12 oz bottle thanks to Jimmy. Pours dark amber with a small white head. Nice citrus nose but a bit mild. Flavors of citrus and bitter hops. Some decent malt profile for balance. Bitterness on the end. Alcohol is present but not over the top. Decent IIPA.

Great typical NW citrus bomb. Nice malt background. I do like my double ipa’s to be super bitter, which this is lacking. However, the dry hop gives it a nice aroma. Good ipa (not iipa).

Bottle. Orange amber with a small white head. Nose is floral and resinous, citrus. Not bursting with complexity, but simple, fresh, and relatively (and surprisingly clean). Flavor is more grapefruit, a bit hefty and flabby, sharp bitterness. A step in the right direction for Pyramid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark red slightly hazy with thin white head, aroma brought big chewy Simcoe, some pine, grapefruit and sweet orange notes, touch of slight caramel and some hints of an earthy spice as well. Taste is sweet and slightly chewy, some big citrus up front with orange and grapefruit, going into biscuit, caramel, some toasted bread and hints of earth, finishing fairly bitter. Pretty decent.

Pine/grapefruit and a hint of syrup sweetness in aroma. The flavor is caramel malts, citrus, a mild fruit tartness, pine and a lingering bitterness in the finish.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a quick off white tight soapy head that fades to a thin collar. Aroma is floral resinous hops and malt all around with some sweet caramel scents. Taste is resinous pine spruce and floral hops with a heavy caramel malt throughout. Palate is medium and chalky with a bitter drying finish.

The best Pyramid beer I’ve tried. Awfully tasty, but not quite IIPA or DIPA, more like 1.7IPA. Fruity, spicy and a little grassy on the nose. A nice carmel malt flavor quickly clobbered by assertive hops that follows through to the long bitter finish. Could use more aroma or just LESS SIMCOE!
