On tap at Hops Northwest in New Westminster. Served in a large snifter. A pale orange generous and aromatic head. Dark amber orange in color, with orange citrus on the nose. Hops very noticeable up front, with a surprisingly large caramel malt component also in the forefront. Not your ultimate bitter bomb, but nicely balanced, with more malt component than most of the modern west coast IPAs. A nice glass of suds!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery.
A: Reddish copper color with a 1/2" off white head.
N: Dense pine and earth rounded off by pineapple.
T: Moderately bitter and moderately sweet. Pine and earth are here. Nothing mind-blowing, but definitely solid.
M: Decently resinous with a dry, scraping mouthfeel.
O: I thought this was going to be underwhelming, but it’s really solid stuff. Not complex but clean.

Thanks to iNBe. A rather thirst quenching DIPA. OK, it was hot and I should have chosen a different beer but it was the only one cold and I probably drank the first half of the bottle too quickly. So it was grapefruity too. Rather good, but the serious hop heads will find it a bit mild. I liked it though. Serving: bottle

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - Pours orange amber with a huge foamy cream-colored head. Nose is sharp and bitter, with pine, grapefruit,and a bit of garlic. Sweet syrupy malt underneath, and a bit of boozy heat. Taste is big and boozy, with sweet bready malt, grassy/citrus hops, and a honey sweet/garlic finish. Warm, sharp, and too big and sweet for my taste. Baffled by the high ratings on this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap: light-amber pour with minimal white head. Aroma is tropical hops, tangerine citrus and caramel. Flavor is sweet with caramel quickly moving to bitter grapefruit hoppiness and some tangerine. Overall, nice flavors and balance with the bitter-sweet; good but not great.
