3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This copper ale poured with a thick beige head and a floral aroma. It’s very hoppy with lots of citrus and pine lending a familiar northwest hophead aura. There is also a tasty caramel malt base that leaves a thick finish on one’s palate.

On Tap @ the Liarís Club. Clear copper color with creamy off white head. Sweet and hoppy aroma. Piney hop flavor backed by just noticeable malt sweetness. Really good tasting IIPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Poured translucent medium orange with a tall, well-retained cap of beige head and sticky lacing. The aroma picked up hefty doses of pine and grapefruit hoppage along with some dried grasses.. very sweet caramel and alcohol notes beneath. The flavor had a drier sweet caramel and candy surrounded by dried pine needle, grapefruit, and signature Amarillo bitterness. Rather rough transitions on the palate with a grainy feel.. medium-bodied.. very sweet, bitter, and boozy finish. Solid overall.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Reddish-brown-amber color with a big beige head. Hop, spice, and an almost creamy aroma. A little roasted malt in the background, but this is big hops - spice, pine, citrus. Medium body - body almost feels like it has a bit of rye in it. Hides alcohol well - canít feel it until youíve had a few and want to stand up. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice deep, dark copper ruby with a thick, sticky, and well-lacing off-white head. Aroma boasts fresh piney hops and a nice caramel malty backing. Starts full and malty, turning thinner and more bitter toward a dry, crisp hoppy finish. The malt seems to lose the battle and doesnít really put up much fight, just a little sweetness up front. Carbonation seems to be more airy than most beers and makes the beer feel too thin. Nice resiny grapefruit hop presence throughout though. A decent DIPA, just wish it were a touch thicker and sweeter. Thanks DarkElf!

"this beer is big and chewy, with a very hoppy presence (obviously) but more malty than you expect. That works more for the body than the flavor, but itís pretty darn good anyway."

22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a dark amber color, slightly hazy with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has sweet caramel, citrus and ripe fruits. The flavor has sweet caramel malts, ripe fruits, citrus, some oxidation, and vanilla. Signs of some hops with mild bitterness at the finish. This may have had some age.

Plain amber, creamy head, medium carbonation. Hoppy aroma at front with mat, butter underscore. Acidic, citric hop flavours. Hops are very intense here, palate killer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, tupalev, Dave B. and R. -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a hazy, slightly bubbly, orange with an average size off-white head. Kind of a unique aroma, yes thereís tons of hops but it also has a salty smell to it -- itís different and very pleasant. Flavour is BIG juicy citrus hops and thatís pretty much it, stay far away from this one if youíre not a Hophead. Very dry and bitter and thereís a bit of an alcohol burn. Sure itís one-dimensional but if you like the hops then itís quite tasty -- a great IPA!
