On tap at Pelican Pub in Pacifc City. Pours a clear gold with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is tropical fruit and pine. Thin mouth, citrus, crisp, lingering bitterness, very good.

22 oz bottle. Tasted on 4/16/15. Bottle courtesy of Espo. The aroma & taste were both ok but not overly flavorful or special... Wasn't a huge fan of this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Koskela (365) - Marysville, California, USA - APR 20, 2015
A bit of choc and grain come from this clear deep red/brown brew with a light creamy colored brown head. A earthy nutty roasted light choc flavor in this medium bodied brew. A very decent brown.

An average imperial ipa. Malty not sweet not citrus more west coast bitter. Not very enjoyable syrup and bitter. Very nice head not much aroma. From a bomber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear amber with great lacing. Huge citrus hop aroma with solid maltiness. Crazy bitter from start to finish, though somehow doesn’t feel like 8%

Restrained aroma leads to a discreet flavour profile - all done to perfection. Only problem is that you’d be in big trouble if you drank as much as you’d want to.

It’s been a long time coming for me and this Imperial India Pale Ale from the Oregon coast. I found a big bottle for a decent price today, and so history will be made tonight. It has a typical IPA aroma, nothing suggestive of a whopping 8% alcohol. The taste itself is rather subtle as well, at first, but then the strength comes through. Overall a good beer, not extraordinary, and nothing to make me ashamed of putting it off for so long.

mjg74 (2688) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Bottle from Roth’s. Medium amber in color. Nose is heavy on citrus and hoppiness. A little sweetness is noticeable as well. Full mouthfeel. Good malt balance as well.

WABeerFiend (301) - - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle on 08.27.14. Poured from a bomber into a mason jar style glass on 10.08.14. A: Caramel, light citrus, and brown sugar. It’s very subtle. A: 2 finger head. See through copper body. T: Caramel, pine, and hop resin dominate. Brown sugar and flower are subtle. P: Crisp. O: This is a malt dominant IPA. The bitterness is acidic and lingers annoyingly. It’s not undrinkable, but not enjoyable. The flower sweetness is nice, but this is not in the West Coast style. Unfortunately, the sink drank it.

Nice DIPA. Deep copper color with small silky head, robust hop aroma, some citrus. Taste adds more resinous hops and a little alcohol warmth. Medium wright, slightly chewy, and slippery.
