Without a doubt the boldest, hoppiest, biggest mother of a brew we have ever created. More than 50 lbs. of Washington State Cascade and Columbus hops are infused, injected, or otherwise inflicted upon a single batch. Welcome to hop country!

Pours golden with an amber hue. It has a brilliant sweet citrus hop aroma. That same characteristic from the hops comes through strongly in the flavor. Surprisingly light for a beer at 8.5.

Rated on 3-19-2013. This bottled beer pours a medium sized fizzy off-white head that mostly diminishes. The aroma is citrus, pine hops, grapefruit, and caramel malt. The flavor is citrus hops, moderately bitter, caramel malt, and has a semi-dry finish. This beer’s mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. This is a sipping beer. It is a hop head beer and too hoppy tasting for my palate.

Bomber courtesy of Brooke (thanks!). Rust orange pour with a dirty white head. Aroma of herbal, grass, pine, little bread. Tastes are sweet caramel, grapefruit, lemon. Thick oily palate. Pine bitter in the dry finish. This had been sitting for a while, so may be different than fresh. Well put together though.

Salmoniform (1180) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Copper hue with off white head that dissipated to a ring. Huge aroma of malt, honey, tangelo, Lilikoi, melon, grapefruit, papaya. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is malt sweetness throughout with a wonderful hop bitterness in the finish and finishing clean. Overall this is a great brew!

Expected big hops nose and caramel color. Flavor has the usual resin, citrus, and malt sweetness of a DIPA. Seems like they tried to balance the 50 lbs of hops with a lot of malt which throws off the flavor a bit. Solid but I’d like to see a bit of change-up in the hops to see if Silver City can balance the DIPA a bit more.

Bottle (22oz). This is a very drinkable double IPA. Hippy but not overly so. First sip had some flavor that surprised me but I did not get it again so could not identify. Would get again.

fiulijn (15750) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle from Jamestown S’Klallam Longhouse Market & Deli, Sequim
Light amber color, bright, with small creamy head. Aroma of biscuity malt and manure hops, tomato sauce, iron. Lean moutfeel, a bit oily; the malt flavor is a bit sweet and oily, with a light biscuity touch, followed by strong bitterness; the hopping is quite resiny.
Good but not exciting.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear reddish amber color with a moderate frothy off-white head. Nose is quite hoppy, with some subtle grass and strong citrusy grapefruit notes. Taste is moderately bitter, yet stays fairly light. There is also just a hint of some sweetness to it.

Pours a brilliantly clear deep gold with a sticky, tall, white head. Earthy hop aroma. The flavor is smoothly bitter from start to finish. Medium body without being sticky sweet at all. I’d like just a bit more hop flavor to improve on this one.

Rich copper coloured body with a light amber glow, some orange coming through and a very nice, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of tons of fresh grapefruity and resinous hops, a lot of sugars, some apricots and a pungent malt note - very nice smelling - mouthwatering, even. Full-bodied; Strong hoppy flavour with sticky resinous notes, some good caramel malt flavours and a pleasant sweetness while showing some good aftertaste. Aftertaste is pleasant and well rounded with malt equally as strong as the resinous and slightly piney hops coupled with an apricot sweetness, some light honey and a touch of bitterness at the end. Overall, a nice Imperial IPA with some good flavours, a moderate complexity and a subtle sweetness at the end. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 27-September-2013 for US$6.99 sampled at home in Washington two days before leaving for Portland, again on 04-December-2013.
