A pretty standard imperial IPA. Good hop flavors and aromas, lower alcohol than some and itís much harder to taste the alcohol here than in many beers with its abv. Slightly wattery for an iIPA.

Eh, I was afraid of this. I gambled and lost. Redhook just seems avg. to me and this was no exception. Pretty astringent. Could use a more malty backbone. One and done.

1/15/10 on draft at the Woodinville Brewhouse. Aroma is all sweet hop flora forward with a strong citrus tang and just enough slight caramel note to balance. Appearance is surprisingly clear gold with a very well maintained white head. Flavor is very well balanced; Flora, grassiness, earthiness and even a little hop astringency are there in equal amounts, making for a full profile that never gets harsh. Mouthfeel is quite warm, medium bodied with a medium starchy finish and moderate carb texture. Overall, the body makes this one almost too easy to drink. Try in a schooner, it will quickly become two.

Pours a nice light orange with slight haze. The white head leaves a cover on the beer and collars the glass. Aroma has lots of grass, like a fresh meadow. The malt is also very present in the nose. Althought the mouthfeel starts relatively full and yeasty, if falls off quickly and it a little watery on the finish. This is a nice beer, with a little harsh bitterness on the end of the finish. I donít get too much hops on this for a double -- and those i get are a harsh bite of bitterness.

22 oz bottle. Pours amber, thin head, big lacing. Aroma quite week for a IIPA, mostly malt and pine. Flavor is similiar, I was expecting a bigger citrus and hoppy taste, especially in the finish. Overall itís not a bad beer, it just doesnít fit into what I define as an imperial IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Light gold and orange colored in appearance with an inch of sudsy white head. The aroma is slightly dank and earthy hops, grapefruit and caramel malt. The flavor starts strong on the herbal hops and sour grapefruit along with a good dose of toasted malt and orange citrus. The body has standard IPA-level carbonation and finishes with more malt and caramel notes and a mild citrus aftertaste. Itís drinkable enough but not terribly memorable.

On tap at brewery. Pours a deep copper with thin white head. Nice aroma of citrus and pine. Flavor is actually well balance with a good hop presence and the right amount of hops. Decent beer. Best I have had from redhook.
