would really like to try it fresh.
