3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
At Avery’s 2012 Strong Ale Fest. Darkish gold, kinda bronze, small foamy head. Aroma is super dank, kinda like copper with a grapefruit tone. Body is large but very smooth with minimal carbonation, bitter floral/pine hops with a pale cereal/caramel background. Pretty malty, with most of the hop tones being flavor, not bitterness. But quite bitter. Just seemed a little uncomplex.

Excellent DIPA. Great aroma and flavor - goes down easier than expected at 10% and 100IBU. Nice balance of sweetness and bitterness, but it definitely lets you know whose boss: the hops. An impressive offering from SN

On tap; pours an orange copper with very little head. Aroma is a bit spicy from the hops. Flavor is a rush of citra hop in a burst of resin-y goodness. Very good, but Id expect no less.

Draft at elliott bay pizza. Pours a brilliantly crystal clear medium gold with tons of nucleation columns and a nice creamy white head. Drippy lace. Big fresh pine and tangerine nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, grapefruit, pine, and tangerine on the mid palate. Oily, bright, and acidic. Long heavy bitter finish that stays crisp and resinous. Beautifully done.

12oz bottle courtesy of Anndiesel. Filtered honey orange-tan. Foamy, soapy off-white head. Fruity, tropical hop aroma. Quite an awesome IIPA, really captures a clean, fresh hop feel. Drinkable despite the massive ABV. So clean, there is really no unwanted syrupy action going on here at all. This is just a great example of the style, not unlike Hopslam or FFF IIPAs. Smooth honey-tinged finish.
