COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This "imperial IPA" has a very strong hop aroma and flavor, however it isnít as bitter as the Gale Force IPA. There is a strong malt backbone to offer a level of balance but with over two and a half pounds of hops per barrel it resonates hops from start to finish. With so much flavor happening you miss the 8.6% alcohol by volume so be careful when serving or drinking. Hops were added at every stage of the process...it was dry-hopped with chinooks for two weeks. 75 IBUís. Hops: chinook, centennial, columbus, cascade, bullion.

cstuartj (976) - Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Pours a nice deep gold. Nose is earthy, with hops, pin and a bit of sweetness. Taste is a bit weak. Overly sweet for a double IPA but very drinkable.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Draft, Beveridge Place. Orange pour with a white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt aroma with some orange and tangerine citrus. Sweet brown sugar and citrus flavor with some piney resin giving it a bit of bitter bite. Too sweet for my taste when it comes to DIPAs.

raphael (883) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 5, 2013
The aroma has me speechless--just cant think of words, pleasant enough, a little cherry, sweet but also woodsy. Flavor is grapefruit stained with caramel, not harsh but near, though in a simple fashion. thin and drying in mouth. lightly hazed burnt orange with thin off-white head. alcohol finish

CampesinoTino (761) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2011
Bomber (8% ABV) from the brewpub. The appearance is a hazy orange and honey golden color with creamy beige head. Aroma is a sweet and floral blend of hops, toasted malt and candied citrus. The taste opens up with bitter, resinous hops and ruby red grapefruit followed by pine, orange citrus and alcohol toward the back end. The malt holds up against the hops onslaught for the most part. The body has a slightly syrupy, creamy body with moderate carbonation. The finish is mostly citrus and vegetal hops bitterness. Along with the Barley Wine. itís the breweryís most enjoyable offering that Iíve tried.

ACHops (691) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 9, 2012
On tap @ Uber. Pours dull burnt yellow with thin head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts with just a hint of hops and some odd funky notes. Taste is big bitter juicy hops, with light citrus and pine notes. Nice caramel malt body that fades quickly into the background next to these hops. Big dominant bitterness. Not top of the class for DIPAs, but excellent for the price. I really had no idea Scuttlebutt could do a beer this good.
